It's always the middle class which bears the brunt of the society.
From my experience the lower class belonging to the servants and those who are BPL families do not bother what the society feels and what would be the repercussions on their actions.
Starting from the birth to marriage or even divorce they do what is best for them at that time.
Their society has uniformed trend where the husband branded drunkards and wives the servants who have to manage the family, work and adjusting with the relatives etc.
They can live anywhere and they do have all the electronic gadgets with them they even keep changing them quite often.They do not have any fixed standards to maintain in life.
I have seen some of my servants breaking away from the husbands due to various reasons like not handsome, no monetary support, chronic drinking problem coupled with wife beating or infidelity. For them they do not have to stand the pressure of what their society would say or react and what would happen to the other family members.
Bindaas , they live their life the way they want, it’s we, the middle class, which is more concerned about the society, relatives and in the end ruin our lives for no good.
Due to this many hold on to unwanted marriages and relationships. Any divorce, living in, or separately is a big taboo. The society fails to see the hardships the couple has to undergo due to this forced working relationship, superficial all good show off ends in nervous breakdowns and nothing else, the society easily shifts the blame on the couple.
In high societies, they change partners or husband like they change clothes and it becomes a head line, they are allowed to have multiple marriages, any number of wives etc and their society accepts anything and are ready to compromise as they see all as a single individual and no family strings attaches and no importance to what the others are into. This is one way like the lower class.
When it comes to celebrations the middle class tries to follow the high class and in the ‘run’ burns its fingers and not able to recover, whereas the other two classes act as per their capacity, since the middle class has the provision to go up or down, and not able to decide tries to imitate the upper class.
Any incident where the honor is in question, the higher class it becomes headlines and in lower class it’s taken as a routine but in the middle class it becomes magnified news with mirch masala added and the family is branded.
When is the middle class going to learn and change thus by not following any body and setting a standard for itself so that it benefits on the whole?
