Chin Chiari and his Sister
Chin Chiari and his family lived in a village. One day, some English speaking ladies came to the village to talk to Chin Chiari’s father. He didn’t understand anything the ladies said and asked them to speak to Chin Chiari.
The ladies were very happy to learn that Chin Chiari spoke in English. They praised him and called him “cute” and then they pulled his cheek. Chin Chiari smiled and told them that he didn’t like make-up of any kind.
The ladies asked Chin Chiari to let his sister come with them to the city school. She could become a doctor or an engineer. She was wasting her time knitting and gardening and serving food to the men.
“She like plant. She take care of it”.
“Then she could come and study botany in the girls’ university”, the ladies told Chin Chiari.
He liked the idea and asked the ladies whom his sister would serve at the university.
“Nobody sweetheart. She will live like a queen and then one day become somebody like us”.
“Then I not sending my sister to city”.
He told them that his sister liked to serve and he will not take away her happiness from her.
The ladies told Chin Chiari that gardening and knitting and serving men is a secondary job and that a woman should not be a slave.
“I go to mountain and cut tree, chase animal and build home in rainy season. I superior to my sister”.
“There you go”, the ladies told Chin Chiari, “you are being sexist, so unfair to your sister”.
Chin Chiari told them, “My sister knit bed and take care of plant vegetable. She make new food and serve us. She superior to me”.
Chin Chiari continued talking. “My sister superior in her way. I superior in my way. You want to know more?”
The ladies told him knitting and gardening and cooking were menial jobs and even men could do them. There was nothing special about them.
“Sometime my sister chop wood and I make food. But my heart ache for mountain wood and her heart ache for plant”, Chin Chiari told them.
The ladies started talking between themselves and used words like “sexist” and “men are pigs”.
Chin Chiari went to his home and got a heavy and pointed wooden stick. He told the ladies, “There is wolf behind you. Take the weapon and fight him”.
The ladies shrieked and ran away while Chin Chiari took care of the wolf. Then his sister served him food and they ate under a tree.
