What would be the most controversial, yet important take you have about desi society?

A user on X posed this challenge to their followers, asking for opinions about every single aspect of desi society. Whether it is excessive body shaming, poor funeral etiquettes, division of household chores within family members, or wedding obsessions, desi social media users held back nothing, leaving us with some very blunt, but direly needed takes.

Your wives are not unpaid house helpers. We wish more families would understand this.


Please understand that funerals are a time when family members need to grieve. Instead of giving them space, desi family members end up doing the opposite which is tragic to witness.

Teach your sons to be the kind of men your daughters would feel safe around.

We hope more people start unlearning that talking about periods is a taboo.
