Being a woman in India - It is not all that bad!
We all are aware of the challenges an Indian woman faces on a day-to-day basis- assaults, security, arranged marriages, women rights, pride-shattering experiences and the list is never ending but I refuse to accept that with the disadvantages there are no advantages. Personally, I think that there are a lot of perks of being an Indian woman.
Here are a few perks of being an Indian woman:
24*7 helpIf you are a woman, even if you are a strong independent woman who is completely capable of taking care of themselves, you still are provided with help on an urgent basis, no matter what!
ReservationsMetro coaches, general seats, seats in colleges, different wards, and it is everywhere. Even during the demonetization period, women line was different and SHORTER.
PrioritiesAlways on priority one. If there is a line with all guys in it but two girls, they will make a separate girls line. In the mess, if you are the second last person and there is only one rasgulla left, the mess guy and the guy standing in front of you will both offer you the last one. Yes, it is an etiquette but have you ever wondered why is it there amongst the people in general, because they have been raised to treat you special than they are (for all the feminists out there... special and not low).
Extra securityYou always have extra security, please do not start with why needed that in the first place. Whatever the reason might be, you have someone to pick up and drop you every time, anywhere and your convenience is a never ending project.
Soft cornerEverywhere and anywhere you go, people treat you with a tender heart. Be it a bank queue, ATM queue, college library, billing counters, in weddings, at home, at work place etc etc.... Don't you enjoy these benefits?
Free drinksTwo words: ladies night.
Skip legal obligations with a smileRaise your hand if you were ever caught breaking a rule on the road and you smiled and said "sorry bhaiya" and got away with it. **raises hand**
Cheap clothes and accessoriesSarojini haul gals, c'mon. So whenever I go to Sarojini and come back with bags full of clothes, my guy friends always, always and without fail tell me that how lucky girls are since they are able to get cheap good stuff but there is no such market as such for guys.
Minority is a boonBecause you get to have all the points I said above. :P
I am not saying that the world is fair to a woman, I am not discussing if it is or if it is not. All I am trying to say is that it's easy to focus on things we do not have or things which are wrong. Yes, we should try and bring a change there but with that, one should not forget to appreciate what we have with us. All the good things.
