Being a mom has nothing to do with a woman's age. Let women choose when they want to be moms instead of forcing it on them!

I believe, being a mother and bring a living being on earth is a blessing. This is the most wonderful phase that I believe God has given women. So, should it not be their own decision when they are ready for this phase in their lives?
Earlier, women were forced to live on timelines decided by society. Marry at 18, be a mother at 20 and all the others. But today, all these ideas are being smashed.
Today, women are more financially ambitious and career-oriented, they like to set their own timelines. One of the major changes happening in society these days is women are the ones deciding when and if they want to become mothers.
Married for ten years, then choosing to have a baby is okay. Similarly, it is just as okay to be unmarried want to enjoy motherhood. At the same time, women choosing to have babies after a year of marriage is also okay.
These days, everything is okay as this generation likes to live without the timelines set by the archaic society. Let women embrace every phase of their life when they want to and when they are ready to do so.
Choosing to be a mother at 20, 30 or 40 is completely the woman’s and her partner’s choice.
Recently, actor Dia Mirza announced her pregnancy after her wedding last year. Good wishes have been pouring for her since her announcement. However, like every coin has two sides, there are a number of people hating on her as well. But why do they care so much about her decision?
What matters at the end of the day is to live happily while letting others live happily too! Accept people as they are, without forcing them to fit into society’s moulds.

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.
