Anil Singhal commented, “I also think that in our society – in a way women stop growing (rather forced to stop growing/living their life etc) at a young age.. and marriage is a definite full stop ! (IHM – food for thought for the next blog – Why marriage shouldn’t be a full stop in life – specially for the women.”
Do you think Indian women are expected to grow up instantly, or stop growing once they get married? Does marriage mean end of freedom to live and grow for many Indian women?
Also, have you heard of women being told, “You don’t look/act married?”
How is the ‘married Indian woman look’ and lifestyle different from other Indians?
Is “not looking married” seen as a compliment for Indian women? Why is that so?
