Misconception over the gender still existsMany present ladies presumed that the female gender is insulted or under estimated as inferior gender. But as for as India concerned this is wrong concept and those who are telling like this are just ignorant. We, Indians are treating the female gender as superior than anything. We termed the language of one's own as Mother tongue, one's land as mother land etc.,
Swami Vivekananda once was talking amidst youngsters. One person in the crowd asked him why he was giving more respect to ladies. Swami instead of replying him in words, asked to come near him and tide his belly with a medium sized stone with rope and asked him to wait till he call him back. After half an hour he called him but the man with stone found so tired without holding the stone on him. Swami Vivenkananda told him to realize the ladies who hold a child in her womb for nearly ten months as it is not possible to a man even for half an hour.
Adi Shankara clearly explained a mother's role in his 'Mathru Shodasi' through which a mother's role can never be equalized even a fraction is clear.
