I am currently a stay at home mom trying to raise a dare devil of a toddler. I have over 10 year experience in the banking and insurance sector and have worked in organisations like Tata AIG and ABN Amro. I studied in Mayo Girls' in Ajmer and went on to Economics Hons in SRCC . I did MBA in sales and marketing from IMI Delhi. All of this feels like a previous life so yes I am bordering 40 and getting wiser (hopefully) by the day. I have begun placing my thoughts in words mostly because I want to share some anecdotes and also deliver a message. I am a strong believer in women power perhaps to a fault. I am a feminist at heart and while i teach my boy about equality; i do not forget to try and inculcate chivalry in him.
