#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
Each one of us should have a purpose in life. We should not just let moments slip away but make beautiful memories.
Life is a mystery for those who are in search of hidden treasure. Life is a puzzle for those who want to solve it. Life is an experiment for those who wants to explore it. Life is not about finding the answers to all the unsolved questions. Life is not about just breathing, inhaling O2 and exhaling CO2 and finally lying down on the death bed one day. It’s been rightly said that, ‘Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away’. So, create moments, paint them VIBGYOR, take a snapshot of it and preserve in the wardrobe of memories.
I know all of you are damn busy in your lives, doing chores. But let’s take a pause and say ‘Hi’ to life; the life which we have always dreamt of, the life which is knowingly or unknowingly, just slipping away from our hands. Are we really fulfilling the purpose of life or simply ignoring and letting it go?
‘The purpose of life should be a life of purpose’- holds good for one and all. If you don’t have a purpose, then what are you doing till now? We all are here with a specific reason. The only difference is, some find it at an early stage, some take years. We all are here for a short period of time. So, let’s just live in the very moment. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Take a deep breath. Hold your head high and go for a face to face battle with the challenges of life. I know life is quite uncertain, but let’s embrace this uncertainty and prove our mettle in this battlefield.
We all are here to do something, to achieve something great in our own way. We all have that potential within us. The only thing is, we need to dig a bit more, dive deep within ourselves and confront the real ‘we’. If you are not giving it a chance, you are not letting the divine power hidden within you to unfold, which can do miracles.
Your purpose is not just to fulfill the purpose of others. Go out, find some meaning, add some value to your life. My purpose here is to regain full control on myself and my life, make it beautiful, yet meaningful. Yes, to reboot and reborn with a better version of me. What’s your purpose?

What lessons will we learn from the wrestlers' protest? Will the young girls have the courage to speak up against evil after they hear the deafening silence of support for the Betis?
On the 28th of May, Indian wrestlers Sakshi Malik, Vinesh Phogat, Sangeeta Phogat, Bajrang Punia and others were forcibly evicted from their protest site at Jantar Mantar. They were arrested, and severe charges were slapped against them.
Newspapers, that a few years ago, had carried photographs of these wrestlers proudly holding their medals draped in the Indian flag, were now splashed with photographs of these wrestlers being forcibly dragged into police buses. The wrestlers were protesting against Brij Bhushan Singh, an MP and president of the Wrestling Foundation of India, accusing him of sexual misconduct.
A similar case of molestation rocked US gymnastics a few years ago, where Larry Nassar, the team doctor, was accused and finally convicted of sexual abuse. The victims included Olympic medallist Simone Biles. During the trial, several lapses by the USAG and MSU in investigating the accusations came in front.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
