Problems Faced By Widows in India

Indian family as a social institution is well known for the emotional and physical support that it providers, for its extended members, many a time but it fails to respond the needs of woman, especially women for in difficult circumstances like widows. There are many problems faced by widows in India.

There are more than 40 millions widows in India – 10 percent of the country’s female population. And for the majority of these women, life is what some have described as a living ‘sati’.  Under ancient law, her husband is god and when he dies, she is expected to manifest inconsolable grief for the rest for her life.

Many widows come across economic hardship during their life. They are bound to send their children out to work to earn income instead of sending them to school for education. Thus widows faced different types of problems in their life.  In addition a widow couldn’t be present at the rituals and celebrations that form such as integral part of Indian life, such as marriage or birth ceremony.

There are many non-governmental organizations who work for the rehabilitation of widows. But only a small percentage of the widows go to them for nay help and there is need to spread awareness among women especially in the rural areas. Men should learn to respect women and take care of them and children’s should be more caring towards their parents and learn to support them as long as they are live.
