Changing facades of housekeeping
Do you see a paradigm shift in the way household work is handled today? What could be the factors which have contributed to this?
Being a housewife I am well aware of the finer points and subtleties of housekeeping. Housekeeping is not an ordinary job. In fact, it mimics running of an organisation where everything is important from procurement to inventory management to manufacturing to timely delivery of material or service, without creating any delay or disorder at any stage.
Earlier, women were supposed to take complete care of housekeeping and other family members simply demanded their needs and conveniences time to time. With the dissemination of education and job opportunities to all, the situation is slowly changing and other family members are also required to contribute their bit as women are also going out to attend their jobs and careers. Alternatively, those who can afford are keeping a full-time servant to do most of the jobs which the house lady was executing earlier sometimes with the help of a part-time maid also.
So there is a gradual shift in the role of women in the housekeeping and in coming times it is going to be more evident and conspicuous.
