Who says women don’t dig tech? From being a planner, organizer to entertainer, tablets are the 'handy helpers' we just can't do without.

Men love their machines, whether lean or mean…and so do women of this age. All of us can appreciate the difference that these gadgets are making in our life. From the fitness bands, MP3 players, sound bars/amplifiers, smartphones, tablets to the numerous kitchen gadgets to help, each of these have helped make our jobs easier.
As a woman, one goes through many life stages (and each of these pose as a challenge for us) I aim at taking total control of the situation as early as possible. Don’t we all have this innate desire to ‘settle’ quickly and get organized? Well…blame it on the constitution of our brains, which craves stability and wants to get over chaos!
So, whether you are a student, intern, employee, work-from-home-mom or stay-at-home-mom, you are sure to be dealing with the challenge of smoothening out the chaos in your life.
Your answer lies in getting yourself a gadget that really frees a lot of your mind space and offloads your work on itself.
I tested out the new Asus ZenPad 8.0 (Z380KL), and here is what I found:
Android devices have an easy interface and the Android 5.0 Lollipop version is even simpler to use. Moreover, the powerful Qualcomm Octa-core processor lets you multitask as you switch from a browser to a game or check your messages on Whatsapp.
Apart from these basic uses, you can also update the planner and set alerts on this tablet so that you do not miss out on any important activity of the day. It has a long lasting battery life that ensures that you do not miss out on any important event since you were not alerted about it on time.
It more or less doubles up as your travel companion. A unique feature of this tablet is that it has a 76.5% screen-to-body ratio which means that the screen takes over most of the space on the surface of the phone.
In other words, your movie/video viewing experience, video chatting and flicking through pictures would be super awesome. Add to this Tru2Life feature for images and superior audio features (like surround sound and Sonic Master technology) and you know your life is sorted!
If a gadget is extremely useful and looks good too, it becomes your very own style statement. Well, this cute little tablet has an 8-inch screen and is all of 350 grams. It has these interchangeable cases that you could team up with your attire or even your mood!
Coming to the quintessential question that most people ask…Why should I go in for a tablet if I have a smartphone? Well, here is your answer:
Check out this video where the #AsusZenPad played a key role in the creative process:
Apart from the numerous other advantages, I am sure the credibility of the last point mentioned here would have convinced you of all the other points too. So, treat yourself to this gadget and see the difference it makes to your life!

If you want to get back to work after a break, here’s the ultimate guide to return to work programs in India from tech, finance or health sectors - for women just like you!
Last week, I was having a conversation with a friend related to personal financial planning and she shared how she had had fleeting thoughts about joining work but she was apprehensive to take the plunge. She was unaware of return to work programs available in India.
She had taken a 3-year long career break due to child care and the disconnect from the job arena that she spoke about is something several women in the same situation will relate to.
More often than not, women take a break from their careers to devote time to their kids because we still do not have a strong eco-system in place that can support new mothers, even though things are gradually changing on this front.
No law in the country recognises enabling the rapist to walk free after marrying the survivor. However, in reality, it is something that families and communities often push for.
In the same week where the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, 11 May, saw a split decision on the constitutionality of the marital rape exception, another equally reactionary decision was handed by a divisional bench of the Supreme Court when they set aside the conviction and sentence of a man who had repeatedly raped his 14 year old niece
The facts of the case are simple. The accused, K Dhandapani, enticed his 14 year old niece with the promise of marriage and raped her several times. The family came to know of the offence when the girl became pregnant, and a case was lodged against him under the Protection of Child from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012. After trying his case, in 2018, the Sessions Court found him guilty on all three counts, and convicted him and sentenced him to 10 years rigorous imprisonment. The accused appealed to the Madras High Court which upheld the conviction and the sentence in 2019.
The girl gave birth in 2017, before the case came up in court. Despite the pending case against him, he continued to have sexual relations with the girl, and she gave birth to her second child at the age of 17.
