#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
There are times when motherhood can be challenging & tiresome. But there are times when your kids make it all worth it. This young mom shares her story!
One afternoon, after a very busy day of coaching, my little daughter Shrimayi and I were playing for a while. She had a proper afternoon nap while I was busty. Then, she was wide awake when I was tired and needed to sleep.
Little Shrimayi is two years and four months old. And I have to be very alert when she is around. I can’t even think of sleeping while she’s awake. So I was lying on the bed in in the living room and wanted to know what she would do if I fell asleep. And I closed my eyes when I sensed her looking at me.
To my surprise, my little bundle of joy and love, came near me, kissed my forehead and shared her soft blanket with me. We call this blanket of hers mau mau. And I usually put it on her when she’s asleep. I don’t where she found out about it but I was extremely happy with that little action of hers.
Isn’t that the law of nature- whatever we give, it reciprocates back? Children are the pure form of nature without any layers of negative emotions. Her kiss on my forehead and the blanket were her way of showing love for me.
It felt like the reward to motherhood and all those post delivery sleepless nights. I don’t know what our relationship will be when she’s a teenager or after she gets married but I know that our bond will be intact. And it will be full of love and affection like that of every mother with her child.

Maleesha who calls herself ‘Princess of Slum’ through her social media captions has now landed herself a space on the cover of Forest Essentials' new campaign.
“Dream, and one day that dream will come true” as said by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, many of us have goals to accomplish and we do dream about achieving them.
A huge dream has come true for a 14-year-old girl from a Mumbai slum area, Maleesha Kharwa. She has been a simple girl with a normal family until some time ago. Today she is the face of the popular skincare brand Forest Essentials.
Kharwa was first discovered by Hollywood actor Robert Hoffman in 2020 who later created a Go Fund Me page for Maleesha.
My mom was shocked to see how he behaved with me. This is when I realised that my husband’s behaviour was not normal and it was not my oversensitivity.

“Anju, let us go to Masi’s place since you can drive now”-this was my mom encouraging me to drive. I had just learnt driving, was extremely scared of using the reverse gear but my mom was happy to go with me to her sister’s place which was 15 kms away just so that I gain confidence in driving.
This is but one example of how she did everything possible to encourage me and my sister.
