Hey guys, how are you all,
Very nice poem.
Seeing women as someone who ALWAYS live for others and Never for Themselves enrages me to the core.
It is horrible as to how women through eons have been treated by the societies they live in and most importantly how they are treated by their own Families!
A person has no one to turn to other that their family members, but those whom we turn to are themselves giving their support to someone else, what are you supposed to do.
Before living up to the society, it is inportant to live up to yourself and that cannot be accomplished unless you earn signity and self-respect for yourself. There is nothing wrong with forming pillars for yourself with your own effort and the new generation's women are putting their carrer as a foremost priority.
Let me know what you guys think,

As teenager, I would have agreed with you statements. As a married woman with a child, I beg to differ. I would say life can be different but the responsibilty lies with us as women to define our roles.
Before I had my daughter, I worked in Risk Management and made more money than my husband. I do not think my Husband is less intelligent than I nor does he get threatened by my earning potential. A year after my daughter was born I choose to stay at home with her. I could have hired a nanny and continued to work but I was not satisfied with the way another person was raising my child.
I have been a housewife for 3 years. I still make every descision when it comes to finance (purchasing a home, car, retirement planning)in my household my husband and I may discuss issues. But ususally the actuall descision comes down to my yes or no. But I am lucky because my husband considers my intelligence a sign of our strength as a couple. He once said to me since I know you take care of all the finance matters I can concentrate on income. He thinks of us as a power couple.
I think we as mothers, sisters, and daughters need to encourage the idea that smart woman in is not liablity but is a strength. If we stop buying the image of a traditional homemaker as an ideal woman than it will stop selling. If we tell our brothers and son to marry women who can add good family values and but also miake sound financial desicisions life will be easier for them also. It takes time but it is possible.
In fact, I married into a well off traditional joint family and both my sasur and chacha sasur will ask for my advice on the stock market and they always try to encourage me to go to work or study. Both of their wives are very homely. And no my mother in law does not give me a hard time. She is very understanding. Just my two cents.
