'If you're a thought
you will want me
to think you
and I do
and I did' - Scarlet's Walk (Tori Amos)

A common victimized woman in pakistan really knows how to hide her scars...how to dress her tortured self in a pretty perfect smile...she has mastered the art all too well.

Its funny how happiness is always one step above to where we stand. on one hand there may be a woman whose best day would be when her drunk cheating husband comes back home late night, he doesnt beat her up like every day...she has accepted the daily routine drinking/cheating...she would be so grateful if one night he doesnt physicaly torture her.

On the other hand a woman who has the most responsible/respecting husband...yet she might feel her marriage lacks color and passion...and hence expecting a bit more all the time then just respect/responsibility from her husband for happiness..

always one step above.

فباي الاء ربكما تكذبان

Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?

unfortunately...so many God...so many.

hey...a very heartfelt post, respected. But...that argument is the same as saying - kay, pakistan can't think of launching a space station abhi because it doesn't have the economy for it, so the probability of EVER launching one is zero, and we should be grateful that this basant, there will be no electricity breakdowns..
nahin? :s

heh, you misunderstood what i said, the being ungrateful part was only pointed at me :D...i think the examples i gave before it might have led you to beleive i was using the argument to say that everyone should actualy be happy with what they have and not 'look' for a better quality of life...not what i meant :)

Sadly it's not just the victimized women who put on a facade... controlling your emotions, supressing how you feel is part and parcel of the traditional pakistani female upbringing. Truly being yourself becomes very hard... with only a select few being chosen as the safe ones to reveal yourself to.
