Have you heard about that guy who was the Vice President of the NYA some years back? Yeah he and his wife split up. I hear it was because she wouldnâ€™t go out much in the community. You know, events and stuff. No, itâ€™s because he hurt her. I hear that she wouldnâ€™t listen to him or anyone else. What are they doing now? Have the come back home?
Have you heard about Jaimin? No, why, whatâ€™s happened? He only got married a month ago and sheâ€™s pregnant already. Do you think she was pregnant before they got married? Who knows? All these modern relationships!
What about Rinki? Did you hear about her? Oh no. I like her. Whatâ€™s happened? Well, sheâ€™s been going out with a non â€“ Indian and has fallen for him! Push has come to shove and theyâ€™ve parted. Thatâ€™s good isnâ€™t it? Now she can settle with one of ours. She wonâ€™t be any good to anyone at this rate. Sheâ€™s had a nervous breakdown because of it all.
You heard about Bijal? Which one? The one from Tanzania. Sheâ€™s about 60 years old. Oh I know. What about her? Well, sheâ€™s got a problem with her son in law being non â€“ Indian, she has a problem with her nephew marrying someone whoâ€™s been divorced before but she was engaged herself, before she got married to Ronak. No? Really? Yep. And then she left him for someone else that she was in love with! What a hypocrite.
But the world is full of it. Full of this type of news. It makes it to the front page of various newspapers & magazines, soaps are made about them. Books are written giving many gory details.
So what can you do?
The stance you can take doesnâ€™t have to be confrontational or even verbally expressive. There are many ways to express an opinion without speaking.
What do you think?
Is it worth considering?
