Ruma Biswas, Sushama Biswas
Abstract: 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 & preciously built up body having beautiful significance in this world. She holds every possibility of future creation nurtures the creation & becomes the main shelter of the world with love & respect, utmost perseverance & tolerance. Hence, the existence of the world without a girl is untrue & 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 & psychological means of her body & nurtures till the baby becomes fit to see the light of eternal world. The whole process is governed by the power of Supreme Soul & the complete system in the girls body is arranged by HIM to carry forward the process of his eternal creation. The holy term MA what the mother makes her child to utter as her unique identity has also various significances too e. g. M Stands for a) Ishwar (She is the holder of true knowledge & infinite power), b) Aditya (Immortal), c) Pragnya (Holder of Wisdom). A Stands for a) Virat ( She is creator of significant creations), b) Agni (She is adorable & can be known by true knowledge), c) Vishwa (All creations are within her & she is present among all). As regards a girl, her place in this world is self-proven & she exclusively deserves for high esteemed regards & adoration in the society all over the world. There are many instances like Madam Curie, Florence Nightingale, Sunita Williams, Mother Teresa, Rani Laxmibai, Donna Strickland ( Noble prize winner in physics, 2018) who had done glorious achievements in the world. Hence the rights of girls for survival of glorious life should rest on top, whether it may be in Education in this Nuclear era, Safety & Security, Love & Respect or availing due Advantages in any other field. But it is painful that every now & then, girls are being left out & being the sufferer 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 & outside the family & at working places etc. As remedial measures, there is a need to educate the members at all levels of the society & make them aware about the sacred position of girls. At the same time, policy to protect the women rights & empowerment is to be reviewed & established according to the growing situation. This paper emphasizes that the ability of girls is undisputed. The heinous treatments of evil society towards girls is unfortunate. It should be remembered that a man who is boastful of his powers, once got it from a woman who created him.
