The place of woman in Indian society
Man and woman are like two wheels of carriage.The life of one without the other is incomplete.Neither man nor woman can be true to what they are,if either of them leads an isolated life.Man and woman both contribute to the development of each other's personality.Our ancient scriptures assigned woman a place higher than man.It was believed that while man represented the destructive aspect of nature,woman represented the constructive one and that blessed is the home where women are given due respect.
In ancient India women enjoyed full respect and honour and were regarded as the better halves of men.No sacrifice was complete without women participation in it."They enjoyed rights equal to men,with full liberty to receive education and prepare themselves in thier own manner,to face the arduous battle of life.They had full voice in the settlement of matrimonial relations.Keeping in tune with the ancient India in modern India too women are the builders of the nation.They have distinguihed themselves in various spheres of life and have proved their efficiencies as-politicians,statesmen,orators,poets,scholars,doctors,diplomats,women ministry and women ambassadors.
Such distinguished names as Mrs.Indira Gandhi,Mrs.vijaya Lakshmi Pandit,Mrs.Sarojini Naidu and Mrs.Aruna Asaf Ali had established their worth to the curious gaze of orthodox Indians and to the relevent amazement of the world.Women have assumed responsibilities not only of their families but also of the country and are contributing to the good governance of the world.
It is heartening to note that today,we have in India the educated ladies who are very keen on taking up administrative work.We are amazed to see what a wonderful work women are doing in offices as typists,clerks,receptionists and officers.It has been noticed that they are quick to understand and very efficient in work and they have won the applause from the bureaucracy.Moreover,they cheer the applause with a sweet smile and they can win over others to their point of view.All important services have been thrown open to them.They are competiting for Indian administrative services,Indian foreign service and other many spheres too.We have women as magistrates,judges and revenue officers.They are cool headed,dispassionate,objective and impartial.
Women surely have an important role to play in modern India of today.We are busy with our plans of national reconstruction,rural uplift and an all-round development of our country for its progress and prosperity.In the social,economic and political spheres,women too have to shoulder the responsibilities along with men.Women have shown their worth in almost every sphere of life.The day is not far when the Indian women will not only catch up with their western counterparts but also regain their honourable status.
