Post independence rights organisations are products of different contexts and situations. They are naturally very in their aims and objects, character and mode of working. This, in no way, should cause us to view them as superior or inferior. We are only different. Unlike the political parties, rights organisations need not speak against one another. The political parties have to do it because they compete for the same thing: power. Thus, they have to explain to the people why they should be preferred to the others.
Women in Indian society and politics continue to be pariahs, as events related to Sabarimala and the Me Too movement reveal. Women are barred from entering the Sabarimala temple in Kerala state on grounds of impurity owing to menstruation.
Besides being irrational, this social diktat violates the fundamental right of equality guaranteed under the Indian constitution. Some women approached the Supreme Court, which upheld their right to enter the temple.

Nationalism is not necessarily a blessing, it can be a curse as well. Hitler was a die-hard nationalist, who butchered 6 million Jews (of which lakhs were German citizens) in the national interest. He slaughtered millions of others and caused the Second World War for the same reason. Britain, France and many other nations of Europe conquered scores of countries by hook or by crook and looted their colonies to enrich their own countries.
