Rabri Devi, Mother Of 9 Children, Wants “Well-Cultured” Daughter-In-Laws

What's in a culture?


Cinema hall aur mall jane wali ladki nahi chahiye. Ghar chalaane wali, bade buzurg ka aadar karne wali, jaise ki hum hain, waisi ladki chahiye (I don’t want cinema hall and mall-going girls. She should be one who can look after the house, respect elders, and manage outside work, just like me).” quoted the Times of India.

Rabri Devi, three-time accidental Chief Minister of the sad state of Bihar and full-time wife of former Chief Minister and present out-on-bail disqualified MP Lalu Prasad Yadav, wants well-cultured wives for her sons Tejashwi Yadav and Tej Pratap Yadav.

She considers mall goers and cinema watching women as uncultured. I don’t blame her. It is bad for a woman to spend time outside the house. After all, why go outside when you can hang out in the house and have nine kids instead?

That’s fun and entertaining.

Isn’t it creepy for a son when a mom wants a daughter-in-law who is just like her? Why would someone want to marry a woman that is a carbon copy of their mother? What sort of incestuous fantasy is this?

The concept of ghar-chalane-wali-bahu is beyond my understanding. You want your son to do no task and his wife to do all the work? Well, good thing is that your sons already have the practice of doing nothing, and ruining everything. Kudos.

Coming back to the mall-going part, Rabri Devi has 7 daughters. I hope none of her daughters have ever visited a mall or went to the movies. I hope that Mrs. Rabri Devi herself have never gone to the mall.

And if they have, then I’m sorry but you all are uncultured animals, and I have nil respect for mall-going, movie-watching women. Women belong to the kitchen, they should not go outside the house or become chief minister of the most backward state.

Okay, let’s not bash her totally. What we miss here is the message she wanted to convey subtly in her statement. Guys, she is promoting online shopping. Don’t go to the malls, shop online. Digital India! Indeed.

On a different note, it is disheartening to see that one of the most influential families of the country believes in nonsense notions. A country where the development of a city is measured by the number of shopping complexes and multiplex it has, we have leaders who believe only men should have unrestricted access to it. And a woman might get corrupted.

I’m not saying she is the only person who holds such belief. But being a person of mass appeal, one should not say things which hinder progressive thoughts and in turn, gives motivation to others to believe that they are not the only persons who don’t like independent women. A former chief minister should not share or show the same degrading opinion as that of an uneducated & illiterate rickshawala.

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” – Frank Zappa
