Nowadays, there is a new product in the market known as "beer shampoo" whose ad depicts that using this shampoo is a symbol of a true manhood. This strategy has worked so effectively that the product has developed a great demand in the market. Almost everyone is thinking of trying it once. Anyway, the topic of this article is different. The discussion is not on this ad; In fact the purpose is to think upon the true qualities of manhood.
In Hindu mythology, there is a great personality known as Lord Hanuman. His muscular physic and high intelligence quotient makes him an ideal God of many youths. He is admirable not only for his physic and intelligence but also because he was a man of great character. He had tremendous respect for women and considered them as mothers or sisters. Thus looking at all his qualities, it won’t be wrong to consider him as a great example of ‘Mard’.
Now all the men must think about it for a while and ask themselves: “Do you respect women?"
Relax guys... you are not asked to treat every woman like mother, nor are you forced to treat them as sisters. But is it not possible to treat them with appropriate care and respect?
That first paragraph of 'beer shampoo' is not just vaguely written. It is brought into picture to make men realize that they are influenced by what they see. And that is why the major part of the blame goes on movies, adult-websites and all the other forms of media that show improper behavior between a man and a woman. There are so many movies and websites which show men as superior being than women and treating them like objects. What makes this worse is that women are shown enjoying such treatment from men! Hero stares at her, and she is smiling; Hero flirts with her, and she is enjoying; Hero touches her, and she is shown moaning. All these false depictions give incorrect ideas to men about women and encourage them into a wrong behavior.
Indeed, there is also another side of the coin. Neither all man are bad, nor are all woman good. But even if she seems bad, that doesn't mean one should misbehave with her. What most of the men think is that: If a woman is talking to them in a friendly way then she is interested in them; if she is wearing revealing clothes then she is always open for affairs. Well, this mentality may work in movies and novels, but very rarely in day-to-day life. In most of the cases, it leads to embarrassment. Hence, men should be very cautious and gentle with their behavior wherever they go; whether it is office, society or college.
Oh men! Work hard, be genuine and achieve such an impressive mind-body personality that women get attracted to you.
Be smart and not pervert!
Be ‘Mard’, not a ‘Sar dard’!!
