It’s the time of the year that marks the celebration of Navratri in India. Navratri is the festival of worshiping the goddesses of courage. The goddess which symbolizes a lady who is courageous enough to stand for her rights, a lady who is not afraid of anything, a lady who doesn’t differentiate between the doers of injustice, but instead make sure that whoever is the culprit gets punished for their acts, a lady who don’t sulk in pain, a lady who is an idol in real sense. So it’s the right time to recognize and show our respect towards the real living goddesses on planet earth i.e. all those ladies whose conducts showcase that they overcome all the odds in life with the courage they carry.
At the start of this blog, let me make it very clear that I am writing this blog, with all my senses, and I have no regrets for anyone who is “intended” to get hurt because of the contents of this blog. This blog is meant to hurt the feelings of all those females “who think themselves as helpless”. However, this does not imply to hurt all those females who are trapped in such a situation, wherein it’s impossible for them to make their voice heard. At the same time, this blog will serve its purpose, if it is also able to hurt the feelings of all those hypocrites, who publicly preach about the rights of a woman, but in reality, don’t hesitate in snatching away the dignity of the ladies that comes on their radar. Most importantly this blog is to recognize and respect the real goddesses around us, who are brave in their thoughts, as well as, in their conducts.
It is rightly said that tolerating sin, is a sin as well. Not only the one who do injustice but the one who tolerates the injustice done with them are equally responsible. So, all those females who think that they are helpless, and hence don’t stand against the injustice done to them or don’t even try to disclose the injustice that has happened to them, should also be held responsible for any misdeeds that happened with them. Yes, if you don’t have the guts to come out in open and speak for your rights or drag the culprits out and bring those wrongdoers in public eye, then you are making your life miserable. And mind it, by you being silent, not only you alone become the victim of such insane people, but in a way, you help them in victimising the other girls too. Have the courage to speak out ‘LOUD’ at the very first incidence; else you are going to be slaughtered with many such incidences, every now and then, in your life.
Even children know that when they are hungry they have to cry and make a sound for their mother to realize that the child is hungry and feed them. Then aren’t we all in a far better position to understand that without making our voice heard, we may not get what we deserve? Hence, until the time you unveil about the misdeeds that are happening with you, you are not going to get any help, neither you will be able to come out of that vicious circle, nor you can stop such ill minded people. Girls you got to wake up before it’s too late because no one else will help you until you help yourself. If you are afraid that what people will say when you disclose any such incidences, then keep getting scared because people have to say something on everything, and sorry to say that you have no other option then to sulk in pain. And for all those who fear for their life, do remember that it’s better to sacrifice our life fighting against the injustice, then to keep tolerating the misdeeds and continue living a life in pain.
Instead of begging for sympathies for all the wrong that happened with you, have the courage to come out in open and disclose the culprits. Till the time you do this, nothing is going to change the fate. Sympathies are for the ones who fight for their right, not for the ones who choose to live their life getting submerged in the quicksand of injustice. Whatever choice you make, it’s your life and your decision, but do remember that there are girls out there who are bold enough to take their first step and ensure that such ill minded people get what they deserve. All such living goddesses portray that although the circumstances forced them to encounter the worst moments of their life, but still all that suffering could not shatter their courage and they came out bravely in public like a tigress, against all those who did injustice towards them.
Hypocrites, who preach about woman’s right in public, but actually take advantage of all the females that come in contact with them, are like a sleeper cell. They may be living a respectful life around us, as an admired personality. They can be the father, brother, husband, neighbour, boss, senior, colleague, or in any other form. However, their real intentions are known only to the one who gets victimised by their acts. There is no other way to identify such lechers, till the victims open their mouth against them. So, ladies, you have to come out in open and reveal the identity of all these offenders.
All the hypocrite souls out there, do remember that when these ladies overcome their fear, it will be your last day to live a respectful life hiding behind the fake mask of decency you wear on. So better you stop your sinful acts and show respect towards other ‘living’ beings. Don’t treat women as a mere object to satisfy your lust. Don’t dare to misuse your positions to take advantage of the ladies that are in your vicinity. It will be your biggest mistake if you think that the woman is a weaker gender. It’s a woman who kept you in her womb and tolerated the immense pain during the delivery, which males can never ever think of going through. So the next time before you even think of snatching away the dignity of any woman, do remember that she could be a real goddess to slaughter you and your lust.
As I always say that “It’s a high time we male take a pledge, that let the female be our mother, sister, friend, colleague, wife or in any other relation to name with but never ever be our victim”. So sooner the better every male realize woman as an important being on the planet and not an object to fulfil their undesirable lust.
This “Navratri”, make it a point to worship a real goddess, in a real sense. Worshiping in real sense means that we not only give them the respect they deserve as a living being but also recognize their hard work, their pains, their courage, as well as, stand with them in their time of needs. I would request all the females that do realize your strength and never ever consider yourself as helpless. Every one of you is a goddess of courage; it’s just that you have to realize your potentials. As Mr. Muhammed Iqbal rightly said that “Khudi ko kar buland itna, ke har taqdeer se pehley, khuda bandey se khud poochey, bata teri raza kya hai”.
It’s a request on this day of Navratri to all the brave ladies out there to accept a bow, as a gesture of respect. Hats off to all of you, for the courage you depict and sorry that at times you have to bear a lot of hardship. Be safe always in all the ways.
