While this video showing a mom who was tough on her child and faces flak from the family has gone viral for its tough mom message, what are the other messages that it is sending out?
This recent video promoting All Out mosquito repellent has reached lakhs of people and has apparently been liked and shared by around 2 lakh people till now (around 11.30 pm last night when I posted this on my Facebook page) but for me it’s wrong on so many counts. Even though the creative visualizers and the director wished to convey a good message, they managed to convey and affirm only the prevalent sexism and patriarchy.
One good intention doesn’t justify the propagation of so many wrongs through the same video. Here is a quick list:
How I wish the creators of this advertisement had better sense! In fact, it should actually be reported to the advertising standards council for being derogatory towards women.

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
