THE LIFE OF A INDIAN WOMAN

Women play a prime role in everyone’s life. Either a men or a women’s life, it always has something to do with a woman. The life of a successful woman involves a man and, the life of a successful man includes a woman. It is always one way or another. Let’s talk about the life of a woman in India.

Women in India are said to be dependable on a man. That is, a daughter has to depend on her father till she gets married. Then she has to rely on her husband by being his support. At last, if she has a son, then she has to rely on his son for her needs. Everyone can think this is some old story that is not happening everywhere. Yes, it is not the case in all places, but it’s just our misconception.

Yes, We all think independent women are still there even after their marriage. But think about reality, in a relationship, either one has to sacrifice for their happiness and, in most cases, a woman is doing it. Yes, even an independent woman sacrifices something at some point for their family’s happiness. In some cases, men did it. But when it comes to the majority, it’s always women.

So, the majority of the women are sacrificing something they need for their family(including parents, brother, husband, and children). I’m not bragging about it, but all I need to ask is, ‘Is a women’s sacrifice worth those?’ or ‘Why a woman always does it willingly?’. There’s no answer for those questions when asked to a woman in India. It’s not like they are not able to answer, it’s just, they are tired of explaining things to this Indian society.

Most of the girls in India are taught to serve a man from the start of their life. And a boy is not taught to do his chores. And unfortunately, it’s not because of a man it’s because of a woman who believes the old myth she was told by. In India, “Woman has to be like gold, She has to melt herself to fit in the form the society expects, her value is high, but her voice is not respected”. 

But, we women believe everything changes in the future with our broad mindset!
