Burden not Shared


As we returned to Pune, my colleague from abroad remarked that all along the way she observed only women carrying things while men were mostly burdenless. I suddenly realised that was so true... it was always this: either a baby, firewood, or hay... the women would be carrying something or the other while the men walked along hands swaying in the air.

But after travelling for many, many kilometers we did come across a man carrying something and we thought, "Ok, there are exceptions"!

Interesting observation, indeed. Never really noticed it. Conveniently forget to notice it, rather! ;)
