Save the male, it is his day!

BANGALORE: Men, here’s an occasion to celebrate — you have a day for yourself, just like women do!

Not many — including men — know, but November 19 is celebrated as International Men’s Day. And the theme for this year is `Men are Emotional Beings’. “Indian men face a lot of problems, but these are not taken seriously by the government or anyone else. There are no men’s organizations in India by the government or by any NGO. But there are many organisations for women and children, focusing on their problems and issues,” said Virag Dhulia, India liaison officer, National Coalition For Men (NCFM), on Friday.

As per suicide statistics provided by the National Crime Records BureauNCRB), every year more than 57,000 married men are ending their lives, compared to 30,000 married women, he said.

Realizing that awareness is the key to the solution of men’s problems, NCFM, Bangalore, is organizing `Save the Male’ at Forum Value Mall at Whitefield on November 19, from 4pm to 8pm.
