The journey of a mother watching her son grow from a naughty brat to a responsible human being.
Walking along the sandy beach ,
the cool breeze playing it’s song on the gentle waves
a prayer arose from deep within
may this beauty be ,
in your life my little one.
I am sure you heard
as you grew within
and felt your mother’s love
and dearest wish ,
that when you come into this world
you are met with only God’s supreme grace.
As I walked on I spoke to you
my unborn baby
and today as you leave me behind
to venture out
into the vast unknown
I am proud as can be
but I am also a tad sad.
Yet my son all will be well
if you’ll always hold your head up…high
and walk through the ways of life
with courage and truth by your side.
That is all I wish
that is all I want
and if you promise me
that you’ll always be
a good human being
I’ll part from You
with a smile and an easier heart.
Love you my son,
love you a lot.

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.
A married woman has to wear a sari, sindoor, mangalsutra, bangles, anklets, and so much more. What do these ornaments have to do with my love, respect, and commitment to my husband?
They: Are you married?
They: But You don’t look like it
Me: (in my Mind) Why should I?
Why is being married not enough for a woman, and she needs to look married too? I am tired of such comments in the nearly four years of being married.
I believe that anything that is forced is not right. I must have a choice. I am a living human, not a puppet. And I am not stopping anyone by not following any tradition. You are free to do whatever you like to do. But do not force others. It’s depressing.
