(As told to Pooja Priyamvada)

My upbringing was traditional and I never interacted with men

I grew up in a traditional family in the hills of Uttarakhand where girls are raised in utmost discipline and there never is any room to question the age-old beliefs about customs or traditions.

After primary school, I was shifted into a girls-only school and in the village too we weren’t supposed to interact with other boys except for brothers, cousins, uncles and family males, and in that too there were a number of rules ever since I turned 11-12. Never be without a dupatta other than when you are sleeping. Don’t make eye contact with any men and speak as minimally as possible in their presence.

  1. I feel like a mirror has been placed before my eyes, what my future will look like.. Just the difference is I am in my 2nd year of marriage, still did not consummate. I am having second thoughts on my marriage right now.

  2. I led a sexless married life for 16 years, and then I strayed. My husband used to blame my ‘looks’ and ‘figure’ for his disinterest. Apart from this, he is an incorrigible flirt, compulsive lier, a heavy drinker and chain smoker. When I strayed, I realised that a man, who was better than my husband in all respects, found me totally desirable in bed. The relationship didn’t last, but it gave me a lot of confidence, and I emerged out strong. I should have walked out of the marriage while I was young. Maybe life would have given me a second chance. But like all Indian women, I was unsure, indecisive, and scared of society. No regrets today, as I have had my share of fun, and grown old now. I would suggest it’s best to dissolve the marriage in such cases.
