Doesn’t matter how hard Indian moms work for their kids and families, our patriarchal society will always find a way to pull them down?
If you feel this doesn’t hold true for you, then let us break the good news – YOU ARE VERY LUCKY!
Unlike you, many Indian moms have been put under the constant pressure of being judged during their journey of motherhood.
And, recently when Chavvi Mittal, the actress, posted a disturbing encounter with a man calling his pregnant wife a “cow”, we couldn’t hold our anger and agony.
But thanks to her no-nonsense attitude, she not only slammed him but also posted a hard-hitting note for people who do not respect women for all the sacrifices they make to get a new soul in the world.
She took to Instagram to shared a strong message on how men need to treat to-be moms:
“Let me begin by thanking each one of you who have been following my posts and inboxing/commenting with your feedback and queries. However, I was completely shocked by a query in my inbox recently.
A husband reached out to me asking for weight loss tips for his pregnant wife, who he said: “is becoming a cow already”!
It pains me immensely to know that a husband, who is seeing his wife go through the daily pain of pregnancy can completely disregard the sacrifice that she has made in terms of her own body, to create a new life for both of them!
How can somebody be so insensitive towards their own life partner!
What sort of person can treat a woman, any woman in that way!”
Chhavi Mittal added,
“I implore all men, all husbands to RESPECT women around you. Especially if she is pregnant but nevertheless!
A woman.. your wife is getting ready to tear her own body apart to get this beautiful being into this world.. a world which she believes is full of love.. love for her and her baby.
So love your wife, because nobody in the world will be with you in your worst times as much as your gorgeous wife, who sticks with you through your romance as much as she does through your rotten temper.
And trust me, she will give you FAR more than you will ever give her in your whole life!”
