Unfortunately, men and women in our country are still expected to choose their careers on the basis of their genders. No matter how successful a woman is, she is expected to be responsible for all the household chores and a man in the kitchen is not considered to be ‘manly’. But most of the couples do not believe in such stereotypes anymore, thankfully.
While we are surrounded by so many absurd stereotypes, there are some people who make us believe that the coming generation is free of these biases. We recently came across the story of Rahul Nair who did the sweetest thing to help his wife Moumita Nair. Talking to Humans Of Bombay the husband mentioned that he was never a great cook. The only thing he could cook was Maggie and that too not a perfect version, but seeing his wife juggling her work, cooking and raising their son, he wanted to help.
As he began noticing the stress behind his wife’s smile, he knew that the least he could do was help her cook. “I felt a bit useless just chopping vegetables and switching off the gas. It was barely helpful, but it was all I was capable of,” read the post.
He took a 6-month break from his work to learn cooking and raise their son so that he could help his wife. Isn’t that wonderful?
“She didn’t know that was the reason, until one day when I decided to surprise her and cook a whole mutton curry meal for her. I used tutorials and somehow managed to make it -- it took me 4 hours! When I served dinner that night, she thought it was from a restaurant,” he further added. The evening was made even better after Moumita declared that it was the best mutton curry she'd ever tasted!
Since then Rahul has taken up a job with shorter working hours so that he can come home and cook for his family and spend time with his son. He said that he is loving this change in his life but the best part, for him, is to watch his wife eat the dinner he made with a big smile on her face after she comes back from work.
Now, isn’t this couple goals?!
