#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
A startup by two sisters to bring a breath of fresh air into your house! Joyous Beam Candles is all you need when you want your home to smell wonderful!
Joyous Beam Candles is a startup by two sisters where we design, manufacture and market organic, handmade candles. From scented candles to candles based on books and tv shows we try to make our candles more relatable to everyone.
Our homegrown brand takes pride in developing a recipe of candle that can be applied on the skin too. We aim to reach out to the maximum audience and share awareness around the benefits of aroma on mental wellbeing through our Candle Meditation Workshops. Our motto is simply to spread love through light and we have already begun our journey.

We come from a background where it is still believed that women are only a best fit to be a home maker. We do believe that this mentality in instilled in our elders for ages. While we can’t rebel against it, we can’t sit back and accept it either.
Planting a small seed of empowerment today will definitely grow into a full big tree someday. Joyous Beam Candles is that seed planted by two of us hoping to build a platform for women after us.
We learned that only when we listen carefully to what our clients have to say can we grow and innovate. From providing awareness around how to use candles to make everyday better to making it more relatable to our clients is what makes Joyous Beam stand apart. Our podcasts, blogs, YouTube channel are all just a medium to provide value and that is what our clients love about us.

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.
