Today there is far more to college courses than just engineering, MBBS, and commerce. Like this 'new' Dulhan course that an institute in Hyderabad is allegedly teaching.
A Twitter user shared an image of a pamphlet advertising a 'Dulhan Course' or 'Home Management'. The course helps 'students re-discover the value and impact of the family home'. It includes lessons such as cooking, beauty tips, home management, finance/budgeting, and even mehendi.
No, really, what the actual fuck is this? Hyderabad, you are far more fucked up than I thought! Are they any classes for men or the entire onus of making a marriage work is on the woman alone? When is our society going to change & stop putting the entire burden on the woman! pic.twitter.com/tnaea7HgtF— Amena (@Fashionopolis) September 2, 2019
The country may be going to the moon, literally, but our society is stuck in the 'dark ages'. Naturally, Twitter was quick to call out the regressive ad:
No wonder we still patriarchal society ,this is just insulting of women nothing else— Seema yadav (@Seemaya35818508) September 2, 2019
Well, Hyderabad is united in imposing patriarchal traditions and sexism. It was always fucked up. Forceful marriages, domestic abuse, divorce, and what not. I feel sorry for other cities when people from other places say "Hyderabad is far better'— Beerdas (@Beerdaas) September 2, 2019
Wait, what? So instead of educating women, you teach them home making skills because that is best they can be?— #DabangKhatoon پربھا (@deepsealioness) September 2, 2019
Sad to see this in todays world. If such courses are for women similar should be given to men as well.— Mohmmad Taha (@mohmmadTaha) September 2, 2019
Seriously! This is effed up! As a Hyderabadi am embarassed! 😐— Tushar Nanda || تُشار نندا || तुषार नन्दा (@IAmTusharNanda) September 2, 2019
Most men think this way, sadly in Hyderabad and rest of India. They need a wife to produce babies and cook food. Being a resident of Hyderabad myself I totally agree irrespective of religion men feel they are entitled to rule control and mansplain women.— No place like 127.0.0.1 (@chriscussions) September 2, 2019
