A Special Birthday: My First Solo Travel – Uttrakhand

It’s been an unusual set of recent months in my life. From taking a sabbatical to pure indulgence at home, with kids and life in general. Home, children & their exams seemed like the most meaningful, tangible goal I had. The absence of the busyness of exams by end-March was weighing me down. I was also becoming increasingly aware of a growing dissonance within me. I was beginning to reflect on my life, on the turn of recent events, on my past and how hazy the future appeared but amidst a lot of chaos and clutter. The yearning for...

Dream Until Your Dream Comes True

It all began with the secret confession of my dream—a photo shoot in the woods in a traditional sari. The Gurgaon Moms platform is full of genies. They go out and beyond to fulfill any query and any wish we may have. I got a similar response when I hesitantly revealed this ever old wish on the platform. Many genie moms (as I would like to call them) reached in support. One such genie mom—Sriparna Banerjee Chakraborty, an ex-journalist, and counsellor who has now moved full-time into exploring her life-long passion of being a photographer, messaged me on Facebook. Her...

A Soccer Mom Gets Clicked with the U-17 FIFA Cup Trophy

There a few things I do every morning, right after I drop the kids for school and before my husband gets up. It’s a narrow window so I only concentrate on the very important. I make a cup of green tea, skim through the headlines and find out what’s happening on GurgaonMoms. Yes, it is that important and you’ll soon understand why. As I go through all the posts on my favorite Mommy group, I notice a post specifically for soccer moms mentioning a contest- Participate in the Coca-Cola & FIFA quiz and “A chance to click with FIFA...

Stop Consoling, I Chose to Stay at Home

“Oh, I know you are so qualified, worked for 10 years! It’s okay, kids have grown up now, don’t worry, you can work again, you can get a job, at least you could work in a school.” This dart gets thrown on me in many forms, tones, shapes and with a variety of intentions. Some throw it out of pity, some out of concern, some ignoring my identity as a writer, some just do it like a “Salaah” as in India, and each one of us is a self-certified life coach. I wish to put this in a loop...

The Power of feeling “I AM ENOUGH”

Does “I AM ENOUGH” sounds narcissistic? It could as my publishers initially thought it to be an egotistical one but later understood and commended the underlying statement of confidence and self-esteem much required for the women especially in India. “Oh! I am not good enough.” All of us human being have this inherent tendency to not feel good enough especially when it comes to moms. Being a mother and undergoing physical, emotional changes dip down the confidence of a woman in the external world. The challenge to meet up to the bars set outside seems daunting weighing the responsibilities...
