Who says so? Have you ever seen two women near a municipal tap? Or two mothers fighting over their kids? Or a wife berating her husband who gets home late from work? It’s a myth that women are kind and considerate as a sex. On the other hand, they are cold and calculating and know just which side their bread is buttered. You have to see the women in Soaps on the TV- scheming, manipulative, ruthless, and wicked.
The exercise begins very early in life too. Dressed in their pretty pink frilly skirts, with bows and curls in their hair, they look like angels who can’t say ‘boo’ to a mouse. They giggle into each other’s tiny ears ghastly things about their brothers! If the brother were to tweak their ears or pull their ears or pull their hair, there is a torrent of tears.
Go getters- that is what we women are. Just go to the suburban Station at 5.30 in the evening and you’ll be surprised at the agility with which they go to get a seat in the train! Purses clutched to their bosom and sarees tucked at the waist, they poise themselves like atlehetes in the Olympics and the minute the train steams into the station, they charge like the light brigade. Feminity? Grace? What are you talking about? Victorian novels?
There is no doubt-women are a difficult species to contend with. If you know what’s good for you, keep on their right side. They make excellent friends and the most deadly enemies
