“HIM” is the reflection of all the problems a man faces in his life for his family. People say that I only show the negative reflection of a man in the society so I decided to write what’s positive in a man’s reflection.
After a long hard working day, he returned home. He didn’t have dinner today, he was hungry and tired. In the kitchen, he found nothing except some leftover food.
*Afterall he was hungry*
he was now finally able to have enough sleep. He has to wake up early in the morning to go to work to earn bread for his family. He sets the alarm clock and sleeps.
It’s 06:00 a.m.
After getting a shower, he is getting ready for office.
“Maria! I’ll be late today because I have to work overtime today.”
“Okay alright, here is your breakfast.”
“I need some money to pay school fee of the children. It’s the end of the month and we’ve run out of the grocery too.”
“Oh, I’ll manage to get some money. Don’t you worry about it”
“I hope so.”
“Daddy, this shirt would look really nice on you”
Looking at his pocket
“No my son, I have so many shirts in my wardrobe. I will wear something else on Eid”
*In His Wardrobe*
Two shirts for formal gatherings.
One dress pant.
An old pair of shoes he uses casually and formally both.
Three shirts for casual wear.
*At fancy restaurants*
“I’m already full, you should order something for you and the kids.”
*At shopping malls*
After seeing the price tag.
“ I don’t like the stuff of this jacket, would you please show me something comfier and reasonable”
He works day and night to make the future of his kids bright. He tolerates the rude behavior of his colleagues and boss for the sake of his family. When he returns home, he demands nothing but peace and a few words of love.
He sacrifices a lot for his wife and children but keeps it inside. He sometimes cries but hides his tears because of MARD ROTA NAHI HAI. (Men don’t cry)
He never shares his problems with the family and faces all by himself without any complaints. He lost his mother at a very young age with whom he used to share his problems. Now he is alone but motivated towards his words.
Being a man is hard too, you cannot hug your parents whenever you want but on special occasions only, you cannot tell your wife that how much you care for her because she will never realize. Your children will start hating you because they will think that you don’t love them. You have to hide your tears because in our society men don’t cry. You have to hide your feelings inside because in our society MARD KO DARD NAHI (Men are feeling less). Your hard work will never get paid off. Feminists who say: “men are trash” need to see the reflection of a man to change their thinking.
