Exposing body a feminist fight for women's rights ???

Maintaining balance between revealing the body and still following traditional values seems to be the biggest dilemma of modern woman. It shudnt be that difficult provided she knows her body and society well. If woman know what her body & self esteem is worth of, then she might not endanger her identity by too much revealing to get the attention.

On a lighter not . to make things easier for Women on %age of revealing, may be fashion gurus of respective regions shud come out and say in unanimity as to what %age of revealing is OK for the society 

Iam waiting for feminist's to give their Gyan by blaming men for being the reason for the women body expose . The Gyan wud be that Fashion industry is controlled by men and its men to feast on women body design clothes in such a fashion that women forced to reveal their maximum body Feminists Gyan may overflow to the extent of blaming media that itz dictating the fashion to women, in turn making us a "fashion doll" and may continue saying these examples show that women are still controlled by male dominance, either directly or thru fashion/media. LOL

The big Q women should ponder upon is , whether exposing body is somekind of feminist fight for their rights or to look beautiful?? Wearing clothes to cover the sensitive parts shud be strictly out of moral choice not out of some fashion compulsion or motive to get attention . If it goes on, where will it stop ?? How about in the name of individual rights someone wanna have a naked sunbath near a pond or over a open terrace ??? One has to understand that we all are bind by some unwritten societal values.

My take on exposing the body is, its not big crime to be little fashionable and in turn try to look beautiful. Show of some arm or leg, deep neck or your back , that's ok. If exposing is to get the attention of men then let me tell you that even if you show majority %age of your body mens eyes still be looking at those which you have covered. Too much expose of your parts wont arouse men , moreover it puts them off . It makes us think your are a cheap and want some cheap attention from our side and that puts us off. 

Fashion come and go but your personality remains forever with you. Guard it religiously.

The way you dress say a lot about you.

Adi Shankaracharya in his Soundarya Lahiri explains beautifully the plight of those women who try to expose their bodies. Below is the stanza .

Naram varshiyamsam nayana virasam narmasu jadam,
Thava panga loke pathitha manudhavanthi sathasa
Gala dweni bhandha kuch kalasa visthrutha sichaya
Hatath thrudyath kanchyho vigalidha dhukoola yuva thaya.

With disheveled hair,
With upper cloths slipping from their busts,
With the lock of the golden belt getting open due to the haste,
And with saris slipping away from their shoulders,
Hundreds of young lasses,
Run after the men,
Who get your sidelong glance,
Even though they are very old,
Bad looking and not interested in love sports .

"I" am an Individual and Independent , do not teach me how to dress, is the modern women war cry . Society is changing fast , lets accept it. Social Rules will hereafter be formulated by consent of both the genders ( add "other" gender too). Make peace, now we have a rebellious generation , they follow no rules. I encourage men to adapt to this new "NO" rule of women , very quickly.

The point that shud be widely debated is as to why women wanna dress shabbily ??? Iam sure even so called liberal women have any rational answer.

Being a Man myself , i can tell you majority cant get over the temptation of looking at half clothed woman . Why ? Its simple , Man is no wood. Its but natural to get attracted to parts of women which are partly exposed. Arent Women get attracted to body parts of men. Dont they peep into Mens button-less shirt for one glimpse of hairy chest ???

The Q Women shud be asking themselves is, are they comfortable wearing slutty dresses ?? My observation of such women, particularly in pubs/ upmarket restaurants is, women are never comfortable in those short/micro clothes. I have noticed they are too conscious of the fact that clothes are not covering the parts which she identifies them as icons of her self respect. Every other minute they check out and try to adjust the garment. My point is, in such conscious state , whats the point of wearing those micro's and mini micros??

The respect we command also depends on the dress we wear ?

Why behave out of the world by dressing as if one is an Super Model ??? Just like First Love & First Kiss there is something like First Look & First Impression in vogue . Its an normal practice that most of the Humans make an opinion on others during his/her first look. Then what kind of first impression you are giving with those micro dresses ??? Do you command respect from public ?? Think, if you are making a slut look puny in comparison.

You agree/subscribe or not, World judges your every step. Be frank and answer dont you judge driver, sweeper, nurse, doctor by the dress. How much respect you give to khaki dresses, which are worn by labour/working class ?? Yep , the respect we command also depends on the dress we wear.

When out in public, wear clothes that fits (whatever size or shape) your body and compliment your outer beauty. Let your dress code be fairly simple and men (animals) mite(sic) stop ogling at you but also surprisingly may get the respect which you deserve the most.

Remember your dress may at times propel others act towards you. Its hard to admit that you probably are the innocent instigator. Having said that, i admit Men too shud behave wisely and not take half clad dressing as invitation to ogle or behave lascivious.

No matter what the dressing is, one shud understand upright that women is not just piece of meat. Its all about poverty of moral values in society. Sadly present society has less number of matured men and women who live by societal values. Need of the hour is a modern girl with blend of traditional values.

  BTW Dont Men love exposing their body, then what for 6 packs and 8 packs ???

Disclaimer : Me neither supporting ogling by men nor second the idea of telling women what to wear. They are mere my 'raw' thoughts.

It's the Men who need to clothe licentious thoughts on Women dressing

Goa Minister advices Women not to wear short dresses, avoid going to pubs, stop dancing to Music. Why just Women ?? Would he suggest the same to Men ??? Agree, Women ( and Men as well) shud dress modestly and behave decently in Public. Social behavior is cultural subjectiveness and priortised over local situations.

Corporates do have dress codes but they do not heap them down on Women staff, Men too follow it.  The Male chauvinists shud understand that safeguarding Bharateeya culture is not all about enforcing restrictions on Women , but empowering them. Bharateeya culture is not about suppression of Women.

Women too shud think, will aping Western society do any good to her outlook ?? Its advisable for them to wear clothes which make them comfortable rather than being shallow and superficial. More than the Women dress, its the Men who shud cultivate thinking wisely , its high time we Men learn how to clothe vulgar thoughts.

Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore Poem On Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj

In what far-off country, upon what obscure day
I know not now,
Seated in the gloom of some Mahratta mountain-wood
O King Shivaji,
Lighting thy brow, like a lightning flash,
This thought descended,
"Into one virtuous rule, this divided broken distracted India,
I shall bind."

~ Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore
