Make your Girls Feel Independent on this Independence Day

On the eve of Independence Day, a certain thought popped up in my mind. Indian women, are they really independent? As the dictionary says, the literal meaning of the word ‘independence’ is self-sufficiency, self-reliance, autonomy, freedom, liberty etc. Women folks, can they walk safe down the street at night without fear of being shouted at, followed, grabbed, or worse. I think the answer is ‘no’.

A girl do walk on her own at night, but not without constantly looking over her shoulder, and sometimes even pretending to be on the phone with her father or brother whenever she spot a group of guys walking near her.

The clothes the girls wear depend on the company they are with, and which transport they are going to use, So a girl doesn’t feel safe at night, she doesn’t even have the least freedom of wearing the clothes of her choice. Is it only enough being a constitutionally independent country? Are we living with complete freedom, are we really liberated? These are the few questions we have to ponder upon.

It’s been years since we are free from the clutches of British rule in India. Today standing here after years, do our girls feel the freedom, freedom from the atrocities against them?

Let us remember our very own Swami Vivekananda, and say, ‘There is no chance of welfare, unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on one wing.’

But in our country violence against girls is increasing day by day. Rape, female feticide, acid attacks, domestic violence, dowry deaths, honour killings, forced abortion, human trafficking, sexual violence, and the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, the percentages of these crimes are increasing every year and women cannot fight to keep their selves as they are physically less stronger than men. But this is the 21st century; a world of digital technology and our mobile phones are one of the very useful creations till date. Nowadays the people use lots of apps on their phone, there is one very useful app for the girls safety called MyKIddyTracker App.

MyKiddyTracker app helps to track anyone in real time. It’s very useful for girls if they caught themselves in any trouble.

Girls, with this amazing app you can simply message your loved ones easily and ask them for help as quickly as they can. You can be tracked from anywhere, the thing which you have to do is to open the application and run the application in background and you can be simply tracked and rescued by your people. There are other apps also available, but this is the best app for tracking in real time. So, girls please download this app on your phone and feel free, safe and independent on this Independent Day. You should be raised to be an independent woman and not the victim of anything. In the words of Nelson Mandela, ‘Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.’
