Share the load #1

When we share our happiness with others it is doubled and when we share our sorrow it would be halved. It should be aimed at making harmony and equilibrium in our social life. Especially it works out perfect in the domestic scenario because where there is peacefulness there is progress and happiness.

It is said that there is always a woman behind a man’s success. It holds well in the case of ladies also, as we see many men stand behind the very successful women despite several odds and limitations. Since more and more ladies are shouldering the responsibility of family problems and smooth running of day to day activities. I have seen the head of the family usually a male member would help his better half when she is cooking food for the family. In domestic chores men have realized the necessity for helping the ladies to mitigate their hardships.

As charity begins at home men should help women by doing small tasks like cutting onion, other vegetables, making tea or coffee and cleaning the vessels . I saw my friend who made tea for me when I paid a visit to his house as his wife was bedridden due to back ache. Like this we can come across men who are helping their wives in all the possible manner. Now the situation is such that to make both end meet ladies are also working and hence they get equal respect. Now the idea that ‘ the breadwinner is always the husband ‘has gone and most of the Indian families have both husband and wife working for the family and in some families women give more contribution by virtue of their talent and education. Most of the household chores are undertaken by machines it is better to learn how to operate them. If men take active participating in performing these tasks there won’t be so much burden to women and they would also get time for relaxation and rest.

Prevention is better than cure .When it comes to domestic chores it ranges from cleaning the floor to making food for guests. Not only ladies but also men are also expert in cooking and some are excellent in their culinary skill . In purana we hear about Nalan who is said to be a great cook. It is also advisable to be aware of what is happening in our house and when there is any emergency one needs not to be panic and look for help from others. Take in the case of wife falling ill if husband does not know how to use the washing machine think about the dirty clothes accumulating in the dustbin and give unnecessary tension. This is only a simple example and the list is endless . If at all men are ready to share the work usually ladies would undertake for the sake of family there would be peacefulness and a sense of happiness. Similarly ladies also should understand the income and expenditure and see the ways and means to run the family economically and without any debt. Here the role of ladies is very crucial and significant because they are greedy there is all the possibility of ruin of the family in the long run. 

I am joining the Ariel #ShareTheLoad campaign at BlogAdda and blogging about the prejudice related to household chores being passed on to the next generation.
