Chinmayi: We as Citizens should raise our voice

IndiaGlitz [Tuesday, January 08, 2013]

The recent brutal Delhi gang-rape has not only affected the common people but also our tinsel town celebrities. Here's the talented Chinmayi who airs her views with IndiaGlitz on women liberation.

According to Chinmayi, if one makes a list of social issues then one may find that the thing which disturbs woman the most or pose as a threat to a girl is the so-called culture and traditions which the society brings up often. Recalling the old concept of Sati where the wife had to sacrifice her own life after husband's death, Chinmayi said that even today women suffer through dowry deaths and eve-teasing.

Being in a social media, Chinmayi brings to notice that mostly a woman becomes the butt of jokes and there are several instances where in pretence of joking the woman is humiliated or disrespected. Especially in films when the woman is highlighted in such manner, Chinamayi demands that why such biased attitude when that lady (actress) also comes from a proper family background and moreover is she also a girl.

Chinmayi also pointed out that a girl in one's home is brought up with certain rules and respect whereas the same rules change when it comes to treating an outside girl. According to the singer, several culture and traditions hinders a woman's growth, but she justifies that earlier thanks to many women fighters like Queen Abbakka and Rani Laxmibai India got freed from Colonial rulers. But today the birth of a girl and even educating a girl is considered as problems. This attitude should change, remarks Chinmayi who went on to say further that she will of course stand up to get justice for woman's rights.

She stressed that each and everyone's mind-set towards girls should change and one should treat every girl as our own and give equal importance to boy and girl. Whether she is from our own family or from outside - one should give her due respect and consider the woman either as sister, mother or daughter. "Unless we raise our voice as citizens, our culture and society won't change," stated Chinmayi, who feels that people change culture and traditions according to their convenience, which in turn affects the women. And she hopes 2013 brings all that will change.
