There are two extremely opposing views on this topic. One group of people think that it is alright to have sex in the same room where the baby is. Their arguments are as follows. Many families, especially in our parents’ generation, lived in single bedroom houses. Even if there were other bedrooms, co-sleeping with the children has been a norm. So how were they having sex? Clearly, in the same room as children. And despite this, as kids, we were never traumatized about it. Secondly, no one is talking about having sex when the children are awake! Parents definitely make sure kids are deep in slumber before getting on the act.

6 months of paid maternity leave! Sounds yay, eh? Actually, it doesn’t. And I have good reasons to say so. Some of us women might have been elated at the announcement, but not me. Yes, I am not very happy with the new 6 months paid maternity leave law that has come to force a few weeks ago. Sounds totally gross? Well, I do have good reasons. I started off my corporate journey shortly after completing my education, slowly building my skills up and taking on the levels one by one. Every time I appeared for interviews, I was asked when I was getting married. Why, companies are not sure if a woman will continue working after getting married and no one wished to waste their resources on training someone who’d eventually quit the job to balance her personal life. After I was married, I was marred with yet another personal question -‘When do I plan to start a family?” It seemed everyone- from my current boss to the hopeful future one, from the HR department to my competitive co-workers- were more interested than me – as to when I am having a baby.

After living in the US for 8 years, I moved back to Mumbai with my family in June’18. As a mother of two young children who almost always want to go out and play, Mumbai’s air is a big concern for me. It’s funny how the outdoors was seen as a great place for inhaling fresh air. But now, we can’t let our children out for too long without masks. It is sad and unfortunate that things are getting further complicated than this. In the recent two months, I have had to rush to the pharmacy more than ever before because of their abnormal sneezing and frequent complaining about a burning sensation in their eyes and throat. It was heart wrenching to see my otherwise healthy 8-year-old on inhalers and nebulisers. Initially, I suspected it to be an effect of the changing seasons but after multiple visits to the doctor, I know better. The presence of extremely harmful pollutants in the air is the main reason behind the allergy-like symptoms amongst children. This is when I started researching air pollution. I realized that our children are the most affected by air pollution because, for their body size, they breathe more air and also spend more time playing outside. But that was....
Working parents and raising a child is a topic that always centers of attention. Bringing up a little child when both the parents are working is a very difficult task. Effective parenting requires a lot of time, effort, dedication and sacrifices. Even if a working mother is ready to sacrifice her job for the betterment of her baby, the economic conditions of the house may not let her do that. With the standard of living going higher with each passing day and inflation being at its peak, the family cannot survive on the earnings of just one family member. This compels the new mother to get back to her job as early as possible, after the maternity leave.
