J.K Rowling: Her Unfathomable courage to fight all Odds alone that came in her Way

If women like her exits then why do we assume that women are weak, they cannot take up their life on their own!! I find the statement so very untrue, after I actually went though many such successful stories of women who have to struggle all alone without anything at the back to help. One of those stories that I had the opportunity to go through was that of “J.K Rowling”.

Once she was found quoting that, “By every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew”. It’s astonishing and at the same time perplexing for all of us to hear such words from such a successful who is the author of harry Potter which has been converted into 73 languages person but that is true. This lady had the courage to transform every adverse situation in her life into a positive one. Millions of the copies of her book have already been sold and it has also through its movie adaptation and sponsorship accrued over $20 billion.

But even after such a gigantic success, why did she admit being failure!! Because it was not an easy task to obtain the success that she is living with, today. It had taken years of perseverance and hard work to take the taste of this success.

The Story of this Exemplary Lady

When she started with the idea of writing the book Harry Potter, she got a big shock by the sudden death of her mother. And, that was the time; she had to take break from writing her dream book. She was completely devastated by this sudden death of her mother and she could not continue with her work.

In order to get out of this tragedy in her life, she had to take up the job of an English teacher in Portugal for around a year. She went from her place to get away from the grief she had been facing because of the death of her mother. Later on living in Portugal she decided to complete her first Harry Potter book. But unfortunately the way she had planned, things did not work accordingly.

The story of her grief did not end here, at the same period of time when she could not complete her book, her marriage broke off and she had on her shoulders the responsibility to raise her daughter all alone. She had nothing, no job, nothing to eat, no source of income, but still she felt motivated to work on her book while her daughter was asleep.

But, the beauty of a woman is in the fact that he has all the power to sustain every bad situation and have enough of love for her love. Even in such bad circumstances she never left writing and that made her the winner. She found happiness even in having nothing!! Even when she was done with her first book she had to face a great many of rejections from various publishers. But she never was over with her hopes and kept on doing her work with love.

Her story is an inspiring one and it proves that a woman is compassionate she loves to make people around her happy and that makes her happy. But that does not mean that she is powerless to overcome her fears. The story of J.K Rowling is an inspiring one for all those women who are struggling to get a position in the society and stand for their love like she kept on pursuing writing even in the worst situation.

The Strength in Being a Housewife

Empowerment is not about forcing women to step out and work but the real empowerment is about respecting their way of life. If a woman wants to sit at home and then look after the children and the home she should be respected for all that she does. It is the time for us all to understand the fact that no matter a housewife does not get a salary at hand for everything that she does the amount of hard work and the great chunk of time that it involves is more than any other job.

If one does a job, it’s just that the person has to work in a single filed but think about a housewife who has to be skilled enough to handle everything from being a psychologist to a housekeeper to a cook to a day care teacher to a chief executive officer to many more. And, that too she does not get anything from this. Let’s talk about some of the roles that she plays at home and that gets unrecognized for that matter…..

1. House keeper

And, if she would have been working as a housekeeper in some organization she must have been getting a salary of about 3000-4000 per month. But a woman who works all day long even on Sundays and she never gets paid for it anything. However she gets bullied at a number of occasions for what she does all day long. Her housekeeping activities include a number of tasks from housecleaning to cleaning and laundering.

2. Personalized Cook

Personalized cooking for as many as 3-4 people may be charged from standardized rates around 6000-7000 Rs. A housewife cooks whatever she is ordered from any of the members of the family and then most of the times she is not g9iven due respect for it. Folks we really need to be careful about that!!

3. Day Care Teacher

Thinking of hiring a day care teacher or a tutor for your children to look after their studies and work for their school projects, gives you the blues of spending around Rs 6000 to Rs 7000. But we all should be thankful to all those ladies who happily stay at home to make our lives stress free. But we often don’t value that!!

4. Computer Operator

And, if you will think of hiring a computer operator for helping you with all your household works related to computers, you may have to spend as much as 5 K to 6 K. But a woman’s acquiescence to love leads her to do it for you 24*7 all through the day. Why do we forget praising them for all that? It’s high time; we need to learn to respect this relic of power and strength.

5. Laundry Operator

Think!! How much you will need to pay if you have a laundry staff at home!! May be you will have to pay around 3k to 4 k or more for doing up laundry for whole of the family. But gratitude is all for the woman at home who saves that part of your money by doing it on her own. She deserves to be respected!!

6. Driver

A homemaker proudly takes time to drive her children to the school and she also drives at a number of occasions for taking care of various household obligations. And, what do we do to her for all the energy and time that she pours in for the same. Had she not been there you may have to pay for the same and hire a professional.

