Contemporary women are transforming. They are becoming doctor Engineers, police officers like their counterparts, and in several fields, they are excelling as well. Now no more, they want to be called by their husband’s name. They want their own existence into society, Unquestionably, they are earning and making money. Since they are financially independent, usually they do not care about anything. To establish their existence in society, they are struggling with their counterparts. 21st-century women are different in many ways.
But sorry to say when it comes to delivering their duty towards their parents, they fall behind. They look for the excuse to get an exemption from their duty as the primal ladies used to do. I am also a lady, and I firmly believe that this responsibility should be shared equally between the son and daughter.
After marriage, girls want to pay a visit to their mother’s place frequently. It is not only because they love their parents but also because they get their comfort, liberty, and exemption from their duty, which they do not get at their in-law’s place. Although it is a bitter truth that these girls are escapist, they want exemption from their duties. Why do they not visit when they are not well and take care of them? Why do they not pay a visit with them with this thinking that this time they will not let their mom do any domestic work? Girls should be honest in delivering their duties toward their parents as well, even if they pay a visit to them for an hour.
These women do not lag in accepting the expensive gifts from their parents. Even if they have hardly any source of income, they do not refuse gifts. I do not get what sort of pleasure do they get to demonstrate the world how much gifts their parents give her to bring a big hole into their pocket. Why do they not feel shame while accepting or demanding for the contributions? They do not realize, but they are equally accountable for their exploitation in the hand of their husbands and in-laws. I was shell shocked when I saw one of my friends bought a dress from her husband theft money and declared at her home that her mother had gifted her.
A mother was not going well for a few days. She was at the rent house on the walking distance from her motherhouse. She had taken the house near her mother so that she could approach them whenever she needs them, not because they need her. As soon as she came to know she was not going well, she gave a call to her brother to look after the mother who was working in the other city. She reduced to visit her mother also with this excuse that her mother in law had ceased her. While the fact is different, her mother in law was entirely unaware of the gross stuff. She did not bother to tell her mother in law that she visited her mother.
A girl should also well aware of the poor financial condition of her parents. She knew it that somehow, her father had managed money for the marriage. She could think sensibly and buy some economical bridal lehenga rather than an expensive one. But she did not care about anyone and bought an expensive one. Not only this, she used to ask her fiancé to demand this and that whenever she had a word with him.
I do firmly believe the parents bringing up is accountable for the weird and emotionless behavior of the girls at most. They have not been brought up with this feeling that it is their equal responsibility to take care of your parents when they grow old. And they also belong to their parents as their son. Both of them should share responsibilities as a duty. Equal Share of the property among the children without discriminating the gender can be the solution, to some extent.
