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!!

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
