Ankeeta, the world loves to bully the meek. So get up and stand for what you believe in. If you like being traditional, just be. Let me shout themselves hoarse. You just be yourself and prove what stuff Delhi girls are made of.

I was born & brought up in Delhi, but married to a guy based in Mumbai. 

My husband's relatives,  family constantly criticise Delhi in my presence.  They make me feel inferior by comparing me to other women from Mumbai despite my good educational qualification. My only drawback is I'm traditional in thoughts & while dressing up. 

How do I  convince them that there are good women like me from Delhi as well.

Quite true...most wives have razor sharp memory to remember your past errors. They are also adept at aiming these at you at appropriate times and shutting you up. Be on alert from next time!

Ha ha, that's right. I have heard that one earlier too. Boys will be boys after all. And wives will be wives too. smiley

Thanks for sharing this, Hridaan.

Well, some of us women do have this habit of testing our men's feelings once in a while, just to be sure that the love is still there! But doing it all the time is too much, I agree.

Your reaction was totally rational and supportive, but maybe to her it seemed as if you didn't care about your time together. And in matters of the heart, neutrality doesn't really score high, does it?
