Odisha CM appeals people not to overburden women with household works during lock down

Bhubaneswar: Odisha is going on these days through lock down. As per it’s norms people have been asked to stay at home. However, it is not a time to ask women of the house to cook food for three times a day to enjoy these days as holidays.

In this juncture Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has appealed people of Odisha not to overburden the women of a house to prepare food for multiple times.

Odisha’s COVID 19 spokesperson Subroto Bagchi conveyed the above message of the Chief Minister in a press meet aired from Geeta Govinda Bhawan in Bhubaneswar on Monday. He is briefing media on COVID 19 updates for the last few days at 4.30 pm.

Clearing the message of the CM, Bagchi said that this is the lock down which we should not want to enjoy like holidays. Hence, people should limit the number of their food. In his words, it is not a time to overburden the mothers, wives, sisters and sister in laws. Otherwise, the women, who normally prepare food at home, will be overburdened and once they will be in pressure, it would bring big problem to everybody.

Bagchi went on to explain and said that lock down time is not a time when we should opt for fresh vegetables daily, rather we should make a habit to cook the available vegetables for at least 2, 3 days so that one person from a family will need to go out of the house only once in every 2 or 3 days.

      Atlease somebody is paying attention to the work done by woman at home, which is actually not even counted “productive” from Economic point of view.
      The most unhappy from this Lockdown are men staying at home, therefore all the time either they are using mobile phones to read and comment or for chatting with friends, go get a life, do participate in household chores. One will know how a woman passes time all day at home.

    Very appropriate advice from the CM. We have seen and many studies suggest that women and girls are disproportionately affected affected by any health emergencies or disasters. It’s not only in our families but also in hospotals and health care centers, other social services, it’s women who are in the Frontline making sure that all of us are protected, and care for our wellness.
    Let’s join our hands with, extend our supports, and respect all women workforce.
    It’s a lifetime opportunity for all of us (especially for men and boys) to pay back a tiny portion of what we have received from our mothers, sisters, and all women.
    In a lighter note, men don’t need to marry to feel the pain and suffering of women. Otherthan husband and wife relationships, men are also have mothers, sisters in their families irrespective of their marital status. It requires to be a good human being, a supportive son, a caring brother, a concerned neighbor.
    Stay home. Now our families need our support and kindness more than ever!!

    It is nice to know that in this critical period, while looking after the management of so many vital departments, the CM has expressed his concern for the extra burden taken by the women of Odisha.

    It feels good to be understood and appreciated.
