Being a girl in India is hard, says this teenager, growing up in a patriarchal society. But, she says, her family, where she can be herself, more than makes up for this.
Being a girl in India is hard I’ll say,
Especially when having dreams isn’t okay!
It’s frustrating when society criticizes every move,
And everything you wear has to be approved!
People have eyes on me everywhere,
They watch me with a swift, startling stare.
They monitor every place I go,
Everything I do, they claim they should know?
Indian society doesn’t think girls have what it takes;
They think that we can’t keep up with the stakes.
They still believe we are just frail and fragile,
And that competition is something we can’t survive.
Happily, there are parents, who encourage their girls,
To keep dreaming, take on people in the world.
They are parents like mine who want me to see,
To rise above everything that life will throw at me.
My family believes that I can be,
Anything and everything, I want to be.
They don’t care if the society approves
Because societal thinking should improve.

As a mother, Neha had always been there for her daughter. Why couldn't her daughter be there for her when Neha needed someone to talk to?
Neha was having severe problems with her periods. Her periods were highly irregular.
Once they had stopped altogether for 8 months after a long period of three years of hot flashes, and she was hopeful that her menopause had arrived. But presumably not so! She had heavier than usual period soon after.
These intermittent on-and-off intervals of period puzzled her a lot. Not that she hadn’t shown to the gynaecologists, but the prolonged period of menopause was very irritating and difficult.
