This article is a must read. It boggles my mind that an apparently educated, liberated (?) woman could spout such nonsense. Could any human being ever support human slavery in this day and age? How could it ever be called defensible? It is such an abhorrent concept! And yet, here she is, openly advocating legalizing slavery. And to what end? To keep some philandering husbands at home? You have to marvel at the credo that brings out such jewels of thought. She even suggests places where such slaves could be obtained.
How could any person not condemn such a statement? But I doubt anyone would. Someone rightly asked if western feminists would come out in open opposition to this statement. Seeing how touchy religion as a topic is these days, I really doubt anyone will.
I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then.
I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile!
A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit).
I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog.
I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly.
I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
