Aarohi is an Independent girl with big dreams. She always wanted to stand at place where she will be admired, loved and respected by many. Her family always stood by her side in every decision she made. After finishing her Masters in Business Administration, She wanted to start a business of her own. She did research for same to find what works well and essentials to start a business. She approached a bank for loan to start her business, Manager of the bank is some distinct relative of her father. Aarohi explained him her business plan and objectives and provided all necessary documents. He signed the documents to proceed further into loan process. When Aarohi was about to bid leave, he said “Have your seat.” and paused for while and continued “I know your father very well. He is great person, he worked hard to reach the position where he stand today. I admire him a lot. And I feel sad to see you running behind banks and offices to raise funds for your business. At this age you should start a family of your own. Business and all these is a difficult job especially for ladies. I know how difficult it is for you to do all this being a girl I respect you for that. You are no less than a son for your father. I wish and hope you will make your parents proud. All the best.” Aarohi bid him leave and was returning home but her mind was still in that manager’s room and her thoughts were rotating around his words. ” he is feeling Sad for me. Why? Just because I’m a girl and working at the age of marriage? And daughter helping her family is some sort of thing to be sympathized ? He is proud of me not for hard work I’m doing but for even after being a girl, I’m doing all this. Why is he showing such sympathy? Will he say same words if I be man, Son. His respect for me is out of sympathy of being a lady and doing business.” There is nothing wrong in respecting women but not just because of their gender, respect them as they are also humans, respect them for their qualities and respect them for the good work they do. “ALL THEY NEED IS YOUR RESPECT NOT SYMPATHY.”
