Tuesday Tattles : Think and then act

​Two days after his marriage, the groom went to the beauty parlor where his wife was made a bride, and handed over a box of iPhone 7 to the beautician  in the parlor as a gift.πŸ˜ŽπŸ€” The beautician thanked him,πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—and happily opened the box to find a Nokia 1100 inside ..😬 and a letter which read..*”Same Feelings”*πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This is not the first time something of this sort is passed around. I’m bloody irritated when people do, more irritated when women do. Like that idiom in Malayalam, spitting in the air is like spitting on yourself. 

The point being, it is a joke at the face of it. But at its core it is a societal practice, that upholds an idea of beauty, beauty of the woman, in this case. We all know, an idea of beauty is transient, it is in the eyes of the beholder and such, still when it comes to women it makes or mars her life. Societal standards? I’m a far cry away from being a feminist or to carry the burden of such lofty -isms, but these forwards and jokes are how many ideas are instilled in the minds of people, and they make me smack the people who forward them! Haw!

When women talk about bias and discrimination in general at home, their workplace, when they are out on a walk, anywhere, what we don’t realize is the fight has to be fought at a much basic level of everyday talk, like these forwards. In forwarding such crass jokes, they also participate in the prevalent bias and discrimination. Then how in the world can they sit and complain later? What is the use? But it is these that are creating and continues these biases.

Think about it, how many such forwards, the husband-wife jokes, or stupid wife jokes, do we laugh at and pass on in the name of a laugh?  

If you were to ask me, I’d say take a conscious effort to not spread such silly jokes, because in the long run, they run deep or if you are keen on forwarding them, then lol when society does something to you because you were born a woman! 😎

Ya bec they could have removed that part and telecasted the show but they chose to show that means they wanted to create a fuss and ratings.even the roadies show is scripted itsms,i couldn’t believe it.people just act so stupid thr and I can’t believe that they spoil thr image infrnt of national television just fr making the show scripted.

            1. Anything for money and trp, and a moment of fame, even if the fame comes through being infamous or stupid. High time all of us realize all that all that we see are not real or spontaneous. That kind of takes away the fun of the illusion, but everything, let’s be fair, most of the things aired are scripted, practised, retakes, and staged.
