Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Poem: Patriarchy — I am sure, her, him or they, if you read this, you have come across men who think their highest achievement is being born a man.
I am sure, her, him or they, if you read this, you have come across men who think their highest achievement is being born a man
They may have a far lesser understanding of life but always pretend that they are tapped into the universal plan
And of course they don’t see women as a fellow human but someone to lord over
Their upbringing left no scope for learning, and they bring their own bar down lower and lower
Men who feel the need to be right, always weather with their daughter or son
Who like to have the last word or else all hell breaks loose with abuse and the fallacy of their being comes undone
As they age, they become these egomaniacs whose energy can fill up a very large space
Their show of this faulty power is an absolute disgrace
These powerful men, mind you, are also super dependent
There isn’t a single task they can complete in independence
But will have an opinion on how things should function around
If being a man was a job, they would have been fired or clowned
Humanity is the primary requirement of being a mammal called human
Such men and the women who are enablers of them are the reason of chaos and confusion
Being raised by two imperfect people so steely and strong, as a human and not just a woman
The least I can do is raise my little one the same, who will question everything inhuman.
I may sound a simpleton trying to be poetic of a problem so dread
But if my simplicity takes me to my humanity, I would rather be simple instead.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Ms. Kulkarni, please don’t apologise ‘IF’ you think you hurt women. Apologise because you got your facts wrong. Apologise for making sexual harassment a casual joke.
If Sonali Kulkarni’s speech on most modern Indian women being lazy left me shocked and enraged, her apology post left me deeply saddened.
I’d shared my thoughts on her problematic speech in an earlier article. So, I’ll share why I felt Kulkarni’s apology post was more damaging than her speech.
If her speech made her an overnight hero among MRAs, sexists, and people who were awed by her dramatic words, then her apology post made her a legendary saint.
