Even after multiple years of independence, even after women have managed to encroach on many aspects of the professional realm, if you look at the present data in India, we realise, with utmost disappointment, that women are only relegated to the domestic domains and are not given as many rights as an individual in a democratic country should get. A woman inevitably plays multiple roles in a house- the role of a mother, the role of a daughter, the role of a sister, and many more. Here, however, it is extremely important to talk about the role of a woman as a mother because a mother not only brings forth a healthy child, but is also responsible largely for the biological, social, biological as well as psychological growth of a child. It is therefore understandable that if a woman is not healthy, and more specifically, if a pregnant or a lactating woman is not healthy, the child that she’s going to bring forth is going to be affected on multiple health parameters.
It is one of the saddest facts of the present time that people do not take issues related to mental health in a serious manner. If somebody wants to open up about their feelings and thoughts to another person, then they feel that they will be judged and that their pain will not be understood by the other people. It is therefore probably high time for all of us to come together and spread awareness about the importance of talking about issues related to mental health so that we can together make our society a happy and contented place.
There is simply no doubt about the fact that children are the future of any nation. A country where children are given adequate education, proper healthcare management, and healthy environment to live in grow up as an individual who can actually be translated as an asset and not a liability for the country.
Childhood is it supposed to be a stage where children experience the joy of learning and exploring new things and new ideas. This is the time when they get educated, make new friends and learn about new skill that are going to stay with them throughout their lives.
Most of us work to find opportunities to improve our financial conditions and there is absolutely nothing wrong about it. Having a job does help us improve our financial conditions and also enables us to fulfill our needs as well as a desires. However it would be wrong to conclude that we work only for the purpose of earning money. Our professional identity also helps us improve our integrity and self respect. Nowadays, we are moving towards the social structure where both men and women are being given equal opportunities in order to enhance their prospects in the society.
Most certainly, it is not difficult for anyone to establish a clear relationship between health and hygiene. It’s an old age saying that a healthy mind lives in a healthy body and of course, health cannot be ensured if somebody doesn’t have a clean and hygienic environment to inhabit. If you’re living in lush green areas, your health will inevitably be better than the people who are living near garbage dumps, or areas often vulnerable to floods.
A lot of time, a lot of people talk about the concept of women empowerment : how it is the need of the hour to empower women if we want a country with independent and financially secure citizens but do we have a concrete layout in order to determine the success and the empowerment of women in the true sense of the term? It is extremely important for us to understand that empowerment comes in various forms and manifestations.
In the age when small children should be going to the schools holding their bags with free and independent spirits, unfortunately, many children in India exactly that age are forced to be a victim of child labour.
