If you are on Twitter, do check out these 10 Indian moms who always have something interesting to tweet!
By Prerna Malik
Twitter is not just for tweeting out news and trivia or sharing details about your daily routine; it is an excellent tool to connect with like-minded people from around the world. As an active Twitter-er (yes, that is a word, I believe), I have had the opportunity to connect with and interact with some of the most interesting moms on Twitter.
The following 10 Indian moms on Twitter (in no particular order) tweet about being a mom, parenting, family life and best of all, invite you into their worlds. In other words, follow them NOW!
1. @mommylabs – I know Rashmie, the mom behind Mommy Labs and am amazed by her creativity and learning through play ideas. Follow her Twitter stream if you’re seeking creative ways to teach kids about science, maths, or simply, have fun.
2. @McAfee_cybermum – Tweeting about keeping kids safe online, this is one Twitter account that you, as a parent, must follow.
3. @putti_prapancha – Mom to Putti, this Twitter mother will help you find the best craft projects to do with the kids. From playing with shredded paper to smashing Styrofoam bowls, you can be sure that her Twitter stream will keep you inspired with ideas.
4. @zenmotherhood – This office-going mom currently living the SAHM lifestyle tweets about life with her kids and topics of general interest to parents all over the world.
5. @Rekhakakr – Founder of Life Zing, an online magazine and multi-talented mom, Rekha’s Twitter stream is a melting pot of her culinary adventures and her photographs, along with titbits on leading a life of health, wellness and balance.
6. @TheMomViews – Swapna is the mom behind The Mom Views and shares her ‘views’ and ideas on parenting, products for kids and families and more for Indian parents.
7. @kiranmanral – Mom, writer and recently published author, Kiran Manral is an active Twitter force to reckon with. She is straightforward and vocal about issues she feels strongly about and doesn’t hesitate to voice her opinions, whether on parenting or on public issues.
8. @ArtsyCraftsyMom – Like @MommyLabs, Shruti Bhat the woman behind Artsy Craftsy Mom also tweets about fun craft projects with kids to inspire you to make learning fun and free-structured.
9. @ProlificCooking – I’ve had the pleasure of trying out Srishti a.k.a. ProlificCooking’s recipes and they’re a hit with the kiddo. If you’re looking for healthy but yummy snack and food options for the kids, Srishti is your gal.
10. @PreetiVyas – Mom and entrepreneur, Preeti tweets about cooking with kids, fun with food and of course, her life as a multi-tasking mompreneur.

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
