Gandhi’s Blog!

Hmm… I was just channel browsing while my mother was preparing a concoction to settle my throat which was struggling to come to terms. Well two major discussions on were the Women’s Reservation Bill to be tabled in the parliament and second the Gandhi’s.

Before I move to the former topic, let me touch the Gandhis. Did you know that there were 200 projects named after Rajiv Gandhi?? and 450 after Nehru and other Gandhi’s??? Where is our nation heading! I am tired to see this. Even our dear ‘Madam’ Sonia has told that it was Rajivji’s dream to table the Women’s Reservation Bill. Hope it wont be tabled as Rajiv’s Women’s Bill. It may happen to garner the 3 votes that are required to pass it in the Rajya Sabha!

Tomorrow, the woman’s bill is supposedly being tabled in the parliament. Barring one woman, who I saw manage a team, I support the rest of the women to go for the 33% bill and probably fight for it. Its high time, peole see that gender differences at work, are almost a thin line and treatment at work, must be unbiased from both the genders! The problem for the bill to be passed appearently is it must be first tabled in Rajya Sabha, get 2/3rds majority and be passed without a din. To maintain the decorum, the constituion of the upper house mandates that any amendment can only be passed if there is a din! With policitical parties headed by Lalu Yadav and Mulayam, opposing the bill, I dont expect the din to go down. It was the same Mulayam who had his ‘bahu’ stand for the elections remember? He is now opposing a bill for women’s empowerment.

I am pretty much sure that the same politcial parties who have opposed this, would unite and vote, if the reservation was for a specific caste or religion, dividing the country even further! Well for tomorrow, hope this bill gets passed and India moves towards, something that puts the society at a much more thoughtful level. And well I hope it will get implemented and India will be a free and fair coutry with no discrimination of such sort! And officially, I hope for women who have moved to the top, it helps in not accusing their male counterparts of sabotaging their growth (A one off observation here!).
