Since morning my phone has been continuously pinging with loads of messages. And as it’s now common to celebrate any occasion virtually, how can Women’s Day be an exception to this?
Right from the society to the media every one is trying to prove how special is this day and making women feel more dignified. Surely we are worth it. But again this question keeps pondering in my mind. “Are we worth of all this praise and honour only for this single day?”
I believe if we keep aside this gender based bifurcation and look at ourselves as a HUMAN first, then every day will be worth celebrating.
We are living in an era where everything seems to be updated, modernised and so do our lifestyles. Over the years women have raised the bar and are shining brightly on the horizon. But when it comes to success, how do we define it or what parameters are used to measure it? Refined social status, dignified jobs, laurels and qualifications, stardom…. Yes today’s woman has definitely achieved all thi and is soaring high in the sky. But a large section of the marginalised society needs to be addressed as well. Those who are underprivileged, less educated, lacking highly paid jobs are still doing their bit. In fact, our society is the perfect blend of these diverse categories who are moving ahead no matter what comes their way.
While a multitasking, laden with highly acclaimed degrees, 21st century lady is crossing all the milestones and adding all the features to her crown, we have the striving lady too somewhere hid under the innumerable responsibilities and away from the so called development of the modern age, but still doing her bit to make all the difference in the lives of their loved ones. So every woman is Special in her own way.
Woman is not an object to be used but an individual soul who also have equal freedom and respect. Unfortunately this fact has been overlooked imposing burdens and harassment on women. But it’s not in any way an obstacle that has refrained the brave ladies to limit themselves. They have overcome all the hurdles and triumphantly marching ahead.
There is hardly any sphere left untouched by women. Right from the kitchen to the space, from the life making schools to theatre, from the offices upto the administration, women are proudly spreading their wings everywhere. There are the fighters like Sindhutai Sapkal who whole-heartedly devoted her life for uplifting the orphans despite being less educated and poverty ridden. There are many coming ahead and bringing in the change but those too who need a little help to prove themselves.
So all this success, progress just because we are Women or a living being made of flesh and blood and controlled by our brains, labelled as Humans. Our society doesn’t need only one type out of this man and woman thing. It’s made of both. And to sustain life, we need a society free of gender bias. It’s good to celebrate our womanhood but with humanity at it’s base.
So let’s celebrate this Women’s Day with a deeper and widened perspective of being an intellectual living being and continue to do so to rejoice every day as Women’s day.
Wishing all the dignified women irrespective of their education and social status but still trying to add meaning to life with whatever we do, A Happy Women’s day today and everyday. Cheers to life..Cheers to womanhood!!!
