(49)How can the Imbalance of Power Between The Genders Be Bridged?

Standard

Much of the problem of inequality between Men and Women and atrocities on females is due to the  Difference in Physical Strength and Aggressive tendency between them.Some of the imbalance can be corrected by right upbringing,   that is, by education, instilling self confidence as well as self esteem in Women, and training girls in Martial Arts; and boys’ pugnaciousness can be toned down by teaching boys to respect women. Still, due to the basic biological disparity of physical strength between the sexes, and the sexual vulnerability of women, not all women can cope with the power of men, at least physically. Hence, it is easier and more necessary to curb Male Aggressiveness than to make Women strong enough to defend themselves against rough and ruthless men.

In my opinion, Women are Born violable because of their lesser muscular strength and the Open and Admissive or Receptive structure of their private organs. Of course, they can, and many do, become fairly strong and formidable as they grow up, some women growing to become stronger than some men, with the right training, but that takes time. Till then, the fact remains that Women, or at least, young girls need Protection!

Men on the other hand, are Born sexually Inviolable. Hence it is logical that Their aggressiveness should be controlled and properly directed, so as not to be allowed to grow beyond acceptable limits, from their childhood, so that they do not become delinquent and criminals, and a menace to common and especially the weaker sections of society like young girls and children, rather than trying to make Girls forceful enough to cope with violently inclined men, by hormonal administration and heavy exercise to bring them on par with men physically, for it is difficult to change the bodily structure, muscular and hormonal make-up of women to match that of the naturally Testosterone–influenced males. (Even if it is possible in the case of some girls/ladies, it is not desirable as it may have the harmful effect of complicating the female constitution and reproductive capacity).

Thus, Humanity’s hope lies in the fact that No man is born a criminal, and Every male is innocent as a child, but Becomes antisocial because of the influence of negative but corrigible environmental factors like –                                                                                                          (1) Bad company ;                                                                                                             (2) increasing exposure of youngsters to unhealthy presentation of Sex through Uncensored Media, like Blue Films and Pornographic Literature and pictures;                                                                                                                          (3)lack of supervision or control, and improper Upbringing of boys/men, as well as the disparaging attitude towards females, by Parents,Police, Law and Govt.; and,                                                                                                                               (4)lack of privacy between the elders and youngsters among the poor people, such as Slumdwellers.                                                                                                         (5) Competition and stress of the present times.

Therefore, what is needed is Timely correction and proper upbringing by parents or guardians and teachers, right from the childhood and the formative years of males, Over and above strict Laws, to curb Juvenile Delinquency and growth of Criminal tendencies in Men by instilling sensitivity towards, and respect for women and their rights as equally worthy human beings, to reduce their pugnaciousness and tendency to commit Crimes against Women, as also in General!

(48)Tapping The Brain Potential through Medical/Prosthetic and Electronic Research  to rehabilitate Physically Challenged Persons.

Standard

‘It Is Better To Light A Candle Than To Curse The Darkness’.

Thus goes the popular saying, which means that it is Better to Carry Out A Task with Humble Efforts Than To Give Up The Enterprise Altogether For Want Of Optimum Provisions For Perfect Output.

This Saying is Aptly Applicable in the Rehabilitation of the Handicapped or rather, Physically Challenged Persons, for whom there is Immense Scope of Cure or At Least Significant Improvement for becoming self sufficient by Tapping the Vast Potential of the Human Brain, and the Central Sensomotor Nervous System through the latest advances in Medico- Surgical and Electronic Research.

There are many examples of such brilliant Neuro-Surgical Advances, but one   of the best advances made so far, read by me, was the recent replacement of    the original amputated arms of some men by ‘BIONIC’ , Mind controlled Prosthetic arms, and in another case, an arm fixed by attaching an artery, thigh muscle and nerve supply to the new limb, by surgeons  In Vienna, Austria, U.S. And UK.  I hope this prosthesis can be developed to help Para/Quadruplegics and Cerebral Palsy patients to recover some degree of mobility, and be released from their depressing dependence on others.

