Sounds sombre… it will only stop with women being assertive of their own rights.
So i was writing this week in response to the reaction of a Christian from a southern Indian state who felt India is changing, it was never like this before…Let’s admit, we bastardized our own religion, fossilized the great ideas given by our Lords and created this Varna system.
Concurrently, we men (gender inclusive) also created and institutionalized patriarchal system, a dominance of a male gender over female, irrespective of the merits and often at the cost of innate vulnerabilities that the fair gender is born with.
Both are in servitude towards dominance of a state, that worked for millennia, at the cost of many. It’s a time for change. Seeming change in political ideology won’t be any resemblance to the actual and deemed change to these fundamental aberrations of justice.
Both, the class and varna mobility as well as gender equality has to rein in for a true freedom.
