#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
A searing account of a housewife living a life of moneyed privilege, but without any connect of body or mind with her husband; just a glorified maid in his mind.
I slipped back into my lingerie,
But I couldn’t feel your touch.
Devoid of any pleasure,
I still loved you very much.
The cocoon I lived in,
Stunted my growth and flight.
I was living in a well-lit bungalow,
But my happiness never saw any daylight.
There were days I was absolutely naked,
Still, why didn’t they see my scars?
I bet they got blinded,
By sparkly diamonds and swanky cars.
I smiled all the time,
I cracked the best of jokes.
I camouflaged pain so meticulously,
No one noticed the embers behind the smoke.
I turned into a heap of ash.
I sprayed Chanel No. 5,
Though I was treated like a can of trash.
You knew what wrong you did,
Still, you never apologized.
All I was a glorified maid,
I now realize.
Neither your body nor your love,
Nothing was ever mine.
Yet I treated a dead relation,
Like a holy shrine.
I’m glad you gave me nothing,
Neither on the bed or otherwise.
I’m gasping for sanity now,
I’d have drowned in the sea of your lies.
You took away my youth,
My innocence, my peace.
You left so many demons behind,
And that’s the reason I hardly sleep.
A version of this was first published here.

Please ensure there is sufficient investment in your future, marriage or not. Financial independence is the way to go. Always.
As you embark on the journey of marriage, I urge you to reflect on a profound message. Many of my friends have fallen into a trap and are still grappling, uncertain about their life choices.
Initially, there will be confusion about career decisions. Should you pursue a master’s degree, a job in banking, or a government position?
It is important to teach your child what’s right, what their responsibilities are, what they should be doing or not doing - but it is also important to know what they FEEL.
What parents never do, despite doing everything…
Parents do everything for their children- everything that’s within their rights and limits. From teaching good values to ensuring the best quality education, from enhancing their overall persona to providing them with all facilities possible.
But, there’s a but… there’s this one thing they forget or miss doing. That is listening to their child’s feelings, trying to understand what they feel.
