The Indian Woman Today
The times have changed radically, and the Indian Woman of today is no longer reconciled to her traditional role as a mere housewife, a mother or a daughter. Whether it is a higher education, or the general and fast spreading enlightenment about rights and privileges, and the concepts of equality between man and woman, that are responsible for the distinctly notable awakening among this section of mankind, it is difficult to say. Perhaps the change in attitudes and the increasing demands for a better status in life and a more important role in national life, are the cumulative result of all relevant factors operating simultaneously. The more enlightened women of today take delighting recalling that woman was regarded in ancient tnes as the perfect workmanship of God and the glory of angels.
It is heartening to note that we have in India today the education ladies who are very keen on taking up administrative work. We are amazed to see that wonderful work women are doing in offices as typist, clerks, receptionists and officers. It has been noticed that they are quick to look upon and very efficient in work and they have won the applause form the bureaucracy. Moreover, they cheer up others with a sweet smile and they can win over others to their point of view. All important services have been thrown open to them. They are competing for Indian Administrative Service, Indian foreign service and many other spheres too. We have women as magistrates, judges and revenue officers. They are cool-headed, dispassionate, objective and impartial.
Women surely have a Very important role to play in modern India of today. We are busy with our plans of national reconstruction, rural uplift and all-round development of our country for its progress and prosperity. In the social, economic and political sphere, women too have to shoulder the responsibilities along with men. Women have indicated their worth in a latest every spheres of life. The day is not far when the India women will not only catch up with their western counterparts but also regain their honourable status enjoyed in the distant past.
