Usman Ghani - Marriage and honour, in India,

Marriage and honour, in India, are not mutually exclusive. As dismaying as it sounds, even after so many years of independence, India and Indians are living in a world full of regressive beliefs that refuse to evolve with time. 

Yes, we may call married, ‘domestic’ women homemaker now, but the oppressive notions still adjudge them as housewives.

And God knows, there are very few who take a stand against the society that mocks the institution of marriage. Call it our stars but we have found one from the pool who has an important story to tell. A story of a bright girl who lost herself and her career to parental and societal pressure.

In a series of tweets, this story of a girl will make you ponder a lot of things.

“MY PARENTS ARE TOO OLD, SICK AND SCARED”
A reason that forces most of the girls with ambitions into a life of anonymity.

While that was her story, her friend tried his best that it doesn’t become somebody else’s. 

15.

Girls! Your parents love you. But one day, they will be old, sick and scared. DO NOT QUIT YOUR CAREER FOR MARRIAGE.
Earn you own money.

16.

It does not matter if you're thirty or thirty five, do not marry, I say DO NOT MARRY a man you feel is unsuitable for you.

17.

Parents! One day, you will be old, sick and scared. Please raise your daughters as persons and not as commodity. Let them work and earn.

18.

Teach your girls to live on their own and never depend on a man for their survival. Do not force them to marry if there is no compatibility.

19.

Parents! Don't panic if your girl is in 30's & single. Let her pursue her dreams. Don't blackmail your girl for marriage. This isn't love.

20.

Girls! Do not be blackmailed in the name of family, honor or parents. You are the ones who have to live with the man, YOU decide.

21. 

Parents! Teach your sons to respect women. Teach them that they're marrying a human being and they're equals. Let your daughter-in-law work.



No, just carrying a briefcase to work doesn’t make you a feminist but standing up for your own rights and life choices does! If only people understood that. 

We appreciate Usman’s efforts in throwing light at such a predicament and second his thoughts.
