Why Don’t Parents Raise Their Boys As Sanskari Human Beings?

The sociologists might be crying and cringing at conferences and seminars about the plight of Indian women, but nothing concrete has been achieved in this direction. The problem lies in the patriarchal society that we live in, where boys are given unfair advantage over girls.

couple Hand Image

Not very long ago, a man was considered to be the bread earner for the family and woman was supposed to look after the children and household chores. Things have changed since then. Today, working woman is a norm and in many families women are earning more than their male counterparts – thanks to the modern economy.

UnFair Treatment

But, Indian society is still unfair towards women. They put all the restrictions and onus of “Sanskars” on the lady that takes over as “Bahu” in her husband’s home. She is often the target of all verbal onslaught that sometimes turns into physical aggression as well.

Regardless, of whether she is working or not, she is supposed to do “Sewa” of her in-laws and husband. Even if she does something with a good intention, it’s often taken wrongly and labeled with Hindi words such as

“ Tez, Chalak and Hoshiyar 

At some places, she needs to take permission of her mother-in-law in virtually everything – even while ordering or doing something for her husband.

Nobody cares if you are hardworking, decent, beautiful, educated, and honest; a woman is a woman after all and she is considered to be a subordinate.

Social issues and discrimination is commonplace in India. In many households, the daughter-in-law isn’t treated like a human being, despite her commitment, love, respect, affection, and sacrifices for her husband and in-laws.

The Painful Account of a Working Professional

Continuous mistreatment and bad behavior completely shatters a sensitive and educated girl. Geeta(Name Change), 29, a working woman in Gurgaon narrates her ordeal. She works as an IT manager in a private company. She got married a year ago to a person, who was not working at the time. Sensing the situation, she often offered financial assistance even when her husband was out buying grocery. To this, her husband often came home shouting and hurling verbal abuses –

“ Ye Paise ka Robe Apne Maa-Baap ko Dikhana 

was his way to defend his ego.

Geeta shared an excellent camaraderie with her wannabe husband before marriage; they exchanged gifts and he treated her like a girl-friend. But everything changed after marriage. Her text messages were termed by her husband as “Rubbish”. Even her best efforts to perform “Sewa” of her mother-in-law in the form of giving her massages were snubbed by the old lady.

She didn’t even get the desired respect as a daughter-in-law. Her husband didn’t pay attention to her and it led her into severe depression. The conversations between Geeta and her husband got sore and he repeatedly used to say that

“ He Didn’t Like Her

He even went to the extent of saying that Geeta’s parents cheated on him.

Unhone Mere Saath kaand kiya Hai

Now can you imagine a person using such language for his sisters, when they get married?

Before marriage husband’s friends or relative asked her –

He is Extremely Shy in Nature”,

But After Marriage They Say –

“He is very Aggressive, Egoistic and Jatt Buddhi”.

Conclusion

While dealing with such situations, everyone advises the women –

Aurat ko Bahut kuch Sehna Padta Hai”,

but nobody says that men also need to be raised to be responsible and well mannered.

“ Sanskars are not meant only for the female gender. No one should be given an unfair advantage because of their gender.

Life Is a Beautiful Book – Don’t Tear It Apart

Life is a beautiful book, all you need is to live it and enjoy it. But, why should there be a difference between life before marriage and life after marriage? It’s a common observation that life is full of romance and future promises before marriage, but trouble starts when couples get married. Most of the men start cheating on their wives – sometimes even leading to physical violence. It leaves you with a wounded soul!

 

Life is a Beautiful Book

 

Watch these videos and feel the emotions associated with such stages and instances in life and how the other person feels when it happens.

A Journey through Different Stages of Life and Videos that Beautifully Explain Them:

1. The best times in the life of an unmarried girl are the ones when she is staying in her parents’ home.  This time is characterized by unconditional love, carefree atmosphere, caring companionship of her family members, her friends and cousins. She needs the same kind of love, when she leaves her family and gets married.

 

 

2. Life is full of beautiful moments, but then sad moments are also a part of it. There are a few instances, when a newly married girl feels that her husband doesn’t love her, but then she is confident that it is a relationship made by God and there is a strong thread of love that binds them together unconditionally.  She hopes that someday things will improve and it pays off.

 

 

3. There are certain moments in life, when your faith wins. A girl falls in love with a boy, who has a bad reputation because of his public image and character. But, the girl is convinced that the boy has some intrinsic goodness in him and that he is the right partner for her. Her faith sees the light of the day, when her phone slips from her hand and gets broken. Desperate boy hurries off to the girl’s house and holds her in his arms – true love – isn’t it?

 

 

4. A girl can go to any extent to keep her relationship safe even if her partner is cheating on her. She knows that her husband has a fling with other women and yet she keeps mum, just to save their relationship, but she breaks down, when he crosses the limit and tries to get physical with her. She narrates how she knows everything about his illicit affairs and yet keeps silence.

 

 

5. Many times, in-laws behave badly with the newlywed girls. It’s extremely hurtful to watch someone behaving badly and being disrespectful toward the newlyweds without any specific reason. Men should take charge in such situations and prevent it from happening.

 

 

6. . When someone dedicates himself or herself completely to a relationship and finds that they are not getting the same commitment and love from the other partner, they are likely to get devastated completely.

 

 

7. Life often brings you to such crossroads, where you are not able to decide what to do. Imagine a boy getting annoyed when he gets to know that his wife is pregnant. The boy doesn’t want the child. It completely shatters the girl and she decides to end her life along with the fetus in her womb. A woman can never trade off, when it comes to the life of her child.

 

8. When a girl is deeply in love with her husband, it will hurt her to no end, if she finds him cheating on her. It’s the moment when she feels completely broken. See how a heartbroken person reacts and decides to walk out of your life forever and says “Mann Bharrya Badal Gaya Saara”.

 

 

So, don’t betray or hurt your life partner because she leaves her whole world behind including her parents and friends so she could be with you.
