The Mahila Dakshata Samiti is all geared up to celebrate its 25th Silver Jubilee anniversary. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the Samiti is organizing a music concert by singer Raghu Dixit on Aug 12th at 6.30pm at Chowdaiah Memorial Hall. The Concert aims at raising funds for its various charitable causes.
Mahila Dakshata Samiti, New Delhi, was first setup by Suman Krishan Kant in response to the SOS calls from women against dowry scourge. Fired with a mission of eradicating such atrocities, Saranya S Hegde setup the Karnataka chapter of the MDS.
Mahila Dakshata Samiti endeavours in the field of social services. Its maxim being ‘Health, Education, Empowerment and Equality’. The Samiti’s range of services include Dakshata Family counselling center, Dakshata Swadhar Greh (short stay home), women empowerment and training programmes, rural health care, education and child welfare, and creating awareness through seminars, workshops and training programs.
On the occasion of the Silver Jubilee celebration, Mrs. Saranya Hegde, President, MDS expressed that “ Today the Samiti has come a long way and received wide spread acclaim for spearheading women’s issues and worked extensively in eradicating their problems, impacting public opinion and creating social consciousness to create a society free of atrocities towards women and children.
We believe in imparting good moral values to children so that they learn to respect women from a young age. There have been so many cases of sexual harassment that are not dealt with and where justice for the woman is not granted. This results in extreme circumstances wherein the woman can go into deep depression or even commit suicide. There are instances when the woman is questioned and does not receive any kind of support from the family and colleagues. The perpetrator is often let away, while the victim is asked to resign, and it is a pity where her character is questioned.
Domestic violence cases also take a long time. Justice delayed is justice denied. There are very few family courts due to which the process takes a very long time. The Government on priority basis should ensure that there are more number of family courts and appoint more judges to tackle this issue. May God give us the strength and motivation to continue with our efforts in giving succor to women in distress and allow them to live a life of dignity and peace.”
