I Don’t Know How to Drape a Saree. But I am Neither Proud nor Ashamed.

Shaming a person is no way of encouraging him/her to embrace a particular belief or culture. If you can’t praise and admire someone, then please don’t condemn them so much so that they lose all respect for you and forget all the good work you have done for ages. Finally, I don’t know how to wear a saree. I am definitely not proud of the fact but I am not ashamed even.

She parted from her son to raise her daughters.

Anjali was wise enough to make the best use of all the waste and gave a new look to the entire house without a penny of investment. Her neighbors always praised her for managing the household expenses so well and hence, leading a comfortable lifestyle. Anjali was contented with whatever little they had but she always aspired to give the best to her children. A year down the line, people had already started blessing her –“May god grant you a beautiful son.” and god heard them.

Not just men but women too establish patriarchy

Our ancestors endured patriarchy and hence even we are expected to follow their footsteps. According to me, that granny is responsible for patriarchy who only wants a grandson as her vanshaj. That mother is responsible who keeps giving birth to girls till she is blessed with a boy. That amma is responsible who keeps reiterating the importance of a son and how parents should invest in a son because he would be their life cover in old age.