7. Janitor

A woman as a house maker makes everyone feel safe by getting up all night if she ever feels that any member of the family is not feeling safe. She makes sure that everyone is in deep slumber inside their cozy blankets. And, you don’t feel the need for a Janitor at to make yourself feel safe!!

8. Accountant

The woman at home acts as the accountant of the house and she takes care of everything!! You do not have to worry about taking care of the budget and everything; she will manage it for you. Imagine the expanses you may had to bear had she not been there.

9. Nurse for kids and elderly

At times, when there is a need, a lady she will become a full time nurse for her children and elderly at home and she will bring that sleight of the hand in handling her work. From the beginning of the day to the end, she takes care of everything.

Seems, a woman who chooses to stay at home just to take care of the home and family is a real superwoman. If ever she would have worked it out professionally she must have been hired on a package of 45K. What a piece of creation of God a woman is who does it all for no financial gain but just as a gesture of her love and affection. Here, at www.womensdaycelebration.com, you can read a lot about the power of women and what she has contributed to the society.

2. Sports Media

Although, there are lot of women working in the field of media but the sports media is generally not considered as a cup of tea for the women. A sport has always been considered as a man thing and that a woman cannot dare to do something great in the field. Women area always considered to cover the lifestyle section!

The transports industry too is a male dominated industry and if you can hear a woman driving a bus that can be considered as the symbol of the world going on the path of success.

Prema Ramappa Nadapatti is one such iron lady who dares to take up the career and break the stereotype. Off course that way she is doing well for herself but she is also doing well for the society by giving woman to take up the career without any fear. In Bangalore, she is the only BMTC bus driver. She took up the career when her husband passed away so as to support her family. For here daring step to choose the career of a bus driver she often is referred to as “Daredevil”.

Often in our society, parents worry, if the girl steps out of the home at night because it’s not that safe for them. There are number problems they can get stranded into!! And, with this kind of society setup and such mentality of women it’s hard to imagine a woman detective. The job needs one to spend a great chunk of the time spending out at night.

But, Rajni Pandit has broken the stereotype and has become Maharashtra’s first private detective. It was during her college time that she resolved her first case and gradually with the support of her family she became a private detective.

It is the woman who manages the home with so much love and so much dedication without affecting anything else.

Women Empowerment is in itself an empowering issue and it is equally a vast one!! Unless and until we can see an equal number of men and women everywhere and in every field it is not going to be a world speeding its growth with empowered women.

It’s not just the words that are testimony that women are the foundations of the society if men are the pillars, but there are uncountable deeds of women that make the statement a truth.

It is very tough to identify any single reason why empowerment would contribute single handily to the development of the world. Here we have a jotted down a few of those advantages that future will see with the increasing awareness in the field of Women empowerment. Here we go…

1. Children would be more aware and sensible towards choosing a better life

No matter what, it is only the mother from whom children learn their first lesson. And, so a mother would be confident, learned, educated she would be in the better position to teach her children the sense of living sensibly in the society. Therefore, children will learn the better ways of life both at the workplace and at home.

2. There would more hands to work on issues that the World is grappling with

Only a small chunk of total women population of the world will actually be working while most of them stay at home and look after the family which should be infant the job of both the male and the female. Imagine the egalitarian society where both male and female work hand in hand to tackle various issues the world is grappling with.

3. There would be better minds to look after the management

It is a proven fact that women are managers than men!! If they can manage their homes so beautifully then why can’t they be great managers at the workplace. Given they are in any type of work, women can manage it all very well. There are women in the present scenario in various fields, like Priyanka Chopra, Arundhati Roy, Sushma Swaraj and various others who are proving the fact very well.

4. There would not be any kind of Discrimination

If the women are empowered enough to fight for the equal right that they are fundamentally entitled to, then there won’t be a need to fight for the equality of women. The right to Equality will be Preserved and better implemented and the society will get better and empowered minds to work for the betterment of the world.

5. We will get to have a more Civilised Society

A civilised society is the pillar to the growth of any nation!! And, with the empowerment of women, we can have better chances for the growth of a civilised society. This will in turn help the world with a coherent and flourishing society. Be it any field, women will get an opportunity to participate and contribute towards the development of the world.

So, these are only a few of the future implications of women empowerment that will genuinely help in the growth of the world. Women empowerment should be the key issue of every country because it is indubitably a very important topic. Though, in the last few decades the world has fought many of the atrocities implicated upon wont to empower them, we still have to go a miles to achieving a better and civilized world with more and more women coming at the forefront.

