Sitting in the train, I am here watching the beautiful Western Ghats and the vast plains of India. I have been wondering all along that we have such a beautiful country that is so huge and we have not utilised even 10% of it. Is it because we are scared to live alone in the nature once we come to the city and get comfortable in easier things and the hustle bustle of life that anything apart from the city feels very remote to us?
As girls, we would see our brothers and their guy friends play on the roads. But yes even I used to join them and play cricket and hide & seek on the streets. It’s totally okay not to learn how to cook when you are in 3rd standard. As women, it’s totally okay to wear shorts and play basketball and dream of becoming sportswomen later in life. When I was a young girl, traditions never restricted me. For me anything that my brother could do meant I could do too.
