It isn’t that easy to be a girl in India. You have to deal with quite judgemental society every day that reminds you the measure of your freedom as set by them. There are constant discussions on body shaming, racism for the color of your skin and what not. These incidents are a part of our day to day life even after which girls are proving their potential in every possible field and it’s high time our surroundings strictly needs to forbid using such statements. Here are some of them-
1. Beta, shaadi ke baad khana banana aana chahiy.
So you better learn to start cooking. Coz you’re born to serve food to you in-laws and a girl who doesn’t know how to cook is never referred as sansakari bahu. Got that!!
2. You Must Not Go Out When It’s Dark
The reason is your personal security that is in danger coz of the sinful and brutal animals roaming at that point of time in the form of human.
3. You Must Not Do_____ When You’re On Your Periods!!
Do not touch the jar of pickles or you better not pray or visit a temple when you’re on periods, coz hello, its 20th century and we still think a woman on period is IMPURE.
4. A Girl Should Never Smoke Or Drink
No such conditions applied if you’re a boy. For that instance, you can consider sex change operation to enjoy a drink with your friends.
Note: We don’t promote smoking and drinking.
5. Beta,Shaadi Ki Umar Nikali Ja Rahi Hai.
- 23- Marriage
- 24- First Child
- 26- Mother of two
Ready, Set, Go!!
6. You Better Get In Shape Else No One Will Marry You
Start gymming otherwise, the boy we choose for you can reject you because of your weight. Who cares if you’re intelligent.
7. Beta, Nimbu Lgaya Karo Gore Ho Jaoge
Shade card is the measure of your talent. Welcome to India!!
8. She Has So Many Male Friends, She Must Be Characterless
You’ll never hear this directly, but subconsciously this lies in the some of the genius minds we have.
9. Beta, Rishtedaaro Ke Saamne Salwar Suit Pehenkar Kar Aana
Wearing western clothes in front of your relatives is a total no-no as they will judge you on the length of your clothes.
10. Agla Number Tumhara
We were not even the part of any queue. Marriage is the most interesting aspect of Indian families, no doubt.
These judgments, remarks and weird piece of advice needs to be stopped. We girls are much more than what they think we are, and it’s time to change how they think.
