GROWING AS AN INDIAN GIRL!
India is a country of conveniences. Indian society works according to the convenience of the people ruling the society. And so, as per their convenience, a girl can be made goddess laxmi anytime, and the next moment, a permanent maid for their house.
No matter how much we brush our minds and try to think broad, some stereotyped beliefs are really unavoidable.
For example, among so many siblings, why only a girl is expected to pick all the tea cups? Why is a girl supposed to talk softly? Why do you call your daughter to mop the floor whenever you spill your coffee? Why is a girl judged over the cooking skills she has? Why is your sister not allowed to wear a skirt? Why do you tell her to maintain her figure?
Let her scream, she may be hurt.
Let her shout, she may be angry.
Let her laugh, she may be happy.
Let her eat, she may be hungry.
Let her wear what she wants, she may be comfortable.
Let her live, she is a human.
She has emotions. Don’t try to stop her emotions in the name of gender. She is a human first. She can scream her lungs out. She can dance until her bones break. She has a heart like every boy.
