Questioning Unconditional Love…

Today marks one year since my mother left for her journey to another world. This is a tribute to her love, a love I received in abundance and yet, wasn't satisfied. I always believed that my sister was a recipient of more love and attention than me, something that I have never been able to make peace with, no matter how much I tell myself that this is not true.

Free Or Bound?

It is that time of the year when patriotism runs high among all of us in India.

Motherhood: Take It Easy…

Motherhood is a wonderful journey that needs to be enjoyed at every step, not a process that needs to be followed in a certain way. It's time we stop putting ourselves and our children under pressure to excel....It's time to savor each moment.

MotherHood Vs. Career: Is There Need To Make A Choice?

Thousands of women in India and across the globe are questioned about their decisions to have a child while being employed. It is as if you have a make a choice whether you want to climb the corporate ladder or raise a child. Apparently, you can't do both!!

Stop Fixing Others; Say No To Body Shaming

Managing a home also requires planning, multitasking and organization skills-- why doesn't it get the respect it deserves? Isn't it time we thought a little deeper on this and stop questioning those qualified women who decide to be homemakers instead of CEOs? Their sacrifices and contribution needs to talked and written about more so that housewives need not feel awkward about introducing themselves in public.

The Number 3 And Why It Holds A Special Place In My Heart (And Life too!)

I was the third girl child to my parents....from disliking being the third, I gradually looked up all that the number 3 stood for/represented. From then on, I'm in love with this number. Read on to know more about the 'why' of this side of me.

Letting Go Of Comparison– The Need To Be More Compassionate Towards Self

Women’s Sports Deserves Attention Too

Women's sports does not get the attention it deserves which inhibits the women of younger generation to take up sports as a career. This needs to change. Merely wanting them to bring home gold from the Olympics is unfair unless we support them and their games right from the start. We must encourage them, motivate them, give them the facilities to train and more importantly watch them as they play. That way, in future, we can hope to see more promising women take up sports as a career and not leave it half way.
