Ever noticed the women of the house bustling about during festivities, functions, preparing so much for the rituals, going about the house as if with wheels on feet, buying stuff, cleaning and decorating houses, making sweets and delicacies, getting ready in glittery dresses, pasting smiles.
But when it comes to the actual ritual, specially in cases of ‘pooja’ the responsinilities somehow and very conveniently transfer to the men. How and why! I know, I am definitely going to get answers on beliefs amd culture, and faith and….. but somehow I don’t get the concept.
This is probably just too Indian. I do not know much about other cultures and cannot put a finger on them. But from what I know of my culture it is just there in front of me, and I don’t like it.
