Role of women in modern India

Our Indian sub-continent is gradually emerging to be a powerful and, drawing the attention of almost all the countries across the world. The day of India becoming a superpower may not be far away. Here the role of women becomes highly significant because only in the 20th and 21st century, Indian women and modern India have done a lot of mutual benefits to each other. Though the epics and Puranas glorified and regarded women in high esteem, the practical status of women both in the ancient society and in modern society seems to be the same worrisome and troublesome plight. Denial of education, denial of property, denial of worldly life for the widow have been the severe injustice being imposed upon women for ages. They have been denied equal status because of illiteracy. Gone are the days when women were denied the benefits of education. Education is a powerful weapon of liberation. Today they have achieved glory in almost all the fields where men have won laurels. Empowerment and Reservation for women alone can change the scenario.

Nowadays, we find women occupying many high positions in the government and private establishments. They operating machines, fly aircraft and even manage big industries. Their performance in sports and games are also amazing. The woman is not only a home-maker but also a ruler of the nation as Indra Gandhi did. Some of the notable and outstanding women who ser examples for others are Mother Teresa, Sarojini Naidu, Dr. Muthulakshmi Reddy, Kalpana Chawla, Sunitha Williams, and so on. There is a lot that women should contribute to the nation. They should get employed in high administrative positions both in the public and private sectors. Economical independence is the ultimate solution for the liberation of women from unreasonable age-old bindings and chains. Education is the only solution for anything and everything. The development of our country depends on the empowerment of women. As women are born-creators, their role in the re-construction of the nation would certainly be amazing and thrilling.

” A country or a community in which women are not honored cannot be considered as civilized ” – Gandhiji
