‘What Does It Mean to be a Woman Today to You’
About 30 years ago, when the serial Mahabharata was all the rage and everyone gathered around the TV on Sunday mornings, my mother would get excited too. She would have everything ready and be set to watch it when my father would appear and announce ‘ Im ready to eat’. She would depart very sadly to make breakfast for him. She couldn’t even say ‘ Why don’t you eat before or after?’ Her needs were never considered important enough.
Now I can say that to my husband. And as for my daughter, my heart stops when she says to her husband on the phone ‘ Hey loose’.
The balances in marriages are changing . There is more equality, friendship and intimacy vs the respect for age. And all for the better.
That was the way I began and somehow this seems to have touched the hearts of many women there. Many of them came up to me and said rather bitterly, ‘ It ‘s still the same. I have to drop everything when my husband wants to eat’.
I had a good feeling about myself later. Good with the long talk but still short on the Small talk :-)
