Women's Day in India

Women’s day Holiday in India

It’s incredible and unbelievable that a woman plays various roles and that too with love and full enthusiasm. “Woman”, she is a mother, a sister, a wife, a daughter and the most dedicated employee at her work place. She is indeed the pillar of the society on whose shoulder there is the onus to take forward the existence of mankind in a smoother way. She is generous, passionate, and audacious and she knows an absolute solution to all the problems.

Not only she is externally beautiful but her inner strength is the most beautiful thing on the earth. She is the one who gives life to a life. No creature but a woman can give you everything from love to respect to strength. And the prettiest thing about a woman is she does everything without expecting anything from the other person. And it’s really essential that we encourage her to showcase her extraordinary occult strength and help her nurture that power. International women’s Day is one of those occasions that give an opportunity to celebrate the velour of women and her inner strength. Like many other countries India also celebrate women’s Day with similar fervour and zeal. Here is an overview of how it is celebrated in India:

Women’s Day Celebration in India

It is great that we have a day like Women’s day specifically a country like India which has completely been spoiled by many atrocities against women like rape, dowry, female infanticide, exploitation of women at work place and many more. Like many other countries Women’s day in India is celebrated with the similar enthusiasm. Many organizations public and private gear up to participate in various activities like mass rallies, seminars, documentaries and TV shows. NGO’s workings towards uplifting women organize gender sensitive plays. In India several organizations are working towards girl child education, eradication of dowry culture and reservation of seats for women in local panchayats. And several of these initiatives have helped in empowerment of women. Nevertheless a lot of work is still to be done in the direction including the public and private domain. Women’s Day in India is celebrated to make people aware of all the progresses that have been done till date and the work that still needs to be done.

Even at the time when corruption and crime against women has crumbles the society into pieces in India, women should stick to the idea that, “She is the only one who has the power to nurture, create and shape up lives, her voice must not be harsh enough to frighten and get their work done, but it carries a great depth of knowledge and strength. On her shoulder lies the responsibility of building the dreams of each of the members of the family. She should be proud of being a woman!!

People in India also organize plays representing some real incidents of assaults and atrocities on women so as to sensitise people. In that way many organizations affirm the commitment towards safety and security of women at work place and home. Such events also give opportunity to women to learn some techniques of self defence. Women are asked to share their personal experiences and give each other tips on how to handle such situations in life. Many such events in India are concluded by praying for all those women who have faced such violence.
