Jugjugg Jeeyo highlights that not only as mothers or daughters but as women too, we need to uplift each other, to encourage each other, to empower each other...
Dear Geeta and Naina,
Your mother-in-law and daughter-in-law duo has brought out a vital message and a hidden aspect of our Indian social setup – something that was unique and surprising in the storyline of this movie.
In this world of patriarchy, where we see our women bowing down to romance and it’s responsibilities, thank you for highlighting that not only as mothers or daughters but as women too we need to come up, to uplift each other, to encourage each other, to empower each other, to protect each other from every instance of abuse, disrespect and insult.
The support given by just being there for each other sometimes takes over the entire state of affairs. We indeed deserved to be cared for and loved.
Even when our men choose to be disloyal, instead of shielding or ignoring them, we have to be firm to not only put them in their places but teach them to be grateful for what they are blessed with in life.
Geeta, thank you for coming out stronger even when the addiction of your relationship was hard to quit. It was indeed tough to choose your heart but that distinguished you in every form.
Even if alone, you were brave enough to survive without having the fear of being judged by the society and that makes your mere presence beautiful. You giving an open choice to your daughter-in-law to exit a relationship or to give it a chance was how we want this world to run. Your overwhelming love and care conquered the show.
Naina, gratitude for always being with your mother-in-law, come what may. You just redefined the rules of this relationship for audiences to learn from. Your top notch business woman attitude makes you brave enough to conquer every hurdle and that’s how you empower each woman who watched you on the big screen.
Thank you for staying true to your word and appreciating your achievements even when no one else did, you were your greatest cheerleader. Your choosing your career over the need to make a baby made you no less of a woman. There was more to you than just being a mother.
You have both set an example for women to watch and learn from.
From a Naina aspiring to have a mother-in-law like Geeta.

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.

Even after writing eleven books and winning several prestigious awards, Maya Angelou doubted that she had earned her accomplishments. Albert Einstein also described himself as an involuntary swindler whose work did not deserve the attention it had received.
Feeling inadequate, unworthy, and undeserving of success, along with the fear of being exposed as a fraud, is called the imposter syndrome.
