Women's Reservation Bill

Government of India has placed a bill before Parliament of India to give 33% reservation in Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha to the women. It looks so good that government is making efforts to improve the status of women in our society. But I suspect that government has such an intention. 

When I heard about it I felt elated but when I went through the details of it and how the government has pursing this bill, I am of opinion that this would never become a reality. Rather it is just another gimmick and will serve no purpose. It is just a flawed effort by various ranks and files of political spectrum with only goal to remain politically correct.

Considering the social dynamics of the country, the women’s reservation bill rather than empowering women would end up exploiting women even more. And the reason is obvious. If passed in Parliament it would be forced on the society than accepted voluntarily.
