Mysore/Mysuru: The city’s Police Training School (PTS) Principal Dr. Dharanidevi Malagatti observed that atrocities will come down if parents do not discriminate between boys and girls at their home.

She was speaking at the installation ceremony (2021-22) of new office-bearers of Inner Wheel Club of Mysore Gold at a private hotel in Yadavagiri here on Sunday last.

Noting that though nature does not discriminate between men and women, it is humans who were responsible for  gender discrimination, Dr. Dharanidevi Malagatti said that gender discrimination does not appear suddenly in the society and it starts from home first. However, the society speaks about the importance of equality  when the problem of gender discrimination grows bigger, she regretted.

Opining that everyone should start practicing gender equality from their homes, she said that Pink colour should not be representative of only women. Stressing on the need for giving equal status to a girl child as that of a boy, she said that now a days women stand equal with men in almost every field. The support of parents will help their wards in achieving set goals, she added.

Appreciating the Inner Wheel Club of Mysore Gold’s initiative of  ‘Ondu Mushti Akki’ (One fistful of rice), she said that this initiative helped the Club in collecting  500-kg of rice, which was distributed among over 50 families during the lockdown. She also lauded the Club for taking 15 diabetic patients for treatment at Ujire, which shows its commitment for the society.
