Motherhood is bitter-sweet experience and challenges experienced by new mothers needs a more nuanced outlook.
Being a mom is a hectic everyday schedule. Its challenging, because of some of the duties are just too hard to handle at times. Thus, in this blog, I write about these five mom-duties I wish I could replace as frequently as possible:
Trying to make the baby sleep at the odd hours
This is the most irritating task that I have to do most of the time. My husband cannot contribute much into this as he has office meetings to attend to early in the morning. Therefore, I am stuck doing it mostly. It disrupts my sleep a lot, and it makes me edgy the entire day ahead.
Having being peed on by the baby and then changing their clothes before mine
When you think your baby won’t crib now, the next moment, he or she will end up peeing on you. This is the most disturbing task to handle in winters, especially. And you cannot even change your clothes before your baby’s clothes are taken care of.
Keeping an eye on the baby when he or she is playing on the floor
I have to take care of a lot of things at home, so I keep my baby on a mat nearby. He ends up playing with multiple items on the floor; most of them are his toys only. But it gives me a mini heart attack to think that any object might harm him even a little. Thus, I have to keep a sharp eye on my baby even when I am cutting vegetables or cooking food.
To keep a watch over my toddler when I am in the market
When a baby starts to walk, he never stops. I find the task of controlling my baby hard when I am walking down the lane in the market for regular grocery shopping.
Taking care of my eating habits so I can feed my infant better
Breastfeeding can be a nuisance at times. We, moms, who are food lovers, and love to eat anything, have to take care of things that we eat or drink. That is because currently, we are feeding our babies with breast-milk, which should be full of nutrition.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
