We saw a recent Bollywood release. Ishaqzade. In case you have not seen it, there’s nothing you-dont-know I’m gonna reveal either. This girl falls in love with a guy her family won’t approve and for this reason the family wants her dead. So is the case with the guy. What’s new, right? You, probably, have heard such stories a dozen times
before. You probably are thinking, “NO wonders, It happens all the time.” Yes, there have been many movies before dep
icting the same theme. It’s a national channel or a local newspaper, they daily carry one or more instances of the same pattern. I am aware of that, too. This blog is neither about Ishaq between the love-birds nor the torment they shouldn’t have gone through.
It is the families’ treatment to
their children that bothered me. I just couldn’t understand, how a man’s thinking may change so drastically as to shoot his own child, the same child he used to dote on untill before she fell in love. Yes, she doesn’t just fell in love but fell in love with a guy of diffrent religion, a guy who is his immediate polical opponent’s son. The question still remains the same, how can a father be so angry as to want her daughter dead? This is something beyond my imagination and understanding. So was t
he case with the girl’s mother. Mother asked father the same question I’ve raised. He was prudent enough to answer it with yet another question, ” did she care about my political career?”
ended there. No more questions were raised. And yet, this logic too defied my understanding. A 40-year old political career or a 20-year old daughter? what will you choose, my friend? A daughter you’ve spoiled with ur love, Who has enough faith in the same love as to stand confidently at your gun point and say, “You can’t be that angry, father…Like always, you’ll forgive me, no matter what I do.” And you reply by a shot.
They tell me they don’t understand women. And yet she is a lot more predictable than a man. Her child is the priority. Always. With no exception. she is a career-oriented woman or a housewife. Then there are men who choose career before their child’s life. What kind of a person does that make? So many double standards and not a single stand to take. It cannot be called manhood. Its butcher-ism.
