As I sit in a local bound to Bombay central, I can’t help but notice, a lone mother amidst an avalanche of Mumbaikar men.
She looks so puny and helpless in this Thursday morning train crowd. And I ponder, isn’t it true in the world outside too.
Boys whether you notice it or not, believe it or not, it is indeed a man’s world.
We have created the rules for them, what to do, what not to do, what to wear, what to not to, what to drink, what to not, and the list goes till the Marina trench’s bottom.
By the grace of nature itself, they go through so much that we can’t even fathom, be it the monthly periods, super tough and painful childbearing, menopause. And superadded to that we have unfair regulations on her when she’s bleeding, we expect her to be a big baby-making machine, we expect her to work and sacrifice for her family from teen till tomb.
Don’t you guys think, it’s too harsh on them? Mother nature is already tough on them and we show our gratitude by making it more difficult for them.
And what compounds everything is their emotional journey. They mature faster, they are smarter, they are far more emotional than we bright red bricks. So, Of course, they think more and mind you XY fellas out there, there’s nothing as ‘Overthinking‘, some people think more and some less, that’s it.
They feel more pain. They suffer more. They are hurt more.
Admit it guys, we are useless without these beautiful creations on earth, and yet we make their living directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously more hellacious, more gruelling.
The ultimate worst part is, we don’t even realise it! (Of course, we are scientifically dumb enough not to understand their subtle signs, appeals or their upfront requests.)
Feeling guilty, you should be!
I don’t know what we gonna do folks, but let’s make a better world for our women, shall we?
Maybe for starters,
(Mind you, these are not just for your girlfriends/partners, your own sisters and mothers deserve these too)
You could be a true gentleman not just some animal having pee pee in his pants.
Start to listen to her genuinely.
Be there for her, support her emotionally when she’s going through turbulence,
Help her out with daily households.
Don’t ignore her emotional tantrums, there may be a bigger issue beneath.
So gentlemen, have you got more ideas on how to make her life prettier?
And my dear ladies, do you want to rant something or add something, know that, we at, the Ikiguy, have got your back.
Your Only, Dinesh Raja, A Wizard who feels the World.
