Why can't these men find jobs to support themselves and their families?

cause its not the cultural norm. why do you think one of the uncle wants a baby girl SO BAD? because she will be the money maker of the house, the men dont work for the most part. 

and its not to say these uncles are evil , its just not how things are done over there. yes they are selfish to send their sister to dance when shes so sick and to get predictions for babys gender instead of medicine, but they are selfish. 

remember vikran offering sugnis friend a job as a driver? how he was shocked? and then vikram told him off by saying you want others (as in woman) to bring home the money,  you dont have the will to earn for your own?

vikram is apart of the culture and not apart of it at the same time. he actually has the village pegged out. he doesnt judge nor does he indulge. he knows certain people have been a certain way for centuries and one person or one city dweller cannot change that. he also knows that there are women who want a better life for themselves than what thier mothers had. and he respects that, unlike others who dont understand or look down upon it.

in there way of life the women are a source of income and they do that by doing rai and offering themselves to the thakurs. The men in bedni society do the housework and live off of the women income. 

in a way its reverse role of gender in bedni society but in backward way. the men do have some land and they can do farming but they chose not to because of the fact that women earn the income. so it's kind of sad irony that women go through such a fate to support their family.

Because in the bedia tribe they are not raised to do so.  It is the women that support the family financially.

All I can say is that it is unfortunate that grown men have to send their women folks to prostitute themselves in order to provide alchol and chicken for the men. It is just distusting even if it is their custom.

Why can't they at least open up a little parlour or small shop like other men in the village? I think these 2 are a bit lazy despite their culture of letting the women work.
