Women, National Economy And #GiveItUp

So they say women do not have much awareness of national economy, they can not be bothered about how people are suffering due to lack of employment opportunities, how poor people manage their lives without enough money, food, clothes etc.
I bet I can prove all of them morons wrong, and that too within a few minutes!
We do know all about national economy and its intricacies. And we know that the prospects of our nation's dwindling economy depend on us women only.
Now our PM has inspired so many Indians with his #GiveItUp campaign and since we don't believe in a monopoly market, hence we have gladly 'given up' our monopoly over house work. We hire house helps for cleaning, washing, cooking and have successfully created lakhs of jobs for the poor and the needy. Now we either get food made by our cooks at home, get home delivered or go out to a restaurant ourselves, we also buy all our wafers, papads, pickles, sauces, cakes and sweets etc from the market thus creating a huge #DemandSupply market for the food and packaging industry. We have started even hiring event managers to organize our parties and functions in restaurants, hotels, banquet halls and farm houses instead of our own homes.
Earlier we would do our designing, stitching and embroidery ourselves but then we realized that we were depriving many skilled and talented men and women of their rightful work and earning, so we stopped ourselves from doing that also and outsource everything to boutiques and designers now. Every few months we 'give away' even our sparingly worn clothes to poor people. What if we have to go and buy more dresses for us....... we are so kind and helpful people, you know!
Our grandmas depended on homemade ubtans (face/body scrubs and packs) but you can't really trust their effect on our delicate skins, can we? Besides that, wouldn't all the cosmetic products companies, beauty parlors and spas have to shut shop if we continued doing all our beauty treatments at home, ourselves? And how about the beauty consultants who provide all the beauty packages within the clean and hygienic environments of our own homes? We have to take care of their roji-roti too, after all!
And so many of us insist on buying only imported stuff to balance the import-export ratio too.
Now when we do so much of introspection, intense discussions and debates about issues pertaining to national economy during our social work sessions, kitty parties, ladies club meetings and get togethers, it is bound to affect our health too. Then we need to join gyms and hire workout trainers to get back into shape. It's just give and take yaar....you lose some stubborn weight and gain back your beauty and health by some spending money but what is the value of a few thousand bucks if it helps fill the pockets of some poor gym wale bhaiyas......
Now we are so conscientious and caring people that we have purposefully stopped helping our kids with their studies because we want to fulfill our social responsibility towards our educated unemployed too. So we now rely on only home tutors, coaching classes and personal coaches and trainers for our kids' education.
A little sacrifice here and a little sacrifice there on our part can really set the nation's struggling economy back on track, you see!
Do we mind it? Naah....nation first, always!
