Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
If wishes came true what will you wish for? Here is what you have said in our #TuesdayTalkies segment.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.” — George Bernard Shaw
‘Do wishes come true?‘ — a question that has intrigued the human mind since time immemorial. Whether it’s wishing upon a shooting star; or making a wish at the stroke of 11:11; or even wishing on a full moon night, humans have always desired a little bit of magic in their lives. So, it won’t be surprising to say that sometimes, if not always, we all have wished to own a magical lamp with which we could do a little bit of rub-a-dub-dub and a big blue ‘Genie‘ would ‘swoosh’ out, nod his head off to our wish and make it come true. A definite algorithm for making all our wishes come true! Sounds great, isn’t it!
At Women’s Web, we invite readers to share their thoughts on one interesting question that is picked by the team and posted on our Facebook page every Tuesday, calling it #TuesdayTalkies. We try picking questions that would interest readers and put them in their thoughts.

The question for this week was, “You will be granted one wish, what will you wish for?” Here are 9 best responses from our readers.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
