As the dictionary says, the literal meaning of the word ‘independence’ is self-sufficiency, self-reliance, autonomy, freedom, liberty etc. Women folks, can they walk safe down the street at night without fear of being shouted at, followed, grabbed, or worse. I think the answer is ‘no’. It’s been 71 years since we are free from the clutches of British rule in India. Today, do our women feel the freedom, freedom from the atrocities against them?
As said by Swami Vivekananda, ‘There is no chance of welfare, unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on one wing.’ But in our country violence against women is increasing day by day. Rape, female feticide, acid attacks, domestic violence, dowry deaths, honour killings, forced abortion, human trafficking, sexual violence, and the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, the percentages of these crimes are increasing every year.
On the 72nd Independence Day of india, let us keep all our differences aside and fight against those issues that don’t make our women independent. She should be raised to be an independent woman and not the victim of anything. In the words of Nelson Mandela, ‘Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.’ india women dependence independence indeoendenceday amdesignerr creative social woman country wings freedom welfare crime liberty art iamdesignerr like share like4like follow me instagram inspire thought country
