“Mard ko dard nahin hota!” Ever since Amitabh Bachchan beautifully said this dialogue in his movie “Mard”, the apparently mere metaphorical representation of the pain and agony that Amitabh was subjected to “in the scene” took a leap of stride. The dialogue which was once used to symbolize the maleness has lately been readily abused and is used against males themselves, of course by their most appropriate counterpart. Who else would envy the males?
I am here to describe how being a male is a relentless tougher job than being a female. There, I said it. Someone has to whirl the perils of being a male in the women bent society, I am here do so. I heard a lot about how difficult is to be a female; people read and appreciate the facts but never hurl, “How is it being a male?” Being a male is not only shoving the pay cheque in a poker match, attending all the super cars/bikes rally or googling the nearest strip club, no absolutely not m’am. Perhaps, some facts might clear the mist around us.
From what I can understand, emotions are tender expressions inclined towards some people’s well being. We do not say it doesn’t means we are rock. Our tear glands are not big enough to shed buckets of tears and neither have we trained them to do so – Ekta Kapoor’s shows has never intrigued us.
Talk’s nonsense –
To manifest my point in this particular section I want you to stimulate a scene for me.
Working hard on every weekday in office, Friday night comes; friends come along, some chats, some catch up and a couple of drinks.
Now you see the nonsense part in Talk’s nonsense is not us, technically speaking. Alcohol sometimes makes us do what we have always afraid to do.
Uncivilized society –
I refuse to believe this allegation. We all live in a similar society as that of women but we choose to open ourselves to our alike. When I say open I don’t mean to start a strong viewpoint discussion on the quality of shawl Smithaji is wearing or the dubious shine in Mrs. Batra’s necklace; might be a fake. We discuss what is new in trend. Why Sheela is openly claiming her jawani? What Munni did that brought an embarrassment to her? Or why does Chikni Chameli always drinks the cheap unrefined alcohol, she can die?
Only Sports –
India is apparently a cricket inclined nation. We are so much bent towards this religiously worshiped game that we watch hockey only when India play’s Quarter Final, Semi Final or if India gets lucky, even final. Oh sorry, I got a bit carried away. Yes, we watch cricket because it gives us adrenal rush. Everyone needs something to notch his morale and what better than T20 cricket match?
Dirty Minds –
A random site surveyed India and posted the synopsis of their survey on their website. The survey was aimed to strengthen the voice of feminism. All men are pigs; the website articulated these words. I condemn this raised voice. We’re basically classified on what we think. I am 69% sure this is a cynicism. Women are good at blatant rants and baloney accusations. Sigh!
With everything sort it is an apparent conclusion that among the thick fog of prejudice, we, the men, continue to strive and thrive for our existence.
