A fraction in mathematics is called ‘bhinn’ in Hindi. It can be a proper fraction like 2/3 (less than one) or an improper fraction like 3/2 (more than one). Here Anamika takes ‘bhinn’ as a metaphor for women. If she is too brainy (top-heavy), it is considered un-lady-like. Only if she remains traditional and confines herself to raising a family, is she lady-like. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
