Is it hypocrisy: Saving money for son's higher education and daughter's marriage?One of my colleagues always advocates equal opportunity for sons and daughters. He always advocates giving equal opportunity for the male child and female child. I was earlier deeply impressed by his noble view.
Nowadays all of us, the so-called officers, are planning some legitimate ways during the penultimate month of the financial year to save some tax. In this context, my colleague said: "Look, I always try to save equal money for my son and my daughter. I am saving equal amount for my son's higher education and my daughter's marriage."
I have started thinking. Is my colleague really giving equal opportunity to the male child and the female child? What do the Members of ISC think?
[Clarificatory note: My colleague's daughter has performed much better than his son in the Board examination. He is saving money to enable his son to study in a private engineering college.]
