I have been an account student for more than five years and did my majors in this subject only. Also economics was my favorite subject. Thus a basic rule of the subject is that profit is what matters. It says that all investments should yield returns or you need not invest there. True any common person or uneducated person will also agree to these basic rules. As per the market trends you should invest in any investment or property or capital that yields good profit or belongs to you. All those investments that yield good and profitable results become hot cake and are appreciated by all. Isn’t that true? Where would you put your stake in your property or someone else’s property? I can see you nodding and thinking that am I crazy enough to state all this nonsense and ask such silly questions. You would say even a small kid can understand these basic rules and work accordingly.
All the above conversation is not useless all I want to prove is or state that the age old saying “betiyaan toh paraya dhan hoti hai.” Is either false or the laws of accounts or economics that run the world economy or the betel shop at the corner of your lane is false.
The answer is obvious you cannot dare to say that the laws of economics or accounts cannot be false. Then why are the daughters an exception? Starting with the birth of daughter let us travel the journey and try to visualize that is there any reason for her standing out of the common law? The mother endures the same pain as that of the son, or is there any concession when giving birth to daughters no or did the doctor or the hospital charged you a bit less while delivering the girl child as was so called paraya dhan.
No luck, you feed your girl child when she is hungry as you feed your boy child. Till now there was no difference so the time, money or resources invested is same. Lets not get in the love quotient as all child gets the same love from parents but daughters are more dear and near than the boys, all the love and pampering goes to them or lets say they have the upper hand here. I still remember the interview of David Beckham where he had tears in his eyes while discussing about his little angel. Getting to the education scenario girls or boys get the same education and for the same fees charged(we are not taking in to account those plans of government where to protect girl child or help her progress because of the society’s malpractices) As parents we try to give both our child similar opportunities.
Then why does a daughter stand to be “paraya” and your son be your own. I do not understand why eating at your girl child’s house after her marriage is not taken well or why does a daughter cannot take the responsibility of her parents and prove to a successful investment. A son is deemed to take responsibility of his parents even if does not want to do the same.
In an educated, civilized society if this attitude towards the female child does not end then at any point of time a lady will not get the love and respect that she deserves. We need to get in the gender equality society without any grudges in our mind. A son and daughter both should be your eyes. A daughter is never paraya she is all yours.
Very powerful article !
Such a powerful post! Daughters are always great.. kuddos to you
You go girl!! Loved your article. Keep up the good work!!
I so agree with you and your words, equality is a must!
Why to even compare daughters with dhan, aren’t they supposed to be priceless…
It was terribly helpful on behalf of me. Keep sharing such ideas within the future similarly. This was truly what i used to be longing for, and that i am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such data with USA.
Good way to go girl , a really great question you raised and elaborate
Such a beautiful post, indeed a daughter had to have a stand equal to a son!
Absolutely agree. A daughter and son are the same
Powerful article I agree with you equality is a must
What a beautiful post. I loved reading it..
I wish not just us but our parents, in-laws and so-called society too accept this. Great post!
If girls are paraya dhans then so are boys! Who knows they’ll stay with their parents or not? Dhan is dhan..to be valued.
Agree with you such a beautiful post dear.
That is such a emotional post but we should be feel lucky ki hum betiyon k parents Haj, I toh feel I’m truly most luckiest
So agree with you. Very powerful thought. Even I am against such thoughts and ideas.
Daughters are the life of the family! They are no less than sons. This is an awesome post!!
I’m getting emotional while reading this article. No words to say, brilliant thought.
Thank you for reading and appreciating our article
Being a girl I totally agree that girls are equal to ten sons…
After my marriage my hubby said to me that ” u can support your parents as I do ” …really we all should do that…. Girls are precious
Very true.. Daughters are not paraya Dhan. They are dad ki pari ,mom’s princess and brother ‘s life. Daughters are priceless.. A family is incomplete without a daughter. They are not dhan they are heart of a family..
