Married women can also take care of their parents according to the Bombay High court. A step towards women’s equality. Read to know more.
In a landmark judgement upheld by the Bombay High Court – A married woman too is responsible for maintaining her parents. This is by far the most righteous step towards women’s equality. It is not always about demanding rights, but doing our duties too.
The Bombay High court has said that a married daughter too should share the responsibility of her parents. In a particular case of Vasant vs. Govindrao Upasrao Naik, Criminal Revision Application No. 172/2014, the High Court rejected the pre-conceived notion that a married daughter has obligations only towards her husband’s family and not her own parents.
With this judgement, many age old notions will be broken
Many people still prefer educating boys over girls, as they see them as their providers. This will help break the bias and encourage parents to educate their girls.
It will also help in negating the belief of daughters being ‘Paraya Dhan’ (belonging to somebody else’s family) and thus not taking money from them.
It puts a stand in the society that-if after marriage girl becomes a part of her husband’s family that does not imply she has left her parents’ family.
This judgement encourages women to be financially independent not just for themselves but for their parents too.
With a girl no more being a burden, hopefully the practice of dowry and female infanticide will reduce.
Most importantly, it does away with gender defined roles.
Kudos to this judgement!!

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
