“Where Are My Grandbabies?”

I find it strange that a couple who raised their daughter under close watch & scrutinized her every move and never let her be friends with guys, let alone allow her to have a boyfriend, and ensuring that she went from home to school/college and straight back home and have almost a nil social life, is now upset that almost a year has passed since the daughter got married but she hasn’t become pregnant yet!

Maybe if you just let her have some practice she might know what to do :P

Some Indian parents treat their daughters mostly like “garba pathrams” (wombs) for their grand children to be conceived in! LIke her only purpose in life is to get married to the guy that they find for her, a perfect stranger, then get into bed with said perfect stranger and start making babies for her parents to play with.

“Hey, I just met you and call me crazy / but here’s my daughter / fuck her and start making babies” – ditty of those Indian parents!

Unequal Terms

Did you know today is Blog Action Day? Join bloggers from around the world and write a post about what inequality means to you. Have you ever encountered it in your daily life?

Inequality is being pushed to the side while someone else passes because you are deemed to be of lesser value. It’s being seen as inferior or different because you have different ideas or do not follow the norm. Or that you do not have the same set of beliefs as the majority does. It’s having to defend personal & private things to total strangers who flaunt their authority, even if you are doing no harm to anyone or anything – except perhaps their ego and bursting their bubble.

Inequality is also having to do more than someone else just to prove that you are as good, even if your work is as good or even better than others, because you look, dress, talk differently. Or having to constantly be compared and criticized for being different on things that you have no control over or have made a particular choice / stance about. Especially when it is none of their business but they happen to have an opposing view and also happen to be your superior in the office or institute or have more influence than you.

Inequality is when you always end up in the loser’s column and it’s because the odds are stacked up against you.
