I will trace the history back starting from today to let the Feminists and those aspiring Gender Equality learn from the Maestros themselves.
All the North-Easterns States of India symbolise and Eco-Feminist locale, where the nature still remains unexploited and unexplored. Along with all the picturesque scenery to mesmerize you, North-East stands as the living and thriving proof of Matriarchal influence.
Shillong (as I visited this place and experienced the anthropological setup first handedly here) is a Feminist's Paradise.
There the matriarchal setup unfolds itself in every household with men staying at home and taking care of domesticity and children while women are running Shops, Cafes and restaurants. There women are the financial and family head and men dread before turning into drunkards as their survival reins in the hands of the Ladies of the family. The matrilineal setup ensures that birth of a daughter is celebrated and property is bound to go to the youngest daughter of the family.
Where as a woman you feel that air carries freedom along with oxygen and you feel warm and healthier even in the minus temperatures..
Where just by being there on New Year you feel New Year's resolution is complete.
