Manly?

Manly?

1 min 134 1 min 134

You need to hit me in order to make sure you are manly? You know what's manly? Chivalry. 

Letting a woman walk before you, opening the door for her, letting her express her views is manly. 

Not raising your voice is manly. 

Considering both as equals, is manly. 


Ask yourself what if it was your sister or mother instead of me taking all your beatings.

Imagine them being humiliated at every second that they breathe. 

Making home feel like jail.. Is that manly? 

Badi ladi mardaani woh.. Jhaasi ki woh rani thi.. Woh bhi aurat thi? 


Mother Teresa was a woman? 

Indira Gandhi, Kiran Bedi, Oprah Winfrey? 

Maybe its okay for you.. Not for me

Say no.. To domestic violence..


Move on and help women facing domestic violence. 

No.. Its not manly.
