Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
There are so many fasts that women keep for the men in our families. Why don't we have any fasts we can keep for our daughters?
There are so many fasts that women keep for the men in our families. Why don’t we have any fasts we can keep for our daughters?
Many festivals are celebrated in our country. Some of these festivals are also those in which women of our country keep fast, such as Karvachauth, Halshashthi, Sankashti Chaturthi, Ahoi Ashtami, etc.
For some festivals, women fast by only drinking water while in some only eating fruits. But do you know that these fasts are not for their own sake, but some fasts are for the long life of their husbands and some for the long life of their sons?
Why is there not a single fast in our society for the long life of daughters or their safety?
By the way, I always hear that girls are no less than boys in any way, and in today’s time, parents also give equal love to boys and girls, and educate them equally. But the fast is kept only for the long life of sons.
In such a situation, do we not make partiality with our own daughters? The fast of Ganesh Chaturthi or Ahoi Ashtami fast should be for the child and not for the son or daughter. If you have children, then whether you have a son or a daughter, you should pray to God for their long life.
Isn’t a daughter, a child? Can’t she be given such importance? On the one hand, we say that daughters are our pride, and on the other hand, we discriminate against them. Why?
I do not say that all people display discrimination towards girls. But there is a large part of our society which even today unknowingly commits this injustice with girls. If our girls are our pride, we must pray to God for their protection and long life.
Keep fast for the long life of sons, but do not forget to pray for the long life of your daughters as well while worshiping. May God hear these prayers and protect our daughters in every way.
The matter is simple but worth noting.

Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.

Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
