This is just what I observed recently. Pregnancy is such a proud status for women, as it is believed that a woman is complete when she gives birth to a child. But my heart bleeds when I see some pregnant ladies' do not bother attitude'. This is regarding the way they dress up causing pain to the baby. One lady in her thirties was wearing a tight tee shirt and half pant with no dupatta or odni or shawl to cover her bump, during the early morning walk. She must be in her 6 th or 7 th month pregnancy, so casual was her look and I felt bad for the baby. Frankly speaking it is better to wear loose fitting dresses at the time of pregnancy so that the mother and baby feel comfortable. Such a proud time is taken so casual that even if she boards a bus would anyone give her a seat is doubtful. I know many of my friends will be up in arms against me for this comment. I only talk about her tight dress, a mother should be happy and delighted to be carrying a child in her womb! Today it's a woman who is in her forties, so casual with a thin tee shirt and a tight leggies with no dupatta or shawl to drape her tummy, walking so fast. It is not a wrong guess she is indeed pregnant. The main purpose of covering the tummy by pregnant ladies is to protect the tummy from any direct impact as well people should not' cast their evil eye 'on the size of the tummy. All do not have small or big tummies, it depends on each individual. Also since the breasts start developing to facilitate breast feeds , the size may change and again to keep out of 'eyes' the chest to tummy is covered. I welcome I Lites to open the discussion in this regard.
