I have started living with my husband’s family, and it has been an eye-opening experience! Here are 15 lessons I learnt living with my in-laws!
I sincerely believe, ghar ek mandir. It requires positive vibes to function properly. You don’t need to cram the house with material things and expect smoothness. Similarly, the members should be well aware of their energies, radiating into the house.
One ugly mindset is enough to annihilate the natural rhythm. And, in our society, the throng of fools outweighs the rational and the sensible.
As I have started living with my in-laws, I have begun to observe them closely. The more I see them, the more I realize certain things about life.
Some of them are as follows:
Won’t you love to live a fulfilling life, even if you have a few months on your hands? What purpose does it serve to throw tantrums, and attract curses and sighs?
If you are dying, why can’t you die with respect? You cannot attract love and reverence unless you give them out.
Karma or divine justice- it will certainly happen. There lies my hope. A silver lining on the dark clouds enveloping me!
I have been a school teacher and a content writer. I am now a full time mother to a hyper active toddler. I try to relax myself by writing, reading, singing or listening to music. read more...

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.
