I know eavesdropping is bad manners and uncultured but one cannot avoid overhearing other’s conversation while travelling in public transport and I admit to my guilt of eavesdropping

Following are some of my musings after eavesdropping a conversation between two women travelling in a local transport

Are men specially created by God?

Can they never do any wrong?

What is that special quality which the men have which makes them feel that they are superior to women?

What is that special quality which makes men treat women like door mat?

What is the unique thing in men that makes men ill treat women?

What is so special in men that inspite or the humiliation, insults, abuse which they subject their women to, they still get respect, concern and obedience from women?

Why do most of the men always blame the women for any crisis/calamity /financial loss/ downs in the career/mishappenings/family disputes?

Are the men always right?

Don’t they have any responsibility towards family?

Why is that any thing good is because of the husbands and any thing which is not favorable is the doing of the women?

Does the principles of life after death, Paap and Punya, Hell and heaven doesn’t apply to men?

Does the philosphy of “BURA KAROGE TO BURA MILEGA” not applicable to men?

Are they not scared that they will have to suffer for the deeds of this birth in their next birth?

Why do women silently tolerate this inhumane behavior?

Is it because of fear of society/family/financial security/future of children/they enjoy the insults/or they have just got used to this attitude and have given in to the situation

What will happen if the women gear up and enough courage to get up and say

“Thanks for giving me the chance to find someone better that you”

A heart touching line told by a woman to her husband
“I do not hate you but I have lost all the reasons to love you”

      er no. god created men and women to be partners, where one fails the other is strong, so together they will be undefeatable.

    You the bible sums up this post with just one line : Ephesians 5:25-27

    Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church

    God’s love is infinite, unimaginable depth. Imagine a man who simply follows just this!

    Looks like the woman who was posing those questions was really upset and mistreated. While at one point in history men WERE seen as greatly superior and all, today not even men themselves follow such radical notions about their own superiority (except for maybe a few male chauvinists here and there). Most men in my family are responsible, dutiful, respectful towards women etc.

    Have you heard the concept ‘Shiv and Shakti’? Shakti is the power, the feminine, while Shiv is the vessel, the masculine. The goddess Diana/Artemis/Bast is a goddess who has no ‘other half’ – she is powerful and merciful. Same with Athena. Marrying the Queen was what made you King in the ancient religions (see Celtic Britannia, Sachi of the Hindu gods, Isis from Egypt).Modern Christianity, manipulated by power-hungry priests, is possibly the only religion that advocates women as evil and inferior – all other religions including the original Christianity (which only promoted peaceful cohabitation with others) hold women as equal or higher.
    Unfortunately the stigma created by the stupid Adam and Eve result has lasted through the ages. There is nothing stopping abused women to walk out the door – but its weak minds that make them stay thinking they have no choice, for various reasons. Its only their choice that matters. The community/nation/world wouldn’t give a damn whether or not one abused woman makes it out alive, just as one person doesn’t give a damn whether or not the world will be affected by their choices. That’s why people who live and die for others are called saints – not because they are holy, but because they are not self-centered.
    If you care about the world’s opinion on your actions, you’ll never be free. Walk out.
