हालांकि किसी की सोच पर हमारा कोई जोर नहीं है लेकिन यहां सबसे पहले यह स्पष्ट कर देना चाहती हूं कि चोखरेबाली ब्लॉग भले ही महिलाओं का है किंतु यह किन्हीं भी कूंठाओं से ग्रसित नहीं है । यहां सिर्फ स्त्री ही नहीं पुरुष भी आकर अपने विचार रखते हैं । शायद वंदना मिश्रा जी ने रिपोर्ट को गहरआईसे पढा़ नहीं हैं या फिर वह खुद रूढिवादिता से बाहर नहीं निकल पाई है । जबकि यहां बात समाज में व्याप्त कुरीतियों ,अव्यवस्था, बुराईयों तथा महिलाओं के उअत्पीड़न के खिलाफ समाज में बदलाव लाने की है ।हम सब जानते हैं कि विवाह एक ऎसी प्रणाली है जिसके बगैर हम समाज की संरचना की कल्पना भी नहीं कर सकते । आज मैं अपनी बेटी को हर वो चीज देने का प्रयास करती हूं जिसकी उसे जरूरत है । आज मईं अपने बेटे व बेटी की परवरिश में कतई फर्क नहीं करती । जबकि मैं ऎसे परिवार में पली बढी़ जहां बेटियों की किसी ख्वाहिश को पूरा नहीं किया जाता था बल्कि बेटों की हर बात मानी जाती थी । मेरी मॉ के समय की बात करें तो तब हालात और बुरे थे कि बेटी को बाहर की दुनिया से कोसों दूर घर की चारदीवारी में कैद करके रक्खा जता था । देखा जाए तो अब और तब के माहौल मे जमीन - आसमान का अंतर है यह बदलाव नहीं तो और क्या है ?
मैं पहले भी कह चुकी हूं कि महिलाओं के अधिकारों का हनन करने में स्वयं महिला ही सबसे आगे है । कहीं मजबूरी कह सकते हैं लेकिन अकसर बेटे की चाह में स्वयं मॉ ही बेटी को जन्म देने से पहले मार देती है , आखिर ऎसा क्यों ? आज भी ऎसे कई परिवार हैं जहां बेटे के जन्म पर खुशियां मनाई जाती हैं और बेटी के जन्म पर मातम सा छा जाता है । अत: हम लोगों का यही प्रयास है कि बदलाव के इस दौर में कोई भी बेटी जन्म से पहले भगवान को पयारी न हो !यहां मैं आपको एक मेरे पास आए मेल को पढ़वाना चाहती हूं --------
I am in Heaven now... I so wanted to be your little girl. I don't quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existance. I was in a dark, yet comfortable place. I saw I had fingers and toes. I was pretty far along in my developing, yet not near ready to leave my surroundings. I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping. Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me.Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry. I heard Daddy yelling back. I was sad, and hoped you would be better soon. I wondered why you cried so much. One day you cried almost all of the day. I hurt for you. I couldn't imagine why you were so unhappy.That same day, the most horrible thing happened. A very mean monster came into that warm, comfortable place I was in. I was so scared, I began screaming, but you never once tried to help me. Maybe you never heard me. The monster got closer and closer as I was screaming and screaming, "Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me." Complete terror is all I felt. I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn't anymore. Then the monster started ripping my arms off. It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain. It didn't stop.Oh, how I begged it to stop. I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off.Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying. I knew I would never see your face or hear you say how much you love me. I wanted to make all your tears go away. I had so many plans to make you happy. Now I couldn't; all my dreams were shattered. Though I was in utter pain and horror, I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all. I wanted more than anything to be your daughter. No use now, for I was dying a painful death. I could only imagine the terrible things that they had done to you. I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone, but I didn't know the words you could understand.And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them; I was dead. I felt myself rising. I was being carried by a huge angel into a big beautiful place. I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone. The angel took me away to a wonderful place... Then I was happy.. I asked the angel what was the thing was that killed me. He answered, "Abortion". I am sorry, for I know how it feels." I don't know what abortion is; I guess that's the name of the monster. I'm writing to say that I love you and to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl. I tried very hard to live. I wanted to live. I had the will, but I couldn't; the monster was too powerful. It sucked my arms and legs off and finally got all of me. It was impossible to live. I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you. I didn't want to die. Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster. Mommy, I love you and I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did. Please be careful.
Your Baby Girl.
