This is what most men want from marriage anyway right? A woman who can serve, that too without complaining and demanding anything in return! I think this young boy should start making more of these robot bahus.
Dear Raja Betas,
I have found your dream wife! I know the qualities you look for in a woman to marry. I know you do not find them these days in the horrible feminists who have contaminated the social fabric and are causing divorces. These women who are choosing to not marry you or are leaving you after marriage are so dumb and unfortunate that they are missing out on the opportunity of doing the one most noble, holy and fun task in the world – Taking care of your mother!
And these girls think they get married for companionship and getting a partner? How silly of them! Partner sounds like they want equality. So let us just make it clear to everyone once and for all. Husband is superior to wife. So marrying you, even if you are worthless, means the wife has won the lottery! Now who can be even more superior than YOU, the God’s gift to women? It is your mother! It should come as no surprise to the woman who was lucky enough to marry You, that she should spend the rest of her life pleasing this new (old?) woman who doesn’t even like her!
All you ever wanted was a woman who could cook, clean, and serve silently to you, your mother, and your Aira, Gaira, Nathu, Khairas (sundry family and friends). A peaceful life. Was that too much to ask for? Is it wrong to have expectations from your wife? If only she remained quiet and performed all her chores sincerely…
Nobody understands a man’s pain. Everybody only talks about women’s suffering! But fortunately there are still some empathetic people left in this brutally unfair world who worry about the difficulty men today are facing in finding good bahus for their mother.
Finally, someone from your own fraternity has ‘decoded’ a woman who has all the qualities that you ever wanted. She is beautiful. She is modestly dressed. She serves food in a tray to you, your mother, father, brother and any other Aira Gaira Nathu Khaira who resides with you or visits your residence. And the best part about this woman is that she doesn’t talk back!
In an attempt to help his mother with household chores, a Kerala boy has designed a robot with the appearance of a woman who can serve food and other things in a tray! He is planning on improvising the robot so that it can clean and do other housework as well! Good News, right?!
I don’t know why people are criticizing this innovative boy. He has clarified that he, his brother and father do help with the household chores. The appearance of the robot is “female” because it was his mother’s wish, and he just went by it! He was not trying to promote any gender stereotypes, mind you!
Who would have thought technology could also be used as a flag bearer of patriarchy! Double dhamaka! We should applaud the genius who combined these two fetishes of our Raja Babus! Oops! Raja Betas!
Plus, don’t all men make their wives follow their mother’s wishes no questions asked. Remember, this lady is the highest in hierarchy. The supreme power. This is what you want from marriage anyway right? A woman who can serve, that too without complaining and demanding anything in return! I think this young boy should start making more of these robot bahus. Let us create an app where instead of logging on to a matrimonial site, men can start ordering these for their mothers.
Good for you, and better than wasting a woman’s life, right? Spare us the horror!
No wonder most women miserably failed at being good Bahus. Forgive us. We were only human and thought we had rights and a voice.
Neeche ka kahan hai!
Phew! Manufacturing defect. If only the lower body part was also female!
Sorry guys! I should have done my research before making recommendations. She is not perfect for you! Alas! She is just an ordinary slave! Not a sex slave and not a baby making machine! Let’s give feedback to our tech champ to improvise and make a complete package!
Till then, my dear Raja betas, I guess you will have to manage with the human versions. The ones with their own brains. The ones who are not programmed and controlled by you and the lady who operates you – your mother.
Until another saviour finds the loophooles in your privileged life.

I like to write about the problems that have plagued the Indian society. I feel that the concept of gender equality is still alien , and that has been the focus of my articles and posts. read more...

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles. Most employees went about their tasks without looking at the person seated on either side of their workstation. Meenakshi was one of them.
The thirty-one-year-old marketing manager in a leading eCommerce company in India sat straight in her seat, her eyes on the screen, her fingers punching furiously into the keys. She was in a flow and wanted to finish the report while the thoughts and words were coming effortlessly into her mind.
Natu-Natu. The mellifluous ringtone interrupted her thoughts. She frowned at her mobile phone with half a mind to keep it ringing until she noticed the caller’s name on the screen, making her pick up the phone immediately.
