Mathura women’s ‘Matka’ rally against ‘sati’ and dowry

Mathura: Thousands of women in Mathura took out a ‘Matka’ (earthen pitcher) rally on 22 October against some evil customs and traditions like ‘sati’ and dowry etc and also for acquisition of more social rights. This rally is in fact a part of the 3-day colourful ceremony of oath-taking organised by All India Gayitri Association. Gayitri Association is in fact celebrating 50th anniversary of Gayitri Tapoo Bhoomi and every one, old and young, takes oath of respect to this ‘mantra’.

More than fifty thousand persons from different parts of the country participated in this ceremony, many of whom recited this ‘mantra’ thousands of times. Women in saffron dresses and earthen pitchers, painted by their own hands, on their heads and reciting ‘Gayitri’ mantar’ passed through roads and lanes of the city with a view to creating among the people a sense to imbibe the value and respect for this ‘mantra’.

‘Gayitri mantra’ is in fact a Vedic ‘shlok’ (stanza) recitation of which is a symbolic prayer, though traditionally this was not permissible to women, whereas the Constitution grants equal rights to men and women. However, in spite of equal rights guaranteed by the Constitution, women are subjected to discrimination. Crime against women is increasing. Wife-beating is common even among educated and well-to-do people, not to talk of poor and illiterate people in villages.
