Is laundry a woman's job ?

Is laundry still a woman's job.? The society has developed from stone-age to modern age and men have understood relationships to a better extent, but when it comes to laundry - in most of the cases it is still left for women to complete, leaving behind an inequality among the duties of the couple. But, here is a fictitious story weaved around the life of a modern couple who look to learn from their neighbors.

     There was once a young couple, which moved into a new neighborhood and had introduced themselves to the neighborhood. The next morning, while they were having their breakfast while watching TV, the young woman saw her neighbor boy hang the wash outside.
The wife said to her husband "That laundry is not very clean, maybe he doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps he need better laundry soap"

Her husband looked on, but decided to remain mum at this situation.

But, everytime, the neighbor boy would hand his wash to dry, the young woman would make a comment as he had not learnt to wash them and he needed to change the method of the wash and so on....

About a couple of weeks later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line, and said to her husband in a state of astonishment "Look! he has learnt how to wash correctly, I wonder who taught him this".

The husband replied "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows! and so it is with life."

What we see when watching others depends on the purity of the windows through which we look. We develop a false perception that men are not perfect while it comes to these household work. Before we give any comment it is better to check out state of mind.

This shows that men too can work perfectly and neatly when time demands, so not necessarily laundry is always a womans job, men too can do them and can do them perfectly if taught well.
