One instance that Parv mentioned in his Blog post made me write this.
We have said and heard enough about the ‘desired’ Dresscode policy for girls and sometimes some people initiated to be the moral police for the same. A girl should be allowed to wear what she wants to…I totally…. I mean TOTALLY support that. It’s an individual choice…. What to and what not to wear. I don’t have the right to say anything on that. But what I would like to mention here is…if we consider freedom as one side of the coin… the other one has to be responsibility.
I know that women in NO WAY invites to be raped if she wears 2-piece on a beach… or a mini skirt to a pub… or a spaghetti on a road, but does that mean we can wear anything and everything…anywhere and everywhere?? Do we have a responsibility towards others?? Yes, we do. Why am I even bringing this up…this responsibility quotient?? Well…I consider myself to be a part of society and yes I do have some responsibility towards it. We all are…aren’t we?? Imagine… you are with your family in a park and you find out that at the other end there is a couple having sex. Wouldn’t you feel uncomfortable?? I know this is an extreme example but I couldn’t think of anything else.
When we go for dinner at a relatives’ place, do we dress up like we are going for a party???
All I want to say is that there is an occasion for every dress… no body is stopping you from wearing those tank/tube tops, spaghettis or mini skirts but please re-consider if the occasion calls for it. This is Common Sense…can’t we apply that while dressing up for daily routine?
Some might think that I am trying to harm the ‘right’ of a girl…Right of wearing anything that she wants to… well if you think that way then may be you would never get my point.
Even if a guy walks out of his home in an inner-wear, people would still stare at him. Its not a matter of gender… it’s the matter of how we represent ourselves.
This is 21st Century… we shouldn’t be talking like this… we are modern.., we should be allowed to wear whatever we want to… agreed!!!
Anything that makes you look beautiful is worth it… but one should avoid anything that looks vulgar…and since when clothes have started being the ambassadors of ‘modern thoughts’??
We need to think…
