International Men’s day events in Mumbai
We, Protect India n Family Foundation, are a part of global group of NGOs and local self-help groups((wherever Indian-NRI families live) and responsible Indian citizens who are concerned about the future of Indian families and hence our future as a Nation by and large. Our network is made up of like minded persons and NGOs who have dedicated their souls in bringing back the ‘meaning’ and happiness of “Family”, back to at least(for a start) Indian families.
For this result we are trying to work on different fronts including Child rights for shared parenting(as per the welfare of the child, keeping its development as prime in our minds). You could see the website of our sister NGO, CRISP(Children’s Right Initiative for Shared Parenting) www.crisp-india.org for more on this front.
The next avenue that we are exploring is to change the mindset of public in general and hence higher authorities including law-makers, that ‘Man’ is not always the tormentor, he actually deserves a hug many a times for his selfless efforts for the upkeep of his family and for his dedicated loyalty and hard work which makes for this Nation, as we see it.
Many a times a ‘Man’ is not only denied of this simple ‘reward’ of a simple hug, but he is also brandished as a cruel, in-humane, insensitive partner(by default) in any social setting(let alone familial situations). This is why we see people taking sides even without bothering to ‘verify the facts of the specific situation’, this bias is shockingly evident in cases when a man is accused of indiscretions/cruelty made out towards a woman(women)- he sometimes bears the burnt of being a ‘Man’- due to his image been “Stereotyped” as that of a typically insensitive Animal, almost a perfect animal which just only thinks about pleasures of various kinds and then Food(may be TV too comes as a strong ingredient in the imagery of a stereotypical ‘Man’).
This scenario, as you would also acknowledge, is far from the reality for even the ‘average’ man living in the present day society, and is detrimental for the upkeep of our time-tested family systems which is single-handedly supporting India from plunging to the abyss of unfathomable anarchy and unrest, and this is shocking trend which could actually gobble up the entire great Indian population clean, in no time.
As a net result, men are seen to be losing their rights, and even denied of their emotional needs, such as their need, and right, of being their for their children, especially when they need a father in their most sensitive & critical developmental years. Even lets, for a minute, forget a father’s need to see these days of his kid, to be a part of these days and experience a bit of joy, which is one among the few life-forces which sustains life and enthusiasm in most of us as men.
