Whoever tends to deem themselves powerful, must never disregard the responsibility that tags along with the authority they possess. Eastern civilization is considered to be a male dominant society. I will play according to this social order’s own accord. Man has been considered powerful and superior (mainly due to stronger physical strength) and therefore has the responsibility of taking care of his family.
He has to safe guard his womenfolk and children. But unfortunately ‘man’ or the male species has become the biggest enemy of his own womenfolk. Child marriages, physical torture, mental torment and rape are a part of our daily lives. Women are kept away from schools and have no personal life or any job fulfillment; many become doctors and lawyers but never practice. Men who have great power in our society also have great responsibility.
