Lessons In Defiance

As the few regular readers I have would know, I seldom reblog. This post by zenlikefuck is definitely worth a read though.

About hbhatnagar

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.

    • It surprised me the first time I heard that women face this on a daily basis. I was much younger then, and a lot more idealistic…. It’s a shame.

      • Even some ladies support it, not just men. That is even more shameful. “You are a girl, act like one”, “you are a girl, you can’t do it”, and even the abuses that daughter in laws go through from their mother in laws. Even at my workplace I was told once “you are a girl, you can’t do it”, “you are a girl, you don’t know much about this topic”. I put down my papers saying I can’t work in such an environment.

      • You’re a girl, you don’t know much about this topic? What was the topic that requires a Y chromosome to get at the heart of? Madness, I tells ya!

      • True that! It was all ego I guess. I was the only girl in our team. They couldn’t stand it that I knewโ€‹ about the topic better than them. ๐Ÿ˜‘

      • Human pyschology, never know how, where, when and what goes on in a person’s mind ๐Ÿ˜Š
