NPCC on International Women’s Day 2021

 The theme for 2021 has been declared to raise “women Leadership for an equal future”, which aims to foster partnership in the process of making decision.

It is 110 years since International Women’s Day is being celebrated. It is high time we come to realise the virtues and endeavour for better order.

We learn that the movement began on 28th Feb 1909 when a Socialist Party of America designated this day to honour the Garment Workers’ and the first celebration began on 8th March 1911.

We are over a century behind to realise the values and virtues of women although we enjoy and  live out of Mother’s love that has no bounds. Many may have read the message of Ms Khrienuo Tachü, Chairperson, NSCW. I am in full agreement with her.

In my personal assessment and perception, to achieve the objective of the year, there is need to reach Nagaland’s women with education on the concepts of democratic governing. Take them out from the idea of a domestic prison to an era of independent thinking. Enable them to make the right choices and restrain the wrongs. 

Democracy is not personal law or customary. It is for the welfare of the people, community and for public interest. To achieve these goals women should mobilise the 50% of women voters that are already enlisted in the Electoral Roll. The easiest way to mobilise is to agree with the common issues that are confronting and impacting society.

We have observed that Women in Nagaland avoid public meetings and also stay away from participating in discussions.

As long as women do not identify issues of common interest and come out to participate in the political parties and consciously vote in the process of election, they will be continue to be left behind although it is unintended. Women leaders are successful in the nation and the world. In my consideration, women leadership has produced more balanced ruling.

Politics is to facilitate, comfort and administrate. Politics needs Mother’s love that has no equal. Good politics is minus ego, arrogance and selfishness and I find these virtues are mostly natural with Women. On this international Women’s Day celebration, I wish all Nagaland’s women to rise and take up the common issues for a better Nagaland.
