Househusband? Indian wives would probably give each other 'knowing' looks rather than admit it as something to feel proud about. But you know what, that is changing. It's not a bad thing, is it? Especially if you look at it from a woman's perspective. Will this trend find more takers? I don't know but I think it will gather momentum.
Chetan Bhagat as House Husband
The August 2012 issue of Child magazine presented the parenting views of Chetan Bhagat, best selling Indian author. Pleasantly surprised, I wanted to share some of the statements that caught my interest because I feel that it is bold for any Indian male to make these statements with such honesty and conviction.
For example, Chetan Bhagat states boldly, "I am a house husband. My wife loves to work. That does not make her any less a mother or a wife. She is true to herself, the kids and to me."
I can't think of many successful Indian men saying this with such intense passion. These views differ from person to person but the statement also springs a trend that is now taking root gradually in many parts of India.
Chetan Bhagat on Lavish Birthday Parties
Chetan Bhagat states that he always explains the ground realities esto kids. When they complain about how lavish their friends' birthday parties are, he tells them clearly that birthday parties are not weddings. It is a rule in his home that birthday parties are celebrated at home. If the kids continue complaining and comparing with friends, he tells them to go and live with their friends instead. He says it is important for kids to value money and have a sound sensible value system to live by.
I agree with this Birthday Party theory one hundred per cent. What about you? I'd love to know.
