A poem reflecting the essence of reaching Mid thirties and evaluating life. Looking at lessons learned and opening up to new possibilities.
As I cruise through the thirties reaching the mid way
To toast to the wisdom gained
Through a few successful strides
And more blatant failed attempts
As compared to the younger- hushed up- failures!
Too much time wasted in vanity
Too much value given to the unworthy
Too much energy burnt in proving oneself
Too much pride to accept mistakes
Too many such memories looming in the mind!
Hoping to see a reflection of a better me
The mirror showed nothing but an adult version
Of the childish treads with wrinkles here and there Reminding of some progress
That wouldn’t disappear so soon.
Creating a niche for the newly found identity
In the embedded multi-layered persona
Developed in these years, to maintain sanity
From a complex world in a far more complex mind
Promising to break free of this captivity of monotony!

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
