Once Mahatma Gandhi said ‘India will be really free when a lone woman can walk on the streets without fear at midnight’ but today women are being molested even in broad daylight, regretted noted tele serial director T.N. Seetharam here today.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 13th Working Women’s Convention organised by the Mysore division of LIC Employees Association at the Catholic Centre in Bannimantap.

Seetharam further said that globalisation which conquered the country in 1980s had divided the land into two classes like rich and poor thus destroying the very fabric of social, cultural and traditional values which existed in our country.

While the rich feel insulted to use local products like tender coconut and instead consume bottled drinks and wear branded clothes, the poorer section of the society suffer because of lack of education and other facilities, more so in rural areas.

Seetharam opined that only educating women in rural areas could bring them to the mainstream thus filling the vaccum between the rich and the poor.

Prof. B.C. Manjula, Lecturer of Basudev Somani College; H.R. Gayatri, Co-convenor, Southern division of Working Women’s Co-ordination Committee; N. Vijaya Kumar, President of the Mysore division of LIC Employees Association; S.S. Nagesh, General Secretary; B.
