“ Anenatmana Jibenanuprabishya Namrupe Byakar bani ” – Chandogya Upanishad 6/3/2
“ Tatsristwa Tadebanuprabishat ” – Taittriya Upanishad, Brahmananda Balli, Anubak- 6
The above Vedic concepts reveal that the physical structure of a girl child is not the frame of mere chemical entities, but a holy and preciously built up body having beautiful significance in the world. She holds every possibility of future creation, nurtures the creation and becomes the main shelter of the world with love and respect, utmost perseverance and tolerance. Hence, the existence of the world without a girl is untrue and can never be imagined. An adolescent girl, prior to becoming a mother, acquires the ability in herself to frame the soul in her womb, transforms all types of her powers to the growing up baby through biochemical and psychological means of her body and nurtures till the baby becomes fit to see the light of the eternal world.
The whole process is governed by the power of Supreme Soul and the complete system in the girl’s body is arranged by HIM to carry forward the process of his eternal creation. The holy term “MA” what the mother makes her child utter as her unique identity also has various significances too, e.g. ‘M’ Stands for (i) Ishwar (She is the holder of true knowledge and infinite power), (ii) Aditya (Immortal), (iii) Pragnya (Holder of Wisdom ). ‘A’ Stands for (i) Virat (She is a creator of significant creations), (ii) Agni (She is adorable & can be known by true knowledge), (iii) Vishwa (All creations are within her and she is present among all). As regards a girl, her place in this world is self-proven, and she exclusively deserves highly esteemed regards and adoration in society all over the world.
Hence, the rights of girls for the survival of glorious life should rest on top, whether it may be in Education in this Nuclear era, Safety and Security, Love and Respect or availing due advantages in any other field. However, it is painful that every now and then, girls are being left out and become victims of social abuses like female foeticide, gang-rape, abduction/ trafficking, war/ Communal rape-victim, terror attack, defamation/ degradation on narrow religious grounds, physical/ mental torture, sexual threats in and outside the family and at working places. As remedial measures, there is a need to educate the members at all levels of society to make them aware of the sacred position of girls. At the same time, policies to protect women rights and empowerment must be reviewed and established according to the evolving living situation. This paper emphasizes the ability of girls as undisputed.
The heinous treatments of a corrupt society towards girls is unfortunate. It should be remembered that a man who is boastful of his powers, once got it from the woman who created him.
