#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
Love your friends for the times when they didn't let you give up. Be friends for life and celebrate each other's imperfections.
Every time when relationships fall apartThink of the time when you bonded wellThink of those deep conversations which were magneticThink of how your bond was forged organicallyGiving up due to a minor miscommunicationGiving up due to slippage of wordsIs not why at first place you metKeeping the knot in a thread would never do anyone a goodSo go out conduct a dialogueAt times it’s hard and nerve wrackingAt times it requires immense courage to take the first timeBut in the end it would be worth itCoz you stood up for your virtues and beliefsYou felt light after breaking the ICEAll of us are embroiled in our own cycle of worries, fears and painsSo forget those sad and hurtful times and keep intact those lovely moments which taught you about the “Beauty of Friendship”Judging never earns you friendsLet the other person be free flowing, liberating and most importantly let him or her beLove your friends for both the wrongs and rights they did to youLove your friends because you know they will always be there for youLove your friends because their sarcastic remarks can make you look silly in publicLove your friends for the times when they didn’t let you give upBe friends for life and celebrate each other’s imperfections.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
