Women's Bill

From the last 2 days, there have been ruckus in the parliament, which ofcourse is not a new thing. India has witnessed even worse than what we had seen in the last 2 days. These chaos are for passing the women's bill in the Rajya Sabha.

Though I'm against any kind of reservation, but feel inclined towards this bill. Reason being, it will help women who has been deprived of their equality with men. More Importantly it will help them to stand up and work shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. Being from a Sikh religion, where our Gurus has taught us that Females are NO less than males. They said -

ਸੋ ਕਯੋਂ ਮੰਦਾ ਆਖੀਏ
ਜਿਤ ਜਮੇ ਰਾਜਾਨ

meaning thereby, we should NOT say any bad word/thing to women when they are the one who gives you the BIRTH. Your whole identity/being is coz of them. You must have the HIGHEST regard for them.

Now, coming back to yest. events, in the evening I came to know that after Voting on Women's bill, It has been passed. I was feeling very happy, atleast something has started for the betterment of the women. For those, who has missed my earlier post about Plight of Indian women, you can read here

I was watching the Interview of Sonia Gandhi with Barkha Dutt from NDTV. She said a very beautiful thing:

Its NOT the victory of any party, but the victory of ALL the women's in India

Though her party people are going gaga over this, but she doesnt want to give the credit to herself but to the entire nation's women.

Lastly, I congratulate ALL the women's of India. Though the road ahead is not smooth as this is just a baby step towards what we wish to see.
