A WOMANS PLACE IS AT HOME
Written for a prompt on project 365 on the opposite point of view to something I feel strongly about
A successful man needs a woman at home to take care of things so that he can concentrate on his work and not worry about petty things like running the home. The lady is the Laxmi of the home, without her, it is total chaos.
The children should come first. They need a mothers care. A father just cannot be of any use. Babysitters don’t take care. Crèches are traumatic for the children. What kind of mother puts career first? A woman is fulfilled as a mother. A mother who is away at work results in damaged children
A woman’s place is in the kitchen. A man cannot be expected to do housework and makes a shoddy job of it. He can’t be expected to come back from work and make his own tea or tidy up or plan dinner. He needs to unwind with a sympathetic wife listening to his day in office and providing intelligent inputs. After all she is educated.
What use of education if she doesn’t help out with the children’s homework? The man cannot be expected to do that after a grueling day in office.
The sari is the most graceful dress for a woman. Trousers are mannish. T-shirts are indecent. Shorts and skirts are shocking. A salwar suit with proper chunni is acceptable but only as casual wear.
Women should not be out late nor attend parties without male escort. Drinking and smoking are sluttish behavior. Objecting to the man’s drinking smoking and partying is shrewish behavior.
A woman progresses in her career by feminine wiles and flirting. She drops her pallu at opportune moments and laughs at improper jokes.
Being out late alone or with a non related male is asking for trouble. Rape doesn’t happen to decent girls from good families.
Well brought up girls from good families know these rules and abide by them. It is these upstarts from broken homes who behave in a contrary fashion
