Same thing continues...................

I’m waiting to share yet another incident with you. During the last two three days I am writing on the same issue because firstly there are so many aspects in this and secondly I have got so many incidents to share.
On a Sunday my parents and I had gone to a marriage party of one of my dad's colleagues. Now they have a custom that men and women don’t sit together. So mom and I had to go inside the house. Now sitting there was the mayor of the city. As we went inside and sat they didn’t welcome us with much ease as we are not of that place and thus as always we felt uncomfortable to be at local parties. Now as I was telling my mom to eat something fast as it was a must and get out of this place the mayor sitting beside me asked my mom how many children do you have? Mom answered “only one “she said to other ladies there how unfortunate and they replied yes. Now she asked once more I thing you should go for a boy otherwise who will look after you? My mom said she can also look after us. “are you joking” “no not at all we will teach her then why can’t she look after. “Oh! Then when will you marry her off? “ why after marriage also she can look after her. My mom got up from there as that lady was ridiculous and of course no body likes any body saying such things about their children.

Conclusion comes to the same.
Do people really change even after getting educated?

No, I didn't read KING OF TORTS, Normally I would like to read books of different authors if the first book I read is not an exceptional one. Only exception was Dan Brown and khaled Hosseini. May be I'll try this one, How's it?

Yah, Nice post, makes me wonder education serves it purpose or not?
Have you noticed that lots of terrorists and lots of people behind the violence/riots are professors, doctors, lawyers and such people who r supposed to have a nice position in the society?
These gender partiality and religious problems still exists even after education, Any solutions?

That's really awful. We are educated but I should say we are "EDUCATED ILLETERATE" as i call these ppl. They only know how to read, write, and speak languages but they dont know how to live a quality life, how to respect women or anyone. Keep up the good work shobna

Will that solve all the problem?

Hey Shobna, As from the incident, you can see that educating people does not always win! Lots of people do not practice what they learn. Literally! the male dominance is something that is really hard to get rid of... particularly in asian countries.
