International Men’s Day.

I got a phone call this morning from a lady friend from Bengaluru. As soon as I saw her name flashing on my mobile phone, I answered with “Happy Holi” instead of the usual greetings. She got quite annoyed that I was greeting her for a festival that neither of us celebrate and berated me for not greeting her for Women’s Day. I apologized and remarked that I did not know that it was Woman’s Day today.

That brings me to the topic of this post. There are days, promoted by various vested interests like florists, greeting card manufacturers, couriers etc for all and sundry. How is it that there is no Man’s Day?

I think that this is discrimination of the highest order and conceited sexism in reverse. I am sure that my male readers will agree with my thought.

What do my women readers have to say to that observation?

SD I hope that you are reading this post and will respond!
