As per our society, a person’s life is only complete when they are married. And most importantly have a child within the time limit of the 'biological clock'.
There is a famous dialogue spoken by Sonam Kapoor in the movie Veere di Wedding which says: “Jitna bhi padhlo, graduation, post graduation par jab tak bh****** mangalsutra gale mein nahi lagta na tab tak life complete nahi hoti”. (No matter how much you educate a girl, until she is married, her life is not complete.)
It was also considered to be one of the best dialogues for the year 2018.
Our life is a bowl containing many things. Our childhood, our school, education, college life, graduation, post graduation, travel plans, solo trips, job, marriage, child, and many more. But still people don’t understand that these are all aspects of life.
As per our society, a person’s life is only complete when they are married. And most importantly have a child within the time limit as per their tick tock of ‘biological clock’.
What if the person wants to spend whole of their life independently? What is they get married at the ‘right age’ and their marriage fails? What if they want to get married when they get life partner of their own choice, irrespective of their age…may it be as young as 25 or as old as 45…, doesn’t matters to them? What if their marriage ends in divorce or separation? Then will these so called people of society to come and help?
It’s always better to have your life’s control in your hands. Have your own set of rules for your life. It’s your life, which you are going to have for only once, so have it fully in your hands. People are going to come, advise, or even going to put pressure on you to do things, and then you will be left alone to face the results.
As it’s very well said in the famous song, “Kuch to log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna” (People will talk, it’s their job to do so; ignore it). Let them. Take charge of your life in your own hands. Be responsible and take decisions for your own.
It’s time to normalize things, normalize people’s choice for their own life. Life is too short to take stress and also too short to find happiness. Be with people who loves you, surround yourself with positivity, do things which gives you happiness.
It’s your life, be it in-charge and be responsible for your own decisions…!

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.
