GLENBARD, IL – When it comes to our memories of childhood Bollywood movies our impressions are usually similar to the sentiment they conveyed – joyful and hope inspiring.
One Indian college student however, has realized it was all a lie. “How can I appreciate the song and dance when all I can think about is the patriarchy?”, said our student. (She wishes to be kept anonymous, as she worries about attracting negative attention from local aunties.)
“It’s just so shocking to realize how disappointed Beyoncé would be of me”, she lamented. “I think I’m going to have to switch my Bollywood movie nights to Disney nights. Nothing beats Sleeping Beauty or The Little Mermaid.”
