#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
First time in history it was a procession yet mass was not there, cheering humanity and caring for the fellow person was all part of it.
Divided we stand and united we make.
Yet another history created to show the
Phenomenal act of gratitude .
It was a divine feeling to watch all the constructive figures as homes and residents as families. No festival was so much fun and connecting. Clapping of hands was an echo of togetherness.
The forced stay at home has made the changes of the era. Metamorphic changes are gradual investments in the future. Though the phase is temporary, it has had its positive impact on society, individual and humanity at large.
Women are happy to find their spouse and children helping in household chores. You can call it as a result of boredom or abundance of time. Children playing their favourite music, instrument and seeing life the other way. Renewing their relationships with the family members.
Working women have made most of stay at home by being available to their family and toddlers.
We are so engrossed with our mechanical life that we hardly find time for our families. Now the hard-hit time has made us slaves leaving us with a question of how to spend time at home? This is a retro feeling. Think of the old age people’s dwellings, their engagement with the family, chore activities and no media exposure. Life revolved around loved ones and earning was a support. But now the family is a support and earnings are prime.
This retro feeling might be a warning to be a human all over again.

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.
