Mira Rajput, the 22-year-old woman, living her life as a wife and modern young mother has given some insights about her life in an event on Women’s Day. In that event, she shared some of her thoughts to the audience on choosing arranged marriage, self-decision to be a homemaker, raising up her daughter Misha and her perspectives on women empowerment and feminism.

She had always been under a limelight since she got married to Shahid Kapoor. Here are some of the clips from the interview:

Perspectives on arranged marriage

“Why not? Why not? You have to meet someone in some way! It worked for us so beautifully because both of us laid our cards in the beginning. We were ourselves. We discovered different kinds between us after marriage and there was no negative surprise.”

“I understood the role I had to take and he (Shahid) understood that he had to become a part of my life. Both of us, we have shared a lot with each other and we have turned and become wholesome. It’s two halves that make a whole.”

What do you feel being married to Shahid

“At home, we are casual like any other married couple. We have fights, we get along well, we laugh a lot, we raise our child together, we are best of friends. When we step out, we are two people together taking on the world.”

Are you proud of being a Homemaker

“I am a homemaker and I am proud of the label. I love being at home. I had a difficult pregnancy and now I want to spend every moment I can with my daughter.”

“I have a set of responsibilities on my plate and my future is ahead of me. I can raise my daughter, be a good wife, and set up my home the way I like. I don’t want to spend one hour in the day with my child and then rush off to work. Why did I have her then? I want to be there for her as a mother. Seeing her grow up can’t be quantified.”

Empowerment and Feminism

“Empowerment means you have the right to choose. So it’s my choice if I want to be at home. And it’s someone else’s choice if they want to be a working mother. But both are equally valid and neither of them should be shamed.”

“Feminism isn’t woman VS man. It’s about equality. A new wave of feminism has come that is aggressive… I feel it’s destructive. There’s a new term called ‘feminazi’, which is the female equivalent of a chauvinist. I think there should be harmony between the two sexes and an equilibrium.”
