Is Education alone Is Enough for woman empowerment

In last few years, we have seen considerable improvement in women education in India. More and more women are coming out of houses and are opting for education in India. That is why we are seeing lot of women on top positions in India. Women have overall seen considerable improvement in all areas. Today we see women in education, in Government, in teaching, in research and in forces. Today they are the CEO’s of top companies. They are running successful businesses.
However, here arises a question, have these empowerments of women resulted in any improvement in women real life. The answer is no because women are still under lot of discrimination in India, whether they are educated or not. Let’s give you an example by sharing a true story of Mrs. Rana a lecturer in college and Ramawati (both changed names). Mrs. Rana is highly educated and she earns handsome money. Her salary is more than her husband, where as Ramawati is an uneducated women and earns a small amount of money by selling vegetables. Her husband sells fish and earns equal to her.
Mrs. Rana even after being highly educated and earning handsome money does not have any key role in the major home decisions. Her advice was never sought after by anybody. All the decisions are taken by her husband alone, whether it is decision of buying a TV, Washing machine or a Micro wave. She is only a spectator. Even she has no control on her salary. She has to ask her husband for money. Not only the matters related to money but also the major matters like children education or buying a home, are taken by her husband alone. She was only reduced to a puppet.

Do you expect this type of situation of highly educated woman? But this is true with many educated women in India. On the other hand, Ramawati is an illiterate and earns less. Still she has the full control of her family. She takes all the major decisions of home. She takes all the decisions related to purchasing, or saving. Her husband does give all his money to her. She controls everything perfectly. She is not the sole decision maker, but she has major say. Her husband respects her decisions. She is also involved in major works in her locality. Her advice is always sot after. She was known for her skills to effectively managing her family. She is role model for many women like her.
Why there exists this difference? A highly educated woman is incapable taking even her decisions and an illiterate woman who not only take her decision, but taking the decisions for hundred of others. Is there any thing wrong with education? Obviously not, Problem is with the confidence level gained by the person. Education is the one way to gain confidence and financial independence. But this is not everything. However we can change our education system to make it friendlier and confidence builder. We should also encourage our girl child to come out and take the decisions from childhood itself and not to force decisions on her.

We should give deep look in to this matter and work for better development of women. We should work on other parameters, other than education to improve the situation women.

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…

Why people migrate from Villages to Big cities? Cost of living in Big Cities and Side effects

Around the world, big cities have become a great reality and today, our major pollution lives in these big cities. Moreover, the expansion of these cities is still on with migration of more people from villages to big cities.
The major reason for the migration of people from villages and small towns to big cities is the availability of employment.
Employment is one of the major needs of every individual because through it he can earn money to live a comfortable life.
Big cities offer an abundance of employment opportunities for different classes of society. From a highly educated person to a laborer, everyone can find a good job in a big city because of good demand of such services. Therefore, many people who migrate to such big cities settle permanently in these cities and increase the size and population of such cities.

Does the effect of coronavirus is overrated?

Today, we see the whole of the world gripped in the fear of coronavirus that some of the countries have even crippled. There is no doubt that coronavirus is a new and deadly virus and; we don’t have any cure available to fight this virus. However, still, the effects of this virus are overrated and we fear too much from it. People around the world fear so much from coronavirus that they think that its end is near. In the recent post, does the whole world die because of the coronavirus outbreak? I have tried to highlight this issue.
It is clear that it is a deadly virus and we need to take all precautions to fight it; however, fearing too much from it is not a good idea. The death rate from this virus is already much-much less than many other diseases present in our world and this virus is more dangerous for the people who are already at the risk. The steep fall in stock markets across the world also show this nature of the world that we are losing all hopes.
All this is happening becaus…
