Additionally, the profound emotional stress of societal assumption that ‘dad is around’ has an exponential affect on the mental health of these single mothers.
“Before, I did not quite get it.”
Sandberg’s recent experience seems to have opened her eyes and has put certain things in her perspective. One of them is the shortcomings of her runaway bestseller book, ‘Lean In’.

A few Bangalore schools recently did a search of students' bags for mobile phones that are banned inside, and were shocked to find condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, etc.
When schools in Bangalore conducted surprise checks of the bags of students to see if they were bringing cell phones to school, they were in for a nasty surprise.
As this report in the Deccan Herald says, “In addition to cell phones, they found condoms, oral contraceptives, cigarettes, lighters and whiteners in the bags of students of grades 8, 9 and 10. To their credit, the school authorities handled the situation with maturity- instead of suspending the students, they informed the parents and/ or guardians and advised them to seek counselling for their wards.”
