Motherhood has been regarded as one of the best blessings of God to a woman. She finds herself blessed enough to have kids. Life seems to be fulfilling with a lovely family.
But not every woman is that much fortunate, specially those who belong to unprivileged sections of the Society, such a Society, where Gambling and Drinking has spread its web in almost all families. Not even children are left untouched by this dirty addiction.
Had the Heads of these families rather the men of the families been even a little bit of responsible towards their families, they would have never invited their own destruction in the form of getting addicted to Drinking. Can we expect a Drunkard to look after his family? Not at all. Just because, he has no control over his own senses, what the hell he will look after his family?
Today, I’ll talk about two such mothers, whose faces I am not able to forget. Although a man can show his back to his obligations but a woman can not turn her face away from her duties to look after her children. She does everything possible to take care of her children, to feed them, the most important of all.
Mother of Jeetesh & Sandhya ( 6 & 4 yr old resp. ) is left with no option other than to work out and earn. She works in a factory to get some money home as her husband is a drunkard, who sits idle whole day. She leaves her kids at ESGW Center, when she goes for work. Not only “she” is the victim of her husband’s verbal & physical abuses but also her young kids get beaten up in such a cruelsome manner whose after effects are painful to watch.
Mother of Komal & Shivam ( 6 & 5 yr old resp. ) also has the same plight. Her husband also is a drunkard, who keeps on lying in the park drunk. He has nothing to do with his family. Such a coward men they are. Komal’s mother works as a maid to earn two times meal. She could not save her loving child’s life who had fallen sick with fever, because her drunkard husband on the pretext of domestic violence had snatched away the only money left with her which were meant to get Komal medicines. We can’t even imagine the pain of the mother who lost her child.
What do you think, the cause of Komal’s death & scars of wounds on the delicate skins of Jeetesh & Sandhya was ? And why only Komal, Jeetesh or Sandhya, there are many other students at the Center of ESGW like Suraj, Guddi, Tamanna & others who also have the same story. Excessive Alcohol Consumption is the root cause of the pathetic condition among deprived people. Alcohlics do not hesitate in doing any sort of malpractice that would quench their thirst of liquor. Those who are drunkards don’t realize the sufferings, their so called pleasing alcohol consumption brings to their own family. The short term pleasure of Alcohol consumption brings nothing other than destruction.
Children are considered to be image of God and for women also, it is said that where women are given respect, there, stays God.
Still, there are many who are not willing to understand this fact and are rigid with the practice of self destruction.
Please let us all take some steps to stop this evil practice, to make peace happen in the families which are on the verge of destruction. Let us spread as much awareness as we can on the adverse effects, Alcoholism brings. Let us make people aware of the ways to get rid of alcoholism and other drug addictions. Please let us come together because without one another’s support, such a big transformation in the society cannot take place.
