"Men don't cry", "Men don't ask for help when in trouble(they seldom ask for Directions for example)" these are some Stereotypes which come to mind when you think about traits of men. Some of the lesser discussed traits, but which are conditioned almost indelibly into a mans psyche 1) A man hides and tolerates abuse from wife, since if known to public, he will be seen as a sissy, a cad, a spine-less being 2) He does not discuss his domestic problems with others, he won't even be really interested in helping fellow men in domestic abuse situations, even if he is able to(since that would earn him a label of anti-woman, and he will be ostracised by feminists and possibly denied the company of beautiful Power-Babes!, and most certainly ridiculed by foul-mouthed internet stalkers).

See how Chivalry is conditioned and taught to both Men and Women right from their childhood, and how some men feel obliged to stay in abusive relationships with abusive wives/partners Article: Stephen Hawking and the burden of western chivalry .

Message in the Bottle... to my Daughter

This is the message I am unable to give you in person, but the same would be an answer to many of your Questions.

Why did I leave you, why didnt I keep in touch with you: I was forced to keep away from you since I didn't want you to be brain-washed about me, and in the process develop wrong ideas about the world and relationships. By explaining everything in detail here, I dont want to risk the above, myself, so I will try and tell things to you in person whenever there is a chance.

Did u have an improper phase of growing-up: You just had an unusual childhood, with no father around but thats not improper- there are a lot of children growing up without fathers, and many of them have went on to have a full life. Life does not always present itself to one, as it did to another- we all have to make do with what we have, like I did, and be positive about life. When something is not there, there is always some other thing which is going for you, realise that and carry on.

Will I be happy to have you back in my life: Oh yes, by all means, I am waiting for such a time when you realise that your father is not a bad man who left his wife and kid for his selfish motives. We will find ways to be together and to catch up with lost time together. I am waiting for you to be ready to meet... do not have any doubts about that. I am waiting with a smile.

Till we meet...... my wishes are with you.

yours lovingly
