International Women's Day special One Day Trek to
Shivagange only for Women's - [8th March 2008]
About Place :
Shivagange gets its name from the Holy places and temples it hosts. The spring
water found here is considered to the sacred water 'Gange'.
The hillock has few temples
atop and a statue of Nandi carved out of single stone is a beauty. It is about
two kilometers from the bottom of the hillock where there is a village to the
top of the hill. There are many temples all along the way.
The place being a huge collection of boulders and solid
granite rock structures, it invites not just pilgrims but rock climbers and
adventure lovers as well. Though there are no bolted routes, there is plenty of
climbing.The places is mostly crowded all the time, thanks to the temples. At
the same time it because of this number one can find the place very much dirty
and full of garbage, plastic being thrown everywhere. Adding to this the shops
over here sell water and other beverages in plastic sachets. People both local
and visiting kind need a education here on this point.
About Women's Day :
International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups
around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is
designated in many countries as a national holiday. When women on all
continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic,
cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their
Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of
struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.
International Women's Day is the story of ordinary women as makers of
history; it is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women to participate in
society on an equal footing with men. In ancient Greece, Lysistrata initiated a
sexual strike against men in order to end war; during the French Revolution,
Parisian women calling for "liberty, equality, fraternity" marched on Versailles
to demand women's suffrage.
The idea of an International Women's Day first arose at the turn of the
century, which in the industrialized world was a period of expansion and
turbulence, booming population growth and radical ideologies. Following is a
brief chronology of the most important events.
