Ab­surd logic

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

This is with ref­er­ence to ` 16 lakh crore (16-31 May, 2015). The idea of salary or eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity to be added for house­hold work done by women is ab­surd. To­day, so­ci­ety has changed a lot. Hus­bands too con­trib­ute to house­hold work, es­pe­cially in those homes where both hus­band and wife have jobs. Mar­riage means equal and joint re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. If the man is the sole bread­win­ner, there is noth­ing wrong in the woman do­ing house­hold work. She can and should plan the ex­penses and sav­ings. When she is in con­trol of the fi­nances—and her hus­band— what is the need for a law?
