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.

to me Skanskar don't have a definition if you want to take control over someone's action try tying them with the rope of so called sanskar .....waking up early should be a choice or your habit ...I dnt belive in the word itself it's just to hide cheepmindset ppl are useing to hide under it .... Sankar ki definition kahan hai kahan hai ? who defined it?

A sanskari bhu should obey family rules and to do everything with permission. Don't revert back even in laws hurting you. Never demand anything. Perfect in every household chores.

This is how the TV serial sagas define sanskari bahu..
sanskari bahu is a person who is ever ready for flexibility. House is not a military camp. Household chores are definitely important but at the same time loving it and doing it is crucial. we women started giving importance to chores than family. young unmarried maidens doesn't want to do any chores and they claim it when seeking grooms. We only connect that if we get married we will have to handle household chores....??? why we have such mindset... even Daughters can help out moms. Nowadays I hv heard saying " beti se achi bahu ..wo help to karvati hai"

sanskari bahu hahaha first of all the I n law can rectify this word to sanskari beti then rest of the other things goes accordingly for the family. As their own daughter lives in the family culture bahu will also serve them right the way they treat their girl.
