Let ‘Her’ be our Resolution this year
We all awaited for the moment when we will bid adieu to 2014 and welcome the new year. The day came and guilty as charged, we partied our hearts out or maybe curled up in the blanket on New Year's eve and today is the first page of that 2015 diary.

Usually, a year starts with people making resolutions for the next 365 days, although it depends whether you share them with your friends or not, we all make goals in our heads. Let’s make one together- Respect Her.
As far as I remember, She is not getting respected as she should. She has been harmed, violated, mistreated, abused, cat-called, teased, made fun of, beaten, pushed down, killed and worse, left alone by us. Sometimes by males and sometimes even by female counterparts; she has felt disrespected.
No, am not talking about Rapes in particular; there has been enough written, said and protested on that matter and that too by people who are good with words, intentions and presentations. What I am trying to convey is the genuine feeling of respect that you give to your mother, sister, girlfriend or wife.
We were created as equals, of what I gather from religious books. Believe it or not, she had greater responsibilities as she had to make do with her duties towards herself and her family along with nurturing, caring and bringing another soul into this world. In other words, she is the ‘creator’, per se.
So, where did we lose that respect that am rambling about? I sincerely hope that we all will find an answer to that, soon; but as I have assumed, we lost it the moment we stopped teaching our younger ones to respect her.
We looked over the fact that our younger ones will one day grow up and have a personality of their own and it is in our hands to give them shape and push in the right direction. We constantly feed them the importance of studies, money, status and respect for elders. But, we forgot to mention – you should treat Her as equal and respect Her, no matter what.
From the past years, I’ve seen numerous social experiments on the Internet, huge number of people gathering for this cause and protesting, profound stupid statements by people sitting on higher positions of decision making and still I see no solution, do you?
We blame it on modern lifestyle, short clothes, forward attitude, movies, music, education, society and what not; but we overlook the question as to who is responsible for all this. It’s the individual who was little once and was dependent on us to make him understand the importance of things that really matter. We may have missed some bullet points that we should’ve told them, I guess.
I am in no way trying to teach you on how you should bring up your kid or talk to your sibling. I am just trying to emphasize on a Fact. For example, if I know that my younger brother should be more open to sports, I’ll try and give him a push into that direction, will let him know its importance and how he can be a better person or have a better career prospect in the same.
This blog post, can’t be in any way a milestone solution to this massive issue, I know. Still, it would be a good start if we decide and start to give Her what she deserves – RESPECT.
Hope you have a blessed new year.
