It seems to me that in her innermost thinking an Indian wife is always in a state of recoil from the husband, and the violent separation this recoil creates is a graveyard of unacknowledged questions between them.
Perhaps we need some sort of an evolutionary theory to explain how the situation has turned so dire. To that end, I suggest everyone should read the Book of Job. Even a short summary read on the internet will be enough, but pay attention to minor details. Go past what God did, and what Job did or did not, and watch what Job’s friends say. Keep your focus on Job’s friends.
What if Job were a woman and she were pressured to cease her resistance to the man, but she asks why anyway and refuses? Everyone around her would then accuse her of having done something wrong. But since man is not God there are no resets or pauses in her story. So her only recourse is to continue to fight the fight. All those around her, her friends included, keep shifting and changing the nature of blame on her but in their eyes she alone remains unchanged–unchanged in her condition that she must’ve done something wrong. Only those who remember the beginning–the beginning as in when Satan approaches God with a proposal that titillates God, only those who were present at this beginning will have the capacity to know the truth that it is they who are misguided.
So now, if you followed the logic above, it is clear that for the rest of us who were not present at the beginning, we only need to have the truth broadcast to us from whenever this beginning occurred. And guess what, that beginning lies in the sense of humanity within us. It really is true, all history that should matter for its lessons is within us.
Do you see how you don’t have to be anyone other than the better version of yourself to comprehend this simple truth?
