If a marriage is between a man and a woman, why does only she have to choose between her marriage and career? Why does she need permission for it?
Everyone wants an educated, well behaved girl for marriage but no one wants to let women work after marriage. They are all bothered by her cooking skills. No matter what heights she may reach, or what she can achieve, what matters is if she wears a mangalsutra or puts vermillion or not.
Somehow, she is considered ‘lucky’ if she is allowed to pursue her career and follow her dreams by her husband and in laws. Seriously, she needs permission to follow her own dreams?
Will a boy take permission before he does something? In fact, he would barely even be bothered to inform even after he’s done it. On the other hand, the girl needs to get permission to do every little thing.
Her life is her own only until she’s married, after that, it becomes that of her husband and in laws. And once her child is born, it is almost impossible her for her to even think of her own life or of doing something for herself.
This dilemma is only faced by the women, but not men. If a marriage is between both of them why does only the woman have to choose between her career and marriage? Why does she need permission to go back to work or studies once she’s married? And if she’s allowed why is she considered lucky?
Women are capable of doing things that men can’t even imagine. They can manage their homes and offices very well. Don’t cage women in that gold cage of marriage where everything is served on golden and silver platters but costs her an entire life and freedom!

People have relationships without marriages. People cheat. People break up all the time. Just because two people followed some rituals does not make them more adept at tolerating each other for life.
Why is that our society defines a woman’s success by her marital status? Is it an achievement to get married or remain married? Is it anybody’s business? Are people’s lives so hollow that they need someone’s broken marriage to feel good about themselves?
A couple of months ago, I came across an article titled, “Shweta Tiwari married for the third time.” When I read through it, the article went on to clarify that the picture making news was one her one of her shows, in which she is all set to marry her co-star. She is not getting married in real life.
Fair enough. But why did the publication use such a clickbait title that was so misleading? I guess the thought of a woman marrying thrice made an exciting news for them and their potential readers who might click through.
Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
