Latest Facts Where Women Stand In India And It's Alarming

I just noticed the world economic forum's latest release which has pushed India at 108th position in the list of gender gap rankings. That is awful as our country where the most sanskari ladies are manufactured has jumped down 21 places from the last release of the world economic forum in this regard. 

I request you to take another pick into account before you decide how and why and all that. 
  • The next thing I found pegged into my mind is the Gender Vulnerability Index released by an NGO naming Plan India. With no wonder, we have Bihar at the lowest or I better say the most vulnerable place for women India followed by Uttar Pradesh. Delhi is third lowest in the index.
  • Goa, which I can call the most westernized state of our country, is the at the top of the vulnerability index. Time to admit now that liquor, late night parties and wearing Western outfits are no reason at all to make a place Unsafe for women in India. 
  • With no surprise to me, Kerala has secured the rank of being second best place for gender equality in our country and the point to keep bold and underlined here is that Kerala is and has been since years the state of most educated people in our country. So, education is the solution to the hallowing issue of gender gap faced by all of us.
  • Mizoram is the third best place that supports gender equality in India and I am taking my note from here that it is the people and their mindset and not the facilities and proximity to central policymakers that would make the deteriorating position of women in our culturally nourishing environment. 
The reasoning behind the ranking of world economic forum is primarily based on equal opportunities and equal pay for males and females in a country. We all know how much to expect when a vacancy post states 'only females can apply'. In most jobs, women are not a fit as they are not supposed to be out at work for late hours or are hardly expected to keep their spouses waiting at home when in an urgent meeting. In short, we in India have an unwritten statement in every job description as to whether it is a fit for a woman or not. The more harsh facts are taken from where a girl is born and parents need to console themselves as well as others by stating there is no difference and also from where a typical Indian wedding where the bride side despite bearing the maximum burden of give-ups is considered as lower or less respectable side.
Those who believe the women to be behind their success should also start worrying now as the gender issues would not allow all of you to have one lady luck even behind you. 
The few who have fought the discrimination in the air and have been fortunate enough to come to the top are those who are being named every time on the name of how well we are doing for the women in the country. Sadly, the actual figures include all not just a few on top while showing the entire world how good India is managing it's gender liabilities. 

Nevertheless, the figures are alarming and we cannot wait for the policymakers to come out with a policy in support of troubled match between men and women in our country.
Time to come on. Breed gender equality in the mind. Education is the best tool for it and the things like what she was wearing or what was she doing at so late in night need to be declared pointless. 

The central ministers have not missed a chance to pat on their back for making India a better place in terms of doing business in the world. Who now is going to take the responsibility of this worsening gender issue in India is what I am waiting to watch!!

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..

Worshiping Krishna.. वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम्..

Shri Krishna Ashtakam is a worshiping prayer devoted to Lord  Krishna praising his powers and glory. Ashtakam means a prayer which contains eight hymns(slokas). Each hymn or verse is composed of four phrases, each describing one quality or great acts of Sri Krishna. And, each sloka is composed in two lines. It is believed that krishnashtakam lyrics possess great powers. Here is the English translation of this holy verse :

वसुदॆव सुतं दॆवं कंस चाणूर मर्दनम् । दॆवकी परमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥1॥
Vasudeva Sutam Devam Kansa Chanura Mardanam... Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum..

I pay my tribute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is the son of Vasudev, who killed Kansa and Chanura and who is the source of great joy to Devaki.

अतसी पुष्प सङ्काशं हार नूपुर शॊभितम् ।रत्न कङ्कण कॆयूरं कृष्णं वन्दॆ जगद्गुरुम् ॥ |2|

I salute to the teacher of this world Krishna, who is surr…
