Pseudo Feminism – The new social menace
Pseudo Feminism – The new social menace
Arjuna in Mahabharata war had cried before Krishna speaking that I cannot fight this war and kill my own people. This will widow women which will lead to social corruption. If the women of my clan are demeaned, not only the society will go to dust, the progeny too will loose their moral grounds, our clan will come to an end. Such has been the importance of women in Indian social structure since ancient times.
If you closely observe Hindu rituals, even a simple Satyanarayan pooja, it has to be performed by a couple where certain rituals are to be performed by men, certain by women. The pooja is not complete without women. Women have been regarded as ‘Shakti’ or the forms of energy who propel the ‘Shaktiman’ (man) to perform actions.
Laxmi, Durga, Saraswati have been given the Ministries of Finance, Defense and Education in Hindu religion since time immemorial.
Warrior women like Rani Lakshmibhai, Rani Durgavati, Rani Chinnappa have fought for their honor on the battlefield. Teachers like Savitribhai Phule have taken education to the masses. The average homemaker has ensured the health & well being of her family for ages.
Indian women have been the queens of the households with complete control over the man’s purse to the home administration and assets. They have been authoritative mothers and loving daughters, caring daughter-in-laws until the aping of western culture began.
Now we are more worried about ripped jeans, not about our culture, civilization and traditions being ripped apart.
If you look around, a girl’s mind is being conditioned not to become a good girl but to become a good boy. A smart girl is one who can perform all the tasks which a good boy does. A bad girl is the one who does all the tasks what a bad boy does.
Also, today she is busy in maintaining her figure starving herself, to be not looked down upon, in the society. The movies and media influence has objectified women to such an extent that it is only the superficial covering now, not her whole existence. She is spending a huge amount of time, money and energy just to look good.
Look at your mother, how she held her family together with undying devotion and single focus. Aren’t we indebted to her for the way she brought us up? Will the girls being conditioned in today’s mindset become similar mothers, daughters, wives, daughter-in-laws or even humans?
Were the arts of making pickles, home made goodies, embroidery, sewing, painting, homemaking of any lesser consequence?
Working women becoming successful came at a very high cost. They ended up working at two fronts from being queens of the household, struggling to do justice to both. Feminists please excuse here. I myself am a working women and not saying here that it is wrong to work. I am just saying that this is the cost.
Sumptuous food on the dining tables prepared by the loving women is increasingly become a thing of the past being replace by restaurants and food deliveries. In total, it is also taking away the emotion and efforts which went behind that food preparation.
The homemakers are suffering with a constant inferiority complex comparing themselves with women who are earning money because of the higher social regard.
At the same time, a new social menace rose its ugly head which is noticed by few. Many families are not getting their daughter married until a very late age or not marrying them all because daughters take care of them better than their sons. But in all this, the girl looses her right to live her life on her own in an illusion of being smart.
Late marriages also served as one of the factors to fertility issues and IVF centres bloomed. This took away further confidence from women. Also, now while bringing up her child, they are not feeding the janmaghutti but gripewater. They are busy buying Kangaroo belts and prams for their children to look more modern. All in all, it is about the show now, not the real emotion.
The same menace is also causing the institution of marriage which was sacred in our culture to crumble. With the institution crumbling, so is the future of the kids.
Not to mention that the happiness index has also dropped considerably in our country. The reason is that we are blindly aping the west without taking good things from them. We adopted live-in relationships but didn’t adopt the commitment. We adopted the nudity in dressing but we didn’t adopt the difference between formal and casual clothing and clothing as per occasion. We spend a lot of money now on unnecessary things but don’t celebrate festivals with the same fervor as earlier. Whatever kept the family together and happy is fast loosing its essence.
In the end, let us rear our women to be better women not better men.
Let me just tell you, if you are a homemaker or a traditional woman, not infected by this menace yet, you are very lucky. if your family brought you up as a good girl, you are one of a kind. Remain So. Don’t get tainted.
You are precious. One diamond that your family has.
