The ‘My Choice’ video has definitely garnered lot of views and Twinkle Khanna in her latest TOI column has rightly picked up the issue.
In the column, Twinkle speaks about her tea session with mother-in-law and soon the topic crops up when her mother-in-law suggests her to prepare a lunch menu for a family get-together. While her mother-in-law says, “Beta, now if I tell you that you should also know how to cook a little, you will start with this new ‘My Choice’ thing. I went to the club yesterday and all my friends were saying that their daughters-in-law have recorded this video and play it at full volume. They were showing it to me; Hai Bhagwan, all these big words, ‘I am a snowflake, you are dandruff, I make brain freeze, you make head itch’. Beta I want to ask you, is this all you girls think about? Sex before, sex after, when do you find time to work or look after your children?”
Twinkle views her point saying, “Mummy, at the very least it makes people think about women and their choices. What choices did you have when you were younger? You had to stay at home, then get married, have kids and by the time you were forty, life was at a standstill; at least women can try different things now.”
The entrepreneur and columnist very sharply writes about the video in her latest column and embeds her point of view.
