Have you ever noticed,while remembering GOD, your head automatically raises, you stare into the sky and close your eyes as if HE is up there, listening and witnessing everything….
When I was a child, I too believed that GOD lives in the sky in an invisible huge form and from there, takes care of his children on Earth. Well back then, I didn’t have a slightest idea that his all children are not ‘equal’. Although he gave us all, the equal liberty of praying but only man was privileged to enter many of his earthly residences.
Now that I saw it myself, couldn’t help but share it with you people. Remember, I am not judging anyone here but in the end, please tell me, how justified is it?
Recently visited a place nearby. It’s a temple which boasts of making you sin-free but offer is available only for Males. Yo man! Do whatever wrong you feel like, for you have a place to clean your linen in the end! But wait, did I say that the same temple bars females from entering its premises!
Now that’s ironical. This is the land where a woman astronaut like ‘Kalpana Chawla‘ was born who dared to enter ‘space’ (Supposedly the God’s abode) and see, on this very land, females are denied such a very basic thing, even today. Imagine the rocket is launched and as the astronauts are about to enter the space, and suddenly a tagline appears ‘Women are not allowed to enter the space‘.
Its more funny than sad. I don’t think that the women are dying to meet the GOD living inside these temples but I sometimes wonder that who gave man, this power to decide how a woman is supposed to behave? I mean I never heard any one barring males from entering the temple of a Goddess!
They have secured their place there as well.
and this is what you call… a job, well done!
The line in Green says, “Entry of Women is prohibited inside the temple”
