Today I am writing something in which I deeply believe in. I also want to make it clear that I am just not joining the bandwagon of people talking in the lines of women empowerment in a patriarchal society. I have seen the benefits when women get involved in the things.
Yes, I am aware of the resistances and hurdles women face in every walk of life in this male dominated world but the more women get involved into the thick and thin of the happenings around in the society, more success stories will evolve, creating a healthy ecosystem for further participation. As success breeds success, the wheel of betterment and development will be in motion.
In words of Swami Vivekananda, “Women must be put in a position to solve their own problems in their own way. No one can or ought to do this for them”.
Have we ever thought about what would have happened if women were at the helm of affairs?
I have discussed on this topic few times with my fellow friends and some of the immediate changes that come to mind are as follows.
- · There would be less bloodshed.
- · There would be less of aggression and extremism.
- · There would be softer ways and means to deal with things.
- · World would get more organized.
- · There will be less genocide (female and male) resulting in improved equilibrium in the society.
- · There will be increase of child and female mortality along with overall mortality.
Overall, I would assume, the world will be more beautiful and sane.
While many may argue that there will be downward trend observed on the many parameters related to men, I beg to differ. With the concept of family and nurturing of lives are centered around women, my conviction tells me that with women in control in wider sphere of life, there will be more focus on development. On the other hand, matters like religious dogmatism -a petty one for me and a killer from the old days of civilization, aggression, crime and other similar aspects would be much less.
Through the post, I would like to invite comments and opinion regarding what others think on this matter. With the increased effort from women to get them involved in corporate, politics and other areas of society, I am really hopeful that one day we will have a cleaner polity, more of development and less of corruption and bloodshed with women in charge in equal measure if not more…
