'Its a man's world,' she announced to the room with the pride and confidence of the feminine world.
The 110 Volts eco-friendly, energy saving bulb in my head blinked to life, is what she saying true? Can we really say, its a mans world?
Armed with this information, I decided to do a research on this saying. Now, I know what you would probably say, why am I wasting time on this, well, I believe this is better usage of my time than research on top-ten-excuses-Rajnikant-would give if his film flopped, right?
So let me see this, my friend, who recently had a tragic accident in his life. He lost his life as well as his sense the day he married his girl-friend. He recently came with the sad news, that he was going to be a dad. So crazy and senseless he has become, that he distributed sweets with the news.
When a girl came along distributing sweets of her marriage, the immediate question was asked, 'How are you feeling about this?' Oh my, no one asked how is the dude. Dang.
So he came with the news of being a dad, as he was distributing the news, people still asked, 'Is the mother alright?' Everywhere he went, the same question. Again I followed my duty and asked, 'Are you alright?' He still jeered on me, oh poor soul.
When the girl stepped into the office with huge belly, the first question asked was, 'Are you feeling alright?' as if there was no role of her husband in it, hello, he did have a big role in it.
In an adult male life, there are some instances when the man feels immensely proud, when he becomes a father, when he purchases his own dream car, when he urinates in the side of road and when he catches a moving bus by running behind it.
So when I caught the bus by running after it in scorching heat, my chest inflated with pride. Tired and exhausted I sat down on the available seat, a girl stepped in and asked me to get up as it was a ladies seat. They can ask us to empty the ladies only seat, they are legally empowered to do that, but are we legally empowered to ask them to empty a general seat?
Will it look good if I go and say to the girl, 'Hello, this is not a ladies seat, this is a general seat, go and sit on the ladies only seat.' I did try that and people looked at me as if I was a person who was completely drenched in potty.
When a boy shares his lifetime achievement on facebook, he gets max 1 or 2 likes, but if the girl even shares a cute puppy, she gets 143 likes, the puppy has no significance here. BTW.

So he said one day on the secret to happy marriage,
'You see dude,' he told me, 'We made a pact on our honey moon. The pact of secret marriage.'
'What? She won't kill you if you do not disturb her during her television shows?' I quipped.
'Very funny,' he replied, 'That was much later. On our honeymoon, we decided, she will take all the small decisions while me, I will take only big decisions.'
'And she agreed?' I inquired.
'Yes, ofcource, just yesterday, I gave her a big decision, Manmohan Singh should sack Kalmadi and hang him for spoiling countries name during CWG and she took relatively small decision of which cushion cover shall we chose for diwali, simple soul.'
So you see, statics speak for themselves, now what do you say, whose world is it anyway?
P.s. If you like this article, I have published a lot of white papers on man-woman relationships.
