Roughly 1 year ago, in a fine day suddenly we Indians find ourselves in a peculiar mess as because of sudden withdrawal of the value of all 500 and 1000 notes. The aftermath of this decision is something which we enjoyed thoroughly and quite horribly.
But there is something on what we really laughed at. The sudden discoveries of the stashed cash by the woman brigade (more properly the housewives brigade of our country). It was a great fun and quite tickling that time to know, from where our “Saree/Salwar brigade” in our home are taking out those stashed cashes. Their embarrassed and squabby faces of them during sthat surrender time make us feel manly enough to be capable of trapping them red handed.
But, according to a current survey on 83 countries across the World, UN confirmed that women at home “do 2.6 times as much unpaid care and domestic work as men”.
In my society, I have heard the male fraternity usually jeers at the homemakers female folks to be absolute lazy, less physical input giver in comparison to their labour at their workplace and obviously an efficient stasher of their hard-earned money.
I don’t think that this scenario is much different in other countries too. But have we ever tried to find out the most possible and rough amount a home-makers should be given according to her never-ending working hour and multitasking skills?
Have we ever tried to appreciate them for their sincere input?
No. We never tried this, rather we are just here to mock people for their wrong-doings.
I think now it is the high time to give it a thought so that we can put a step forward towards a well-thought society that knows how to pay a right price to a useful though disguised labour. Then only we can understand that those stashed amount is too little in comparison to their due salaries that we have stocked without paying them a penny.
