We all have watched this advertisement on TV and Youtube which is so heart touching .
The gender inequality or prejudice in our society is depicted beautifully in this ad.
But now almost all women are literate and are technically qualified , willing to pursue their carrier .
So with the change in family system ( with more and more nuclear families rather then joint families ) and women pursuing their carrier the work load on women has increased many fold .
They need to do everything , they have become multitaskers , balancing their professional lives with personal lives .
So now men need to come forward and help their wives , mothers or sisters in their daily house hold chores so that they can really Share the Load .
I am taking part in the #LaundryGoesOddEven Challenge by Ariel India at BlogAdda and trying to change the gender bias norms .
Its dad will also help mom in laundry and cooking and mom will also help dad to add extra income to their savings .
So at my home Laundry had to go an odd even journey .
Earlier I used to do all laundry work .
Making separate batches for different types of clothes .
Formal wear in a separate wash , daily wear in another wash , bedsheets and towels in another wash , coloured clothes separately in bucket wash , so on .
But when my husband took this as a challenge he did a great work .
He washed all daily wears and bedsheets in washing machine on regular basis even during week days , not piling up dirty clothes for weekend washing .
Then for his formal wear he had to clean the collar and cuff with a collar and cuff cleanser and then he washed them all in washing machine .This he has done during weekend.
This way laundry work was divided between both of us , doing when ever we got time .
So this way my work load was little less and we got to spend some quality time together .
So that we can spend our weekends with our kids in some amusement parks or a short road trip where we can enjoy the day rather then I getting exhausted in finishing laundry and other work during weekends .
He also took the responsibility of ironing his clothes himself , then he also started cooking some special meal during weekend so that I can get some free time .
My kids have learned a good thing from their dad that they should share the load and every one in house in responsible for everything , means its not the mom who is responsible for all household chores , others should also help and contribute in what ever way they can .
Like my son started taking care of his younger siblings so that I can do other works .
Thus this sharing the load concept has brought a positive change in the society by men becoming more responsible towards their family and women getting more time to dedicate to their carrier along with being a dutiful wife and a caring mother or we can say a perfect homemaker .
This #ShareTheLoad Concept was much needed in our society where earlier men did not even bothered to understand what a women goes through , how does she manages everything with perfection and without complaining , thinking that this is her destiny and duty to be on her toes .
