The modern Indian woman has a lot on her plate. From juggling home and career in metro cities to fight for better opportunities in small towns and for some, struggling for the basics. Women, now are expected to be bread-earners and to deliver on the personal front too. Honestly! It is a lot on her plate. Bollywood Life EXCLUSIVELY to five women from Indian TV to know what was their biggest challenge...
I feel the biggest challenge for a woman is to balance a career and home. At the same time, I feel it is very wrong on part of people to look down upon women who are ambitious and want to have successful careers. No one expects a man to multi-task and deliver on all fronts like they do from a girl. I am blessed with a supportive family that has always encouraged me. I think women should seek support from those who support them and turn a deaf ear the misogynistic lot that is present everywhere! The best part is that I have met men who have been very supportive all through.
I think the biggest challenge is not to fall prey to competing with male counterparts. As a woman, I feel it is challenge to juggle strenuous career and the successes that come with it. This happens because you face situations where you want to maintain a balance in your family life.
I feel it is a huge challenge for a modern Indian woman to tell people that she is someone who believes in moving with the times. Giving people an understanding that she is contemporary in the truest sense is a huge thing. Talking about the entertainment industry, I feel men have an upper hand when it comes to content and pay packet. Viewers are ok with men doing certain stuff but a girl is frowned upon if she takes on the same role. Also, I feel pay packets for female artistes need to be better.
Well, we women have accomplished a lot and can do anything. However, a majority of people feel we cannot achieve this or that. I feel the biggest struggle for a contemporary Indian woman is not to fall prey to the idea of 'overdoing' things just to prove a point. That has to stop. We work hard and harder to show that yes we can do it. At times, it is not necessary.
