why are there no holidays( public holidays/pension for a house maker(house wife)?

is she a free taken for granted all time help, 24X7 all 365 days?

i know that this may nt be so in every household. i am sure in many families the other members do help and are concerned about her…

but sadly in majority of homes she doesn’t get leaves/holidays and retirement benefits either?

it is worse in career women who play a multi tasker? in spite of hired helps she is the one who works maximum in a family?

are we taking advantage of her love for the family and she slogs for her family members?( i know she may not mind it bcz of her love) but doesn’t she need some break…from all this domestic drudgery?

why doesn’t govt provide house wife’s pension/benefits??? being a home maker is a busy profession too?
@dove: one mothers’ day out of 365 days? is tht enough?

then there is one fathers’ day too???

btw i am no member of any women’s liberation! 🙂
@ brendan : the scenario varies as per the country/culture..so u cant generalize saying that no one is forcing her to be a home maker…in some countries women are forced to be so!
thnx for the response.

Which policy should I invest in?

I am 27, and planing to invest Rs. 25K – 30 K in policy’s annually . Till now I am having LIC’s ULIP policy (for 10K), which is running into its third year. But planning to stop it after few years. Apart from it, I dont have even a basic medical policy. Neither do I have any basic idea about tons of policy’s available in market !!

So dear friends, guide me in following matters:

My basic requirements are: life cover, medi claim (which includes accident cover also i suppose), post retirement benefits (planning to retire at 55+), and flexibility to surrender policy with minimal damage (will keep policy of atleast 13 years).

Friends my question is, whether to buy different policy’s to suit my requirement ( i suppose some of my requirements can be clubbed together) , or get some policy with all that in it ( i m not sure if there is 1 with all that) ??

Also, by seeing the resent up and downs in market i m not sure is it best to invest in policy which has 100% proportion in market .

Please HELP
