Shiva ji bowed his head to restore the respect of a woman. The wars of Ramayana and Mahabharta were fought to protect the respect of women.

2. Once gods were losing in a fight against demons. That caused desperation to the gods. They went to Lord Vishnu in desperation. He advised them to make a powerful sword. They went to saint Dadhichi. Saint Dadhichi sacrificed his life to defeat demons. Thus, the author supports the idea of the victory of the
good over evil.

3. The status of women was very good in ancient India. She was worshipped as a goddess. The wars of Ramayana and Mahabharta were fought to protect the respect of women. Now, the status of women is not good. The woman is not worshipped as a goddess. She is fighting to protect her respect in the society.

4. The practice of ‘langar’ stands for equality. It gives the message that we should eat only after we have shared our meal with others. This idea of sharing is not for food only. All the resources and funds should be shared equally.

5. There was never any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed and profession in ancient India. Lord Rama ate tasted berries from a Bheel woman. This shows there was never any discrimination on the basis
of caste.
