Womanhood in the Twenty First Century – 2015

Mankind achievements in various fields compromised in the lack of progress in human relations with discriminatory practice cherished among those reining control over global society.

The prevalent prejudice based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender and socio-economic background is the strategy to polarize world for individual and selective groups vested interests.

The gender bias against women in the twenty first century demonstrates civilization decline considering women  progressiveness prior to hegemony era. 

Contemporarily the treatment of women is appalling worldwide and in the western society in particular with false projection on gender equality.

The women hired to disparage womanhood for political reasons and vendetta could not possibly belong to female gender and such engagement signifies serious ethical insolvency given the participants affluence.

Furthermore, the volunteers’ characteristics are revealed in the process and confirm self-degradation in promoting opinionated characterization for specific agenda.

This is yet another evidence of exploitation exposing the source and desperate means in the self-destructive involvement.

The taxpayers funded broadcasting network misused for propaganda clarifies the system being grossly abused to serve the self-proclaimed privileged society and their convoluted disposition.

In providing platform with defamation objective i.e. projecting women as nothing except objects of voyeurism is a reflection on the culture and women status in the respective domain of those behind provocative indulgence.

Western democracy and women’s rights is a myth with misogynist orientation prominent in professional, political and public arena.

Ignorance combined with presumptuousness could be an abyss for those refusing to honor women excellence since time immemorial.

Regardless behind successful man is a great woman proved until the present time.

The male chauvinism is highlighted in condescendence towards women ignoring the fact on motherhood.

The motherhood experience in the birth of a child and nurture leading to the existence of a man or a woman in the world could not be slighted on any grounds. 

Not to mention the outstanding accomplishments by women despite barriers and glass ceilings to prevent them even in the modern age. 

The eastern origin is fortified with tremendous contributions from women in history.

Spiritualism relevantly Hindu religion grant the highest position for women represented by Goddess Durga as Sakti – the energy in life and all creations in the universe.

The equal partnership depicted in Siva-Sakti, the dynamic duo as inseparable divine forces epitomize the importance of feminine attributes facilitating creation, preservation and restoration of matter.

Hindu Goddesses ParaSakti, the invincible recognized for incredible valor in dealing with negative elements wreaking havoc on earth and netherworld.

Goddess Saraswati personifies knowledge, arts, music and cultural endowments.

Goddess Lakshmi revered for prosperity in every aspect.

Indian heritage also pays tribute to womanhood in saluting mother earth as Bhooma Devi, sacred cow worshipped as Gau-Mata also known as Annapurani meaning benefactor with cornucopia  of food for global consumption.

Mother nature – rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati, Cauveri, Godavari, Narmada and Gomati to name a few in the tributaries proliferating life. 

Poignantly Bharati or Bharat Mata – India is the motherland for 1.2 billion people. 

The language identified as mother tongue proudly spoken nationwide and across the globe by Indian diaspora.

Last but not the least, the distortion and mockery of current divine mission alluding to gender confusion is notably self-contradictory. 

In English language – the references She or s(he) and woman otherwise wo(man) conspicuously related to unisex / cross gender pronouncing male association with fe(male).

Interestingly the pronouns have male following the female perhaps emphasizing the significance of womanhood not necessarily acknowledged to the fullest extent!

Peace to all!

Thank you.
