Not all of us are lucky enough to find a working organization close to our home. Most of us get to go far away to earn good or what is the point of such expensive education if we do not even utilize it for good cause. The house where you probably spend your till now life, it is not bit easy to leave out of your comfort zone to the sail in the strangest seas. Our first thought is finding a place where we can for the rest of the time we are working but the thought itself is sufficient to send chills down our spine. Read further to know why?
So, this other day I and my friend got a call from an MNC popping this good news of our selection in their management however, it requires moving down to the XYZ metro city. It was not just a good news but a dream come true. We decided to move in and our first thought was to arrange an accommodation to live. We called many societies and residential welfares. No single person consented a place to us due to stigmatic reason Being Bachelor. The landlords are very much specific about renting their houses. One of them is a big old notion of bachelor’s inviting trouble. The few places, where we almost got admitted, did not permit entry after 10 pm. Our job required working in shifts, some of it ending midnight. Where were, we supposed to go under that circumstance? The other few wanted vegetarians and what not.
Sometimes broker would set us up with the landlords which later again, turned into disappointment. Single women face another dimension of discrimination. Most modern women prefer wearing whatever they like and why not it is our freedom our lives. Many societies, on the other hand, possess this orthodox mindset, prevailing since medieval times. And wearing western clothes infects that belief system in their eyes and they do not want their children, who probably wears the same kind but they are their children so who cares, to be exposed to the venomous foreign culture. Like for real? If a single woman invites her friend over she’d termed as, pfft… characterless? Some societies do not permit women coming home late night. No Entry!!! If only people could evolve the modern thoughts just like they use modern tech.
Why finding a rented place was so challenging for singles? NestAway, a home rental company led a survey in India’s 5 most job oriented metros to find the answer. It came to light that there were many factors, such as food preference, looks, caste, religion and even relationship status, influencing one’s response in allowing a place to be rented. Finding house as non-vegetarian was tough Bengaluru and in cities like Mumbai and Hyderabad, finding a rented place itself was difficult. It was also found out that among owners and landlords, a prejudice has widespread that single men or women do not keep their houses clean but, on the contrary, the research revealed that those single/bachelors looking for home wanted a clean and tidy place and themselves were clean freaks.Although, it isn’t easy for us singles to carry out these many activities even so we do. This also showed us single breaking the stereotype. Based on many aspects and features It was concluded that Hyderabad proved to be the friendliest city for women to live in and Pune the easiest city to settle. It doesn’t mean other cities has no hope. Once a great man said, ‘you give the courage to fear every time you fail to try’. Because beyond the fear of failure lies the ocean of success.
