When that dad in the supermarket tells his little daughter that he will cook the chicken for dinner, just the way she likes it…that is love
When that pet chooses to sleep on top of you instead of anywhere else in the entire house…that is love
When that couple on the bike laughs helplessly because their helmets keep bumping into each other…that is love
When someone understands you’re hurting and tries cheering you in their lame, silly way and you can’t help but break into a laugh thinking how foolish, yet adorable they are…that is love
When that old man in his morning walk, gives you a toothless smile for no apparent reason…that is love
When you abruptly break into a song, just looking at the sky’s beautiful colors…that is love
When the peace and quiet of the afternoon is broken only by those chatty, chirpy birds and some kids coming home from school…that is love
When some lines from a song or a book seem to actually speak to you, because, hey! it’s you those lines are describing…that is love
When all you can think of is that life might be imperfect but it is so disturbingly beautiful, that you wouldn’t have it any other way…that is love
When all you want to do is pour your weird heart on paper, without bothering about how silly it might sound…that is love
(Mostly inspired from the way I experienced Valentine’s day.)

“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.

Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
