Attaining consummate satisfaction in life is not impossible but the question which arises in everyone's mind is that how we can attain it, what one should do for satisfying mind. Satisfaction can only be acquired when our mind is crystal clear and free from every confusing thought. We the human are very selfish and want to lead our life according to our own will. We are satisfied, happy and at peace till things are going according to our will but when anything goes wrong we start worrying that why the hell is this happening with us, as a result our mind get disturbed and we get dissatisfied with life. Everyone wants to live a life free from obstacles and wrong doings.
Youth of today is mostly suffering from mind dissatisfaction. Their thoughts clash with each other to reach to the conclusion that how they can gain the ultimate satisfaction. They are confused that what actually they want from their lives. According to my point of view this situation occurs when you have decided to do something, you have set the goals in your life but then you are experiencing hardships in accomplishing your dreams. This leads to distracted thoughts and ultimate dissatisfaction. As they are in growing stage they don't understand that life is not a bed of flowers and they have to face many hurdles that will be against their will. Sometimes this dissatisfaction leads to trauma and mental and physical agony.
I think the real cause of dissatisfaction among youth is lack of understanding and communication gap between parents and their children. Parents compel their kids to leave their dreams, instead force them to follow theirs' footsteps; as a result conflict situation arises. If parents understand what their children want and allow and help them to achieve their goals then many conflicting situations can be avoided and kids' satisfaction level will not be affected.
As the desires of people are increasing the graph of dissatisfaction is also rising. Desires give rise to yearning, lust and other negative traits that create turmoil and anxiety in one's life. We should have goals but these goals have to be realistic and worthy of pursuit. Then we should work hard for fulfilling them but this is not important that we can get everything in our lives but the thought that at least we give it a try will satisfy our minds. We should not spoil what we have by desiring what we don't have. If we are contented with what we have, we can lead a peaceful and satisfactory life.
We should be focused, persistent and firm in taking decisions and should follow our dreams by keeping in mind our norms, values and most importantly our family nobility. If people achieve the goals in life what was decided by them then I am pretty sure that satisfaction would be the end result.
“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without concerned dependence upon the future, not to please ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient. The ample blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content and satisfied with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.” (Seneca)
Women empowerment refers generally to the augmentation of freedom of choice, their right to have access to opportunities and resources, their right to have freedom to control their own lives and their right to make decisions. In Pakistan females are almost 52 percent of the total population and with their active participation Pakistan can become a healthier, better educated, more peaceful, more prosperous and developed country. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are vital tools to achieve the required level of growth rate and developmental goals.
In Pakistan the situation is changing rapidly, women are acquiring higher education and working in all fields and becoming empowered. Although we are living in a male dominating society but still the typical trend for women are changing with time. Women has made the place in all walks of life and now most of them are allowed to work, study and enjoy their rights but still many things have to be done and should be improved on urgent basis. In Pakistan women are facing problems in every aspects of life and are working hard for empowering themselves. Women are the future mothers and when they will be educated, confident and strong in return our nation will be educated and empowered.
Although Separate Ministry for women development have been established which is working for providing ease and basic necessities to women but a lot more work and effort is required for improving the condition of women in Pakistan. There is crucial need to upgrade the status of woman in our society and it is only possible if she is given the rights of education, worship, freedom of opinion, freedom of making decision and economic freedom.
Few people have misconception that women freedom and empowerment is not necessary and is foreign countries agenda but their thinking is false. Women have been facing problems of gender inequalities all over the world. Quran and the Hadith also emphasize on the protection of legal and mental rights of women.
In short woman of our country need support of her family and close relations in order to contribute their share in the progress and sustainable development of our society.
“No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you; we are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of houses as prisoners” (Muhammad Ali Jinnah, 1944)
Honor killing is an act of reprisal, mostly murder, committed by male member of the family against female family members, who has been perceived to have brought disrespect to her family. Such killings are typically committed by victim's family members, relatives and/or community.
Mostly women are the victims of honor-killing but it has been extended to men too. There are variety of reasons which trigger honor killings and these include; refusal to an arrange marriage, desire to marry by own choice, bold acts unacceptable to family and community, women inquiring a divorce, being the victim of forced sexual abuse etc. Data reveals that in our country 6000 women have been murdered on the name of prestige and most of them belong to Sindh and Baluchistan. We mostly come across the news of Karoo Kari and many lives are wasted for so called honor. In some areas and communities such killings are considered as private matter of the family and there is no law for controlling this crime.
In interior parts of Sindh honor killing is being considered as their part of culture. Men consider women as their property and woman has no right to choose her life partner and if she does so she is declared as Kari. They have given the name to this cruel act as their 'Rivayat'. Wadaira system has contributed a lot in this aspect as no one can raise voice against this injustice due to strong hold of these Wadairas. Lower literacy rate in the rural areas of Pakistan is one of the major contributing factors and also wild ego of males has strong association with such killings.
Honor killing, an act of brutality and violence cannot be eradicated from our society unless and until government takes action. Wadaira and landlords are the ones sitting in the parliaments and ruling the government, in such situation how we can expect any change in Pakistani society? NGO's, Human Rights activists and Media is the only hope. They should step forward and force the government to take effectual steps to abate Wadaira hold from interior parts of Pakistan and should conduct awareness campaigns to aware the people about the repercussions of such murders. Increase in literacy rate will also open the minds of people and they will realize the rights of women and will start treating them as humans. If effective steps are not taken to control this practice it will keep on engulfing the precious lives of women.
