This Women’s Day, clothing brand Biba has come up with a beautiful short video. The scene is of a wedding. Two cousins – a boy and a girl, are asking each other about their marks. Next moment, an uncle comes and asks the boy about his studies. The boy replies that he is scoring well and plans on applying to leading universities for Masters. The uncle then asks that what is the point of studying when eventually the boy has to handle a household.
Now, this is something that only women in India are used to hearing. So, saying it to a young man makes a powerful statement. With this commercial, Biba is asking people to Press for Change, it is asking people to pose the same questions to men that have till now only been asked from women.
