How many feel that Indian mothers are slightly more fond of their sons than their daughters? Mind you, I am not denying the closeness and special bond that exists between mothers and daughters. I am just suggesting that moms seem to go the extra mile to coddle their sons, reserve the best food/dishes for them, tolerate their tantrums and in general satisfy every whim and fancy of the boys with a smile on their faces. In contrast, girls seem to be left to fend on their own. Comments?
