The 21st Century Cinderella

When you raise a feminist daughter, fairy tales ka band baj jaata hai😂My daughter’s class had an essay writing competition yesterday and she chose to write the topic “How she would have rewritten the Cinderella story!”
As per my daughter, had she been Cinderella:
1. She would have stood up for her self-respect and not tolerated the humiliation by her step-mother and step-sisters.
2. She would have gone plain and simple to the ball. If the prince had to fall in love with her, he would love her as she is and not be besotted by her beauty.
3. She would or would not choose to marry the prince after the shoe fit her. She could lead an independent life too!
And yes..she secured third place in the essay writing competition😀
