Yes. Did the title of the post struck an chord with you immediately? Does your leaving the office on ‘time’ invite unnecessary comments and stares – especially from male colleagues? Do you feel less ‘competent’ than your fellow colleagues because you leave office at 6? Because there is one thing that they have in plenty and you and I don’t – and they ‘hit’ us where it hurts the most – on our time. If the question is how, then let me paint a very realistic picture for you. I pack my bag at 5:30, and I like to move out of office just as the clock strikes 6. Every day, as I pack my bag to leave office around 6, my male colleagues never fail to stare; stare and make sure I notice. ‘Is it 6 already?’ ‘Time ho gaya madam, dukaan band?’ ‘Good yaa! You get to be on a half day everyday! Look at us, we will be sweating our asses off another 3 hours!’ I am so used to hearing these lines that I no longer care to answer, and nonchalantly walk away towards the exit. Though I always keep my head down and avoid eye contact at this time, the insides of me want to scream hard at these....

A new baby takes most of your time leaving you exhausted and tired. Making time for love and romance could seem to be a distant dream for most new parents, but if you look at it, these are the very things that will relax and calm you as well. Though sex is the last thing on a new parent’s mind, once you are ready and up for it, we’d say you should venture out. That is because sex relaxes and rejuvenates your body like nothing else, plus it strengthens the bond between the two of you.
When Is It Safe To Have Sex After A Baby?

In the latter case, it is advised to wait till 6 weeks or until your doctor gives a thumbs up. Though you can still cuddle, hug, kiss and feel close to each other, it is strictly advised not to indulge in penetration till the time you are bleeding. This is because while you are dealing with Lochia, you also run high for a risk of hemorrhage or uterine infection. It is also common to....

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.

Suddenly life has a purpose, a new meaning. Till now, there were only two of you, but now there will be an addition to the family, and you have to be more scheduled, responsible and available.
