When we talk of patriarchy it’s almost implied
It has only affected women worldwide
The really short end of the stick they’ve received
While men do as they please, so is perceived
Now let me frame this in a different way
It might be controversial, what I have to say
I think men are victims, equally
At the hands of a patriarchal society
Taught to behave a certain way from an early age
Bottling up emotions that turns into rage
Buried under the weight of societal expectations
Trying to project strength during stressful situations….
Toxic masculinity results when patriarchy prevails
Oppression of women increases, the social structure fails
To preserve the balance it was supposed to maintain
Neither women nor men unaffected remain..
No one benefits from gender hegemony
Imbalance of power is the worst enemy
Equality, not just feminism, is the need of the hour
Equal recognition, equal expectations, equal power…

Immediately the junior official exclaimed, “You can’t fill up your mother’s name as a dependent!”
Drama has always been something that has attracted the people of India. And what if that drama helps you to make a living? You definitely serve it fresh, every night, with a pinch of exaggerated misogyny.
Drama has always been something that has attracted and even sometimes united the people of India. And what if that drama helps you to make a living? You definitely serve it fresh, every night, with a pinch of exaggerated misogyny.
The Great “INDIAN SERIALS” are food to the alarmingly disturbing WhatsApp forwards, sexist jokes and groundless beliefs. With many shows completing more than a thousand episodes, the extent of the effect of this drug overdose can rarely be comprehended in our human minds.
The characteristics that make them nothing more than a huge trash can are quite specific to them, and thereby necessary to determine.
