You’ll be shocked to know that the primitive India was way too very broad than the modern India. To support this, I’ve compiled a few facts that’ll prove this statement.
Ancient women had liberty to earn money and spend it the way they liked.
According to Manusmriti, there was no restriction on women to work and earn money. They enjoyed equal status as men. They were not answerable to anyone on how they spend money. They lived the life the way they wanted to. It’s sad to know that today’s scenario is completely changed.
In ancient times, men were not allowed to beat his wife and women were never forced to have s*x.
According to Mahabharata, women enjoyed high status in the society. They were never forced to have s*x. If she did not want to get intimate, nobody could force her. Unlike today when women are s*xually harassed and abused.
