#MothersDay The decision to become a ‘sitting at home Mother’ - A blog by Manjari

I would not hesitate in saying that there has been a culture of women forsaking their jobs after they become a mother of someone to be taken care of at their home. This is also a bitter fact that no mother has a choice when her young one is expecting her presence at home and she has to be out at work. On this mothers’ day I am dedicating my deep thoughts to all those women who had given up their career a few years back for the right up-bringing of their children. This was my mom too.



I had a chance to read an article of Victoria Beckham where she explained her feelings of trouble while leaving her children at home when she was out of country for work. She is wife of David Beckham and a model turned renowned designer herself who is a mother of three lovely kids. She said she felt guilty of not being able to be with her kids when they were babies and needed their mother the most. Though she thinks she had to be strong and leave her kids at home under the service of care takers.

Women have conquered a lot of hurdles in their journey of making their presence at every work place. This made them face conservative social mindset, stand against their family and prove themselves efficient enough to manage work and household responsibilities both. However, there is one thing that still makes women sacrifice their career and there are many who have to give up their designation when it comes to be with their child at home.
A women has n number of roles to perform in her life right from being a daughter to being a wife a mother and supposedly a grandmother too. In the consequences when is becomes a mother she is responsible for complete making up of a completely novel soul for this universe, unlike her other roles. She not only gives birth to a child, she has to ensure the child is healthy, happy and efficient enough to lead the world. And every women knows this is not an easy task. This is ever challenging for a working mother who has to afford a break from her career to ensure she is there for her child all the time as long as required.

This is a clear frustration when a women has to give up her designation and career and start pursuing a dependent life even after being efficient and talented enough to conquer the zenith. A gap of some five year is the least required as per the views I have collected from my friends who are or have been in similar situation.
Mothers’ day is not over for the mothers who have sacrificed their career for the right up-bringing of their children. It lasts for the entire year in their thoughts, plans, wishes, deeds, acts, moves and breaks too. You are often not appreciated as much as you should be. You are often made to silent your wishes and devote entirely in the making up of the wishes of your children. This is not an easy to manage life as the children would soon become big enough and you might feel abandoned at home with least importance showered and most free time in hand. When children start closing their room before you its Start Caring about Yourself Back. Just don’t wait for anyone else to praise you for what all you have done for others. Pamper yourself, appreciate yourself and get your attention back on yourself.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
