Three years old toddler playing joyfully with his companions. Adults sitting on a sofa and keeping eye on respective toddlers. The said toddler bent down to take out the ball under sofa, which was hit hard by other toddler.
And after watching the said toddler bending down, a comment from an adult –
See, his SHOWROOM (chaddi) can be seen.
And a giggle.
And a thought came to my mind was – Why hiding chaddi is so important?
Brought up in Indian culture, the first things we were taught were – cover up your privates and cover up those too who cover the privates, correct?
But time has changed now. Transparent stripes of upper portion covering is a routine. But when it comes to Chaddi, ….its still a big NO. Everyone, including that three years toddler needs to be careful by not showing it even unintentionally.
Time to change our mind set while living global.
Even after living in the era of backless and off shoulders, a joking titter is always heard when the top of other private covering is being seen from tight jeans. Aren’t we ready to accept the normal thing as normal or are we trying to create an issue out of acceptable thing?
Although I too laughed hard when a colleague bent over while showing the not covered privates from low waist jeans. That’s not acceptable….he he he 🙂
Take it easy 🙂
