Can girls dress up like boys so often?I have seen a new trend in so many urban and metro families. Girl children, as young as six years, dress up more like the boys. For example, their hair cut is almost like boys. They always wear jeans and imitate their brothers in almost everything. The fathers dote on such girls, and if the mother tries to intervene, they are silenced by both the girl and the father.
The merry go round goes on and on. The girl does not learn even basic manners. Even those who are fifteen years old, bluntly refuse any traditional dress, even if they happen to visit a temple.
Is this trend a nice thing? Will this bring out the best in girls? Should we not give some importance to cultural aspects, which are vital to our Indian society?
