"Life should never be spent caged inside a box. Sometimes life knocks us down lower than we have ever been, before we are able to stand up again- taller- than we have ever been". When life gives you lemon, make lemonande!

“You have lost your spark Sneha. This is not why I married you. Remember how we used to take spontaneous vacations, go on long drives and get sloshed on weekends. Now you are always tired and whiny”, Avinash had rambled on that fateful night five years ago.
“Avi I left my job to manage home, take care of your parents and our kids, one with learning disability. You can’t expect me to be cheerful always”, Sneha sobbed, tears flowing down her eyes.
“This is not how I pictured my life. I can’t spend the rest of my future caged inside a box. Roohi makes me feel alive”. Avinash had walked out, without looking back, leaving behind a broken home and shattered Sneha.
Seven years later, as Sneha was about to finish her acceptance speech on receiving the very prestigious ‘Sashakt Naari Award’ from the Chief Minister of the state, she caught a glimpse of her estranged husband from the corner of her eye. A few minutes before the ceremony started, Avinash had apologized to her and begged Sneha to accept him back in her life. Sneha reminisced how tough the journey had been to gain confidence, stand on her feet, and make peace with her situation until she had arrived where she was at present. In clear terms Sneha told Avinash that her life was now full and there was no space left for him anymore.
“And finally I would like to thank my ex-husband for teaching me that life should never be spent caged inside a box. Sometimes life knocks us down lower than we have ever been, before we are able to stand up again- taller- than we have ever been. I am blessed I could give wings to so many women deserted by their families to live a life of dignity and respect.”
As cameras flashed and crowd broke into a thunderous applause; two pair of eyes were wet again – one out of remorse and one with contentment.

A career path can never be smooth.

As a mother, Neha had always been there for her daughter. Why couldn't her daughter be there for her when Neha needed someone to talk to?
Neha was having severe problems with her periods. Her periods were highly irregular.
Once they had stopped altogether for 8 months after a long period of three years of hot flashes, and she was hopeful that her menopause had arrived. But presumably not so! She had heavier than usual period soon after.
These intermittent on-and-off intervals of period puzzled her a lot. Not that she hadn’t shown to the gynaecologists, but the prolonged period of menopause was very irritating and difficult.
