Wife-bashers, you cowards


I reached the first floor and rang the bell. The door had a little window through which we can see inside. The sound of the bell and the sound of a person falling down coincided. I saw my friend’s wife falling with a huge thud. She was in tears. She looked at me for a second and there was pin-drop silence. Embarrassment. Total embarrassment. After two minutes, my friend came and opened the door. I could surmise the situation. There had been a little war there. The woman had been pushed down. OMG. I could not sit there. I moved out ASAP. The funny thing is I saw the couple happily huddled together in a week. What a comical world!
I had been to another acquaintance’s house. The wife was being rushed to the doctor after a punch from her husband left her bleeding on the nose. Next day, she was massaging the hubby’s head as he had headache.
A good female friend of mine of Middle East origin had to take divorcé just to escape a violent hubby.
Shame on such husbands.
Only in my dreams I can try such a thing. So it went one day I gave a solid punch to my wife when she irritated me beyond boiling point. All she did was twist my left hand behind, warning, “Next time you try this, your won’t have your one hand to use for the computer.” Baapre, Tauba, tauba..what a dream!
Already, media reports claim that golfer Tiger Woods lost his tooth after his angry wife threw the mobile on him.

  1. So sad, issues and arguments are natural, it should be a healthy argument to solve the problem, not to extend it more, then will end in such violence. Handle with care!!

  5. This is a very valid topic.

    Domestic violence is prevalent across the world. In India, it hardly gets reported but so many women from all walks of life hide their bruises and learn to live on because the society's reactions are feared more than anything, other issues include family honor and all that.

    Many times, wives are hesitant to complain to anyone about this and when they do, cops and counsellors tend to dissuade them and ask them to adjust.

    The problem cannot be solved amicably or by law. It is important for the society to understand this deep rooted ugly problem, discuss issues openly and create better awareness.

    It would have been good to meet you in Delhi. Have a great trip!

  8. This is one subject I feel very strongly about. Women should speak up against it.

  9. You've chosen a sad topic but very serious one. I am with Samita and Bhagyashree on that one.

    Enjoy your family and have a wonderful vacation.

  13. Sad but it is very common...once my father-in-law locked the main grill to keep one of our wife basher tenant outside ...it was funny because i saw the wife throwing a blanket( as it was cold outside) at him from the top floor .

    Happy holiday !

  15. Women are weak. They tend to forgive easily. There isn't a way out for them. Unless of course if it gets out of hand! And it seldom does....

    Enjoy your holidays! But why would leave UAE during the winters!!! :)

  18. I expect a call when you come down to Mumbai and I am going to take you out of the usual places you visit :)

    I cannot respect women who take a beating and go on living with husbands. Yes, this means I absolutely admire your wife (Shame on you!)

  19. I too cannot imagine how such things can happen with couples! I mean two educated people (or even otherwise) do not need physical violence to settle issues among them!

    Hey not venturing towards Delhi? And OK Kanjoos I will pay. :D

  20. so difficult to believe wife bashers exist among the young! even today!

    may your dreams never come true - at least this dream:-)

    know something? that's how wives should be - like the wife in your dream.
