The house becomes messier as this young woman has other, more interesting things to do, and she remembers how her badass grandmother would also do the same!
When the house is messed up
I remember you
You also were waiting eternally for the errant maid
Piles of bartans in the kitchen
And clothes lying in the bathroom
But you did not care
Coz who wants to do housework
When the nearby garden beckons
To gossip with friends
When piles of clothes lie in the bathroom
And my lazy fingers cannot
Put on the washing machine
You were always more interested in knowing
About Indira Gandhi
The gold and silver rate
I am like you
I want to check out
Housework can wait

Housework can wait
Are you in heaven sitting with piles of clothes and unwashed bartans
Meeting up Indira Gandhi
She always wore homemade bras
Nothing ready made fitted her
After breast feeding eight children
It was tough to find her size
And she thought
Wasting money on bras
Was not done
She would hoard money
Built secret pockets in her salwar
Just in case there was another partition

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:
