Om, That (Brahman) is infinite, This(Universe too) is infinite. The infinite (Universe) emanates from the infinite(Brahman).  Assimilating the infinitude of the infinite(Universe), the infinite(Brahman) alone is left.

WOMAN’S LIBERATION

                                                                    WOMAN’S LIBERATION

 

Woman’s liberation – Is every woman really liberated or the woman’s liberation is misused by a few privileged?  The answer needs a deep insight and analysis.

Women need justice in the society, family and workplaces from the discrimination, insult, injustice, autocracies done to them for the simple reason that they are woman, which is not the mistake of their own.  It is important that people around should know her real value and respect her many credits than projecting her few flaws.  Various people disrespect woman in all the possible ways they know.  Snatching genuine opportunities, disrespecting her talent, dominating her for being a woman, insulting and torturing her physically and mentally are some of the common problems faced by woman all around the world.  She is treated as a slave and not as a fellow being.  Women need justice and woman’s day is celebrated to high light these issues, empower woman, and enable her to enjoy her life.  Woman should realize her own power, talent, liberate herself from her self-sympathizing attitude, depression, frustration, and also help others to come up in life.  These are the big issues that are focused on the woman’s day.  In between these hard big issues, a minor issue conveniently takes advantage and evades every ones attention.  I want to target on this issue – misuse of the power of liberation by woman itself.

  • Many women due to immaturity feel that the advice and good values taught to them as a breach of independence and retaliate towards others in the harshest way.  It is a common issue most families face in this modern world.  What does woman mean by liberation  – should not be corrected even for mistakes? or do they need liberation from a good protected family life?   It is not possible for anyone to live life according to a person’s likes and dislikes alone without caring for the society or the family, because we are a part of that.  A family always protects one because she may suffer out of immaturity.  Ofcourse a woman has every right to decide and live life according to her own decision.  But she must have the maturity by growth and not by age to decide about her life, else she will be a problem for the society and the family.  They may not be aware of their wrong doings, but it is explicit and others may view it clearly and a family always protects them from that.  Whether it is the family or the society, a man or a woman, discipline is the need of the hour.  If we fail to discipline our self, then the law or the society will take its due action.
  • It is not only men who dominate woman, many women also dominate their fellow woman.  When someone is weak, instead of transforming them to a strong person everyone takes advantage of the opportunity to discriminate or dominate them.  A woman making a hue and cry about domination has no right to dominate others by the position, power or wealth.  Woman’s liberation should not be used for taking revenge and doing the same injustice and mistakes that men do.  Woman’s liberation is not just suppressing men; instead it is the empowerment of woman, so that she will build a healthy family, society and nation.
  • Getting birth as a woman is rare and supreme.  Each woman is unique and so special.  Unfortunately, many women want to lead their life like man and do the same autocracies they do.  Where does the woman’s liberation lead a woman to?  Power of a woman is beyond comparison.  One has to realize this infinite power and use it in a most successful way.  Woman has their own responsibilities, which no one can share or do it.  Only a woman has the power to run a family in a most successful way.  When woman want to pass the responsibility to someone in the name of liberation, then only her children will suffer.  In the modern world ego has become the greatest obstacle in running a happy family.
  • Woman has equal power and talent to build a strong family and society.  She needs to be highly educated and cultured.  A woman is protected in a family in many ways because a disturbed woman can never make a family successful or be a part of a healthy society.  Only then the family will flourish in her glory.  Only the nations that have respected woman have flourished in the world.  Woman who reach high position with their education and talent unfortunately show their arrogance and high handed behaviour towards others.  Is it not the same arrogance we oppose in men?  Any person in position is disrespected for their arrogance.  In spite of the high education and liberation, many women have ruined their life as well as the life of others by their arrogance and ignorance.  As a result of the liberation they end up with shattered families and lead life in frustration, loneliness, and depression.  Liberation is a sharp tool and it has to be used very carefully, else it will destroy the very holder.  Why should any woman use liberation in the most negative way?

Woman should be respected by others, at the same time a majority of the responsibility lies with the woman to behave in a way so that others will respect her automatically.  Respect and love are the two things that need to be given and cannot be demanded.  Woman must stand by her principles and right values.  She must maintain her dignity in thought, word and deed.

This blog focuses only on a meager percent of the women in society who fail to recognize their responsibilities in the name of liberation.  Either for a man or a woman, ego is a negative trend.  It spoils the family relationship and separate one from the family and friends.  Woman’s liberation should not be misused to build one’s ego.  It will not help the person, the family, or the society.

Again I emphasize that this blog is not for the woman who experience slavery, discrimination, injustice from the society and family for being a woman.  This blog attempts to throw light on the women who ignores the families and insult the very people who have raised them to power and position in the name of woman’s liberation.  If liberation is misused it will harm the very person who misuses it.

On this woman’s day of 2014, being a woman, I post this blog because woman is prakriti, she has infinite power in herself.  Let no woman misuse this infinite power out of ignorance.  Our liberation should not make us blind and arrogant.  The true liberation of a person is in the thought and not in the action.
