What is expected from a 'Sanskari Bahu'?

Issues that matter Women & Society
What is expected from a 'Sanskari Bahu'?
A 'Sanskari Bahu' should wake up early, take care of the household chores & needs of family members. She should not be too ambitious in her career & always put family over her own aspirations. This is how the society defines Ideal Bahus. What can women do to break the stereotype of an ideal bahu?

to break this stereotypes I will first of all raise my kid differently so that in future they would not follow such typical Indian rules ... I will fight for the right thing and never suppress my feelings at the same time take care of others feelings too but will not satisfy their unusual wishes.

I think if we share a clear expectation of sharing the load with our partners then it would make a difference.

I also like many other "good Boumas(daughter in law)" have tried everything but more you bend yourself more there will be load of expectations ...Nothing is enough to make people impressed who doesnt want to get impressed.

I think to break this stereotypes we have to be first answerable to us..
we always think about others dat wat other will think about us but no we should be answerable to our deeds.
so be good to all relations without thinking wat dey will give in return. when you will be good you will automatically be happy nd every good deed is always returnable.. So be good to others inshallah they will be good to u too..
