The Journey Of Togetherness.
Let us start The Journey of Togetherness with your new friend that is me.
Hello, world !!! This is my first article. Let me give my introduction first. I am Shubha, a passionate human. Confused??
It is obvious to get.
Some say, passionate writer, some say passionate blogger. I am sure most of you reading this must be thinking like, Why is she calling herself a “passionate human”??
My answer is as simple as anyone else. I will explain how. It is as simple as anyone is passionate about anything or any work of his/her choice. I am passionate about the life which God has given me. I value it and want you all to value your lives in the same way I value, and this is the prime focus of The Journey Of Togetherness.
The Journey of my life.
Most of you must be thinking that my life must be problem-free or I am too much satisfied. But this is not that much true!!! No one gets satisfaction in this universe. Everyone has some hidden causes, which often bring sorrow. Everyone is fighting with some emotional breakdown at some point in their lives. Whether rich or poor, alone or together, each one of us is dissatisfied to some extent. Everyone has their challenges. Every person struggles so hard to overcome their pains or keep untold secrets of their hearts.
People often tell me that I am quite expressive, emotionally strong, and can always find ways to bring things back at their places. They often think of me that I am a so happy kind of person that can make everyone happy around her. People recognize me to be a problem solver.
•A positive Transformation.
But I was not this way about twelve years ago. There was a time when I was in depression and heartbroken because of an irreparable loss. This was an accidental death of my younger sister to whom I was most attached in my life. I was just lost. I didn’t know what to do, how to remain alive. My parents were in such a condition that no one could imagine.
But time flies, and it did. I accepted the truth, and I learned to deal with adversities. Finally, I knew the value of my life. I knew how to find satisfaction in every situation, which created dissatisfaction. I started feeling pains of people around me, and here my new Journey started.
•Being woman is not easy.
Being a woman is not easy; all of us know. Whether you are a male or female, you must have seen struggles in your mothers, daughters, sisters, or your own life.
“WE ARE NOT WEAK, WE ARE THE PROUD CREATORS. ONLY WE HAVE TO DO IS
TO CARVE OUT OUR INNER TRAITS TO GET FLAUNTED GRACEFULLY TO THIS
BEAUTIFUL WORLD. LET US CELEBRATE WOMANHOOD”
You must be knowing that female children are often given the advice to learn how to be calm and silent and endure whatever happens to them. And at the same time, a male child is advised to learn the opposite of it. For the same situation, a girl is seen as guilty, and a boy is excused by saying,” he is just a man. Women are neglected from their births, and this negligence continues until their deaths. Girls get advice from their mothers and grandmothers from the very start of their lives: “You have to listen to your husbands.” What does this listening mean??? Don’t we have our brains? Are we unable to judge between right or wrong??? Or we have to sacrifice our voices to be fair partners???
Have anyone among you heard a mother teaching her son, that “Listen to your wife, she has left all her relations and home only for you.” If a mother starts teaching her son in this way, no woman of this world will be a victim of domestic violence. Let us begin the journey of togetherness against all social evils against women.
•Girls vs. Boys in our Society.
Girls are always taught to wear body covered dresses to hide themselves and their beauty from those evil raping eyes. Is this true? Does rape happen only to the girls who wear short skirts? Does rape didn’t happen to the girls who wear Salwar-Kameez or full dresses? We have seen so many brutal incidences when the victims are innocent children. Ask yourself. Are my questions wrong? Have these questions never appeared in your minds?
It must have appeared, but we all keep mum because we think we live in a men-dominated society. Women are not as strong as men are. Women feel unsafe when they question those staring eyes.
We often hear that a girl is abused for dowry. She is beaten, mentally harassed, or even put on fire by her in-laws. We must have seen or heard many cases happening around us. And we think we are getting modern day by day. Question yourself, Can this modernity end the evil practices which are in continuation for so long to abuse and harass women?
•What A Girl Gets in return of her Sacrifices.
A girl leaves her parents to adjust in a new environment and with all unknown people, but even after so many sacrifices, her in-laws harass her if she cannot bring a lump sum of dowry. Is this fair?? We need to change our mentality. To call ourselves modern, we have to change the wearings of our thoughts before our bodies. We all have to understand that both are equal, and the world needs both equally to run this beautiful world.
We should start changing the mindset of men in every possible way. Who are these men? Are not they present in our own families as our fathers, brothers, uncles, sons, and husbands?
Yes, they are. And they are even quite protective of us. Why can’t we start changing minds from them? Can’t we teach them to value and respect women? A woman has the potential to create the world. Is she not capable of changing the world created by her?
A single initiative taken by a single woman influence so many minds. If all women unite and start changing their family members’ minds, it would not be that difficult to make this world safe for our mothers, daughters, sisters, and ourselves. Think about it and wait to connect with me in my upcoming blogs. Till then, take care and keep smiling.
