Durga – A warrior goddess with martial skills, riding lion and holding weapons in her eight hands to destroy and create, is an example of women-power called “Shakti”. Often shown in the midst of her war with Mahishasur, yet her face is calm and serene.
She is protective and violent not because of the hatred, egotism or getting pleasure in violence but because she acts out of necessity for the love of the good, for the liberation of those who depend on her and a mark of the beginning of soul’s journey to creative freedom.
The same way many Durga is fighting with different demons of unorganized sectors from centuries. For the liberation and affection of their loved ones, these Durga are in the midst of war keeping her face calm and serene.

Apart from all these the most grieving factor for them is- not getting that social status, what other Durga enjoys.
The mandate of the time is to include them in teaching, guiding and skill enhancement. The same time has to motivate people and leaders to work for their betterment. This all will surely lead to intelligent participation of these workers for the social and economic development of the nation.
