Ok! Lets Have A #wetwo Movement Now
“I am an Indian and all Indians are my brothers and sisters”. So categorically, I still remember my school pledge which, devoid of any day, our Sister principal made us take in those mandatory morning assemblies. Alas but! Seems we never adhered to it. We never adhered to it to an extent that allegations, clarifications, opinion makings, mud slandering, hurling abuses, tears, cries, asymptomatic sympathies, plastic valor, hollow manhood, and womanhood are simply becoming a viable and plausible replacement of social network and subsequently, media today.
I wonder if some decorated man or woman from History ever wondered “What is injustice? Justice, which is not done in your favor.” The fundamental idea is what are we seeking from this movement? The entire Indian society is divided between boon or bane on this issue, however, the much-flabbergasted question still exists “What are we looking for – Support, sympathy, a shoulder to cry upon or plain and fair justice? For if you seek the former, you are doing some kind of social favor to yourself, however, if you seek justice, you are establishing a moralistic and empowering chapter for all those deprived and marginalized women who either are petitely submerged in some remote villages and have understood sexual misconduct as a direct biological consequence of being a woman or do not have access to elitist social media or that communicable English language, however, but, the paradigm doesn’t shift, it still says, a woman and her chastity still should be procured the same whatever backdrop she comes from. A little excavation in the
American history would tell us that that during the 18th and 19th century, sexual coercion was a norm with the female slaves in the south and free domestic workers in the north. The situation as late as late as in 1920s was so inevitably inexplicable that the only solution mechanism given to the distressed female employees was to simply quit their jobs if they weren’t able to handle the ‘pressure’. With the wave of post modern awareness and women empowerment rampages and campaigns, the demand for equity and balance grew and therefore, we have in Asia today (including India) certain stringent laws which promise draconian punitive actions against such acts. The significance is, in plain and simple statement, is to strengthen the history than to underline the jargons in
vocabulary, to act methodically than to spread it like a happy new year get to gather. Any movement shall lose its sheen if isn’t dealt at the right time, with right people and at the right place. With the entire barrage of opinions, declamations and debates, the essential element of any story would become feeble, less important, blurred and shall be replaced by personal vendetta, common experience sharing and mere redundant gossiping forgetting about the viable mediums to seek justice. Always remember, you don't need ‘per se’ a movement to call out an injustice done to you. Let’s never forget that the entire ‘# MeToo’ movement was never about a man or woman, it was always about to seek justice about social annihilation on morality and physicality and a vehement yet suppressed demand to achieve it. Between all what is said and what is yet to be done and when humanity and men – women relationships are at a new low, alienations are happening like never before, I firmly imagine some kind of a ‘wetwo’ movement where people can share ideas, experiences and incidents where everyone lose their emotional baggage to share where a man or a woman has been an inspiration to each other’s life. This could range anytime and anything between immediate unadulterated friendships to a sustainable relationship for life. Mother nature did not do anything except creating an emotional thread between a man and woman to establish conventional empathy for each other’s pain and pleasure. The love between a man and woman is not dependent upon the fulfillment of conditions or abiding by norms or laws. It's free and restless. It sets its own principles upon situations and circumstances. Let it flow
