So all Indian women must have brothers, i.e. all Indian parents must have sons? Then we wonder about our skewed gender ratio?
Please note, I am not sure if ‘Mai’ (to be released Oct 31st) is trying to promote the Patriarchal ‘chain’ of Budhape ka sahara and Paraya Dhan, this is one of the reactions to the trailer.
if u r doing good to ur parents-in-law then ur own parents r being treated good by ur brother’s wife.. Its a ‘Chain’ .. the give n take of the respect in the same relations. Be good.. Get good..
While I watched this trailer, somehow I remembered your blog … it is getting applauds on its last line but I don’t feel much comfortable with it… check it out.
Here’s another reaction to the trailer:
ufffffff…!!! really very good trailer… its an appeal to all the women in the world pls if u can feel the pain for your own parents then u should feel the same pain for your husband’s parents too.. then no mother n father will be homeless n the all daughters will stay happy in their own home…
Do Indian daughters (the Paraya dhan), have their ‘own’ homes? And can they welcome their ‘own parents’ in their ‘own homes’?
I hope the movie is a reminder to Indian parents that girl children are their ‘own’ children too.
Updated to add: And this is the future Indian daughters are trained for, from the age of three?
