Surrogacy is a wish that fulfils one mother's aspirations to have and raise a baby because of the other woman.
Surrogacy is a wish that fulfils one mother’s aspirations to have and raise a baby because of the other woman.
Though, this process is not easy. Surrogate mothers often face multiple challenges. They are ready to go through the hormonal changes in their body just for the sake of another woman’s wish to become a mother through her.
We can say that surrogacy is also a sacrifice. To simply put, a surrogate mother has to face issues related to heightened emotions, faster ageing, and messed-up diet. Then, it includes regular visitations with the gynaecologists with at least one family member’s support or the support coming from the upcoming child’s future family.
At times, the woman who chooses to become a surrogate mother has to fight against her family for a long time. Most families would not want their daughters or mothers to become a surrogate mother, lending their kid to another woman after the delivery for life.
But the sacrifice that the surrogate mother is ready for shows how one woman can stand in support of another. Even if it is for monetary benefits, surrogacy’s borderline will always be a shoutout to the entire feminist crowd, that we women can and will always support each other.
Thus, both the mothers in the surrogacy share a deeper bond. They are like sisters. At times, even when the surrogate mother wants to be in touch with the child after delivery, the upcoming mother can do so. This only improves the kid’s future life when he or she grows up in a loving environment.
More than that, surrogacy should not be something we fight against. It is a voice and a helping hand of a woman to another. We should always appreciate such a massive sacrifice to bring a ray of hope in another mother’s life.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
