Indian women performs laborious labor, works in fields, is also arable, even in the organizational sector their presence is registering at every level and contributing to the economy. Women who carry burdens of temples, charity, pilgrimage- bathing, are jewelery lovers, hand pick over husband’s pocket (women's contribution to the economy?) What are women doing? On marriages, couples - congestions, etc., spending extravagance through rituals, appear heavy on men's pockets, women don’t they put the economy in crisis? Throughout the year they are busy in the name of festivals, and in the kitchen; time-consuming, modern women. Are they able to can prove their value and dedication to society, nation and economy?
Indian society has been religious, emotional, and conservative since millennia. During the last 1000 years of deliberate suppression, the society has been able to with stand the onslaught of foreign aggressors and has retained its character, but some of the malpractices also crept in and gained roots in the society. From time to time, the great wise men and social reformers like Tulsi, Kabir, Dayanand Saraswati, Raja Ram Mohan Rai, Ishwar Chand Vidya Sagar, and Swami Vivekananda etc and other during their own time and regions, tried to get rid of it. There was some degree of success and there is still a lot of work to be done.
In the Indian context, suppressed-downtrodden woman, when she connects herself with Indian culture as a mother, she automatically gets the power and attains Narayani form, to run the society, nation and economy.
Onam, Pongal, Lohri are initiation of the Festivals starting with, the dawn of the day of Gods on Makar Sankranti, only the simple and accessible food items like Khichdi so that it reaches the last to the lowest person in the society, these charitable women continue their donations in the name of charity. Apart from local economy through pilgrim baths, the economy reinforces the economy from one end to the other. In addition to this, indirectly, the "money" used in these activities is also being streamed in the society and the economy. In the name of pilgrim place, wherever women go, they carry their currency with them to make economy stronger.
The jewelery loving woman, who steels money from her husband's pocket, preserves the mood for her husband and family as well as for society and the economy. The most sophisticated and refreshing example of this is the worldwide recession of 2008, when the world was in hitch holes in the vortex of the slowdown of all the economies, there was no special impact on our Indian economy. Foreign economists adorned India on this situation, and then they came to know that sensible finance management and saving trend of the Indian woman kept the economy steady.
Traditional customs such as marriages, etc. have almost run throughout the society in the whole year. These custom are managed by the lady of the house. Through these customs, the virtue of almost all the main sections of the society is also achieved and then they are also nurtured. Women, who know the meaning of fatigues, actually spend as per the ability and capacity of the family to make the best contribution in the family's liability and economy.
Holi - Diwali, Eid, Christmas, Shitala Ashtami, Chhat pooja, Durga Pooja, Guru Poojan, Ganesh Chaturthi, Shama Parv, etc. From the east to the west and from north to south, the whole society fills with enthusiasm. Festivities Provide employment to the society as well, it increases and emphasises the value of farmer’s crop production. Provides opportunities for industries in the production, through merchants, make the economy prosper through money circulation. In the western economy, throughout the year, music concerts, or by different events, their economy is not strengthened as compared to Diwali in India. Globally business houses want to encash the opportunity on the occasion of Diwali in India. According to the statistics, the business of the entire year 35% -40% alone accounts for Diwali. Government and Private Business houses, for them, economic planning begins 8-10 months before Diwali and they make their plans and strategies.
Festivals that run throughout the year give the economy a different level and provide strength and stability.
It is also worth mentioning that no matter what product or advertisement it is preferred to the family and the woman is kept in the main role. “सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिना, सर्वे सन्तु निरामया” inspires the depth of the life force and economy of India due to the spirit and the nature of the festival. The tradition of celebrating different days, on the basis of our festivals, has inspired the west of celebrating different days, but it is limited only to exchange of cards and gift items. Being limited cannot neglect the effect. Whereas we have festivals like Raksha Bandhan, or Bhai Dauj, Karwa Chauth or Chhat festivities, all in the society, without any discrimination, become indistinguishable during that time. It goes without saying that "woman" is the axis of all of these. We have also been told that "यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवता" means that where the women are honoured the deities reside there.
Perhaps Indian women carrying burdens like, Orthodox, Traditionalists, are sublime and not so bad. They are guiding force of the Indian Economy.
