We are in 2020 where we’re learning so many new things and accepting new ways to be complete and involved to be better. Since long back girls are not aware about technology because of family and parents, they have always been stopped from using a mobile phone, laptop and any technology. Parents have these thoughts like, “Only boys know technology and how to use it, girls can’t do it, they don’t have a brain.” There are few other statements they always say like, “if a girl started using technology it is not good for them, phone and laptop on their hands does not look good “or “If she uses mobile she can connect to male easily and get in touch through medias, she can’t make accounts on social media platforms even they have private account then too they never allowed”. These are the statements which always affect a girl’s mind which makes them decide to not learn technology.

Boys always get mobile phones at an early age in India like if he turned 13-14 where girls get mobile when they enter in degree college or may be after graduation. They always say they don’t have money to invest on their daughter mobile, this is the inequality which girls are facing.

Now, everything has changed because of this pandemic. Even school and college are now virtually, girls are learning technology and connecting themselves with online lectures, they are discussing, questioning, answering and presenting their thoughts virtually. They are managing their time for household chores and lectures, it’s difficult for them but they never stopped no matter what.  They are not just using technology for themselves they are helping their siblings for their school online lecture and they are teaching the online process and how to study online to their siblings and friends. From this pandemic, they are building their confidence, skills, technology and learning every moment.

Girls are always staying at home only before pandemic too, they always do their best in everything. Few girls have started teaching technology to their parents, they are creating awareness in the family like how to use and how everything works. Girls should not have to take responsibility for household chores and cooking always. They are capable, they are multitaskers, they are strong and they are educating themselves alongside sharing their thoughts and learning with family members and friends.

She knows how to write in a book with her pen and how to use technology with her mobile and laptop. She has decided to change everyone’s mindset and she is writing a history and her story everywhere. She knows maybe she will not get appreciation from anyone but still she believes she could do and one day society will applaud her.
