Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan calls women 'good managers'
12 August, 2018
Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Sunday described women as
"good managers" despite having no management degree and stressed
that they have the strength to perform both within and outside their
homes. The Speaker further emphasised that for the development of
nation, it was important that women should be empowered and they
should realise their strength. "Kirron ji (the Chandigarh MP) has
rightly said when a woman comes out of her home for work, she has to
work double. Men though say they are also doing the same way, I do
not feel a man will say with pride that he also works at home,"
Mahajan said while addressing a women workers' summit organised by
Bharat Vikas Parishad here today.
"I say you (women) are a very good manager without giving any
examination of management. You do not realize you are a good
manager, because we ourselves say we do nothing. Being housewife
means, I am nothing. You first get this thought out of your mind,
because you do a lot," said Mahajan. She praised women for handling
their whole families after marriage. "You join a new family after
leaving your own and do not only you blend with them but also
consider every family member your own. You also adopt their
culture.. the way you adopt the new family it looks like you have
been doing it for several years.
"The way you adopt the (new) family... take care of each member of
the family and try to do according to the likes of each family
member, is full management and you do it and you do not make anybody
realise that you are doing it," she said. She also cited an example
of a Member of Parliament who had once told her that he managed to
complete his studies because of the support of his wife.
"It does not mean that men do not recognise women contribution, but
the sensitivity is also essential," she said. Recalling Swami
Vivekananda's observation that a bird needs to have both its wings
strong to fly, she said: "If one wing of a bird is strong and other
is not, it cannot fly.." Lok Sabha Speaker said, "Women is also part
of the society and could also give her opinion (on various matters).
Unless the mother of a house is intelligent, the family could not
Addressing the gathering, Mahajan underscored the need for women
equipping themselves with the knowledge to guide their children in
selecting the right career. "A mother knows what her child eats and
whenever he or she is hungry, the child goes to her mother. I will
consider a woman a successful mother if her son or daughter seeks
her advice for making the right career choice also," she said.
"You have the strength to perform because you have the power to
recognise what is to be done. You recognise it and perform it. You
should also have the self-confidence that yes 'I can'," said the Lok
Talking about the pilgrimages, Mahajan said a pilgrim could not
derive the real contentment if one reaches the temple or shrine
through modern means of transport like a helicopter. I do not
consider it 'darshan' of God when we use a helicopter to reach a
shrine. When we assume big posts in our lives, I feel we do not get
real 'darshan' of god. In 'VIP Darshan', we feel we saw the idol,
but it's not 'real darshan'. "Because it is necessary to go
through some hardship to reach the doors of god... I feel I do not
get blessings of pilgrims who are standing in a queue for hours for
their turns whenever I am provided VIP facility to undertake the
pilgrimage," she said.
