I am not saying that only women are expected to know household stuff. These skills are equally important for male and female to survive alone. I remember my father always helping out my mom whether it be cooking food or washing clothes (because my mom had 4 kids to take care of). When my father got transferred to a village, my mother stayed back in Kota for 15 years so that she can make 4 IITians out of us. All this was possible only because my father knew how to take care of himself without being dependent on anybody. This is called being an Independent person. We cannot call ourselves “Independent” when we are so much dependent on others to do the task for us.
There are characteristics of a women that differentiates them from men. And one of them is the nurturing nature. All mom/ghar ki yaad videos get a lot of attention these days but have we ever thought how our kids will deal with daily stuff when we are so much “Dependent” on our servants.
