Daughters Are The Human Capital Of India ?

Written By Sahithi Divi

Women consists of 48 % of population in India

India is still expecting it’s daughters to silence their voices to the fury of dominance. Every time a girl is quiet, she is hiding enormous amount of power that is a wasted human capital that could have reflected towards a stronger foundation including the opinions and point of views of it’s 48 % of unheard screams. The policy making and leadership must not have been dictated under the reign of unequally divided governments !

Indian women alone make 7.5 % of the whole World’s population ! World’s second largest growing economy is unable to cope up to the equality standards that must be provided or approved for a women. Technology is able to reach the corners yet unable to solve the deeply rooted problems arising from the harsh social conditions of life.

Impact measurement is a very important and ignored factor. The basic piece of awareness that we all must have is about the fundamental rights of a women. Then we can measure how many of us are using the fundamental rights for their personal benefit and country’s social and economic benefit.

Is the availability of increasing techonolgy decreasing the social intelligence of personal liberation ?

Every place has an objective cause of certain social problems pertaining over there. The solutions must be integrated after understanding each problem differently. Generalising the solutions in such a diverse and multidimensionally populated society will not solve but infact create problems like urbanization which might sediment the turn out of real empowerment to very generic.

Our acceptance to change is the foremost science behind the flashing success of women empowerment. Reflecting learnings from one time to the present to create a life which suits the common interest of any family cannot transpire above the rapidly increasing need for us to act socially. EACH OF US !

Smt M Uma Nagendramani addressing the press

Smt M Uma Nagendramani joined the noble profession of Nursing in the Medical Wing of South Central Railway in the year 1983. Starting as an auxiliary mid-wife, she rose to the rank of Chief Matron and  at present is on the strength of three decades of nursing service. She is currently serving as the Vice President for S.C.Railway employee’s sungh and National secretray at INTUC.

Shri Pranab Mukherjee, Hon’ble President of India presented the glorious Florence Nightingale Award to Smt M Umanagendramani, at the remarkable award function held at Rashtrapathi Bhavan in New Delhi on 12th May, 2015.

She not only proclaimed her efforts to her job but also inclined towards the social welfare of railway men and women. She paralled her duties with her passion and gave her whole life for an unconditional rage against discrimination and gender inequality. Fighting alongside the dominance of hierarchy and gender she enlarged her vision to impact bottom line sub urban population directly and indirectly influenced by the railway. She brought healthcare, micro management and welfare closer to beneficiaries and remained the first person to launch several gender inequality and anti sexual voilatory campaigns in early 1980’s. The society stumbled upon to see a women actively fighting against discrimination happening at HIV AIDS patients but she rose to be a leaning shoulder to the suffering. She has travelled more than 20 countries advocating for the human rights of labour union.

Unparalled achievements

My association with her dates back to more than a decade, she is my high school classmate’s mother. Hosted me for combined study sessions and ended up having conversations about ground realities of people’s struggle in every layer of society. After more than 10 years we again met ! This time the conversation was more intimidating and it all began to resonate with my soul purpose. If conspiring is true, I have expirienced it through meeting and discovering the same her but who believes in me that I shall deliver my little role in a larger way.

“I am honoured to find her again for a bigger purpose and learning ” – TO FIGHT AGAINST GENDER INEQUALITY.

Why Is India Held Back ?

Gender Equality is an insulated topic admist the false moral regulations. Indian constitution provides equal rights to men and women whereas the differences are unmeasurable. The economic health of our country is divided between men, women and neutral genders. Even in today’s context, the conditional differences are wiping out the fundamental rights of the person by blocking it with gender stereotyping breaking out their original potential to generate financial independence through employement or self employed sources.

BUT “

Whether it be a family, school, government or any institution; the efficiency of functionality will be deeply effected due to the discriminative pullbacks consisting of gender bias. Business solutions cannot free the mental stigma that has been induced by generations worth of embedded preachings which classify roles and deliverables based on gender. Limitations created by the common belief backed by majority is a comfirmed as a backlog for a healthy ecosystem. Talking about India’s diversity of resources where are we in providing those resources to our women equally ?


