That's no fun

When someone called me from Blogadda telling there’s an activity running on it called, “Is laundry only a woman's job?” and if I would like to participate, the first thing that came to my mind was an incident that irritated me the most. I have been thinking about writing about it and now by seeing the statistics by AC Nielsen, I think I should write about it since it proved right from my experience. I have always felt some kind of (sometimes passive)gender bias everywhere except my home. But when I came to know that women are treated in equal even at their home I felt really bad. I was once traveling with my colleagues and while chit chatting, one guy asked everyone which washing machine is better within his budget which he specified. He continued telling that his sister got married and his mom is all alone so he don't want her to do his works too and so he wanted to buy a washing machine since it would at least lessen her laundry work at home.

Just Smiles

As I had told in my previous post I was kind of a loner kid and I found happiness in the company of all the things around me; both living and non-living. People used to laugh at me when I happened to tell them that I talk to ants, plants and other beings which live in our world and lead a very different life style. May be as a kid I was imagining those then. Oopz! This is not what I was about to tell. I am here with another story. Yes, I used to suffer from sinusitis and frequently had check ups. But my condition was the same. One day things seemed like everything was cured and after few days again I fell sick. It was at that time a new doctor came to our place and soon I booked an appointment. After suffocating in the rush crowd, I happened to get in when my token was called out.  The doctor smiled at me. I didn't smile back; I remember. He started asking about my personal details (like where I studied, my grade, my ambition etc.) and then the details of my illness.
