We live in Delhi-NCR and it means that we are all MCPs and we love using expletives like “Teri Bhen Di” etc etc
It is a sad but true fact that women are just fluff (or so the Jaatland would like to believe)
Builders and the Government have bought huge amounts of land from the rural belt, so Jaatland is/was flush with money. The men did what they felt was sensible ….
They bought buffalos, cars, shifted to towns ….. and then felt that they had done too much! So they spent the rest on booze and brawled their days away.
But Jaatland is actually run by women
Women who have actually learnt English to get their children to do their homeworks
Women who care for those buffalos
Women who have been transplanted into urban mileu and who are quietly learning the “sehri” ways of dressing and living
Women who are selling the milk, cream, ….. and even learning how to stitch salwar kameezes so that they have work (which they hide from their men-folk)
Yesterday I saw a rural woman actually teaching another in pure haryanvi hindi how to drive a Scorpio
“Eb too peydal ney daab dey, khetan mein teractor na chalaya tenne?”
(Now press the pedal – havent you driven a tractor in the field?”
Wow! I am impressed – wonder about safety on the roads though!