Civil Services day, 21st April: Highlighting the incredible Achievements of Women Officers

The month of April with a date dedicated to civil services compels people to think about the contribution the civil servants make to the society. And, when talking about those atrocious women who dare to fight against the gigantic perennial gender inequality, we cannot forget to mention some names. It is an accepted notion that the bureaucratic system is not a woman’s cup of tea and only the male have the intelligence enough to set them up into the arena. But, the unfathomable courage to fight against whatever is not justifiable has proved that her excellence is incomparable.

There have been some exemplary women out there who have fought gender inequality with a dream to conquer their dream.

In various cases you may have felt being trapped into the ill practices of some corrupt civil servants. These officers work passively and become a part of the corrupt system which they are supposed to fight but the fact that none of them are women makes us to celebrate womanhood. Moreover, there are many of the women officers who have broken this trap of being trapped into the trap of corrupt politicians. The tribulation of women officers trying to work honestly doing justice to her job in the patriarchal kind of the bureaucratic set up, has been unbearably frustrating. But, she has been able to do justice to the justice she was fighting for.

Here we have compiled a list of women officers in the bureaucratic set up to throw light on their courage to take up the task:

1. Rajni Shekri Sibal:-

This courageous IAS officer of the Haryana cadre has played a key role in exposing those involved in the JBT scam which was related to junior basic training for teachers.  This exposure had resulted in convicting 55 persons, which included some high profile people including the CM of Haryana, Om Prakash Chautala and also his son Ajay Chautala. She did not come under the political pressure to change the result of her investigation which led to her transfer. In order that, the results did not get tempered by some unwanted elements, she wrapped the almirah containing the results, with bandages and a 4 metre long cloth. And the keys of the almirah were sealed in an envelope. Her courageous approach busted the group behind the scam.

2. Sanjukta Parshar:-

She was an outspoken and blunt police officer who was a fear for all the Bodo militants. While she was serving her tenure in North East India in the Sonitpur district as the Superintendent of Police, she arrested around 64 militant, took down 16 and also seized a large amount of arms and ammunitions. She chose the police force, even thought she has got 85th rank in All India ranking in UPSC.

3. Durga Shakti Nagpal:-

She was selected from the civil services exam after securing 20th rank in the Punjab cadre. In her very first project while she was working as a trainee IAS officer, she fought with the land scam of Mohali.  Consequently, she gained national attention for exposing the sand mafia. Besides that, she formed an investigation team in order to go to the roots of illegal sand mining on the Hindon and Yamuna river banks.

4. Mugdha Sinha:-

She was the IAS officer of the Rajasthan cadre, 1999 batch. Under her tenure she launched a crackdown in Ajmer district related to the illegal mining. It led to her transfer within four months of her being inducted into the team. But her determination to work for the good of the common man did not end there. Many, student, farmers and traders came out in her support. Currently, she is serving as the collector of Jhunjhunu distrt.

5. Ira Singhal:-

Not only, being a woman, is a point to celebrate in case of Ira Singhal. There are other reasons too! She is one of a differently abled woman who in 2014 topped the Civil Services Exams and she fought a long battle to get to the place where she is today. She is suffering from a medical condition called Scoliosis in which there is a deviation in the spine. She was rejected initially for her physical condition and could only get what she deserves after she won the case; she had filed in the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT). But that took 4 long years.

Educating women, Educating the World!!

What comes to your mind, when I say women education? Is it the education that is associated with curriculum, the one which we get in school and colleges? You are right indeed!! But to add on to it, we must also know that, education does not necessarily mean getting acquainted with the knowledge that we get from the books we are provided with. It’s a symbol of making oneself independent; independent in our thoughts, our idea, and independent to take your own decisions. If somebody claims that he/she is in favour of sending girls to educational institutions and he will never advocate the idea of women going out all alone independently and doing what her heart says, than to be very frank that person is not less guilty than the one who is against sending girls to schools and colleges.

Educations mean an overall development!! We must embark on a journey to an all round development of women. It has to be both in the area of literary and non-literary education 2which include everything from, healthcare to the profession to technical education to vocational education and many more. It has to be concerned with improving skills and knowledge of women in every field so that, she no more has to depend on others for her work to get accomplished; not in any respect.

