International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.
Since those early years, International Women’s Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women’s movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women’s conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.
It’s incredible and unbelievable that a woman plays various roles and that too with love and full enthusiasm. “Woman”, she is a mother, a sister, a wife, a daughter and the most dedicated employee at her workplace. She is indeed the pillar of the society on whose shoulder there is the onus to take forward the existence of mankind in a smoother way. She is generous, passionate, and audacious and she knows an absolute solution to all the problems.
Not only she is externally beautiful but her inner strength is the most beautiful thing on the earth. She is the one who gives life to a life. No creature but a woman can give you everything from love to respect to strength. And the prettiest thing about a woman is she does everything without expecting anything from the other person. And it’s really essential that we encourage her to showcase her extraordinary occult strength and help her nurture that power. International women’s Day is one of those occasions that give an opportunity to celebrate the velour of women and her inner strength. Like many other countries, India also celebrates women’s Day with similar fervour and zeal. Here is an overview of how it is celebrated in India.
It is great that we have a day like Women’s day specifically a country like India which has completely been spoiled by many atrocities against women like rape, dowry, female infanticide, exploitation of women at workplace and many more. Like many other countries, Women’s Day in India is celebrated with the similar enthusiasm. Many organizations public and private gear up to participate in various activities like mass rallies, seminars, documentaries and TV shows. NGO’s workings towards uplifting women organize gender sensitive plays. In India, several organizations are working towards girl child education, eradication of dowry culture and reservation of seats for women in local panchayats. And several of these initiatives have helped in the empowerment of women. Nevertheless, a lot of work is still to be done in the direction including the public and private domain. Women’s Day in India is celebrated to make people aware of all the progress that has been done to date and the work that still needs to be done.
Even at the time when corruption and crime against women has crumbled the society into pieces in India, women should stick to the idea that, “She is the only one who has the power to nurture, create and shape up lives, her voice must not be harsh enough to frighten and get their work done, but it carries a great depth of knowledge and strength. On her shoulder lies the responsibility of building the dreams of each of the members of the family. She should be proud of being a woman!!
Women are always a source of inspiration for the family and the society. Happy Women’s Day.
