Empowerment of Women!
by Dr.Varanasi Ramabrahmam Bookmark and Share

Empowering women is not removing them from homes and make them job seekers. Empowering women is to allow them to take their own decisions under the loving, able and wise guidance of parents, near and dear and teachers. Empowering women is not making them blindly follow the dictates of "modern" intellectuals in the form of anti-traditionalists, atheists, family-less wayward NGOs and the like self-appointed and self-promoted "social reformers".

Even men, who have been enjoying freedom all these centuries, need counseling in these days of anarchy, and rule of criminal-dominated, competitive, money- minded ruthless materialists and businessmen. Empowerment is individualistic. Individuals know their selves.

If they want they follow tradition they will follow. Others have no business to object for this. If they are attracted to the apparent freedom provided by modernity they will follow that path. Let us allow them to choose their way. Not prevent them.

Finally it is they who have to live their choice and face the consequences. Let not intellectuals decide for girls or boys what path they should take. Parents, well-wishers and other concerned people must have a say on the life and its course of their children.

I totally agree with you, Doctor ! I particularly appreciate your bold statement that, these days, even men ...need counseling in these days of anarchy, and rule of criminal-dominated, competitive, money- minded ruthless materialists and businessmen.

The subliminal messages being transmitted through advertisements, ghastly music, prominent press-coverage of the prurient, et. al. seem to be attacking at the very core of our innate strength as a civilized society (this is true, all over the world, not just in India) by weakening our 'viveka-shakti' / power to discriminate between what is right and wrong, for us.

It is about time we collectively axed the 'Axe Effect' and its clone-brigades !

'Anything goes', at what price?!

What is the cost of the mindless 'Joke-ee or nothin' pleasure-above-all, hedonistic tendencies?

A great song sung by the irrepressible Kishore Kumar comes to mind : Main to chala, jidhar chale rasta ! Mujhe kya khabar hain, kahaan meri manzil?! (I go, wherever the road goes ! I don't know where is my destination!).

Quite a harmless song, forty years ago, when there was no gigantic 'World-wide-web' to lure/entertain/per-chance, deceive & trap you !

I am sure with such sane voices like yours coming forward with such clear-cut, firm views, we are certainly going to be victorious, in our fight against this 'hidden enemy', sooner or later !

Jai hi ho !

Ganesh.
