Check out 16 Return-To-Work Programs In India For Ambitious Women Like You!
Teach boys to respect girls and women at home, share in household work and follow rules. Treat them at par with girls, even if it is to make them toe the line.
Teach your sons everything before blaming someone else’s girl. Why should a girl be trained from her childhood itself so that she should get married and be sent to someone else’s house? Why should she learn to behave, walk, talk, and laugh in the perfect way?
A boy is allowed to do things the way he wants to. He can come home late at night and sleep all day (kyuki ladka hai, because he is a boy). Where is it written that you do not have to teach your sons to help you around the household? Where is it written that you do not have to teach them even basic cooking? Cooking is not to be done only by women, it should be learned by everyone for their survival. When the need arises, at least a boy should be able to cook for himself.
Teach your son who women are and what they do. Teach him to respect women and not treat them as his commodity.
Teach him not to ever raise those hands on a woman just because he thinks he is stronger and more powerful than her.
Teach him that raising a hand on a woman makes him a coward, and raising his voice to quiet her down doesn’t make him more manly.
Teach him that abusing another woman is like abusing his own mother, sister or daughter. Teach him not to look at any woman with those evil intentions because someone else might do the same to his own mother and sister.
Teach him about the various struggles a woman goes through in her life. Teach him why every woman should be respected the same way he respects his own women at home.
These teachings start at home. He will learn what he observes around himself and what he is taught from early childhood at home.
If your daughter is not allowed to stay out late, the same rule should be applied to your son too. Yes, it is good for your son as well. He won’t get into wrong things then. (Woh ladka ho kar bhi naam kharab karsakta hai, Even as your son, he can bring shame on you). If you teach your daughter to do all the household work, then teach your sons to also do the same work and help her around the house.
If every mother teaches her sons these small though significant things, it will help build her son’s morals and form part of his habits right from childhood. It will help solve a lot of issues and avoid a lot of crimes against women.
It’s not always a girl’s mistake. Teach your sons to behave.

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo.

Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
