This campaign presents an interesting contrarian point of view, wherein a group of women are in agreement with the religious restriction against women between the ages 10 and 50 from entering the sanctum sanctorum of the Sabarimala shrine, at a time when there are more voices on social media platforms that seek to end all divide – no matter how ancient – between men and women on the basis of religion or society.

Though, yet again, the #ReadyToWait campaign does beg the question – Why do we need it? In the hypothetical scenario (or till the Supreme Court or Lord Ayappa himself effects a change), should women of all ages be allowed to enter the shrine, those whose religious beliefs forbid them to do so, can still continue to wait.

But, why stop others?
