He takes birth because of a woman, shares his deepest thoughts with a woman, falls in love and marries one. Despite the fact that a woman is needed everywhere and at every point of time, we still at times tend to belittle and trivialise her contribution in our lives.

Lets read it again. When a woman gives birth to a baby boy, the first thing, which is taught to him is ‘don’t cry like a girl’ and ‘real men don’t cry.’ Who knows the amount of pain a woman goes through when she delivers a baby? Or, the changes her body has to undergo just to feed her child? Do some people really care? Unfortunately, we are still surrounded by some people with patriarchal mind-set. We still blame the woman for getting raped, molested or sexually assaulted. Is it all in the way she dresses up or greets you? Is that a signal that she’s ‘ready’? This might come across as a usual rant for some but the dark reality can’t be ignored.