The Christian Medical College Hospital at Vellore, Tamilnad, India(my Alma Mater), too, has a Centre at ‘Karigiri’,near Vellore, for Rehabilitative Surgery. The Centre is doing rehabilitative surgery on Leprosy patients, who had lost their limbs, or function thereof, because of the sensory deficit associated with Leprosy. Now, it might have extended its scope to other handicapped persons also.

Research is also being done in many countries to restore neurological functions of paralysed  muscles of the limbs and face, by use of embryological tissue, as well as Cochlear implants to bestow or restore hearing ability to persons with Hearing impairment and also the simultaneous ability to speak    if the speech impairment is due to hearing deficit. This will, however, take much time and clinical trials in laboratory animals and human subjects to materialise.

In the meanwhile, synthetic aids for hearing and communication are also being developed for the Deaf-Mute and Mute-blind persons, like a ‘Digital Glove’ fixed with Sensors for the five fingers, with a palm-sized Controller, devised recently by  a Pune M.Tech. student, Abhijit Kathwate, which facilitates their ability to translate hand gestures. Into words on an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) Screen, and also to receive spoken messages, and other sounds like the horns Of vehicles on roads amidst traffic.

Likewise, it is learnt that research work is also on at Coimbatore, India,            to produce an artificial or Electronically Powered Eye which can accord at least 50% ‘visual ability’  to blind people by fitting a light sensitive receptor Silicon implant having electronic fibres to connect the implant to the Optic Nerve, in place of the damaged retina, due to diseases like Retinitis Pigmentosa  and Macular Degeneration, with a video camera fixed to a spectacle frame, mounted on both sides of the face ! This innovation has been named             ‘BIONIC Electronically powered EYE PPT (with Power Point Template).                   This new Invention was first done in the U.S., but now, variations of it are being brought out by other countries too, like Australia, which has named its product  Argus II System Bionic Eye. The Bionic Eye helps even Completely blind people to regain their sight, Except those who have lost their eyesight due to Glaucoma, and damage/disease of the Optic nerve, or those who are blind from birth due to developmental anomaly or congenital absence of                    the Optic nerve.

Yet, I am hopeful that for these unfortunates too, an Electronic invention will emerge in course of Time, which can replace the Optic nerve too by electronic fibres stretching from the Silicon Retinal Implant directly upto the Occipital Lobe, which is the main Centre for Sight, considering that we see familiar people or objects in our dreams too, even when we are asleep, and that the Receptor organ – the Eyeball, as well as the Optic fibres that are the Pathway for Light and Vision, are closed!

In short, as long as the Brain, which is the Head or Governor of the State –       of the Body and the Central ‘Powerhouse’ of our Sensomotor system, is sound and intact, there is no limit to the help it can provide to recover any lost faculty of the rest of the Body – our Biological Corporation !

It will be Wonderful if all this really comes to happen in coming future,            like God’s Gift! It will truly verify the Sanskrit Shloka,                                                  “मुकम् करोति वाचालम्, पंगुम् लंघयते गिरिम्”, meaning that with the help of God’s Grace,                                                                          “The Mute can Speak, and the Lame Cross Mountains “!

(47)Who Stood(Erect)First,In Evolution Process?Man/Woman?

Standard

It has long been believed by Mankind that it was the Man who was GOD’s FIRST Creation, who trod the Earth first, as the Bible says, and the woman Eve was a later and secondary creation, made from the Man Adam’s Rib, to give him company.

The Latest Scientific Research, however, has shown that contrary to the traditional belief of practically all religions that the first Human was a Male, and He led Mankind to stand on its feet, It Was The Woman, ‘Mother of Man’ (MOM), or rather the Female ‘Homo Erectus’, the evolutionary stage just before the full fledged Human, namely, ‘Homo Sapiens’, who was the First to acquire the ability to stand erect on the hind legs First, to enable her to carry her Children in Her Arms.
For, it is proved by Evolutionary Science that “The First Human Genotype was Female, namely, chromosomal XX. Whereas, the ‘Y’ chromosome of Males is supposed to be one of original X chromosomes, with a ‘broken leg’, due to Genetic Mutation!
