Occurrences in different parts of the world
Today two columns draw attention on web pages of two English news papers .
‘New York Times ‘ published a writing “The Good men of India “ . Though the writer is Indian , yet this is an window for global citizens to have an idea about what is going on in other parts . While survey says 1 among 10 men have assaulted a woman physically in India , it has a disreputable position acquiring 10th position in gender disparity . Since nothing totally perfect and there is no hundred percent Black & White of anything , this work is solace for men like Date trees in a desert .
Not only to complement men but while revealing the bitter truth we find to a large extent women are responsible for other woman’s discredit and affliction . Be it a traditional mother-in-law being a ruler of status quo Wikipedia or a scoop delivered neighborhood dame . Not a big difference between them and so called modern Indian women . The difference is only in a degree holding attire who might works outside .
The reasons are (1) they are not clear about the concept of ‘traditionalism’ & ‘modernism ‘ . (2) they are captivated within the mentality of ‘second rated citizen’ . so, when they get to do something at par with men feel they do not deserve to be there and a candidate of quota . Being in any position , they conduct themselves as a commodity first then as a person . Since this is the trend , men feel insulted while showing them their fault . Why should one real person be accepted in such an atmosphere ?
Yes, certainly there are some practically dominated women but the condition should be they are supported by other powerful men/ lobby by same physical appeal . This rampant praxis do not care whose daughter / wife she is . In fact women depreciate themselves to climb the success of ladder . Again this is open secret that those women who do not compromise to these norms they are considered as not competent or out of place .
So, when men do not find obstruction from a larger section this is perk for them to wipe away a raising voice for expediency .
(3) Yes, Indian men are more family oriented than some other counterparts . Again the truth is Indian women lose their own thinking , identity, worthiness , ambition to husband . They are just puppets in the hands of male partners . Few men use their women as barter commodity to get their own promotion , business deal etc. In lieu of that those women get all luxuries , awards and considered good women in a deceptive society .
In such environment if some one out of the door of four walls or geographical boundary inspires for realization of dignity , serene , worthiness in women , the society barks and bites them like hungry animals .
No doubt there are good men but they are less and brainless , mulish mentality of men and women make the situation uneasy and unsafe .
On the other hand Indian daily English news paper published a news piece ‘Man who pushed US to the brink of debt default ‘ . The man is none other than Ted Cruz . Since all great leaders say being a land of immigrants the country USA do not see where you came from but who you are , What is your contribution to the society . In a nutshell deserved person find a land of opportunity in north America though problems exists because there is no heaven in the universe without endeavor .
Mr Ted Cruz himself is second generation immigrant but sheer selfishness , arrogance led the country towards partial shutdown . Is not it manhandling democratic powers ?
However , these news pieces are marks of cosmopolitanism which all of us need in each period of time for social and governmental transformation .
