Now, let's come to the topic. You didn't mention the purpose for which human beings are created and I think the purpose may not be very clear to you. I do not know if there is any way to choose who is the best, more precisely is there any need to choose who is the best? Men without women and women without men signify the same thing. The difference between men and women is in their physical structure and also in the mindset to some extent because of their biological structures. For example, since women bear the child they think of the security of their offspring and their mindset is programmed to concentrate more on safety and security. You must have clarity on the objectives you have and then only you can achieve them. The comparison that you tried to make in this post may be a topic of some debate which basically is futile because some participants can always try to prove they are the best and can live without the other.

Thanks for the advice. I leave the purpose in God's hands since I think He is the Creator of man. So I wrote that God created human beings in the form of men and women to fulfill his purpose. Here "his purpose" is not in the hands of humans I think. And if you put a comma after the word "her" in the thread the meaning will change.
Believe in the existence of God the superpower.
In this pandemic, many men lost their wives and many women lost their husbands. Now when we look at those families we will understand how the life of a person will change when he/she loses his/her partner. My cousin died at the age of 55 years. Now his wife and two daughters and his old mother have to carry on and the troubles they are facing can't be described.
My brother in law's brother's wife died. His two sons are abroad and he has to manage alone his life in his 66th year. His difficulties can't be described. As long as everything goes alright we don't understand the importance of the other person. When such things happen all the people around the suffering persons will understand how important is a man for a woman or a woman for a man.
But leaving that pun and punch apart, I have to state that man and woman are mutually complimentary and supplementary. Only then will life become full.
The Indian culture and tradition has well accepted the Ardhnareswar concept-half man-half woman; means, that n life man and woman are to be joined in equal proportions and individually each constitutes just one half. Without the other half none of them is complete.
It is only a western concept that woman is the better half. Our tradition is Ardh or half each equally in rights and duties. That is why for performing yajnas( or any other important ceremony and ritual) both husband and wife are necessary. Within that also our culture gives a slight higher pedestal when she is the Mother.
