‘Men can’t cry’, “Mard ko dard nahi hota (Men don’t feel pain)’; are just some of the things a boy hears while growing up that puts a pressure on him to be the “perfect macho man”. This societal pressure is often so much that men tend to hide their true emotions, feel ashamed if they cry in public, and often put forward a fake self to the world. This often leads to repressed emotions, and mental/emotional disorders.
In this powerful poem, Simar Singh tells how the societal pressure of “manning up” causes emotional damage to men, and how you can #UnManYourself.
