'Stop atrocities on women in neighbourhood'

In order to put an end to the heinous crimes against women, every man should take a pledge to stop the atrocities on women, in their respective localities, may it be homes or colleges, said ABVP State President B V Vasanth Kumar. He was speaking at ‘Vivekothsava - 2014,’ organised by Akhila Bharatha Vidyarthi Parishat, in Mangalore on Tuesday.

Swami Vivekananda stressed that in order to earn respect to the nation, prominence should be given to women’s empowerment. Regretting the Deralakatte incident, he claimed that unfortunate incidents of these kind happen because women are treated as a device of materialistic pleasure, Vasanth said.

Another cause for concern is that some sects are portraying men as the enemies of women, thereby creating turmoil within the system, which adds to the problem, he added.

Vasanth further said that problems of corruption and lack of internal security mar the nation, thanks to the corrupt politicians. Even as Bangladesh intruders are engaged in illegal activities, including in Mangalore and Udupi, the governance has turned its blind eye towards the issue.

Chief Guest of the programme, Jagathika Buntara Okkoota President Ajith Kumar Rai Maladi said that Swami Vivekananda is the symbol of national pride.

When India was under slavery, he created a revolution by giving a wake up call to Indian youth. He sacrificed all comforts for the sake for gaining a respectful status to India, Maladi said and called upon the youth to devote some of their time to the national development.

Karavali Group of Institutions President Ganesh Rao, who presided over the function, said that one can respect the nation only when he has self-respect. One should exercise their franchise before criticising the system, he added.

Ganapathi College lecturer Balakrishna, ABVP State Secretary Ramesh K and ABVP City Secretary Chetan L were also present.
