Man and woman have different roles to play but in modern time’s man and woman both are working to fend for their families and the result is children being left on their own. This has become a debatable issue. The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world. It is very true that mothers play an important role in the growth and development of the future generation. My plea is that an educated and a working woman will have a more positive impact on the child and hence is more capable of moulding the destiny of the future generation. Now when the women are moving shoulder to shoulder with men and moving ahead in life, debating on this is like emotionally blackmailing and making them weak. It is also like accusing them that they are shirking from their responsibility of bringing up their children well. It is also like making them feel small that they are running away from their duty of a home-maker and are only bothered about their position and moving forward in their professional life. All these accusations are false. Its like keeping a double fare. One time you talk about the necessity of a woman to actively participate in the country's economic growth and then when she steps out you shout hoarse that she is not balancing her home and office with the result that children are running astray. I would like to say why point a finger at her alone. Why make her solely responsible for all the wrong that might take place at home? Why is the father not targeted? It is high time both the parents shoulder equal responsibility for both keeping house and rearing children. When a man wants his daughter to study, work and make a name for herself then why should he restrict his wife from doing the same. Next, I would like to say that it is not necessary that the women who stay at home prove to be perfect or better mothers. Rather the children of mothers who stay at home are more pampered where as working mothers children are more disciplined. I think it is not right to constrain and limit women to house-keeping and child-rearing and waste the abundant potential which is within them. This talent and energy should rather be channelised and used productivity for the individuals plus the country's progress.
