On the occasion of Children’s Day, I thought of gifting something to my daughter. Almost half a day of dedicatedly wrecking my brains, I concluded “TIME” would be the best gift, that she would adore.
My dear daughter, ever since you turned 6 months old, I know I left you in the hands of a trusted nanny and through all the playgroups and your toys and gadgets, you still despised me leaving the house, and greeted me with an amazing smile when I would come back.
I have always felt guilty of not being able to give you enough time, though I try as much as possible even if it means having a really busy weekend. I still try beyond my energies to keep up with your demands!
My afternoon naps are always disturbed by your incessant questions and requests to tell you a story and still, it’s my favourite place to be!
I have to confess something. Slowly you are growing up to be this lovely person and it reinstates my faith in my capabilities as a parent. During my last vacation, I got to know you a little better. You have developed an amazing fashion sense and influenced me too during all our shopping trips.
Your faith in my strength as a mom, is getting stronger and your belief, that I can make everything right for you, makes me feel stronger than ever. In you, I have found a perfect companion, who shares my interests of exploring and satiating my curiosity by exploring what this world has to offer.
Everytime I see you smile I am filled with surreal energy. Hope you don’t let the twinkle in your eyes dwindle with the expectations of this world.
I love you my little girl and more than you, I love the time I spend with you because it helps me to connect with myself.

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.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
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?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
