Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
Support from a wife is highly under-appreciated and underrated, and given our patriarchal setup husband appreciating the wife is a matter of ridicule or criticism.
My husband is a very calm and sorted person who has always been respectful towards me in the 20 years of our married life. I have always heard the remark, “You have a great married life since your husband is so calm and nice.”
Rarely have I heard, including in my own family, that our marriage is successful because I am equally good. It’s as if its taken for granted that the wife should be good and needs no appreciation.
If my husband is worth appreciation, so am I..
When cricketer Virat Kohli has had bad days on field, both before and after his marriage, trolls would directly put the blame on his partner Anushka Sharma! Why just that..haven’t we seen that anything bad happens in a family post marriage, the daughter-in-law is labeled as “panauti” or bad omen?! On the other hand, when Virat Kohli scores well or is in great form no one appreciates Anushka. When something good happens in a family, no one would give credit to the daughter-in-law for that!
It’s good to see Virat Kohli acknowledging the silent support of his wife and dedicating her his victory. When you are down and out, even that support makes you strong. I don’t understand why people have problem with men praising and acknowledging their wife, but despite all the backlash he continues to acknowledge her.
Even in the normal scenario, including me, when the husband goes out or travels for his work; he is at peace because he know the wife is handling the home, children, her work seamlessly. There are many days when the wife is not well, may be having a bad day, exhausted handling the children (of various stages), had an awful day at work but she handles it all with elan. When someone, including the husband, calls her up, she simply states, “I am fine. All good.”
Support is highly under-appreciated and underrated, and given our patriarchal setup husband appreciating the wife is a matter of ridicule or criticism. When the entire world is against you and criticizing you, on your good and bad days when the silent support gives you the strength to fight again, you should always appreciate and acknowledge that support.
Appreciating your own wife doesn’t make you “joru ka ghulam” or less manly rather it makes you the perfect partner, the man whom every woman would appreciate. It shows the secure, confident man of great character.
Be like him..not the trolls..

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
