Every year on 8th of March, International Women’s Day is celebrated to commemorate and honour the movement of women’s rights. It’s been 18 years since the millennium and majority of the women are still fighting to get their due recognition in every domain, be it home, workplace or society. On this day, the entire team of popular mythological TV show Mahakaali Anth Hi Aarambh Hai come forward to speak about women empowerment.
The actors of Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s Mahakaali Anth Hi Aarambh Hai urge women to speak up for themselves and fight for their rights, this International Women’s Day
Kanan Malhotra - In our culture, women have always been heralded as symbols of sacrifice. This quality of sacrifice has been tagged to a woman and has perpetuated a hidden agenda of exploiting women and keeping them subjugated. It is not uncommon to find the elders, the parents and the so-called wise in the community to be often blindly offering the advice of 'sacrificing for the sake of the family' to women. These pieces of advice are generally showered on women when she acts in the interest of her 'self'. She's advised to sacrifice when the men in her life do not want to make an effort to support the interests of the woman. This advice is given time and again when she is being made the victim of exploitation by her family. Not only that, she is often taken for granted. It’s women’s day and it is the time to teach men to be more encouraging and help women come out of the hell that they are going through. It can be illustrated by the fact that it is us who are responsible for the diminishing strength of women.
Hitanshu Jinsi - It's extremely unfortunate that we are surrounded by people who are against equality. Such kind of sick mentality disappoints me. Crime against women is increasing with each passing day because we don't have strict laws for the culprits. Be it male or female, everyone has the right to do what he or she wants to do, to wear what you like. It's high time that people should change the way they think. I don't know how long women have to wait to be considered at par with men in our society but at least we can demand strict laws for crimes against women. This needs to start with families first. If family teaches a girl to be strong then no one can harm her. We make a girl feel inferior to boys and that makes them weak. In my opinion, women are not physically as strong as men by nature. But it is a woman who has to bear the pain of childbirth and undergo labour pain too. Make her feel proud the way she is, love her, respect her and EDUCATE her, the rest will follow.
Pooja Sharma - As a woman, I don't feel the need to be on par with men. I am only interested in bringing my highest potential to the forefront. I believe in celebrating my womanhood every day and for that, I don't need anyone's permission or approval because I am the master of my own destiny. Male and female are the creation of nature and both need to be celebrated and neither is below the other. As in regards to freedom, nobody can give it to you as its an attribute of the heart that one cultivates from within.
Sourabh Raaj Jain - I personally feel it’s not about either of the sexes as anyone who is determined to be empowered and works towards its goal and ambition, breaks away all its limitations. Yes, in older times the number male achievers were more than female. Even during those times, we have examples where women have proved their mettle in various fields. Domination of one sex on another is relevant even now in some backward minds. But now finally times are changing, where all one needs is a will to win.
Jai Harsh Varadan Dhull - Firstly, it's not easy to change anything in a small time frame. Women's have rights and are doing much better in every field. They are achieving heights and are making our nation proud. Still, women have to face many problems just to complete their desires. I will not compare women with men at all because, for me, a woman is much stronger than a man, both physically and mentally. Women are often blamed for everything. Even if she is a working woman or not, she has to look after her family. If anything goes wrong, she is to be blamed. The woman's enemy is society and the women herself. Even today, though the times are changing, the thinking of many people is still very traditional and narrow-minded. And to overcome this, I feel that women need to fight for themselves. I know things often go wrong when somebody tries to change something. But the only option is that whosoever is being oppressed, has to raise her voice, and scream so that everybody hears her.
Vijhay Badlaani - According to me, now women are more superior to men in all departments. Nowadays, they are in the top positions due to there vision and brain. But unfortunately, as our society is male-dominated, the credit always is taken by men rather than the women.
Pratham Kunwar - Women are superior to men which is something that has come into play over the years. But I guess it will take some time to manifest completely. They have the power to give birth to men. Every generation of women will have to push the envelope a little, and do it tactfully without stepping on toes. Men are not bad but they are just creatures of the habitat and follow societal norms. But they are willing to change.
