Thank God! I am born with silver spoon. You know what does a silver spoon means for a girl. This is not being rich, this means born in the family where at least your parents take care of your needs, feelings and rights. Alas! This silver spoon is sometimes not being enjoyed by the women in so called elite families. No wonder, you must be confused now. Ok. Let me clarify it. Once I heard a girl who was leader of some union talking about equal rights. The definition of equality was defined in terms of roaming on roads late at night because boys can do so. Oops! She also encouraged the girls to fight against the hostel authorities to demolish all the restrictions to come late. Not only this, some people also define equality by stating that they have given same facilities to girls as they have given to boys in the family. But I ask you, if boys embarrass girls and tease them; do you also want to tease the boys? Is this what is called equality? In my opinion, girls do not need anything equal to men. Both male and female are human beings. Why our so called society cannot understand that a female is also a human like the male counterpart. Right to education, Right to be self dependant, Right to take own decisions, right to follow social and cultural practices, Right for social protection are human rights. Then why it is being considered as a favour. This is not something which is reserved for the boys and providing these to girls would be a special opportunity. How ridiculous our social system is! Hey Girls! Wake Up. You do not need the right to commit crime because boys do so. You do not need to tease the boys because they tease girls. You do not need to roam unnecessarily on the roads if boys are allowed to do so. The only thing that we need is the appropriate attitude of the society and an improved social system. I seriously wait for the day when people would not debate on the issues of women empowerment, female foeticide, girl education and so on. Because that will be marked as an end of the dark era which is full of discrimination. To bring this change, first of all girls need to understand their own value. I seriously suggest all the girls reading this article, plz stop thinking that giving birth to a male child is gonna increase your importance in family. Plz Stop thinking that a high profile marriage with a lot of dowry will help u to have a better life style. Plz stop thinking that marrying a rich guy will determine your success. Plz stop thinking that fair complexion will add your value.
