"The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function."
--Dr. Albert A. Bartlett, Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of Colorado
From time immemorial, the human male has exuded raw power and supremacy over the female. The animal kingdom, too, is no exception to this power equation. This is probably one of natures worst follies, which the planet has lived to regret!
In a remote town in Uttar Pradesh, a man allegedly threw his six year old daughter in a river with a motive to kill; the little girl was battling a kidney ailment for 3 years. The father of six children was burdened with medical expenses and many mouths to feed. He thought it best to end his problem by drowning the expensive child. The situation would have been diametrically opposite if the poverty stricken man had just planned his family well.
The Men Problem .
Statistics show that every sixty seconds an expectant mother breathes her last during child-birth. What happens to the children she leaves behind? And who do we blame for the plight of the women and the children?
In most homes, men have the last word. Women are forced to toe the line, as if in tacit agreement, fearing reprobation. Decisions about sexual activity, frequency of sex, contraception, and family planning are almost always a male prerogative. So much so, that many HIV infected women have only their partners to blame for the spread of infection.
On the one hand we glorify our women, and on the other we show scant disregard for their health and well being. Respect for women, their health and status is clearly absent, especially in families that are below the poverty line.
