The Adult All-in-one Provider Person (APP)


     In the twenty-first century there is going to
be a trend towards single-child families.

     A mother will restrict to one single child to
bear and bring up. A father will realize that
this is the best thing to do viz. restrict to one
single child to bear and bring up in his life
time. This single child will have to provide all
the life qualities that are available in the world
for itself as well as to people with whom it will
have relations, like the parents, cousins,
in-laws etc. regardless whether it is a boy or a
girl. The society will have to prepare the
single child in the family and society to play its
roles and function as an all-in-one provider
person (APP). The functions of the
reproductive objectives will have to continue
without compromising on the role of the
provider person. The mothers will have to
stop treating their girl child in the same
manner as their mothers did to them when
they were growing up.

   How will a mother who has grown up in a
male dominated world know how to bring up
her girl child in the new family order? How will
she gear up to the mighty task of negating the
traditions and age-old practices of bringing up
girl children to play the role exclusively as a
woman?  The mother will have to work
constantly towards this objective and this goal
by making suitable changes in her thinking
and practice of the methods and manners of
rearing the girl child into an adult all-in-one
provider person (APP). It is not right to think
of this APP girl child as a replacement for a
boy in the family. We do not want a girl-child
to grow like a boy child. We only want a girl
child to do all tasks that are required of a
single-child in any family. Then, she has to
function also as a woman, wife, and mother to
fulfill her role as a woman member of the

A single girl child need not lose her grace of a
woman, nor her properties that fulfill her role
as a female partner in courtship, romance and
as a prospective bride. When she gets
married she should not lose her membership
and her obligations in her parents' household.

  This change in the culture of parents in a
single-child family is a necessity as well as
the preferred way to stabilize the society for
development and progress in the new world
older. This new culture has already begun to
take foothold in our society across the
country. A jean-clad teen-ager is an example
of this new culture.  A working mother is
another example of this culture if she happens
to have one single girl child and if she is
bringing her up as an APP girl child.

  It is the objective of all parents to try to bring
up and educate their child to take up one
occupation, vocation or profession to lead a
good life. An agriculturist wishes that his child
take up agriculture as its future occupation. A
shopkeeper wishes his child to become a
shopkeeper. A musician would like his child to
become a musician.

 This is because it is easy for a child to take
up the family business and profession since
the child will be constantly in touch with the
nuances of running such a business or
profession of its father/mother.

  It is the goal of every person to maintain
good health and acquire wealth. Every
profession, vocation or occupation has the
potential to keep a person healthy and
wealthy. Every person can play the role of a
good citizen by taking up any avocation in the
person's life.

 How do we judge a person for his status in
life? The status of a labourer should be equal
to the status of an industrialist as far as their
roles as a citizen. Like every citizen has equal
right to vote so should he or she have a
respectable and equal status in the society
regardless of their profession or business. A
person is judged by his health and wealth and
not only by his profession or business, or
occupation. If this can happen then people
will not hanker solely to become a doctor or a
highly qualified officer in the government.

   It should be possible for a lady doctor to
marry a man who is an agriculturist by
profession or vice versa if they so chose.

   Every citizen has a right to maintain good
health and acquire ample wealth by his own
efforts and lawful means.
   In the Gowda Saraswath Brahmin (GSB)
society we all have a goal to contribute to the
general development and growth of the
country apart from our own goal to progress in
life through our culture and traditions. It will
become imperative that we adopt ourselves to
the new family order.

   It is the trend now to have a single child
family among us GSBs. Then it is necessary
to bring up our child as an APP and prepare
the child to take up a suitable profession,
vocation or business of its choice to lead a
good life as a citizen of the country. The role
of our mothers becomes important to achieve
this goal.

   The GSB mothers of the twenty-first century
will have to bring up their children to become
an APP so that there is fullness in the lives in
the GSB community in the coming decades.

   Physiologically women are not equal to
men. Psychologically too they are different.
Both men and women behave differently in life
in many ways.

   There is not much difference between
women and men in the usual activities like
eating, drinking, working, sleeping, resting and
speaking. But women have physical and
physiological differences based on their
functions like child-bearing and child-rearing.
The genital organs of men and women are
structured based on their functions in
reproductive objectives.

   No one can dispute the fact that women and
men react differently when it comes to taking
care of their children. On the other hand the
behaviour of people of either sex depends
upon how she or he is brought up.

   Both woman and man do what they have
learnt during their upbringing as far as their
reactions to various situations in their life. If a
physiological male baby is brought up as a
female baby right from the time of birth, then
he might dress like a woman, think like a
woman and talk like a woman. He might work
like a woman and develop all qualities of a
woman except that he will realize by the age of
14 or 15 or even earlier that he can not bear
children. He will compare himself with the
other people around him. He will compare his
body with the body of his companions.
Therefore it is not possible to equate women
with men in all spheres of life.
   However, traditions do not die easily.
The world has treated women differently in
terms of her rights and dues as compared to
the men. Men have dominated the world and
put the women in a separate perspective.

   If a woman is taught the semantics of
dominating over men then it is possible for her
to reverse the trends and traditions. Women
only have to assert their abilities to perform all
functions required of a dominant section of a
society. Therefore it depends upon the
methods and manners of upbringing and
learning process for women to shed their
traditional profiles. This is possible if each
household takes up this task of bringing up
each girl child in exactly the same way as a
boy child.                 
   Since as I said before, there is no difference
between a man and a woman in the usual
activities like eating, drinking, working,
sleeping, resting, speaking etc.. If a girl child is
made to dress like a boy, work like a boy, talk
like a boy and grow like a boy in each
household then it is possible for a mother and
a father to see their girl child grow to be
as good or better than a boy child. It will not
make any difference for the parents if their
offspring is male or female, if each is brought
up similarly as he or she grows up
disregarding its gender.
