Neha shares her joy and says
15 years ago when I chose to give up my full-time job to look after our kid, I didn’t think twice. This was a better job and designation than I had ever got. All the other designations I had like, ‘Regional Head’, ‘Creative consultant’, Copywriter etc. felt small in front of the designation – ‘Mom’.Yet at times I missed all the action that happens in an office, missed my writing, so I kept doing freelance writing. Trying to get the best of both worlds. Then at times I self doubted my capabilities for not earning enough or as much as before…but after 15 years I have to thank my son for coming into my life and making me leave the normal job and starting my freelance writing. This year I got 9 international awards for my scripts. 6 for ‘Fairy Dress’ and 3 for ‘Daayen. The hunted. Now I only thank god for making me take the right decision, at that time.
GurgaonMoms’ congratulates Neha for her achievements and a truly inspirational journey. Here’s to many more awards and accolades.
