The more time one spends with their family, the more they understand their loved ones. I feel so blessed to be born to parents with whom i can discuss my goals and dreams without any hesitation. They may not get things at first but they always lend a ear and listen, respect and consider my opinion in every aspect. They are flexible enough to change their view points based on “What is the right thing to do at the moment?” I know there are many of us whose parents or any family member for that matter are always their by your side. But, believe me not everyone out there is fortunate enough to pour their heart out in front of their parents. Not every girl out their is given the opportunity from the side of their family to pursue her dreams. Even today there are tons and tons of stereotypes related to the profession of the women. Even today the girl is forced to marry to a person whom she didn’t even know properly. There are instances when everything goes smooth but when you look at the dark side of it you will see- marital rape, domestic violence, depression, suicides etc… Can we turn a blind eye to all these happenings? That is where the role of family support comes into play.
The government come up with lots of schemes and policies but that will provide the platform for growth and it will provide a level playing field. The seed of all the consequences begins at home. There are girl students who are forced to do household chores at a very young age but the same family would want their son to spend more time in studies. This sometimes sucks her time out of studies. The foundation remains weak which later becomes hindrance in her career growth. One most common question which most of woman come across is-” When will you get married or have a baby?” If she wants to get married early or late in life and with whom that should be her personal choice. If you are an Indian then let me remind you- Right to marry a person of one’s choice comes under article 21. That is your fundamental right. When she wants to have a baby that’s her personal choice and i really don’t understand why the world or the “so called relatives” are more concerned about the baby. There are many maternal mortality cases out their and the reason for most of them is- early child bearing. If her own parents or her spouse won’t support her during all these phases of her life then whom she would go to?
If you are someone like me whose parents are always there by your side then don’t forget to thank god every day And it’s equally important that we act as a bridge and connect to those who truly needs help. You don’t need an authority to support someone. If you find your friend getting in all these worldly trap then you can simply have conversation with her and also talk to her family members if required. Who says education begins at school? If you find a lady who wants to learn to read and write but could not go to school then you can spare some time out to teach her as well through calls, through videos etc.. The past is gone. I know many of our parents could not receive good education in their early childhood, they were also married early to their age but that cannot be changed. Pondering over the problems won’t give a solution. We are lucky enough to be part of this century where lot of opportunities are available out there for each one of us. The only thing that will help you to recognise these opportunities is your “own desire to grow and your curiosity to tap into the unknown”. And believe me when you want something badly enough then nothing on this earth can stop you. All the boulders would seem like small pebbles.
