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 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

   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
   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.