Here isthe thing, poviding resources does not mean a special status. It means not occupying someone else’s freedom of availing their fundamental right to health, education, employement, marital implications, sexual descisions, childbirth and many pre formed templates into which objective genders are categorised into.

The change has to begin from within us, to be able to believe the statistics which say that India can add upto $770 billion—more than 18%—to its GDP by 2025, simply by giving equal opportunities to women, according to an April 23 report by the McKinsey Global Institute.

Do You Have A Role In Equalizing Economy ?

Written by Sahithi Divi ( Intro)

While the end beneficiary of gender inequality could be either of the gender’s situationally; although women are the most fabricated in stigma. The whole other perspective of looking at gender inequality is analysing the economical areas of the country which are depleting due to ground level stereotyping. The few major economic drivers of our country are the following:

  • AgriculturE
  • Policy Making
  • Business ownership
  • Homemakers
  • RURAL ECONOMIC DRIVERS
  • Sports
  • Corporate 
  • Cultural
  • Research and Development
  • Foundational skill building

Independent of the sector, gender has crept into the root cause of driving imbalance. Our country is a mega diverse economy where gender is percieved in numerous ways. Gender inequality can cause a slump in GDP ? Women equal participation ? Categorising house hold ? Placing the priorities under social timelines is a challenging descision making scenario. If you are wondering that gender equality is not your area of action; probably we need to restructure every field and resource for equal distribution to gauge the power of balanced sex ratios.

I aim to explain the undervalued strength which lies in gender inequality that is contemplating on toxic levels with the existing opportunities. I hope this article does reflect that your role does exist in playing the gender equalizer.

Irreversible Changes In A Women’s Lifecycle – How it affects the country’s performance

Written by Sahithi Divi

Why is India on the 132 nd position out of 187 countries on gender inequality index? Women showed manifesting participation in every field, still what makes Gender Equality a prime goal for an inclusive development of the world. If half our country’s population is women then imagine what would happen if half of us are unable to unleash our fundamental potential and are held back ? Gender is an unimportant economic plague without it’s equality.


The International Monetary Fund finds that India’s GDP will increase by 27 percent if women equally played a role in economy . There are some serious issues dangerously affecting the developing economies  and gender is the major cause for some of these following irreversible changes enforced by gender bias on women.

BIRTH — Female foeticide is irreversible. It results in the decline of sex ratio of the country, causing societal imbalance. Social discrimination begins with sex determination.

PRIMARY EDUCATION: Government provides free education to all, making education a fundamental right for children. But early school drop outs are dominantly gender bias inflicted victims. If any difficulty arises in the family, education will sail apart from HER in the first place.

EMPLOYMENT: Employement is a social luxury for majority of women in India. This phase of life needs courage, whereas working women can be easily objectivised by stereotypical gender policing. Literacy rate of Indian women is 67% but the turn out at work place of women is inconsiderably low, hampering the GDP drastically.

WORK ENVIRONMENT: Does not get any easier here !! Safe working atmosphere, commuting challenges against the time of the day, women centric generalised expectations and traditional beliefs contrasting the work efficiency or performance remain the first hand hassles for many ( infact most ) working Indian women.

MARRIAGE: Society/ Family play the dominant role in marriage choices, than the person actually getting married. Changing that person’s life in a day for the rest of their life. Marriage is created into generational upliftment of families and not individuals. How will more and more women be able to contribute to the country if they are held back in imaginary beliefs and regulations ?

MOTHERHOOD : Sadly, even motherhood does not come as a personal choice to many women while ignoring the health and financial implications induced onto them. Domestic voilence, gender dominance, rape and many other reasons can cause motherhood, which can never be taken back or changed from that women.

Gender Inequality is irreversible

UNPAID LIFESKILL: Under-utilised and unpaid skill delivered by women in domestic roles is highly under valued. Revisit the unmeasured power of homemakers and direct them for delivering a skill that can trigger the country’s outbound potential. Our homes are carrying the most value watsed power.

Gender Equality is an emergency not an emerging need.  Everyday that we don’t take action, millions of women are facing the cruel effects of gender inequality.
