Headlines do not appeal to the head

I am lying if I say I am not exactly a newspaper freak but headlines these days are freaked out. Some are so categorical that if they refer to politicians or political parties they just astound to the extent eyes ogle out or ears grow out of proportion that's obviously bad even for a caricature. 

"For women more degrees mean less pay"
means women should shun education or women are underpaid?

"......hoopster..........jewellery con
means basketball leads to conning or vice versa?

"......6 killed in factory fire"
sounds better than placing "Factory fire kills 6. 

"Election forecast - AAP plays spoilsport for Cong & BJP"
Cutting costs make a sports reporter a political expert. When were Congress or BJP on the 'high five" list to be 'bulldozed' by a popular party. As a matter of fact all three are quizzically placed now in Delhi.

Those three strong women are alive and kicking 

Woman 'A' well past her 60s lives like a grass widow. But a grass widow hopes that one day her man will come back. This woman with five growing children one fine morning finds her husband leave for the Himalayas with an appeal - 'Don't come looking for me'.

Woman 'B' stumped by the mishap of a fire in the factory. This compels the husband to leave home faced with bankruptcy and subsequent 'mental' depression. The woman strong enough to make do  whatever little she had rears he two children worthy of living in a 'decent' society.

Woman 'C' wakes up one fine day to see her 70-year old husband leave the house without notice. The cause being two 'warring' sons left the old man shattered who left just like a lost Zombie never to return.

None of the above husbands are dead but each left a home and hearth in the hands of a strong woman.

Lost wives in a jungle of drudgery, strangers, vigilant social animals, added responsibility, etc.

No, I don't mean to glorify women but families can be run by a single parent, especially the weaker sex.

Lo  behold - a close relative deserted by his wife who left with a 'decent' maintenance. Harassed husbands also exist - call them 'fodder' husbands for hungry (angry) wives.
