Girls Psychology Part 1

My previous posts might have given an impression that I am a men-hating, men-bitching sort of a person who can find faults with them and everything else that they do. So maybe the impression so far has been that I am a biased person who has a war against the “men”kind.

And thus to prove to the world that I am, in a fact, an unbiased person who can be neutral and has the capability to find faults with everything, this is the new section that I have started.

The truth of the matter is that this section is a result of a conversation I heard of two girls as I was walking towards class and I realized “God.. they can be worse than guys” And thus I owe a great debt to them for this. Thank you.And now for the conversation that the two girls had that would reflect the psychology of the girls in our society.

Lets call them Miss A. and Miss S, both of them are textiles students at the the University of Karachi, aged around 22, and by the looks of their conversation can’t wait to get married. Here is more or less how the conversation went.

Miss A: My mom can’t wait to get me married.

Miss S: You don’t mind getting married.

Miss A: Well no… why would I? See my mom was saying that she will start looking for husbands for me since I am still of the age where it is easy to find (read trap) guys for marriage.

Miss S: What about Madeeha ? (Miss A’s older sister)

Miss A: Well she has crossed the age (she is only 4 years older making her 26) so its so difficult to find a guy for me so my mom and me would rather focus on getting me married.

WHAT KIND OF A PERSON TALKS LIKE THAT ABOUT THEIR OWN SISTER? OR MORE, WHAT KIND OF AN EDUCATED SOCIETY ARE WE THAT STILL THINKS THAT 26 YEAR OLD IS AN OLD AGE TO GET MARRIED?

Lets do the maths shall we? Although the stats of Pakistan hasn’t been changed for ages but people do live up to be 80 on an average, which means if girls are getting married at the age of 20 that means that they are married for 3/4 or 75% of their lives, if they are getting married by the age of 30, they are married for almost 63% of their lives, which is still more than half of their life that they can spend the way they want to single and free. So why is it that we still go on to judge a girl if she is, God forbid, not married by the age of 26?

And person who is in a professional field would know that this is how long it takes to be a doctor, an engineer, or to make anything out of yourself in a professional field. So then why is it that people who are in the field, especially girls, would not only judge others but also their own sisters.. SHAME SHAME!



Today in News…Sudan, Iran and Pakistan!

Well, today was a weird day.. and I am not saying that just from a personal point of view. There were certain items in news that got my attention and even shocked me.

The first one was about a Sudanese journalist woman who has been sentenced to be flogged as her clothes were “degrading”. The woman, Lubna Al-Hussein was wearing jeans which were considered not appropriate and now she has been sentenced to be flogged. There are voices that have condemned this and say that this is more of a government reaction towards her articles which do tend to criticize the government at times.
Apparently the government can always find a way to make those people suffer that only want the best for the country by saying what is right and true. Incidents of these sort have always been seen around the world.

The girl who became the symbol of the Iranian Protest against the rigged elections

Case in point is the post-election disaster that is still continuing in Iran. Today in Iran the 40 day mourning period would end for the family and friends of Neda Aga Soltan. Protests were arranged all around the country and the program was to gather at the graves of those who died during the protest.

The spirit of the people of Iran are still high, as they now say that this is no longer just about the Elections but about all of those innocents who have died and about those who are still in the detention center, and the government needs to answer for all those.

It feels like Iran and its government are following their own desires now and not those of the people. These are the same people who had supported the Iranian Revolution and now have spoken only when they found a fault with the system, which according to me should have been considered as a omen by the Iranian Government and they should have seen to it that where is it that they were at fault and corrected it.
