Saw a couple of episodes and the initial promos of the show. Although I believe even a housewife should get respect and they do get that except in some households. The serial is mostly based on a premise that career women don't do a good job of running house... Also in most homes people are not so easy on working women. They actually work in office and come back to work at home... some smart ones make the men roll up theor sleeves and help them, but then that requires manipulation.
Haven't seen any MIL who allows her working bahu to sit easy after coming from office. something tells me that sunaina would have hired a full day maid if Neelam was a career woman too!
However, most of the household jobs that Neelam is made to do are many times over exagerated. Which affluent household makes the women of the house sweep and clean it in India... not a common scene.
