Men should empower women, says Governor

3-day meet on 'Woman in Indian Culture Through The Ages' begins

Governor Vajubhai R Vala, on Thursday, appealed to men to encourage and support women to empower them.

Delivering his presidential address during the opening of the three-day 10th national conference on ‘Woman in Indian culture through the ages,’ organised jointly by Akhila Bharatheeya Ithihasa Sankalana Yojana (ABISY), New Delhi, Centenary Celebration Committee of the University of Mysore and Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR), New Delhi, in the city, the governor said, “Women nowadays have taken a lead in many fields, with 70 per cent women bagging top honours on the academic front. Most importantly, it’s women who inculcate culture among children. Be it any women, men should ensure their safety and security”.

On the role of women in politics, Vala said, there are examples of women leaders occupying top posts like president and prime minister in India, while in western countries it is more common to see women leaders occupying key positions.

Earlier, in her inaugural address, Goa Governor Mridula Sinha said, “By protecting the dignity of women, one shall uphold the dignity of the country.”

Sinha said, the three-day meet should discuss the relevance of nature, culture and decency as they are inter-connected with each other. While nature remains intact after being created, the Indian culture is largely dependent on the nature.

Describing motherhood as god’s gift to womenfolk, Sinha regretted that new-age women were avoiding motherhood, that was once protected and preserved, equally contributing to the welfare of the society.

Sarakaryavah of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS) Suresh Joshi said, family system was the root of the country, that should be protected by ensuring education, health and safety of womenfolk.

Delineating on the need to set right the history of the country, Joshi said, the samiti has taken up many works to introduce the core strength of the country to the people.

“While Aryans were indigenous people of India, Britishers falsely propagated that they came from outside. The truth was established after researching deep into the issue. The origin of Sindhu-Saraswati River has been traced”, added Joshi.
