A perspective on roles of Indian Women

This post is as an entry for the Indus ladies contest of the same name.

Roles? Did you really just say Roles?

This blogger has only one perspective on that: One day, when i was a child, my Grandfather asked me, "So, how many colors are there in all?" Super confident, i looked inside my crayon box and replied, "There are 12 colors in the world."
But there aren't 12 colors in the world. There are infinite. Just like the number of "roles" played by women - Indian or otherwise.

Enough said.

Through all those roles, only this i do know: A thousand men make an army. It takes a woman to make a home.

I tag 3 of my favorite people:
1. Mampi
2. nm
3. Chiya

You are right, and you are wise to know it. I found it out 20 years ago, when I was working away from home for a few weeks - I left in the morning before anyone else was up and returned after they were home from school. Although I didn't have work to bring home so gave the family my attention in the evening, they were all unsettled, even the teenagers. It was quite odd, because I didn't feel anything was different from their point of view, but they sensed my attention was elsewhere.
