Work from Home is an option every homemaker should explore #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Women Empowerment

How I love the fact, that this is an era of entrepreneurs. Until about a couple of decades ago, a person felt most secure doing a 9 to 5 job and mostly had a suppressed entrepreneurial vein. People who had a traditional family business joined it and there was a majorly clear divide between the service and the business class of people. But things have completely changed now.

A person’s risk-taking ability as well as the burning desire to pursue a profession in the field of their passion have both soared impressively and many are undoubtedly proving their worth. 

Being on your own is the new trend which is catching up and even if it pays you a little less because it is in the field of our choice, you enjoy it more. So the overall satisfaction index goes high.

Thus I feel this is the most ideal time when each homemaker can explore a work from home opportunity whether it is her own small venture she wishes to pursue or work from home full time or part-time job.

It may or may not suit her but until she will test the water how will she know and if it doesn’t there is always a second time. I understand she gave up her career to rear her kids perfectly but as they grow up she can now plan for her growth too. 

Primarily, her degree may be her aid for her to begin her innings. This is a story of Manasi(name changed), an Ayurvedic doctor by education who interned under a very famous and trusted doctor in Ahmedabad. Many times when he was not there, she advised the patients and they always found it to be very fruitful. Precisely, she was good at her job. She wanted to have her own clinic soon and serve the people which she really loved from the bottom of her heart. 

When she expressed this desire to her parents, they welcomed her decision but like any other set of parents asked her to get into holy matrimony first and then start a practice wherever she settles with her spouse. She agreed and wedded a banking professional from Kolhapur in Maharashtra. She was happy to get Navin as her spouse. First settling in her new home with in-laws and then the birth of her two daughters never gave her enough time to give a second thought to her practice and so her dream got deep buried in her heart to what seemed like forever. She just treated her extended family and their friends free of cost and satiated herself partially. But everyone praised her for her bang on diagnosis and always blessed her for treating them appropriately which made her happy.

As her two daughters grew she got more and more caught up with them or at least she thought so until she happened to tell it to me one day when she came to pick up her daughters from my sessions. I felt pressed to make her realize her wasting her talent is a loss to humanity who need good worthy doctors. It took us a while but she finally agreed and started a small clinic in a spare room of her home with a nominal fee. As people’s trust grew on her so did her confidence and joy.

It is an extreme joy to see her fulfilling her dream today, her family too is extremely supportive and proud of her as well. 

Often the inhibition to start, to break the inertia lies within us and once the first step is taken in the right direction, nothing can stop you, my dear! So, go for it gal ♥️

5 Ways to Style a Palazzo

Palazzo

"Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.” —Vivienne Westwood
Fashion for me is an optimum fusion of style and comfort. While I love to look impeccable at all times, I am at my best when the outfit along with making me look gorgeous also gives me unparalleled comfort and of course I have my favourites. One of them is undoubtedly a Palazzo. Not only is it ideal for all seasons, but it can also be styled in multiple ways. I have a plethora of them in different hues and shades, in prints as well as in strips. Below I enumerate for you, my favourite 5 ways to style a Palazzo:
1. With Kurtis: A Palazzo is a perfect partner for an Indian Kurti no matter what length you pick. Wear it to work or college or to a shopping spree with your friends. You can never go wrong with a vibrant Palazzo paired with a beautiful Indian kurti. Play around with Traditional Indian accessories and mix and match them to make different admirable combinations.
2. With Western Tops: You can even don a graceful ‘Board Room Look’ pairing a subtle coloured Palazzo with a white, off white or black western top and pair it with a matching blazer. Formal shoes and an elegant watch will definitely make heads turn on to your grace.

3. With Zari Kotis to complete your party look: A formal or informal party, get-togethers, priceless dates, etc. They definitely call for a beautiful bright Palazzo paired up with a contrasting Zari or embroidered top or Koti. While you retain your comfort, your perfect sense of style with spread your oomph among the masses and aid you paint the town red.
4. In Lehanga Chunri Style: Now, this is my personal favourite. How about pairing your favourite Palazzo with a matching designer blouse and Chunri to create an indo-western fusion Lehanga look. I bet it would look gorgeous for I have tried it quite a few times and have been satisfied with it so far. Leave your hair open and go for oxidised jewellery and high heels to flaunt your gorgeous best in this look.

