A woman should “be” beautiful or “look” beautiful?!
And how to “look” beautiful?! Look slim, fair and delicate!!
She may use her brains but not more than men! Otherwise she may never use’em! That too is fine!
Who created a trimly measured half-naked image of woman’s beauty?! Who invited her natural instinct to be beautiful?!! Who measured her in terms of her physical beauty, refusing to see her beautiful mind and a beautiful heart capable of so much love….
“Aunty” if she wraps a saree and over-smart if roams around wearing shorts!!
A woman can be criticized for the way she dresses…in any way possible! It is her dressing that is responsible for evoking the beast in men!!
“Promise me that a girl dressed in a punjabi suit, covered in scarf sitting squinched in a corner will not be stared at or touched by any man ever! And then I will listen to any sermons you give about the dress code!”
If ever a girl dare rebel like that…
“We only suggest a conservative dress code to ensure your safety. You may dress as you wish… but then you are to be held responsible if anything happens to you.”
So if woman claims freedom, she has to be responsible for her own safety…. It will not be a social concern anymore!
Of course this is a very small part of a very huge suppression. Where a girl is refused the right to be born, refused to lead her own choice of life, how to expect small things such as right to dress?!
Women are often not aware that their life is being controlled, that they could be happier otherwise! They haven’t had an opportunity to think that straight!!
Often women are seen snatching their rights in modern society. “World comes to your feet if you look good” that’s the advertisement they’ve watched through every commercial media. They are adopting modern attire but not modern thinking!
There are exceptions…. Women leading a respectable, socially useful and free, proud life…setting an excellent example of living humane! They spend an unglamorous, anonymous life! Right here around us….those beauty queens are so unappreciated by us!!
But the major part of woman population is racing for a shallow life…carrying bruises of that inhuman contest on their hearts….smiling bravely…..dying every day…
could there be a satire of humanity worse that this?!
