A rare compliment to Indian husbands February 18, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in india, life.

Mitra Kalita of MINT has a letter to all Indian husbands. Its surprisingly complimentary, one in a long time, as she talks of how behind every successful (married, working) woman, there is an understanding husband. ( that the converse is as true goes without saying)

And so we type this letter (in between meetings, of course) to you as a way of acknowledging you husbands out there who have made our climbs up the ladder possible. You should know who you are because you are likely the ones who either dropped off or picked up the children from school today, paid the electricity and mobile bills, and bought the gift for our great-aunt’s 83rd birthday party this weekend (although we called and reminded you every step of the way). Unlike those who lived a 14 February filled with flowers and perfume, we were grateful to come home to find you reading to the children and the clothes washed and ironed; we kissed you all goodnight and turned on the laptop.

Hurrah, I promised myself exactly this kind of a life when I wrote on this subject before. :-).
