Bollywood actress and mom-to-be Anushka Sharma took to social media last month to announce her pregnancy and due-date alongside cricketer Virat Kohli.
As per a report in HT, Anushka recently took to her Instagram stories to pen a note on how “having a male child is viewed as a privilege” in our society. She debunked this notion and continued further reminding parents about the only “so-called privilege” there is to giving birth to a boy. Check it out:
She explained, “Of course, it’s no more privilege than having a girl child but the fact is that this so-called privilege has been viewed incorrectly and with an extremely myopic vision. The only ‘privilege’ is that one has the opportunity to raise a boy in a way that he respects a girl. That’s your DUTY as a parent to society. So, don’t think of it as a PRIVILEGE.”
She concluded by saying, “The gender of the child doesn’t make you privileged but it is actually the responsibility you owe to society to raise a boy so well that women feel safe and protected.”
