Girls Don’t Have Their Own Houses
I was born in a small village of Bangladesh name Kaliaish. Since my born I saw women’s screaming for their pathetic lives. They don’t have a beautiful environment to enjoy their lives; they don’t have any personal wish to lead their own lives. When a girl was born, her parent becomes sad about thinking her future. They know they have to raise this child and arrange a marriage with huge amount of dowry for this child. They don’t know that if they give the child the opportunity to take education, she can make herself better than a boy.
Most of the parent’s attitude towards their daughter is not positive about their education. They think spending money for a girl’s education is just wasting money. When I used to go to school with my father, everyday people asked my father what benefits he will get for educating me. They told my father to pay more attention to my brother’s education than mine. And the women of our neighborhoods said to my mother that she had to teach me how to manage household works. In their concept, spending more time on education was not more important than learning cooking and cleaning. They also said to my mother that I will face problems, when I would go my in-laws house. I was a little girl; so, I didn’t realize why they told like this. Now I know what the reason was. My parent didn’t pay attention to their useless talks. For their strong support I got the opportunity to continue my studies. They taught me how to love my own life, how to make it valuable in this world.
Whenever I see the painful condition of any women in my village, I feel tears in my eyes because only for my parent I am not a victim like them. I can’t imagine a life without any personal wish, hopes, dreams and opinions. I can feel the pain of their meaningless lives. Now I have the opportunity to make me established in my society. My father told me that I have to take responsibilities for those women; I have to work for making their situations better in the society. I am determined to fulfill my father’s wishes. Most of the people in my village as well as in my country think that girls don’t have their own houses. They live in their father’s house before get married and husband’s house after marriage. I want to change this conventional mentality. If boys have their own house, they can say,” It’s my home”, why girls not?
In this world every human being should have equal facilities. The females are fighting to get a good position in their families and societies since the dawn of civilization. They want respect, evaluation for their contributions, love and help from their societies. The development of the world equally depends on both of men and women’s contributions. Why do most of the people in this world assess only men’s contributions? I feel sorry when I think about it because I am a woman. I don’t want to dream of a world that has discrimination between man and women. So, the aim for my future is to work for eradicating conventional mentalities from my society as well as from the world.