HOW IS WOMEN EDUCATION IMPORTANT

Now, primary education has been listed under the fundamental right and the day women of the world get educated on their fundamental right to primary education, nothing can stop the society at large to grow and flourish at an extraordinary pace. Probably, the world is waking up from the deep sleep it has been in for last many years and many Government and Non-Government organizations are taking pain to spread awareness on women education. If the change keeps on taking shape in a positive direction the way it is doping now, the real change for the good of the society will soon be manifested. Here’s how educating women can incredulously change the face of the society:

1. FIGHTING HUMAN TRAFFICKING

It’s quite true that women who are uneducated are more vulnerable to human trafficking and they get trapped more easily as per a data released by An Inter-Agency project of United Nations on human trafficking. Women education can significantly contribute to reducing the $32 billion human trafficking industry. And that will in turn significantly contribute to making the world a beautiful place for all us to live together.

2. POTENTIAL TO EARN AND STAND ON OWN

Educating women also enables them to be financially independent and to independently take up her expenses on her own. In that way she does not have to live under the burden of taking anyone’s favours. A study by UNESCO has revealed that one year of increase in the primary education results in enhancing the wage of a girl by 20%.

3. POVERTY ALLEVIATION

It is of paramount importance to educate women so as to fight the long lying problem of poverty. With education women become able to earn and contribute to their family’s expenses and so to the society. No much economic and social change can occur without educating women. If women get educated she can educate the whole family and thus make them able to contribute to the society.

Though, till the mid of the nineteenth century, parents only took interest in educating girls in the household work but with changing time, the change in the thinking has tremendously got effected and parents have become more aware of educating their children irrespective of the gender. Women education should be related to making them aware of taking care of their social, civil, economic and political rights. This will in turn improve the condition of women in society.

Story of the Phogat Sisters: The Courage that Encouraged Woman!!

An inspiration for many out there!! The story of the Phogat sisters, who have, with their velour proved to the world that nothing can diminish your potential, a woman, who,  in general believed to have feeble physical stature can even fight into the wrestling ring and can win against the male. One thing the story of this great family who took all the shit of the people to encourage women to be a part of something like wrestling which is generally not considered a women’s cup of tea is that, it is we, the society as a whole who can instill a sense of faith in their minds and make them achieve what they would not have ever imagined. In case of Geeta Phogat or the Phogat sisters, their parents or their father mahavir Singh Phogat who, without listening to people’s discourse of keeping their daughters go with the long standing rule of women looking after the affairs of the family and kitchen. He gave us all an inspiration to help women by being bullish to the potential of women and show up their real potential.


A LITTLE TALE OF THE PHOGAT SISTERS!

In a place like Haryana in India, girls hardly think of competing with men in the wrestling ring. Their parents have the biggest dream of getting their daughters married as soon as possible and get free from the responsibility. Nevertheless, as said, exceptions always exit who transform the face of the society with their velour. One such example is the story of the Phogat sisters who have proved that there is nothing like hardship and bad luck, if you are disciplined and are following your dreams honestly. Phogat sisters hail from Haryana, India and all six sisters Geeta, Babita, Priyanka, Ritu, Vineshhave and sangita excelled in wrestling. Vinesh and Priyanka are the daughters of Mahavir Singh Phogat’s brother who died in a family feud, after which Mahavir Singh Phogat took care of them. Geeta, Babita, Ritu, Vineshhave are the daughters of Mahavir Singh himself. It was he, who realised that, wrestling is there blood, doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl, he will train them and take up his dream of winning a Gold medal for India which he could not win because of the circumstance.

Their success has particularly drawn attention from across the country, for Haryana being such a place where the social issues like gender inequality, female foeticide and child marriage is prevalent. Whereas, three sisters, Geeta, Babita and Vinesh are Gold medallist of the commonwealth games in different weight categories, Priyanka, Ritu and Sangita have won silver medal at the Asian Championships, gold medallist at National Championships and age-level international championships respectively.

MAHVIR SINGH PHOGAT: THE MAN BEHIND

Mahavir, who belong to Balali village in Bhiwani district, adroitly took up all the abhorrent comments of the villagers, showing up belief in his daughters and thus believing in his dreams. He enamoured serendipity for the village to their daughters to him, to his family by sticking to what he believed in!  With a pervasive belief in the power of women, he showed that, women are not only competent enough to work towards their own dreams but they can become “harbinger of hope”, for fulfilling the dreams of many out there.

He got inspiration, to get his daughters involved in sports like wrestling, when in 2000, Karnam Malleswari from India, won the first Olympic medal in wrestling. His inspiration come from, the idea of his own coach, Chandgi Ram, who even in worst circumstances made his daughter to learn wrestling. Though, at times his wife, Daya Shobha Kaur would be worried for his daughters, and about their marriage, that who will marry her Pehelwan daughters. But that thought was not enough to wobble his faith. He did not even care, about people, that by bringing his daughters into wrestling, he is making the village become a sham for the country.
