There is an old lady living close by. Her husband passed away many years back. He was in the Air Force. So she is getting a pension. She has two daughters.
The eldest daughter is married. She has one child. Her husband met with a road accident and lost both his legs. She is working and supporting the family.
The second daughter is married. She is working. She has two small children. Her husband is jobless and he is living separately. She is supporting the family.
The old lady is staying with the younger daughter. She cooks, cleans the house, washes piles of clothes, feeds the grand children and generally takes care of the house. The daughter normally has night duty and sleeps in the day time.
Does this mean that women can take care of themselves without husband's help or is this a tragedy of life? Can someone enlighten me?

I think women survive better with children because kids listen to them. Men either dominate or are dominated. I would vote for tragedy.

Hello again Joesph! Thanks for stopping by my blog! As for ahimsa I put that in specifically (I am a trained yoga teacher/therapist) we used to talk alot about it in our classes. I think Sanskrit is wonderful wish I knew more, but am greatful for what I do know. I love
Ayurveda too, its all very interesting.
As for your question I think women generally just get on with things. Best to you from Australia!
