Women's Day with a sassy bunch of Telly Diva's




To celebrate women's triumph all over the nations, each year International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. In celebration of this lovely day of womanhood, we had a chat with some beautiful TV actresses.

Cute and bubbly Giaa Manek, currently seen as Jennie in Sab TV's show 'Jeannie Aur Juju' is much like her onscreen character.  After playing a dumb yet intelligent Gopi Bahu, she decided to move out and left Star Plus' 'Saath Nibhaana Saatiya' to shake her legs in 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. 

For women there are a million reasons to be happy as they end up with two X chromosomes. What in your opinion is the biggest advantage of being a woman?
There are certain things which only we women can execute, like we can give birth. I think motherhood is the biggest pro of being a woman.

Are women weaker than men?
We are considered weak but the real fact is that we are emotionally much stronger than men.

Women play different role in one life span.
As a female we need to be multi-tasked, be it a mother, a housewife or a working woman.

Eve-teasing, physical abuse and even rape are very common social problems. What one piece of advice would you give to the Women to fight back?
It's a very serious issue. My advice is female education. As it is said “When you educate a man; you educate a man but when you educate a woman; you educate a generation.” So it is very important that all the females get good education. It will ultimately enrich them as a human to stand for their rights, have courage and be brave.

Any message to the readers of Scrutiny?
Be happy to be what you are, try to improve everyday and think what you have done for others.

Tina Dutta started her career at a sheer age of 5. She starred in Bengali Film 'Choker Bali' with Aishwarya Rai and further played younger Lolita in 'Parineeta'. She rose to fame after she starred as protagonist in Colors' show 'Uttaran'. Currently she is playing dual role of Ichcha and Meethi in the show.

What in your opinion is the biggest advantage of being a woman?
Being a woman itself is the prevalent advantage.  We have the ability to give life. No man can ever know what it feels like to give birth. The labor pain doesn't matter when a women holds her new born in her hands.

Any other advantage
We are more capable of expressing our feelings while men find it harder.

It is very well known that every coin has two sides and almost every good thing has a darker side. The same goes true with womanhood.
Yes there are so many cons of womanhood too.  Have you ever heard about Adam-teasing, male-feticide, woman burning her husband because of dowry, man gang raped by women? I am sure your answer is NO. I think all these are the drawbacks of being a woman.

What one piece of advice would you give to the Women to fight back?
Women should be independent since it not only make her financially stable but also increases her confidence to fight back. Do not tolerate eve-teasing, domestic violence. Discuss your problems with your parents and if required take help from local police station and also go for counseling.

Any message to the readers of Scrutiny?
Be safe, blessed and spread happiness since you have got just one life. Don’t spoil it with negativity or small issues.

Ridhi DograVashisth started her career with Zee TV’s ‘Jhoome Jiya Re’. This power packed performer and natural actor later did shows like Laagi Tujhse Lagan, Seven, Horror Nights, Swarg but she gained popularity for portraying the lead role in much talked bold show  Maryaada-Lekin Kab Tak’. She will soon be seen in Life Ok show ‘Savitri’ as one of the lead protagonists.

For women there are a million reasons to be happy as they end up with two X chromosomes. What in your opinion is the biggest advantage of being a woman?
The biggest advantage every woman has is the fact that they are multi-faceted and multi- tasking. They are in touch with their emotional/intuitive side and when required they can easily switch to being more objective and practical. From the world’s renowned CEOs to our house maids; I believe all women have that capability to be able to run a career and be sensitive to their family, elders, spouse, and children.

It is very well known that every coin has two sides and almost every good thing has a darker side. The same goes true with womanhood.
That's one way of looking at it; I don't look at life like that (smile) and certainly not womanhood. Being a woman is the most beautiful blessing a human can get in every aspect.  But what do concerns the mind are the incidents like the Delhi gang rape and many such cases over the years. As I am from Delhi, I know the mentality of some migrants in the city. If there is a darker side of being a woman, it's the society that comprises of some really mindless men who do inhuman and gory acts towards women.  So it's not the women who have a darker side.  It's the society that doesn't understand their importance and dignity. They fail to absorb the importance of women in this so called 'Man's World'.

Do you believe in equality?
I've always said that I believe in equality. The things men can do women can do too if they had to!! Yes, there are some things only a woman can do and a man cannot even understand, likewise there are some things men do, like wrestle (laughs) that women don't wish too. Jokes apart, I don't think it's important for women to compete with men. Honestly, there cannot be a comparison. The 2 genders are very different and that's the beauty of it all.

Eve-teasing, physical abuse and even rape are very common social problems.  What one piece of advice would you give to the Women to fight back?
There's a piece of blog I had written in this regard soon after the Dehli gang rape took place and I still echo the same sentiments. Women all over should believe in the power they possess. Be alert, aware, and raise your voice, raise an alarm if needed. And the biggest gift we have from god is our intuition. Believe in it. You will be able to take precautions before it's too late. To all the women, I'd also like to say, don't raise yours sons like they are god-sent, or treat your husband's like they are your 'karta-dharta'. I'm not belittling men but just saying, women don't need dependency.  They need to be independently strong. They need to have their own identity and their own mind. Don't ever disregard your sixth sense. If you have an inclining NOT to step into a pub, walk a road, take a bus then please DON'T. Take your own decisions and always be responsible.

Anything you want to do to empower Women?
Yes, I am already a part of an initiative called 'shyamchi aai' which is an NGO started from scratch by my husband and Raqesh's sister Sheetal Bapat. It supports children and girl child in particular who don't have the financial or even the emotional support to study in recognized institutes, schools and study models up to the point of their first job. It's an absolutely brilliant endeavor started by tai, as we call her and I'm glad that I'm a part of it.

'Maryada' and now 'Savitri' your shows some way or another empower women.
 I myself cannot do any acting assignment where I'm playing a weak and submissive girl. I have knowingly walked out of auditions of such roles.  So yes, it's something I do on purpose and I'm more than grateful that I get such offers. Maryada was just that, so is my new show which is called 'Savitri' which will soon be on air on life ok. It's also a story of an ordinary girl who believes in her inner powers when she is pushed to a corner.

Any message to the female readers of Scrutiny?
My message to the readers - you are perfect because you are a woman. You are perfect with all your imperfections. So never doubt your individuality. God made you perfect the way you are… Yes, to enhance it and round it off like an uncut diamond is in the hands of the life you lead. So be open to a life full of experiences, leanings and evolvement. That is the true treasure of being a complete human.

Go on..
For, women's day I wish all the girls, ladies, women a very happy 'you' day. Don't wait for any man to celebrate your being today. Go out have fun, do what to wish to, put yourself first or the things that give you the most happiness. And always know you are special. The world would be a monstrous place if there weren't any women in it… Celebrate yourself and the women who are precious to you.
