    Manusmrithi clearly told that women are to be honored

    Women are honored and respected since decades. To ensure that only we call our country as motherland. We worship women as Parasakthi, Mary, Maryam etc., Evils to women are treated violence since many decades. Manu smrithi clearly told that women should be given respect, share in property and the persons doing evils to women are to be punished severly.
    I read in Manusmrithi:

    Severe punishment should be given to persons who responsible for evils to women and that punishment should be to the level that others should get fear to do such activities.

    The author should have shared this in the article section because it is connected to women empowerment and giving honors to her and also equal rights in property shares. It is the fact that women are given utmost important in olden days and every daughter in law is considered as the Goddess Lakshmi stepping into the husband's house and that is the reason being so she is asked to put the right feet first and enter with good intention and long standing bonding. And in those days the joint family was in vague and every member was treated with equality and the women took the lead not doing any partiality.

    A very good post from the author.
    Ravana was a scholar. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. He was a good ruler. He was a very strong and skilled warrior. He can defeat anybody in the war. He respected his mother. He illtreated Sita. That is the only mistake he did. He lost his kingdom and died in the war. If he treated Sita properly he might have not have lost the kingdom and his name in the history might have been different.
    Karna was a good person. Very skilled warrior. Dedicated his life for friendship. He never said no to anyone. Whatever the guest asked he used to give without saying no. But he talked bad about Draupadi in the Kaurava Sabha and Drapusi cursed him. That has brought his downfall.
    These two are the examples which give us the need of respecting ladies. In a house where a lady is not respected, wealth will not be there, health will not be there and there will not be happiness also.

    I thank author for submitting a post in honour of the women. In our culture there is a tradition of giving respect to the women. We are worshipping Ma Durga and its other forms which is only an indication of our respect to the women fraternity. Women is not only a wife, she is more than that, she is the mother and she is the affectionate sister and these two forms are the most adorable and powerful forms which are given due consideration in our culture.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
