We need to treat women with respect and ensure their freedom

NEW DELHI -- ‘More Power to Women’ is a major aim of celebrating UN International Women’s Day on 08 March every year, writes Swami Anand Kul Bhushan Kulive Kulove Kulaugh.

Women give us birth.

They feed and love us; cuddle and care for us till we can fend for ourselves.

When we become children from babies, other women come into our lives: our sisters, cousins and aunties who play with us, guide us and prepare us.

As teenagers, young women excite us, tempt us and fascinate us.

As our girlfriends, fiancés and wives, women stimulate us, provoke us, motivate us, persuade us, encourage us, and inspire us, among many other things.

And yet men mistreat them, bully them, abuse them, deprive them and enslave them. Look at how we pay them less wages, and often, rape them.

The unequal treatment of women makes sorry reading with horrible facts from around the world, including the so-called developed world.

Killing them in the womb before birth, denying them proper education and health facilities and mistreating them is unforgivable.

So highlighting their plight and their achievements despite their built in disadvantages, during just one day in the year to be declared as United Nations International Women’s Day is not enough.

Women’s plight and empowerment are highlighted round the year in many ways.

Much more needs to be done in our daily lives about we treat women with respect and ensure their freedom.

Osho says" "If all over the world the woman is allowed freedom to grow to her potential, there will be many, many women enlightened; many, many women mystics, poets, painters.
.

"And they will enhance not only the woman’s part of the world – because the world is one – they will enhance the whole world.

"Life will become richer."

To enrich us and our world, let us pledge to protect, nurture and respect women.

Not just for one day prescribed the United Nations but every single day of our lives.
