My mom’s stood complaining a lot ever since PM Modi declared the lockdown. There are a lot of tasks to be done and everyone wants a lot to eat every other hour. She’s like, ‘bas merey kitchen me lockdown nahi hai.’
On the other hand, men at most of the houses are grumpy of being fed up; hence they often hit the streets just to check the ‘maahool’, disrespectful the lockdown procedures. Hence, to comfort the load of homemakers and to keep the men of the family busy, Punjab police came up with a wonderful idea.
In a video shared online, a Punjab cop is entreating women to put men to work at home throughout the lockdown.
In the video he says:
“Everybody sees the state of coronavirus syndrome in India. The PM and CMs of different states have been speaking about it.”
“From this time, I would like to appeal all my sisters that if the men at home are lazy, saying that it’s getting difficult for them to stay at home, put them to work.”
“Tell them to clean your homes and walkways. Ask them to wash tools and attires. Ghar di safai hoegi, coronavirus di safai hoegi, naley inna di v safai hoegi.”
He extra adds, “They’ll also learn to cook in these 21-days so women don’t have to think who’ll cook food for the family in their nonexistence.”
“When they’re at home, you give them a task, if they’ll derive out, we’ll look after them. They are uselessly traveling around while you work day &night.”
“So if they don’t want to rest at home in the next three weeks, then let them work at home.”
At these critical times, we all need to work collected and share the burden even if it means the distribution of the household chores or serving your mom in the kitchen. Let’s raise the value of the work women do for us all daylight and support them in any way possible.
