It was beyond my imagination

That my life has no proper destination 

I was always made to remember that I was a girl

And for a job I need not crawl. 

It was said that my fate was in another's hand

And I was made to stay in the old land 

My wishes were turned into ashes 

After the bitter beatings of the fate's slashes

Whever the known required guest comes

The entire environment changes

The love, affection, importance which was in my fate

Takes a sudden turn towards the known guest

The freedom that I liked most 

Was always allowed, but with a responsible host

The little things that I always required 

They made it sure that I was always been provided 

I always liked to go on a tour 

But it was miles away from my door

He was always allowed to do what he liked

But I was sometimes been deprived.

Gender equality is not a woman's issue, it is a human issue because it affects us all. 

Why it is not easy being a woman? Why we need to keep fighting for our rights? Why always we have to tell the word that we are no less? 

Now the time has come when we can say and show that we can do almost anything. We can swim the deepest ocean and climb the highest peak. Because we are strong, beautiful, compassionate, much more than these words. A woman can be anything she wants as long as she decides to never fear anyone. 

In a society, everyone has the right to lead his/ her life accordingly without any discrimination. When this state is achieved where all individuals are considered to be equal irrespective of their caste, gender, colour, profession and status, we call it equality. The most prevalent discrimination is gender inequality. 

Discrimination is social menace that creates division. We stop being together and stand together to tackle our problems. This social stigma has been creeping in the underbelly of all the society for many centuries. But in this century, women and men enjoy the same privileges. The perception is changing slowly but steadily. 

The social stigma of women staying inside the house has changed. Nowadays, girls are equally competing with boys in school. They are also creating landmark development in their respective profession. Women are creating examples everywhere and we all should highlight it to change the scenario and give them equal rights. 

And one thing we can say, gender equality prevents violence against women and girls. Societies that value women and men as equal are safe and healthier. Though the society is changing slowly still then every woman should build her own stand.

मोहताज़ न होना पड़े "
