In my little circle, I am seeing a change which I consider is good for women in India..
I have just encountered more than one case in my close circle where girls had walked out of their first marriage when it was not working , mended their broken hearts , given second chances and are now working towards a better second relationship with a compatible partner ..
We have come to assert for what we want in our lives in traditional arranged marriage setting..We are not compromising our basic rights just to make the marriage work..We are open to learning from mistakes and giving second chances in relationships..
And now when I hear such happenings in the small town that I grew up, I am delighted as though it is a conservative town we are not giving up on the happiness of our women folk..
Thumbs up to second chances and I am extremely happy as this a warning bell to patriarchy which survives more on control and aggression of the meek.
For we have an access to information in our finger tips..
We can order food and groceries to our door step..
We can navigate through entirely new terrains with maps and minimal local help.
The way technology had made our life so comfortable is astounding..
And 20 yrs ago…all these comforts were nothing but a piper’ s dream..
20 years from now I can foresee the way technology is going to be pervasive in our life ,with the progress being made of the Cloud Engineering , AI and Natural Language Processing..Technology is going to be more intuitive and so human..and I am excited about it..
Probably one day we will travel by pods and have drone helpers the way we have cars and maids now.
Probably we would do space travel like how we now travel around the world via airlines.
Till then as humans,let us always dream and keep persisting on making our dreams come true..
