We all have a wonder woman inside us and women are the real architect of society. International Women’s Day glorifies that woman who wants to make a difference, who is a crusader and the women who don’t realize their importance. This day compels all women to reflect upon which way is their life going?
The word ‘Shakti’ is synonymous with woman. Since the ancient times, women were given a high position. Valmiki Ramayan teaches us that Ravana and his entire kingdom was wiped out because he abducted Sita and (Ved Vyas) Mahabharta teaches us that that all Kauravas were killed because they humiliated Draupadi in public. Indian women are generally homemakers, docile and kind hearted. But every generation has seen a change, women have become stronger, influential, brave and independent. Rani Jhansi led an entire army. Indira Gandhi was the first Prime Minister. Mother Teresa was the epitome of love.
We celebrate International Women’s Day each year. The women who have contributed to the nation as doctors, social reformers, engineer, artist, finance, writers and so on. Women are calm in a crisis and can handle any tough situation. “It is impossible to think about the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is impossible for a bird to fly on one wing.” -Swami Vivekanand.
In ancient times women were educated ,it can be read about in Katayana and Patanjali. Women are not born they are made. Women have to prove themselves much unlike their male counterparts. Today in the twenty-first century there is a flurry of activity and women are working in large numbers and working shoulder to shoulder to men but there are some cases of salary discrimination but an assertive will work her way through that too! Women have left their domain and made a niche for themselves e.g Chitra Ramakrishna Joint M.D. National Stock Exchange, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Chairman and M.D.Biocon, Shikha Shartma C.E.O. Axis Bank, Chanda Kochhar, M.D.&C.E.O. ICICI, Nita Ambani Chairman, Dhirubhai Ambani Foundation and Kalpana Chawla , the astronaut and the first woman in space and the list goes on. Educated women are just on the threshold of transition from tradition to modernity. A word of advice to women from Shatika – They should love life and live it to the fullest. They should be aware of their strengths and talents. They should leave any situation better than they found it. They should seek beauty in life and find peace within themselves and the world.
