Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
The love I wanted was pure and restless. Where there were no judgements and only bliss. No one loved me the way I wished,
If music comes from a broken heart,
Mine would’ve sung a million songs,
If love is what you desire,
I wouldn’t have been broken from the start.
For the love I wanted was pure and restless,
Irrevocable and true and serene,
Where one could just lie and hope to live forever,
Where there were no judgements and everything was a bliss.
Nowhere can I find that love,
Am I so undesirable?
No one loved me the way I wished,
And still I yearn for some attention and trove.
Sometimes hugs can join your pieces,
Sometimes they can break you further apart,
Wherever I went, I didn’t find that unconditional love,
And my desire to be understood was amiss.
Maybe I should learn to be alone more often,
And desire for no one at all,
For gods sometimes enjoy your misery,
And make it even more permanent than you want.
With my phone switched off and no one around,
My mind wonders and wanders,
I am left to be alone and squander,
And yet told to be “strong” and bound.
If you were so alone, you’d know my pain,
And my only desire to be understood well,
Just one person would do my God,
Let all my pain be gone and slain.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
