Sure it's nice being wished on Women's Day, but is it what we really want or need? Don't think so. I guess I'd be speaking for most women out there if I just said it- we can do without the sweet WhatsApp messages, and IG posts flooding our feeds for a mere 24 hours. We'd much rather be respected and given equal rights and consideration every day of our lives.
Which is what Hansal Mehta also said, when he posted on Twitter today. The film director ended his post sharply by saying "364 days of assholery and one day of hypocrisy."
Ho gaya women’s day? Ab? Let’s become our true selves again? 364 days of assholery and one day of hypocrisy.— Hansal Mehta (@mehtahansal) March 9, 2021
Many people agreed with what he said, and frankly, that is a far bigger relief than the tweet itself.
Very few ppl have the guts to speak out their mind in public....thanks for the CONFESSION and admitting your hypocrisy.— अवन्तिका 🇮🇳 (@DrAVSriv) March 9, 2021
Hope there was no rape on 8th March anywhere in India. It will be considered big achievement by itself!— MusicalBird (@MusicalBird1) March 9, 2021