5. Improvise to your heart’s Delight: Palazzo is an outfit where you can innovate and improvise like nothing else. How about donning a unique Palazzo and asymmetric top, both made of the same fabric? It would look absolutely awesome especially on a striped pattern. Accessorise it the way you feel depending on the weather.

So now you know how I love to style one of my favourite piece of clothing and if you wish to know from where do I buy the best ones, I would say they are mostly from my favourite chain Max Fashion, not only do they offer me unbelievable options to choose from but also most pieces are great value for money almost always .

Voraciously embark on your new venture, your age is just a number #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
women empowerment

There is no perfect time to fulfill your dreams, there is just a perfect desire to fulfill them. I am ecstatic to share with you today that gone are the days when one presumed that one can embark on a beautiful journey of their dreams only in one’s younger years and as one grew
older he was not left with much choice. Retirement was considered an age to sit back and battle old age. Fortunately, it is not so anymore. 

I have come across women who have started working on their dreams after they have aided their children to fulfill theirs. Isn’t that beautiful? Gurpreet is one such lovely soul who lives in a family of seven with her in-laws and two children who have just commenced their respective jobs and her husband. For over twenty-five years, she had given her heart and soul to keep her family happy and tightly bound. Everyone loves her and relies on her with closed eyes, such is the warmth she exudes. 

Having fulfilled all her duties she now wanted to fulfill her dreams as she wanted to stabilize in a suitable means of livelihood for their sustenance after her husband retires in a few years. Additionally , she also has a strong philanthropy bone in her and wants to contribute to the underprivileged in her own small ways. She has always wanted to be a businesswoman but definitely with a twist and that’s exactly what she became.

Clubbing her two desires together, she started a small business from her home called ‘Love and Care Ventures’ where she sold goods made by kids of orphanages, old people and women from old age homes and women shelters along with other embroidered goods that she procured from her village in Rajasthan. She had decided to pay half of the profit to the concerned organization or the person from whom she bought and retain the other half for her business. This gave her both extreme mental satisfaction and the ability to stand on her own feet. 

Soon people started identifying her genuine efforts for loving and caring the needy and bought more and more from her to contribute for the noble cause. As she flourished, she approached more and more organizations who needed any kind of financial assistance and ensured she could get them some help for their efforts. 

Soon this became the purpose of her life. She found so much meaning in her work and worked as enthusiastically as a twenty-year-old. Post-retirement, her husband joined her efforts too and took pride in her work. He even took classes for the orphanage kids and women and elders and added colors to their lives. The money they saved in their venture was enough for them and the satisfaction they reaped cannot be expressed in words. 

Today Gurpreet is a changed woman from what she was years ago. It’s such a pleasure seeing her focused on a greater agenda in life. I am so proud to have contributed my ideas at the start of her journey where she was seeking right directions. She proved to the world that age is just a number. If you have a dream and a passion to fulfill it, there is nothing in the universe which can stop you until of course, you yourself want it to stop you!

Under all circumstances, work until your last breath #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Women Empowerment

I am a workaholic, if there is anything which keeps me sane, it is my work. I start my day at four and indulge in pure straight from the heart writing on the topics I had envisioned and marked in my calendar followed by completing my blogging assignments with brands and other endorsements. This normally  is taken over by rushed routine cores and physical activity if possible before I commence taking the sessions in my academy almost till the end of the day when it’s definitely family time. So work is my life and I like it that way. 

The reason is the days I am not working, I am unable to forget my pain which gets buried when I groom people and see them inching towards their goals. I suffer from stage three endometriosis for last nine years and due to some unknown complications the bleeding hasn’t stopped from first April until today. Tomorrow(24th April) I go under tests for ascertaining the exact cause, thus today I thought to give it out to the universe to get positive vibes back which works wonder for me.Do keep me in your prayers, dear. It’s OK if life puts us into so many tests, that’s because it considers us capable to bear it all that too with a smiling face. 

