It’s March, women’s month? Sorry, it was just a day. Women’s day! Wasn’t it a normal day? Certainly not, on social media. The day is not a freebie. Neither is respect. What is so good about women that we need to celebrate? Do we really need to?
When a boy is born, we deck him up in blue. But when it’s a girl, it’s all pink. Why? What’s the logic?
Why’s a baby girl’s birthday present a cookery set? While boys get remote controlled cars. Aren’t we teaching our little girls that their place is in the kitchen?
Why are boys always told “Don’t cry like a girl?” Why? Are tears different for a boy and a girl?
Why is it that when a guest comes home, the girl is asked to make tea. The boy might be sitting right there but is never asked. And boys who do so are not acting like “girls”. They are being “boys” whom girls like.
If a girl spreads her legs and sits, a swift remark flies in, “Sit properly. Girls don’t sit like that.” Why? Is it just a man’s right to sit comfortably?
When men wear shorts, it’s cool. When women do so, it’s hot! Why?
Why is a mother’s presence considered bad luck in a son’s marriage?
Why do girls have to be ‘given away’ in marriage? Logic?
We’ve all heard of ‘working moms’. Have you ever heard of ‘working dads’?
Why can’t women do funeral pyre or last rites of parents?
Why do we always say ‘Girls are second to none”? It’s as if we are resigned to the fact that they are second.
Why do girls have to be reminded “We’ve given you enough freedom”?
Unconsciously there at the back of all our minds, isn’t it?
Why do age old traditions always have to be harsh on women? Why does modernizing have to celebrate womanhood and freedom of women? Why does it have to be either of the extremes?
Goddesses or Vamps!
Why can’t things be normal? Uncelebrate. Let them be. It makes them happier.
