Freedom to be Myself – Limit Defined

Freedom to be Myself – Limit Defined

“How I wish to be what my heart says. How I dream to fulfil my needs the way I want.
How impatient I am to achieve my goals with the freedom to be me, myself.
It’s my life and I prefer to lead it my way, none of your business.”

Exactly your mind I’m speaking, no?

We want freedom of all sorts. Freedom to live, freedom to express, freedom to follow religious faiths or freedom of press and media. While evolving from slavery, the self-rule thoughts sounded like a comforting relief. Initially, the liberation was the freedom from external interferences that stopped us from doing what we wanted to do. At that stage, the freedom was meant to be the freedom of a country, a society or a large group. Ultimately, it was the freedom to secure society’s existence. Individual interests were not the priority.

Humans have brains and they’re never satisfied with what they get. They want technology to serve them better. They want to harness nature for their pleasure. They want more freedom to do what they want to do.

As the focus shifts from collective freedom to individual freedom, the areas of conflict become many and shockingly intense! When they’ve nations fighting for freedom, the war is between two huge countries. When they’ve social groups fighting for, say, regional or religious beliefs, the war is between two big groups. It may appear otherwise but the second one is more furious than the first.

The third stage when every individual seeks freedom for himself is NOT as liberating as it sounds. The evolution of humans has placed us at a position where each one gives more importance to himself than behaving unitedly. All thoughts are focused on self. Interests of society and nation are seriously neglected.
All this would have been another phase in the evolution of humans that could proudly form a chapter in the history books. Sadly, this situation is not something to be boasted about. When individual interests are given more importance than those of society, the race is on the verge of collapsing.

Provoking thoughts with these words, I sincerely feel that self-priority is required but not to the extent it clashes with the interests of others. Chase your dreams but rules can be moulded to suit people around you. Believe me, self-centred happiness is short-lived. Ecstasy of togetherness is beyond the limit of words.

Pad Revolution!

I’m surprised to see everyone talking about sanitary pads. India is witnessing a revolution, I must say.
From NGOs to Celebrities to Common man, everybody wants to speak up for the menstrual hygiene of the women! It was not the case a few days ago.

Words about menstruation or sanitary pads were (are?) often muted or pronounced in “whispers”. It was (or is it still) considered shameful to talk about menstruation in public. I don’t know about other countries but in India, girls didn’t (don’t) have freedom to discuss menstrual hygiene openly.

The least talked about issue is, today, the spiced content of the headlines.

Based on the real life story of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, the film Padman is successful in hitting the right chord.

A school dropout from a poor family in southern India has revolutionised menstrual health for rural women in developing countries by inventing a simple machine they can use to make cheap sanitary pads.

The scenario has changed since the release of Padman. Girls and Women are happy to see celebrities talking about pads openly in an effort to break the taboo.

The family movie, no doubt has been successful in delivering the message. Taboo is slowly turning into acceptable norm.

When Youth icons are involved in bringing about a revolutionary change, the day is not very far.

A change for the better is in the process.

As the protagonist of Padman says,”Woman strong, mother strong, sister strong, then country strong!:)
