Girl Claims Her Aunt Cooked The Entire Day Before Cancer Operation For Family, Desis React

If you think about it, our society has very twisted ideas about love. A mother is supposed to go out of her way to care for the family despite her deteriorating health, a wife is supposed to forgive her husband for his abusive behavior, kids are supposed to respect elders even when they aren’t respect-worthy – these ideas sound unfair but they are firmly established in our mindset.

For example, one girl took to Twitter to claim that the day before her aunt was to undergo an operation for her breast cancer, she spent the entire day cooking for her family. She was basically stocking up on the food so her family could eat on the days she’d be recovering.

As the tweet went viral, it gathered two different types of reactions from people online – one set of people believed that whatever she did, she did it out of love for her family.

Another set of people urged others to not romanticise this behavior. Many highlighted how this wasn’t “love” and that women shouldn’t be burdened with household chores in the name of ‘love’ or ‘care’, especially when they are unwell and need to rest.
