India since time and ages has been a patriarchal society. ‘Patriarchy’ is the type of society or government in which the father or the eldest male is head of the family and descent is reckoned through the male line. With changing times India has also seen numerous changes in society, technology, form of government and laws but what remains the same is the thinking and mindset of some individuals. They forget how along with JL Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Ratan Tata and Mukesh Ambani women like Bhikaji Cama, Indra Nooyi, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw and Shikha Sharma have equally contributed for the development and growth of the country . Now let’s talk about the news doing rounds in the country about Koffee With Karan.
Well recently we saw India’s two youth inspirational icons and great cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul in the famous Koffee with Karan. They were seen talking their heart out about their love, sex and cricket life. I don’t feel offensive about people talking about their personal life but what deeply hurts is how even today despite being such great cricketers they only had macho to play on national television. They were seen discussing the number of girls they have slept with, how they are not interested in the girl or her name but only her moves.
It may feel normal and a matter of joke to many .I really want to ask them “Is that all you have, to talk about girls”. This thinking of some Indian men that ‘girls are just worthless object . They wait for rich guys to send them an appropriates msgs and take them home to get in their pants’ . This is the reason why India is the most unsafe country in the world.
Well you are rich and respected by all,
But does that give you the freedom to treat us like a doll.
We look up to them and the young aspire to be like you,
But that is not how we want our country’s kids to grow.
If you are interested in our moves and not who we are ,
Then leave your job and try a therapy for your brain and heart.
While the government is trying to promote education of girls,
Such people come on TV to create this irrelevant swirl.
Now in the open are all the ‘The locker Room’ tales
Exposing the reality behind their high end Veil.
Hardik your name may be dumb at least behave a little sane,
There is no pride in talking to girls referring to how your dick behaves..
To The BCCI don’t you think it’s now too late,
Repenting your decision when the damage has been made.
Giving strong statements and banning them won’t create a change,
If influential people in power are going to keep behaving this way.
What needs to change is not the society but the people that stay,
As the society is superficial an imagination of our minds
And only if we behave properly can we hope for a change in coming times.
This article cannot be ended without introducing you to these youth icons of Koffee with Karan who are taking India’s women forward (for-reward)
