These days she often goes with uncle to play in the toy room or in the empty room at the end of the corridor.
A friendly exchange of eye contact with some pleasantries, he helped her while climbing down from bus- the little one thought- this uncle is nice!
#Day2 (Few days later)
He helped her find her class when she lost her way, he then pat her back and said goodbye! She thought again- this uncle is nice!
Today uncle helped her tie up her shoe laces abd planted a kiss on her cheek. She thought – mom said not to kiss strangers or let strangers kiss you, but this uncle is nice, he is not a stranger- I meet him everyday!
Day4 (few weeks later)
Today uncle took her to the playroom during break. It was so much fun playing with toys! Uncle told her he’s a friend now n will often play with her! Woohoo she has a big friend now!
These days she often goes with uncle to play in the toy room or in the empty room at the end of the corridor. Today uncle asked her to take off her dress- she told him mummy said not to take off clothes in front of anyone but uncle said she can take it off for him- as he is her best friend. They played a fun game- tickle tickle. He tickled her n she laughed a lot! No one played this game with her ever before!
Today uncle again played the tickle game. but he touched her in the part between her legs- she told him not to touch there, mom said no one should- but uncle said he can, he is her best friend!
Today uncle again played the game with her but it was painful- what was he trying to do? She felt bad, but she didn’t tell her mom- mom will be angry! Mom always says not to allow Anyone touch the private parts! She could not sleep entire night! She doesn’t like uncle any more! But uncle told her it’s their secret- she should not tell anyone about it. Next time when they will play this game it won’t hurt anymore! But today it is hurting a lot!
This is not a mere story, but my attempt to give you an idea how a perpetrator or paedophile prepares his target! We all must understand- child sexual abuse is real! We must prepare ourselves and our little ones to identify and fight with such beasts! We need to work towards creating this world a better place for living for our juniors.

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.
