Carrying forward from Akhila’s post today.
Why do stories of women characters in our mythology don’t usually have a happy ending? Why are their feelings regarded as shady and never consented?
Sita, Draupadi, Amba, Shurpnakha, Meera or even Radha for that matter had to endure hatred, humiliation, sadness, guilt, blame and/or a mysterious demise (all or parts of these) even after they loved with a pure heart.
Why does a woman have to be synonymous with sacrifice and prejudice? Why aren’t men put through any such kind of character assassination?
