Join this Blogaton #NoRegrets and tell us about the time when you decided to take control of your life, guilt free.
Live life with no regrets! Isn’t this what we all want to do? But, the demon called guilt always gets the better of us as women. To help us remember that #Guilt-Free is the way to go, join this Blogathon #NoRegrets and tell us about the time when you decided to take control of your life, guilt free.
We live our life in schedules. For a working woman, whether single or married, it primarily revolves around juggling between work and life responsibilities. If she is a mother, then play schedules and school schedules add on. If she is passionate about an idea or a cause, then energies are spent in finding time for pursuing this passion. While we may think that the ‘busy’ness comes in phases, it actually just changes form and never really goes away.
So, when does one take charge of her own life?
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a go-to book to help us figure our way through as we fumble and stumble in life? Kaveree Bamzai’s book No Regrets: The Guilt Free Woman’s Guide to a Good Life is just that! It is not a self help book but a self-care book! We definitely do not want idealisms, rather, it is a book that talks about lessons from being a mother to lessons learnt from our own mothers; managing money to marriage; coping with pain and anger to taking ownership of our health and growing old.
An inspiring read, it also has advice from noted women achievers like Naina Lal Kidwai, Arianna Huffington, Sudha Murthy, Smriti Irani, Twinkle Khanna, Farah Khan and Sania Mirza among others.
Join us with India’s leading publishing house Harper Collins on a blogathon wherein we start the dialogue around living it up with #NoRegrets, Kaveree Bamzai’s empowering new book.
Tell us the choices that have defined you as a woman. It could be your personal choices or career choices – a decision that you made and accepted with #NoRegrets, whether or not they met with the approval of everyone else. And do tell us what got you to the stage of sticking to it, with #NoRegrets as well!
You can tell us about people, real, fictional or from the celeb world, whose advice mattered to you in this journey? When did you realize that you are not alone out there and there is a whole tribe to back you up?

I am someone who believes in honesty and trust, I trust people easily and I think most of the times this habit of mine turns into bane.
This is a story of how a matrimonial website service turned into a nightmare for me, already traumatized by the two relationships I’ve had. It’s a story for every woman who lives her life on the principles of honesty and trust.
And when she enters the bedroom, she sees her husband's towel lying on the bed, his underwear thrown about in their bathroom. She rolls her eyes, sighs and picks it up to put in the laundry bag.
Vasudha, age 28 – is an excellent dancer, writer, podcaster and a mandala artist. She is talented young woman, a go getter and wouldn’t bat an eyelid if she had to try anything new. She would go head on with it. Everyone knew Vasudha as this cheerful and pretty young lady.
Except when marriage changed everything she knew. Since she was always outdoors, whether for office or for travelling for her dance shows, Vasudha didn’t know how to cook well.
Going by her in-laws definition of cooking – she had to know how to cook any dishes they mentioned. Till then Vasudha didn’t know that learning to cook was similar to getting an educational qualification. As soon as she entered the household after her engagement, nobody was interested what she excelled at, everybody wanted to know – what dishes she knew how to cook.
