Shackled Freedom :( 2

The title is dedicated to all the women who despite being self-dependent are trapped in the chains of limitations and boundations.

Being a woman is not easy especially in a country where she is worshiped and humiliated at the same time. We have been accustomed to follow age-old traditions where the protocol of a woman’s life is defined before her birth. She has to be within the premises, speak less and low, shouldn’t laugh out loud as this is not how a decent woman should behave in the society.

What brings me to write this is the series of events against women that has left many of us aghast. With so many people preaching a lot about women empowerment, enabling her to come forward and make a mark in the society; we have incidents that clearly shows that being born in the female anatomy brings in a lot of challenges where the biggest fight is survival in the day to day life.

I don’t deny that women have come a long way from where they were a few years back but the irony is that the path has given her many nomenclatures, selfish, self-centered, uncultured, not a family person etc.  I want to question the people is it wrong to live freely, do what you want to do and live the life you want? We talk about equality in rights and position in a condition where a girl child is not even allowed to take birth.

We say that we are living in modern India, but the unfortunate truth is that India itself is living a dual life; one India that we see on television and metro and one India where people are fighting a battle to live and survive and amidst all this lies the life of a woman which is the same in both the worlds.

No matter how much we talk about the equality, rights etc.  all of this is fake until it is backed by educating every section of the society. What is required here is a reform and education to reach each section of society.

Empowering women is not only about educating them but it’s about giving them equal rights and freedom to live the life she wants to.
