Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
The other woman usually faces criticism rather than empathy. What if there is the other man in a relationship with a married woman? What would his feelings be?
A few weeks ago we read about ‘A letter from the other woman to the man who will never be hers‘. It set me thinking. What if there is a woman in a committed relationship who has a relationship outside it?
These days, however, with the society opening up to equality and freedom of expression and feelings, matters which are not of a monogamous nature are treated more fairly than it would have been.
However if ever there is the other we speak of, it is usually a woman, be it in history or the current feminist times. As sympathetic as we might like to be to the second woman, would we be the same to a woman with a ‘second man’. Would the male ego of the other man ever permit them to run second? I wonder.
Also, what about this woman’s other affiliations – her husband, children, and family? How would the other man react to that? Would he be accepting of them? What effect would that have on the relationship?
Below, I would like to portray expression of a fictitious woman with a mind and heart open enough to explore that side of hers…
Do I really need you, or it’s just care
Are you my rising sun at the horizon
Or just a tiny star in the night sky bare
Does it not bother you that I have a family at home
Does craving for your company, make me a lesser wife or mom
You are with me in the laundry room, in the kitchen when making tea
All my life’s mediocrities get a little better because of you and me
Can I tell you ‘I love you’ and keep you forever
Or you will need to leave for there is little space and breather
A castle of dreams it is and it shall be
With a splash of reality to last an eternity…

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
