After his tweet went viral on Twitter, people hailed the KIA for taking men’s homely tasks under consideration and introducing such facility. In today’s generation, both men and women equally responsible for their household duty and taking care of a baby is also one of them.
Men do change diapers and do house chores. There is nothing wrong in doing our house work. There is no rule book on this planet that says these are the jobs of a women. Parenting and household are to be shared equally. I may be wrong in in a patriarchal society, but I don't care.
