I’ll just translate the quote here and not add my opinions as I want to know about opinions of my reader friends coming from diverse backgrounds.
It says that Indian men are still habitual of seeing women doing only the household tasks or just as housewives. They like to talk to intelligent women and be with them but not in the material relationship. They have not yet learnt to respect empowered women.
Says Amrita Preetam
Now I just wanna ask some questions and want you to think over them honestly (even if you don’t reply here please try reply to yourself) because they are very simple unless we take them on ourselves and we have to respond personally… It is not necessary that every man does this or all of this kind of things but observation of society and some readings gave me impression that many of them do something or the other of this short and especially in India.
*Is is really necessary that women will only do the household and men will only do outside work?
*Why a man likes to catch a wild cat and if he does so it’s okay but then why tries to make her a pat?
*Are they fearing from her financial freedom and decision making power? If yes! then are they actually doing justice with their wives by suppressing their rights?
*How will you feel if you are independent and one day suddenly you are asked to keep mum, not to go for work, no decision making, no asking questions and have to beg before your wife to help you with some money for a genuine cause and she asks you thousands of questions before that?
*How you feel if you are trying to discuss something with your wife but she is just busy with mobile or outer world and you keep waiting for her, she laughs with everyone and when you talk she shouts? You feel bad right?? Then why this behavior you do with your wives ¿?
