Hi Nidhi !
Being from a researcher group we have found that the female harmones are more into feelings andprone to bond as compared to males who are having harmones which are more suited to strong and harsh tasks making them suitable to take responsibilities and the tasks requiring strength.
Please study the harmones testosterone and female harmone called as estrogen.
Both the genders have these harmones and thus they deserve to be treated equally.
But don't you think there can be reasons behind conditioning parents for such a behaviour?
Parents know that a strong female would disturb her harmones and turn them to be more like males and people might start calling her a tom boy or so.
Similar terms are given to males if they start showing girlish behaviour .
Like a blushing boy or so.
Would yo u like to distort your harmones or be proud of Indian traditions which bring out the beauty of not just one but both the harmone.
One best suited to be strong and the other best suited to be soft and sweet in nature and keep a balanc ein family but I personally do not believe by any means that a female can be behind by abiding by such restrictions or guidance. Because being strong sometimes can be called as harsh and being sweet is always called a being polite and /or good natured which is the requirement ofr whole of the world and all living beings like to be treated sweetly and softly.
Don't you believe the world runs due to softness and sweetness and the parents just try their best to just nurture that knowingly or unknowingly !
If you want to absorb my point better please view the movie Showlin Soccer where in the goalee girl does what the strong martial arts man as goal keeper could not do ad face. Just by being soft, sweet and calm.
Maybe I'm not understanding well enough what you mean but I'm thinking you're trying to say it is good that women are shown as more vulnerable than men because it is necessary that one of the sexes should be softer to allow for harmony.
I understand completely the whole thing about hormones and all but what does that really have to do with who we are? Is it bad to be a tomboy or for a girl to play sports? Is it bad if a boy is sweet instead of "macho"? Are these gender roles so imbedded into our society that we cannot overcome them? And, by keeping these gender roles in play, have we stopped accepted those that fall differently? I mean gays and lesbians are not as universally accepted because gay men are seen as very feminine and gay women are seen in a masculine light. Even if a man or woman is not gay, if they display some characteristics of the opposite sex, they are immediately taken to be so.
I know we are not discussing gay rights, but if we are talking about diyva, would it make her seem manly if her mother let her to the late night party because she would be strong and defending herself? I don't think women or men should be characterized with silly tags but accepted as who they are and treating them all the same. Of course, some things do set males and females apart but being strong is NOT strictly a male thing.
Maybe my view is a little harsh as I have always been treated like a girl who does the dishes and cleans the house and never seen as a person but this is why I feel we need a change and if shows like Krishna ben show the opposite. then society will regress even more.
