Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow || International Women’s Day 2022

Since 2011, the International Women’s Day is observed every year on March 8 to celebrate women’s rights and their social, economic, cultural and political achievements in various spheres. The day also symbolises a focal point in the women’s rights movement, attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, violence and abuse against women, and also action for accelerating gender parity. As the United Nations quoted “This International Women’s Day, let’s claim Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.

This year our students, and Team Members have shared their messages on this day.

#Breakthebias.
Forget all the major things happening around the world and question yourself what are you contributing to it?
By breaking the stereotypes of gender norms and roles, are we able to look at woman’s gender from the broader stance of her being a being first?


If we just start looking at gender from a being perspective. This debate of biasness, empowerment would take a backseat and then we will be moving towards a just society beyond compartmentalisation.


We’ll be able to look at being’s values, virtues, capabilities, hard work beyond any lens of gender identity.


It doesn’t matter to what gender you belong to, trans/woman/man, all have equal responsibility to empower women they’re surrounded with.


It has to start at home, build it to the nation, make it worldwide.
Woman- refers to every individual who identifies herself as being a woman.

WOMEN. This is our identity which makes us strong.  Like we study many subjects in upsc , we also manage every subject in our lives . Like a plant, since we are born , we grow with so many different branches of emotions , like history we grow up listening to real empowered women and we ourselves want to become that one , like geography and nature , we beautifully embrace our all biological clocks that come with so many emotional and physical challenges . When we become a woman from a girl ,like fearless leaders we want a better growing world with an open mind just like our constitution, ethics.  UPSC journey is not only about subjects or  , we can create a more beautiful world by standing all together not just for a gender but for all just like our selfless mothers, wives , daughters , sisters and many more . For this we need to work hard with a balance just like UPSC teaches us . So to all my fellow aspirants , keep going , just sail through all hardship today , a clear shining sky is waiting tomorrow. 
Take care . Happy women’s day.

So when the storm comes, instead of fighting the waves, ride them. Ride and awake that undaunting spirit in your heart to fight all the destructive energies which you’ve created in your mind. This negative energy is barely of perishable nature at your mental level. This is not in your heart. This must decay. The pious energy within you shall always be stronger to win in the end. This soulful energy has a permanent nature. This must strengthen. Also, there’s glory in actions. Give your best performance today.
Live that happy woman in your everyday life!

Healing the society from sharp moral rupture…..
She extrapolated a way better picture!
Marginalized from mainstream,no right to vote…..
She turned herself into the right antidote!
They presumed their brilliance she never could tackle……
They’ve been warming up and she’s at the pinnacle!
Submitting to customs was a cliched repeat……
She rose from the ashes defying defeat!
And guiding mankind from graphite to ink…..
She plays the character that makes men think!!!

The dreams of achieving big,
The belief of doing great,
Your way of scaling heights,
The society has become more proud of you!
The sacrifices you have made,
The courage you have shown,
The achievements you did despite all odds,
The world has become more Harmonious because of you!
The delight in your eyes,
The chantness of joy in the voice,
The love and faith you have manifested,
The Earth has become more lively because of you!

Woman being a single word itself is a sum of many words, be it patience, selfless love and care or immense strength. I totally agree with the saying that women are just like those tea bags , one can not realize its strength and potential unless it is poured in hot water. And this has been time and again proved when women were given this hot water like opportunities. So this women’s day i wish  a very happy women’s day to all those women who come forward to fulfill their dreams, who stand against all odds of life, and who dare to raise their voice for their dignity and self respect.

A sustainable future for the whole world is often looked at as a priority but one important aspect of it is often overlooked and that is ‘equal opportunity for women’. Since many years, owing to the persistent attitude of women in fighting for their place, rights and protection ,has been changing the deeply rooted flawed beliefs of society. It is the responsibility of every individual, nation, and organisation to help bring equality to each and every woman. And to achieve this , apart from institutional frameworks , there is a need for people and a woman herself to recognise and celebrate each and every milestone ,however big or small,  achieved. The world needs women heroes but more importantly, the world needs to celebrate small heroic moves of every woman. This women’s day , lets celebrate the countless heroic moves of every woman in making a place for herself in this world.

Women’s day line- Role of women has been of immense significance since time immemorial, be it domestic domain or work life, everywhere women have a significant roles to play and the COVID situation has impactfully highlighted the hard work and efforts put in by women counterparts in household work and the work-life balance along with deligently raising children.   we should all work together towards the path of gender equality, leading into the world; in lines of Rabindranath Tagore ” Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free and where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic wall” ( here in reference to women fragmentation and domestic walls pertains to old customs beliefs and practices which held back women from progressing and having equal fair chance in various aspects of life).

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day.
An angel came by and asked, “Why spend so much time on her?”
The Lord answered, “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?
She must function in all kinds of situations.
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time.
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
She must do all this with only two hands.
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.”
The angel was impressed, “Just two hands…impossible!
And this is the standard model?” Koi
The angel came closer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord.”
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.”
“Can she think?” The angel asked.
The Lord answered, “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”
The angel touched her cheeks.
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”
“She is not leaking…it is a tear” the Lord corrected the angel.
“What’s it for?” Asked the angel.
The Lord said, “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is indeed marvellous!”
Lord said, “Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying.
Cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.
Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life.”
The angel asked: “So she is a perfect being?”
The Lord replied, “No. She has just one drawback…she often forgets what she is worth.”

*HAPPY* *WOMEN’S* *DAY*
