The term equality in India is definitely a joke.
In a remote village, a man had carried his wife’s body since he was from a reserved and backward class .
In another incident, a patient was given food on the hospital floor. She was from a backward class and a poor family. The hospital staff said they didn't have plates to give food. So give it on a floor? Bravo! They could have at least used a paper if the condition was so bad.
A businessman’s son drives away after ramming his Mercedes in a 35Yr old killing him instantly.
A Bihar teen was shot because he overtook a JDU leaders son’s SUV.
And he was left out on the lack of evidence ?
Still, these are very small people. Let's take an example of Salman Khan. All his supporters spring out of their shells if anywhere anyone says he is a murderer. They say he has done so many donations to charity, helped so many people and blah blah. Over on top wears a t-shirt which says “Being Human” Are you kidding?
Everyone knows he murdered the people driving his car in a drunk state. Long story short. He got out, very quickly. His time period in jail was not even close to commensurate.
If you are an avid reader of news you may be knowing all this already and i don't have to give proof for everything.
There is a powerful quote which says “Power belongs to those who take it” And honestly i have started believing it too.
Okay, we all know the justice department of our country is S.H.I.T. The people know it. The government knows it. Hell, the justice department, themselves know it. We have to wait for years for equality/justice even though these two terms are very different, they do run into each other many times. Each and every other day i read rape news, on news, in papers, websites. Yes, “Horrendous” is a very small term to even start defining such incidences. But talking about rape against men has become a taboo? People get mocked and laughed at if they come out saying they were raped by women.
Women are sexually harassed by their bosses. Totally and utterly shameless act by such ‘Guys’. I said ‘Guys’ because “Men” is a term not known to these people.
Anyway, no one talks about men being sexually harassed in office environments by their female bosses. Talking about India growing as a developing country, but are these not a factor which also needed to be discussed while talking about growth?
Women are talked as a weaker gender but in most parts of the country a mother herself tells her daughter to not talk to men in a harsh way. Behave as a “Girl”. Patriarchy nor matriarchy, neither is a solution. Two wrongs can never make one right.
Okay, let me tell you an example. “I KNOW WHAT IM PUTTING DOWN IS IN THE WRONG WAY BUT THE OUTCOME NEEDS TO BE SPECULATED OVER”
CASE 1] There is an office, where a male is a boss, he has a team working under him which is developing some project. A “male” worker does some atrocious mistake intentionally or unintentionally. The boss comes to know about it.
He calls him in his office and abuses his very badly.
People will term it as a boss trying to teach his worker.
CASE 2] There is an office, where a male is a boss, he has a team working under him which is developing some project. A “female” worker does some atrocious mistake intentionally or unintentionally. The boss comes to know about it.
He calls her in his office and abuses her very badly.
People will term it as a verbal abuse against women.
CASE 3] There is an office, where a female is a boss, she has a team working under him which is developing some project. A male worker does some atrocious mistake intentionally or unintentionally. The boss comes to know about it.
She calls him in her office and abuses him very badly.
People will term it as a female boss removing her anger on her workers.
CASE 4] There is an office, where a female is a boss, she has a team working under him which is developing some project. A female worker does some atrocious mistake intentionally or unintentionally. The boss comes to know about it.
She calls her in her office and abuses her very badly.
People will term it as a boss being a boss.
I'm definitely putting it a wrong way but this a real life scenario what happens in offices. Any type of abuse is not only against women but also men.
When i narrated these examples to a coworker, He said “Dude she is a woman” We are not supposed to talk in that way to women, of course, we shouldn't but is it okay to talk in that way to men? When did this become equality?
The fact that we tell our kids to not talk to a person in a particular way because she is a woman is the fundamental and root problem of the inequality. Nobody should be talked in a harsh way or abusive way. We tell kids, do not raise their hand against women because she is a woman is the root fault. The fault is in us and not in them. They should be taught that violence against any person is bad, be it a girl or a boy because violence is gruesome act against any gender, and not because “she” is a woman.
Again, these are my opinions, I'm not forcing them on anyone. You are definitely open to your own ideas.
