We are running on a treadmill. A lot of this blame goes to our parents and society. The level of expectations put on young shoulders by Indian parents is undoubtedly beyond the limits.
There is a checklist made as we age. This system makes life miserable for women, a constant nudge of getting married and getting settled. Even the most educated and feminists cannot escape it.
There have been awkward conversations like:
- You are going to die with your pets.
- Get married you are crossing 29th year, having a baby will be difficult.
My question is simple, why do Indian parents have such controlling urges? Why can’t they let their kids live their life? Are women just baby-making machines?
