International Women’s Day.

Bhandd Janmeeai Bhandd Ninmeeai Bhandd Mangan Veeaahu ||

From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.

Bhanddahu Hovai Dhosathee Bhanddahu Chalai Raahu ||

Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.

Bhandd Muaa Bhandd Bhaaleeai Bhandd Hovai Bandhhaan ||

When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.

So Kio Mandhaa Aakheeai Jith Janmehi Raajaan ||

So why call her bad? From her, kings are born.

Bhanddahu Hee Bhandd Oopajai Bhanddai Baajh N Koe ||

From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all.

Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Ang 473.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji laid the stone for equality in the 15th century and it is now the 21st century. I wonder do we actually think and take action upon the Words of Guru Nanak Dev Ji or do we simply read. I come to think, that reading is one thing, but understanding and taking action is another.

Female foeticideExploitation.Violation of rights.Mental Abuse.Sexual Abuse. Rape. Torture. Harassment.

                                                      –  This all exists till date.

What can we do?

To make a change, we need to start from our own household. Raise our sons and daughters with equality. Not giving one rule our son and another for our daughter. Some believe a son can do anything but when it comes to the daughter, you begin to question her capability. Some men doubt the capability of their wife and believe them to be inferior. But she can do everything. There’s more to her, than her body and curves. There’s more to her than her physical beauty. She has violent currents, flowing beneath her calm surface. That can swallow you whole. Do not underestimate her. She is the Shakti that Shiv cannot live without. Her, each pore speaks of divinity. Just like Meera. And if she is calm like Sita. She can be fierce as Kali. She is the most powerful being. She can create another being out of her. If she can bring a Saint. She can also bring God, upon earth. Not is she limited just to her skin and bones. She is the light of the Supreme.

  1. Brilliant words. Only weak societies differ between men and women. It shows how weak we are as human beings forming the strata of a system. I dream of the day when we will all be equal!
