What does the above topic suggest?. Well, if you think that its gonna b another article where we discuss who's best, boys or girls, then i'm sorry u r wrong. We are definetly not gonna argue about the greatness of men vs women and conclude who is better. How long are we gonna argue and fight about this. I can still remember the heated arguements that we would have in the classrooms in schools and colleges. The boys would always come up with a stupid arguement that they can roam without their shirts and girls cant. Similarly girls would always say that they give birth and boys cant. Those were the silly funny days. I always choose the same topic for most of my extempores. I guess its time for all of us to accept that both are equal. I mean how long are we gonna debate that girls cannot roam topless and boys cannot give birth. Fine guys the point is noted. We are all on the same page. Gone are those days where the girl child is no longer wanted in the family. Now everyone seems to agree that girls are just as gud as guys.
But you know what bothers me. Even some great people tend to discriminate unknowingly. Just to clarify, in an interview, Suhasini(Tamil actress), mentioned about one of the actress in the movie "Peranmai", that being a girl she did a great job. I cant see this as a compliment. Dont you think that saying 'being a girl' sends a wrong message stating that its a negative thing to be a girl. I'm sure that she wouldnt have meant anything or atleast knowingly. coz she herself has directed a movie portraying that a girl can achieve anything. Not only that she has done quite a few movies where she has played amazing roles(manadhil urudhi vendum) which might have been inspiration to many women. Its hard to believe that this thought is so deep rooted within our hearts.
Will anyone believe that there was no such discrimination (gender wise) in our country during the early period(Sanga kalam). You'll be amazed to find the results when you google.During that period(Sanga kalam), women were treated the same way as men. Dont be surprised guys. Those days women were involved in various fields. There were great women poets, warriors, spies and what not. (Instance:Owaiyar, Rani Laxmi Bai, Velu Nachiyar). Only during the medival times things changed. Women of India were mistreated. They were looked down but god knows why.
Now again the time has changed. People no longer think that boys are superior. Atleast not openly. I somehow feel that few have that feeling inside. Otherwise why should people love to watch mega serials and movies where women are made to solve the issues they face in life. Why is it a big deal when a women successfully solves the issues in her life.? Do we have the same reaction for guy. Certainly not. Then why do we make a big scence for girls. Do we expect a girl to wait for her hero to rescue from any kind of problem?. Dont u think that she can handle her own issues in life.
It is not enough if we simply talk that boys and girls are equal. We have to feel it in our heart too. Both girls and guys have to feel that they both are the same. Its not about changing the world and showing our power its a change thats required inside with which we can achieve anything. When someone tells that, "vow, being a girl u have done it", just let them know that it doesnt mean anything. We, women face the same challenge that men face. Just make them realise that we no longer need a hero to save us.
I'm not trying to prove that we do not need boy's help. We definetly do just as they need our help too. Its mutual. Its ok to be dependent on each other for certain matters. All i'm trying to say is no one is superior. Its not a race to win its just a community that we live in.
