Satyagrah for Men – 2019 –
Daaman participated in Satyagrah for Men, the national protest by Save Indian Family Movement, at Jantar Mantar on 3rd of March, that looked like a Kumbh of men’s rights movement.
Apart from Daaman, activists and members of SIF NGO’s from Chandigarh, Bhopal, Nagpur, Lucknow, Jammu and Kashmir, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Patna, Jharkhand, Chennai, Agra, Bareilly, Indore, Gujarat, (about 30 cities in India) too participated, that means that almost the entire country came down to Delhi to raise their voice demanding National Commission For Men.
Speeches were delivered, ideas shared, media interactions, inter-chapter discussions, the brotherhood, the togetherness was evident with the huge crowd including men women, children in support. Nowhere in the world, these many people must’ve ever gathered for such a cause.
Memorandums were already sent to 51 regional political parties and 8-9 national parties asking them to include our demand in their manifestos and also the memos were sent to PMO and President of India through their officials at Jantar-Mantar.
With such a powerful show of strength, we believe the SIF has set another milestone and we’ve gone to a step higher in our quest to bring peace to the gender discourse in India.
Father’s Day –
Daaman celebrated #FathersDay on 16th June 2019 at Rave 3 Mall, Parvati Bagla Road, Kanpur in the honor of Fathers to admire fatherhood, strengthening paternal bonds and to illustrate the role of a father in the family unit and in the society.
The celebration of Father’s Day holds more relevance in today’s scenario as the Father devotes his life, discharges his responsibility and executes his duties towards his children without expectations. He is first and the best mentor and friend for his child. Though in the present scenario his role is undermined and taken for granted. He has been burdened with all the forced liabilities but devoid of any right in the name of eradicating gender biases by the lawmakers. The lawmakers are biased toward one gender and applying the wicked policy of divide and rule in the family system under the garb of vote bank politics attracting leftists and feminists.
A need is felt to spread awareness in the society that the father should be protected first in order to protect the family. Daaman is making all possible efforts for recognition of health, economic and legal rights of the father and to ensure his well-being in the society.
There was a series of interactive activities in the program like #SelfieWithFather, Video message to Father, drawing placards for the Father, etc. There were very positive response and huge participation involving all kind of people irrespective of gender and age. With high vision, thoughtful and detailed planning and the meticulous execution by the members, Daaman was able to execute such a prestigious program.
On behalf of Daaman family, we convey our thanks and appreciate all the participants, media persons and members of the trust for making this event a success. We also, convey our thanks to the management team of Rave 3 for their warmth response, hospitality and coordination to make this event a memorable experience.
