Boy! The place of women in Indian society has always been the dicey one, they have to take responsibility of their own actions, control their own feelings, behavior, thoughts as per the dictums of family, religious texts and their interpreters. Not only that! They have to take liability of their husbands and other men too!
If you are childless it is your responsibility. If your husband is wayward it’s your responsibility. If your son is wayward you are a bad mother. If a ghoul attacks you you must have tempted him or done something idiotic so he was able to do that! The list will go on and on. Unfortunately this mindset is still not gone, it just rears its ugly head whenever it can.
