Do you know how to cook? What's your highest qualification? ... Do you like our son? ... Gone are the days when Indian women were asked to nod to such questions. These days Indian women face new set of questions like, have you been in a relationship, Do you have a sexual past? Or the most direct... Are you a VIRGIN?Does a woman's virginity is the ultimate bet for a successful marriage? India may have made its way to be called a developed nation but still Indians lack behind when it comes to developed ideologies.Even now Indian men get worried of their WAGS' virginity instead of their chastity. Wonder whether Adam doubted Eve's virginity?Since ages a woman's prized possession was considered to be her virginity. According to Indian culture, on the first night of marriage, a white bed sheet is laid for the couple and it is believed that the next morning, woman's mother-in-law makes sure to see blood spots to ensure bride's virginity.Such methods have now become one of the expected ways to check a woman's virginity.But with changing times, a couple's priority becomes their commitment; there has been noticed a huge increase in number of couples getting engaged in pre-marital sex.Even now some men believe that if their wives do not bleed on the first night it means she is not a virgin! Men often have misconception related to a woman's virginity.Rupturing of hymen or bleeding is no longer ways of checking a woman's virginity. A woman's hymen can rupture due to numerous reasons, extensive exercises, and horse riding, riding astride on two wheelers, or even dancing. As per study, only 40% of women bleed during their first sexual encounter and mostly women can easily hide away their virginity. According to Hindu mythological facts (Mahabharat), Once Kunti gave birth to son 'Karna' prior to her marriage and swept him away easily in river Ganges to hide this fact from the society. Many years later during the Mahabharat fight, Kunti's five son's Pandav (post her marriage to King Pandu) came face-to-face with Karan and just as they were about to kill each other, Kunti intervened and revealed to Pandav's the truth about her eldest son Karna. Upon listening to the entire truth, Kunti's second son and eldest of Pandav's Yudhistra coarsed her mother for hiding this truth from their son's and hence cursed her that never ever a woman would be able to hide away her virginity from the world. With changing times, Men in metropolitan cities have become least bothered to worry about their partner's virginity. They believe that when women have the right to be independent, and make their own choices in life then they too have the liberty to decide the virtue of their virginity.
