This is the trend now. Feminism is the buzzword of the century. There have been lots of changes and developments on this front. Even terms like "man-days", "man-hours", "mankind" have been ridiculed, because they sound gender-discriminative it seems. It's "person-days", "person-hours" and "humankind". Gone are the days of using "he" as the default subject in stories and professional writings. It's "she" everywhere.
So, what does this all mean?
Have women got their share of what they deserve? People make fun of feminism and ask "who is suppressing them?" and "who is holding them back from growing?" That is just an urban - middle class view that comes out of the frustration of running behind a girl like mad and getting deceived by her (:-)) or based on the observations made within their own family and friends' families. Women are yet to get the real freedom. Even today there are millions of women, who get beaten up by their drunkard husbands for no reasons (the only possible reason could be that his brain doesn't work when he is drunk)...
Somehow in the beginning of the game itself, physically strong and mentally cunning men have written the rules of the game in their favor, which is still keeping them dependent on one or the other man through out her life. Today, every political party wants reservation for women, but nobody is able to implement it. It won't happen as long as there are men heading the parties and parliament. "Is reservation right or wrong?" is another interesting topic, which can be discussed for another century. Let's not get into that.
I remember a few months back Sobia stood up and asked why there are no girls crowned as SHoW (Super Heroine of the Week) in the group. Sobia! I am sure you should be happy now... no reservations... this is purely based on merit.
To introduce Vidhya, the SHoW...
I am sure most of you would know her.
Anyways, Shree Vidhya was with BC during 2003's and she was one of the popular people like any other Admin team member. She is married to an ex BCian (which we discussed in detail when Rabijit was the SHoW) for the past 6 months or so and both of them are working together in IBM now. During her BC days, we have always seen her as a perfectionist who tries to do everything that is assigned to her in the best possible fashion. She is a graduate in psychology (if I am not wrong) and HR executive by profession. Both psychology and HR go hand-in-hand. In fact, if you can read the fellow creature's mind, you can shine in any field, be it marketing, HR, IT, spirituality, medicine... anything!
Good SHoW Vidhya! Congratulations again on behalf of the group for being awarded in IBM. Keep it up!!!
BTW - Thanks Rabijit for bringing it to the limelight!!!
