How can Unwed mothers dispose of Their Babies in a Safe and Humane Way?

Standard

Many Women who become Unwed Mothers due to rape or being deserted by the lovers, and some Married Women bearing girl babies are forced by the puritanical Indian Society to abandon their children because of social pressures. Some women, due to not getting timely recourse to abortion, or finding any proper place to leave their babies, leave them in desperation much against their heart and conscience, on the roadside in garbage bins, or in trains. Some even go to the extent of killing their infants and themselves by barbaric methods to escape social condemnation.

Some unmarried expectant mothers have to put their own life at risk by going to quacks or untrained Midwives for terminating their pregnancy, which accounts for a significant number of morbidly and mortality
among women conceiving out of wedlock.

This problem can be solved to some extent by employing Social Welfare workers in Maternity Hospitals and Clinics to guide and help women who cannot keep and care for their children to either guide them to Authorised Clinics or hospitals to undergo timely Induced Abortion, or if it is too late for that, to help them give them to hand over their children to legally recognised Adoption centres. That way, they can pass on their babies into safe and responsible hands, instead of leaving them to die a heart-wrenching death!

WHEN WILL INDIANS LEARN TO VALUE THE DIGNITY OF LABOUR? (68)

Standard

Ever since the BJP leader Narendra Modiji has become the Prime Minister of India, the pompous and envious Congress party members like Mani Shankar Aiyar and others like him have resorted to the petty tactics of jeering at him as a ‘Chaiwala’, that is, Tea Vendor. This shows that they and our country people in general, need to be taught a thing or two about the value of
the Dignity of Labour.

Without giving any more examples like Modiji, other than the former President (late) Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam who also rose to becoming the President of India, from being just a poor Daily Newspaper Delivery boy, it is enough if the supercilious Congressmen get the message on this Independence Day, that That humble ‘Chaiwala’, whom they have been taunting as such since the time of his candidature for PM in the last Elections, has risen to become the Prime Minister of India Today!

Swami Vivekanand, who is the Spiritual Guru of Modiji, has made mention
in his writings about a young school boy whom he met in America, who was working as a Daily Newspaper Delivery Boy, to earn for his education.
He was very impressed by the boy and wished that the youth of our country would also be as self reliant as that boy.

On the other hand, the Congress Yuvraj, their ‘Prime and Exclusive’ present Candidate for the Prime Minister’s post, who was the son, grandson and
Greatgrandson of Three earlier Prime Ministers of India, and ‘Born With
A Silver Spoon in his Mouth’, still needs ‘Spoon Feeding’ in Political Wisdom from Mamma!

The Problem with our people is that they are so fascinated by the British
Colonial ‘Sahibs’ that they have made getting ‘Cushy, White Collar Jobs’
their Ideal and Main Ambition in Life. Thus it has become our National Mentality to snub and scoff at people who reach up the Ladder of Success by Manual or less Sophisticated Type of Labour, like those working in Hotels
or Barbers’ saloons (who are ridiculed as ‘Hotelwala/Waiter’ or ‘Hajaam’), in Farms as farmers, or on Battle Fields, even if it is necessary for their own Livelihood and for Society and the Country, because of which those who have come up that way feel ashamed to disclose it, though they are not doing anything wrong. Ultimately, however, the latter themselves have to learn to be less sensitive and more toughminded and self- assured to ignore and discard this unwarranted Feeling of Inferiority that those better placed than them try to put in them.

The old film ‘Ramnagari ‘ starring Amol Palekar, about a Barber’s emotional struggle to come to terms with his traditional occupation of ‘Hajaam’, aptly emphasises the need to have respect for one’s Profession, however humble.
For, it takes all sorts of people to make a World.

This Snobbish ‘Gora Saab’ Mentality instilled in our people by the British Empire in India, followed by the ‘Nehru-Gandhi Empire’, has lasted right from the time of Independence from the British until Last year, except for the period from 1998 to 2004, when Atal Bihari Vajpayeeji (1998-2004) was
India’s Prime Minister, and for a very brief gap earlier during 1977-80,
under the PM ship of Morarji Desai of the Janata Party.

Therefore , If India has to solve the problem of Unemployment and Scarcity
of openings for Self Enterprise, and make its countrymen more self reliant, Indians will have to shed its highbrow attitude towards simple, unostentatious types of work, and learn to value and accord dignity to
All forms of ‘Honest Labour’!

‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisaan’! JAI HIND !

Can The New Scientific Advances in Gender Change or Genital Repair Surgery Be Used To Relieve Rape victims of Rape Stigma?Just a passing thought!(67)

Standard

This Subject of Gender Transformation Surgery may raise the curiosity of
the readers, and make them wonder what has prompted the writing of it.
As such, the Reason for thinking along this line is that the position of Rape Victims in our Society, is so pathetic that it makes women, particularly Rape Victims, ashamed of and Curse their Violable body, and wish that they had been born as men instead of Women, or change their gender at once.

It would have been good if such an operation had been possible surgically, to give not only the victims of rape, but also genital damage due to other kinds of injury, the feel of a new, inviolable body in this very life, and some women as well as men too, do opt for Gender transformation/Reassignment of their Sexual Identity nowadays through surgery for their own reasons.

One well known example in India is that of Ajay Mafatlal, a scion of the prominent Industrialist family of the Mafatlal Group, who passed away recently. He was born as a girl, ‘Aparna’, and got married too, but divorced
her husband for some mutual reasons, and underwent the Gender Trans- formation Surgery.

However, there is a doubt as to whether it is possible, in the first place,
in the case of genetically normally differentiated males and females, or only in genetically bisexual or intersex people.For in some cases, such operations have been reported to have turned out to be unsuccessful. In that case, subjecting individuals at random to this kind of operation would be like casting the persons going in for it, particularly the Rape victims who are already distressed, into a more embarrassing and agonising position, tantamount to throwing them ‘From The Frying Pan into The Fire’ !

Therefore, the Real way to improve the lot of rape victims lies in the
Improvement in Society’s attitude towards these girls or women and the Children born as a result of Rape, for the sake of Humanity, as they are totally innocent and do not deserve the condemnation and isolation to which they are subjected to, in traditional societies. BESIDES THIS, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR CARE IS THAT PSYCHOTHERAPY SHOULD ALSO BE GIVEN TO RAPE VICTIMS TO BRING THEM OUT OF THEIR
MENTAL AGONY !

Surgical Treatment by Genital Repair Surgery by way of repairing the Hymen of a Virgin, ‘Hymenorrhaphy’ in Medical terms is also advocated to restore the semblance of virginity is also advocated to prevent marital problems later on that account.

In addition, in the cases of pregnancy which is not advanced beyond 20-24 weeks, preferably before the movements start, Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP), that is, Induced Abortion SHOULD be allowed and done, without any opposition on moral or legal grounds, both for the sake of the hapless woman and her child to make her acceptance by society and her
REHABILITATION easier !

All said and done, the most important help is the Moral support by Society
to these Unfortunate, innocent victims of lust of irresponsible and perverted
Males !
