INDIA OPINES …..This is regarding the above article published regarding our H R Minister Smriti Irani ..
Congress leader calls Smriti Irani as , ‘ poncha lagane waali ‘…
What is the meaning of this ? Whoever is good is free to answer this question . The meaning of this is a sweeper ….Who sweeps and swabs !!! Who has understood the real meaning of this ! I don’t think whoever passed these remarks does not know the meaning of this .
Lets come to the point raised by one Mr. Gurudas Kamat …Sir ,do you know the exact meaning of this ? All of us including myself a senior citizen of India does that job , if a maid does not turn up .That does not mean I am called a sweeper . Is there anybody however rich he/she may be does not to do this job , if a maid is absent ? Is this not the case with your family Mr.KAMAT ?…You should think twice before passing such indecent remarks about a lady .
Is this the respect you male people have for your wife , mother and sister ? Our elders used to say your sanskar lies in your words . Are you not a sanskari person brought up by elders ? What sanskar do you give to your own children if you have any ? What respect do you have in the society ? Is this the ego in you making you pass remarks like this ? May be you are jealous ! One day if a maid servant doesn’t turn up in your house,your wife is also a poncha laghane wali …
Is this the respect we as women command in the society ? If at all Women Empowerment groups of Mumbai and India join hands asking for justification,then these male egoists will shut their mouths. The Freedom of Speech which is there in our Constitution , gives us freedom to speak for our rights and move forward in the society .I request its high time you realize your mistake and apologise to the person concerned . Women are no less than men .
There are so many other major issues you people have to think about instead of wasting your time in remarking like this .
