Romeo & Juliet could have lived if only...

Do you know Romeo and Juliet could have lived happily ever after? There was no reason why Anarkali could not have been saved from her fate of being buried alive in a brick wall.All tales of eternal love that met with an tragic end could have seen happy endings . Even Soni Mahiwal,Heer Ranjha and so many lovers who met untimely death at the cruel hands of society who opposed their union could also have been saved and lived happily ever after if only they had heeded to my advice seriously. After all our society is of stereotypes that oppose true love. So they spot you hanging from the balcony of your beloved and they kill you for being in love. If you are in love you are constantly under the scrutiny and cross-hairs of society who are always ready to pass judgments. They adhere to stereotypes such as the fact that laundry is a w omen’s job. Had this not been the case then why would
- 81% of married men in India agree that their daughters must learn household chores.
- 76% of married men in India believe that not helping with Laundry at home still makes them a great role model for their children
- 2 out of every 3 children think that washing clothes is a mothers job
-78% of girls in India agree that they should learn Laundry as they will have to do it when they grow up and
- 65% of married men in India agree that their children replicate their behavior at home
- 2 out of every 3 children think that household work is a mothers job.

So all you great lovers who got spotted on, balconies, gardens and so many places where the moral police were looking for you. Instead you could have chosen to do the laundry together and meet in the laundry room. As most of the society around us believes that laundry is a w omen’s job you could have easily escaped the cruel ends that you met with. Besides washing clothes together, singing love songs and then spreading the wet clothes to dry in the sun can be a great backyard romantic escape for the love birds.
At the same time your homes would have got rid of the dirty clothes.
On a more serious note guys be a man and share the load of doing the laundry. Be it you mom, your sister, girl friend or wife they need your love as well as your support by sharing the load of doing the laundry. I take this pledge that I would share the load of doing laundry at home as I strongly believe that if you love someone then shower your special one with love and do not burden them with dirty laundry
