Let's salute the single parent mother!!In life, we often see what we see in the movies. In Hindi or Tamil or whatever. It is a rather welcome sight to see strong women, who are least bothered about what the society would speak about them. If they felt that the husband was not a good guy, get the divorce done, and stand on her own legs to educate the children or more often than not, the only son or daughter. The lady is obviously highly educated and the child or children understand very well the situation.
I had known at least six such cases of women in the USA. However, when we are now looking for a suitable match for our daughter, we have identified as many cases in India as well. The woman is so bold and narrates the entire story. The boy, mostly IT professionals based in the USA or in Bangalore, is equally proud of their mother. Unfortunately, the so-called horoscope matching did not work and the families were so keen on that aspect.
However, such single women need to be congratulated. And when I thought that this was possibly true of only my community, just yesterday, I heard of one such family right here in Chennai of one woman, who thought it will be fine to divorce her husband and live single. She actually is related to one of the founders of a prestigious Chennai based group of companies.
Society evolves its own norms as it becomes increasingly modernize. When things go out of hand, to stand up and do what they feel is right. Let us celebrate their strong will and courage.