Totally influential.. I strongly agree with you dear… Equality is must
Yes daughter are not tension they are equal to ten son….
Daughter are angles sent from above to fill our heart with unending love
Very heart touching lines…Keep it up ..
People says girls are payra dhan but I feel they are our dhan not payara but ours girls has strong bond with parents compare than son such a emotional and beautiful article
A big clap for the thought and articulating it truly. Today, both son and daughter are equally important to parents. May be this proverb used to say even though you have taken care of your daughter, she has to go and take care of other person house but that doesn’t mean she forgot her parents. I think, time has come to change this proverb to ‘daughters make parents proud’
Such a good post .Keep it up!
Totally agree with thought. I have two daughters and i agree girls are equal to sons.
Such a heartfelt story ! After reading this article I have an answer in your question itself -“IS it true that betiyaan tou paraya dhan hoti hain? And the answer is BETIYAAN TOU ASLI DHAN HOTI HAIN❤
This is definitely the right kind of question. We all know that daughters are for life, then why term them as “paraya dhan.” High time the term is dismissed.
Loved the article! You’ve raised the right question. Why is the term “paraya dhan” used? Daughters are for life. It’s high time the society does away with it!
Totally agree. I have two daughters and i agree girls are equal to sons
An article worth reading! An awesome take on daughters and what she actually feels, super touched by the blog
I too agree with you. Girls our sunshine which bring so much happiness in life. Do not know why Society give preference to boys as compare to girl.
Amazing thought! I wish every one can think like you! Seriously I dont understand why girls are always ‘Paraya’! But you know, now situation has changed a bit. Mentality has been changed. I am the only daughter and I am taking the full care of my parents even after my marriage also. Yes, definitely I have my husband’s support. But dont think everyone is so good. I have got hell lot of bad words from my so called friends and family. Special mention my MIL also.They think I am working because I have to feed my parents!
When you have compared this with world economy then I can also compare the same with ‘Give and Take’ process! When we were kid, our parents took the full care of us, fed us, gave us education and helped us to be a good human being. Then its our turn now. They are becoming older, so we son/daughter whatever it is, we have to take care of them.
**sorry for such long comment 🙁
Daughters are lifeline of parents.. the love and affection a daughter has towards her parent a son can never have..
This is much-needed article which has to discusses, i am glad you come up with this topic, Why girls are treated less then boys …
Whyyyy ? This is big question
A much needed article which has to be discussed , i am glad you come with this topic.
I too have a question with the society why there is a difference between girls & boys ?
I totally agree with you. A woman will not get respect if she is not treated equally as men. It starts from home and parents should always be proud of their daughters and support them.
What a beautiful article! I’m so glad I come from a family which supports their daughters as their sons. There is no gender inequality at my home but I have seen some families do not treat their daughters in the same way as they treat their sons.
Its actually a blind and deaf beleif we all follow. I really liked the power of this post. Actually its only daughters who understand the pain of parents and keep giving the warmth to parents when they become old.
Your posts touched the deepest chords of my heart dear and for me luckily my dad never considered me paratha dhan ?
That’s a beautiful post. I agree both girls and boys should be considered equal.
Definitely a powerful article which articulated my opinions of this difference between a girl and a boy. Both of them are born in the same way. Their education goes in the same way and sometimes girls are more educated than boys but still few parents and people around them feel that if girl enters 20 she needs to get married and if the boy crosses 30 also no one asks or forces him to marry. Wonder why is that and why always a girl needs to leave everything behind and move forward. A Big Question ?
This post poses so many unanswered questions from Indian society. A girl can prove to be a perfect investment for her parents but the societal norms speak of something else which really makes us “paraya”.
Infact a daughter is much more yours than a boy can be. And I welcome supreme Court’s orders where they maintained that a girl is also equally responsible for her parents married or not!
Infact I believe a daughter is more yours than a son could ever be! And on that note I also welcome SC’s order that every daughter, married or not, is still responsible for her parents.
