Call From Heart

by Saionee Mitra
(Bengaluru, India)

Sometimes I sit back and wonder, why is the term feminism coined? Does it really help women in their daily life? And most importantly, do they actually need such a sympathetic word? Doesn’t it give a feeling that women are considered inferior to their male counterparts? As to my knowledge no such merciful words are termed for men.

The woman in today’s world has proved to be no less than her opposite sex, yet she faces discrimination. She is even today judged by the society. Whether she wants to be financially independent or lie back at home and enjoy her life is up to her. She should have the privilege to live by her choice. Either be it messing it up or making her best she should be let free. No one has the right to interfere in it until asked for. A woman is born intelligent. She has the capacity to take care of herself as well as others. She doesn’t need a tag of feminism.

Women should not be gratified by the words mercy, sympathy, comparison. She neither needs an opinion nor judgment. She has the immense power to deal with her own issues. And I urge everyone to let her be the way she wants; ‘its her life, her choice.’

It's a privilege to read something so genuine and relevant to's a age old topic to be discussed but we as Indians never come to a conclusion with the same because of the conservative thought process and orthodox mentality .Each one is aware of the dead cells but no one is ready to overcome the disease causing virus called society impression.
