Ever been annoyed by women who moral police other women? This poem is for you!
Good morning, how do you do?
Had breakfast, did you?
And at breakfast when your daughter ate cheese
You said, “You’ll grow fat, stop it please!”
Let her eat what she likes
And stop expecting her to impress guys.
Period blood is not gross
It doesn’t add to your list of my flaws
During periods, I’ll run, sit, eat and pray
Your comments won’t change me anyway.
I didn’t learn to cook and bake
No, that’s not my mom’s mistake
She told me to study and do something good
Apart from cooking my in-laws’ favourite food
You saw me with a guy,
You make a fuss, I don’t know why
He was only a friend, I am not in love,
If that’s also a problem, tell me how.
I can’t give your family a son
It’s nature’s choice and can be changed by none
Motherhood is not your card game
Children of any gender should be loved the same
Thanks for the suggestions that I’ll ignore
Find yourself a better chore
Let me live the life I choose
I’ve got no time for baseless rules.

While marriage brings with it its own set of responsibilities for both partners, it is often the woman who needs to so all the adjustments.
For a 25-year-old women — who tied the knot in March-2014 — the love come arranged marriage brought with it a new city, and also the “responsibility of managing household chores“.
Prior to her marriage, she learned to cook after marriage as her husband “doesn’t cook”.
“I struggled and my husband used to tell me that it would turn out better the next time. Now, I am much a better cook,” said the mother to a three-and-a-half-month-old, who chose to work from home after marriage.
Jaane Jaan is a great standalone flick, but a lot of it could have been handled better, and from the POV of the main character.
Jaane Jaan is a thriller streaming on Netflix and is adapted from Keigo Higashino’s book, ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’. I found the film to be riveting, with a nail-biting build-up. However, in my personal opinion, the climax and the treatment of the female lead was a letdown.
Disclaimer: I haven’t read the book yet, and I am not sure how true the adaptation has stayed to the source material.
(SPOILERS AHEAD. Please read after you watch the movie if you are planning to)
