I am definitely not an empowered woman because I failed all the tests of empowerment. I chose love over money, I chose responsibilities over rights, I chose working upon relationship instead of blaming and running away, I depend upon my man for all important matters and his opinion matters most to me, I cry on his shoulders because I do not pretend to be strong.
"Yatra naryestu poojayente ramante tatra devta" (God lives there where women are worshipped) says the Veda. Pick up any religious book it talks about respecting women or giving women importance, not a single book or scripture talks about respecting men. Men were given duties everywhere and by any chance if a man could not fulfill the duties he was shamed. Laws, policies, programs are drafted and designed for women. You look around you will find women special buses, train coaches even auto rickshaw. It is all about women so when the advertisement people thought of showing sexual preferences of people they chose WOMEN.
So, again a rape story is making news everywhere and we can see feminists fuming over it. A few days ago we saw what happened in Rohtak and how everyone just jumped into that to make the two girls 'Bravehearts' . And when this molestation story was proved false nobody actually demanded to punish the 'false accusers'.
Dignity is the biggest thing for a human being in this world. People can do anything to save their dignity and they should do, after all there is a difference between animal and human. It is the responsibility of a person to behave in a dignified manner to preserve his or her dignity.
