I have faced lots of problems due to patriarchy in my life. I faced most problems while getting my education till then. Since today, I never let the patriarchy affect my life, and I become a liberalist. I am challenging patriarchy in every single moment of life.

Shloka 5/167 says, “Any woman violating duty and code of conduct towards her husband, is disgraced and becomes a patient of leprosy. After death, she enters the womb of a jackal.”
Shloka 9 of Chapter 3 says, “Since women are not capable of living independently, she is to be kept under the custody of her father as a child, under her husband as a woman and under her son as a widow.”
Demotivation: Whenever any woman wants to create her own destiny, so many people are there to discourage her. ‘How can you do this?’, ‘You are not able to do this’, ‘You can’t do that’, and so on. But think about the birth of a child, which is a more difficult task if she can do it easily and lovingly, so why can’t she perform all the other roles of the outer world.

There is some quick fix that is helpful for everyone to make life more eloquent. Everyone is blessed with skills. We just need to analyze those skills and then grow in that direction.

Homemakers to be proud of being a homemaker, millions of women have been suffering from the disease of inferiority complex, which we need to eradicate by our self-reliance and confidence. They are serving humanity as a deity by their cooking, laundry, and care of ageing parents.
Always take out some time to upgrade your skills.
Computer literacy education: Computer training has become an integral part of our day-to-day life, which does not require a lengthy education process. We can train them with minimal education qualification.
Time management: Time management is the key to success. Divide your time into a variety of tasks like your responsibility, hobby, skills. I always prefer my daytime to learn something new rather than taking a nap. which filled me with pleasure, and I feel active and refreshed.
Watching the news on a global level is also a good step to keep you upgraded with the global arena and all the knowledge and skills which broaden your mental horizon and take you away from today’s chaos and stress.
Accept your perfect body without comparing yourself with others. And last but not least, always celebrate your beauty and being a lady. Like pearls always covered in shells, diamonds are always found on multi covers.
