Empowerment of Women in India

When I switched on the TV today, I happened to stop at a channel which telecasted a documentary on women empowerment in India. The presentation was centered around in showcasing that women in India do not enjoy equal status as men. But I felt the whole of what they said, pointless and baseless. It is foolishness to talk still about empowerment of women in India because Indian women enjoy all the rights and privileges which isn't seen still in America or the foreign countries. In India, if we have seen the hair of our great-grannies shoven; we have also seen Indira Gandhi becoming the prime minister of India, Pratibha Patil becoming the president of India and Jayalalitha becoming the chief minister of Tamil Nadu for the third time now, a privilege which the foreign women may not enjoy even after maybe 10-20 years too. Here it is not about women not enjoying their rights and status; its all about the self-chosen 'fate' or I may rather put it as 'U' yourself need to design your destiny and future.

What not? Even our own Ash's statue has now reached Tussauds wax museum.
