Human thinking and effort has its own deep import. Its grand results can never be ignored. On changing the direction of the extra potential of the unconscious mind that influences it via the invisible subtle environment those mind boggling transformations seen can only be called a dawning light that is the inspiration of the unseen divine controller of the world. In it where is there place for human effort? It is purely directed by the divine creator or Almighty God which at its own appointed hour in its own way tends to manifest. Have we ever seen human endeavor in the process of change of seasons?
In the last century women backwardness has been witnessed in a manifold way especially in under developed nations. Maybe colonial rule and undesirable elements prevailing for a long time are responsible for it yet in the immediate sense it is not as though someone has tied chains round women in a despotic manner. On the basis of creation and destruction many a time reactions are seen with slow speed for a great length of time and when it ripens fully an explosive kind of situation sets in. in reality its basis has been cast well in advance and on gaining an opportunity it erupts akin to a horrible ulcer.
All this has been spoken of so that instead of pointing at some immediate event for these undesirable conditions we must also see how previous efforts with slow pace are continuing to labor. Plants eaten by worms and a withered tree may seem to fall off due to an ordinary blow yet it is the process of it getting eaten up previously for a fair bit of time that is responsible ultimately. The same holds true for gigantic events related to creation. The world public’s anger gathered over a long time span have resulted in revolutions yet its root cause spans over a great length of time. This then is fate or destiny. The unseen’s wondrous program is executed on this very basis as mentioned above.
In these days waves of women awakening have been noted. The great Yogi Shri Aurobindo calls the 21st century as the ‘Mother’s Century’. Although at the national level or at the world level no such movement has been initiated yet the divine creator has already set about doing so. Many creatures well in advance can gauge potential movements in nature via ESP or extra sensory powers and they themselves move about and perform strange actions. In the same way Shantikunj (Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India) too by correctly inferring future possibilities proclaims that the 21st century is full of such potential wherein world that can be called the pinnacle of progress. Definitely we will see a Women’s Era at an amazing extraordinary hour.
Why will this happen? Who is responsible for it? This may not be answered via logic but those who are capable of gauging movements in the subtle world they can never challenge this premonition that instead of the situation remaining as it is an unseen divine power is executing wholesome useful changes in this world.
Over and above democracy this demand is noted that since human original rights has been given due assent then why not give the same to women along with voting rights? A long time lapsed by when such efforts were made. Progress no doubt was seen slowly and this wave passed on from one country to another. Today the situation witnessed is in the form of a major chunk of the world assenting women’s rights. Only a handful few of them are becoming a mockery by obstructing women’s liberation.
Regarding this why should we search world history for details of dawn of progress, various world movements, birth of talented people and other important events? Today if we see situations around us we can say that speedily mind boggling changes can be seen.
Regarding women’s advancement India has been looked upon as regressive. Over here it is very natural to accept traditions of Sati or burning to death on the husband’s funeral pyre, giving a daughter as charity in marriage, child marriage, selling females, Devadasi, raping them etc and without any opposition all this goes on ceaselessly. Women have been totally ignored as far as education, profession, political rule and leadership is concerned. Even today the tradition of wearing a veil continues. She does not get permission to get out of the 4 walls of her house and carry out important tasks of society.
Political authorities have proclaimed that 30% parliament seats will be reserved for women in India. People zestful about this are demanding 50% reservation. Programs are being made to render women’s education free. There is a high probability of women getting voted right from Lok Sabha to Nagar Palika.
Keeping in mind Islamic Laws our neighboring country Pakistan voted a female Prime Minister and very suddenly all bondages pertaining to women were loosened. In Afghanistan a women’s army that wields all kinds of weapons are exhibiting their prowess. Regarding this those revolutionary reforms introduced by Turkey’s Kamalpasha preparations are being made to execute them anew. Japan’s women confidently claim that they will not only shoulder parliamentary tasks but will take up tasks of various important fields in a big way thus proving that not only is women power not less potent than that of their male counterpart but in fact exceeds it by miles. In fact it was unethical political governance that previously rendered women weak and withered. When the fog surrounding women’s issue is disappearing hook line and sinker why should she henceforth lead a downtrodden oppressed life?
Two women of Indian origin have attained a high post in UK’s and USA’s military. Three buses of Delhi Transport Corporation are driven by women and one controlling group of a jet of Air India has only females in it. In heavy traffic areas women police are seen to direct and control traffic movements deftly.
Akin to Afghanistan even Iran has built a women orienting battalion for its army and it is led by a woman brigadier. Libya’s Col Gaddafi too is following suit. This president opines that women are much more valiant, trustworthy and skillful in comparison to men. In many security forces women wear male dresses and are armed with weapons.
The future of women truly is bright and definitely she will march ahead in various arenas of living. Those who as per changing times in this era of competition in one’s family or contact area encourage and help women lead they will definitely benefit a whole lot like progressive rational people. Those who lag behind will remain indolent and will ignore women issues will definitely remain backward. In fact perforce they will have to do what majority of the world does. One will only repent that despite times changing we in a prejudiced manner kept saying ‘we will address all these issues later’.
