Our Women

Our Women

There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.

To me Mother's grace is a hundred thousand times more valuable than Father's. Mother's grace, Mother's blessings are all paramount to me.

I know that the race that produced Sita - even if it only dreamt of her - has a reverence for woman that is unmatched on earth. Sita is the name in India for everything that is good, pure and holy - everything that in women we call womanly. Sita never returned injury. Try to be Sita.

Our woman are not learned, but they are more pure. To every woman every man, save her husband, should be her son. To every man every woman, save his own wife, should be as his mother.

Just as centres have to be started for men, so also centres have to be started for teaching women. The uplift of the women, the awakening of the massess, must come first, and then only can any real good about for the country, for India.
Women must be put in a position to solve their problems in their own way. No one can or ought to do this for them. And our Indian women are as capable of doing it as any in the world.

Along with other things, our women should acquire the spirit of valour and heroism. In the present day, it has become necessary for them also to learn self defence. See, how grand was the Queen of Jhansi!

Who are you to solve women's problems? Are you the Lord God, that you should rule over every widow and every woman? Hands off! They will solve their own problems.