Yes, I love smiling, you will never find it missing on my face no matter how adverse the circumstances become. No one can ever make  out from my face how I feel because I love spreading positivity and smiles. It keeps everyone around me happy. I don’t like seeing anyone sad and can go any limits to make them happy. I have seen my chronic condition effects my son and husband very badly, so I feel it is worth staying strong and smiling if not for anyone else, for these two gems of my life. Otherwise too I feel all this is a part and parcel of life and lead my life absolutely normally. It takes efforts to maintain my chirpy and forever happy demeanor but I love myself that way.

I am happy because my work keeps me happy. So yes, is it my work which keeps me strong because it aids me forget my pain in helping people fulfill their dreams and reach their goals in life. It is my identity today and my earnings are people’s immense love and gratitude. But why must one only work only to overcome some pain. Each one of us should work until our last breath because it gives a meaning to our lives, helps us set goals and endeavor and yearn to achieve them. 

I am the protagonist(name not changed) of today's true tale as I wanted to give out this message that no matter how adverse the circumstances are, one must try not give up and work towards his or her goals until possible. It helps you recuperate and diverts your mind to something creative and worthwhile. I bet if you see my Aqua Imagica picks of last Sunday, you can't make out my condition. But this how I am. After mom left for heavenly abode and dad remarried, I live on myself and no one else, it feels bad to bother anyone and much better to put a brave smiling front. Of course I worry for my boys but that's a mommy's and a wifey's heart. I am extremely proud of them though and I trust they will manage.

Women Empowerment also categorically means each one of you work and become independent and not only the husband takes all responsibility of rearing the family financially. Do whatever you wish to and once you stand on your own feet, you will see how your shoulders will go up in self confidence and how proud you and your family will be of you.

Don’t let your life meander as an aimless stream rather have control of it and work to make it a beautiful lake where flowers bloom and which gives so much calm and relaxation to the people who visit it. That’s the motto of my life and until I live, I promise to you all that I will do it to the best of my abilities. This is a single most important take away from my life. Now, I leave you here with a smile as wide as river Nile and some food for thought.....catch you all tomorrow!

Taking responsibility and setting example for others #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Women Empowerment

Of everything else on earth, it’s a person’s will and determination which can make her achieve success in whichever field she wishes. Today’s true tale of women empowerment is not about a woman but a community of such inspirational women who have set a worth emulating example for many others like them.
Park Street in Pune is a beautiful township to reside but because of its location it gets a little  tedious to get out of there for every little requirement. Hence, the women in the society decided to get rid of this perennial drawback and make themselves self sufficient. There was already a general merchant and vegetable vendor inside their premises for everything else each one took responsibilities as per her liking along with making it a medium to earn.

Priya started her physiotherapy sessions to aid the needy. Tia started a parlour. Sonia started a unique catering service which included early morn fresh Tiffin packing for kids and early office goers and full day yum ala carte. Deepti maintained a stock of stationary needs. Clothes, jewellery, birthday party supplies, gift return gifts, event management all was run inside by the determined women who would have easily spent their days parting around as most of them came from upper middle class family. But each one contributed as per their talent.
Their were dance, singing, swimming, instruments, speech and drama classes for kids within the township by experts in respective fields who resided there. 

Not only these, these women organised Marathons, Yoga and other fitness events guided by in-house slimming experts for the wellness of their fellow beings apart from their special  festival celebrations events. It earnestly was a pleasure to live for five years among such adorable and focused women. They taught me the greatest lessons of Camaraderie in my life. Trust me when I tell you this, if a stay at home lady, decided to start something from home even it was knitting pullovers or making pickles, everyone made sure she was given all motivation and support in spreading her work. There was so much warmth and love to the new entrants in their Whatsapp groups and everyone felt welcomed.

Anything we needed from medical help to a daycare all was available within the premises run in their houses by the resident ladies. Such an empowered bunch of ladies they are. Even if I asked for a doctor in the group, so many of them reached my place to help or called as I stayed alone with my kid, the husband travelling mostly. I have groomed so many of them in my academy for short periods to aid them work on their business model professionally and am still in touch with them. They still have my heart. The love and warmth each one gives and receives there is undoubtedly incomparable and imagine the number of entrepreneurs, this township has created. So many women standing on their own feet becoming independent and making their township independent. Isn’t it a try example of women power? Hats Off to you ladies, I take a bow!

So it’s absolutely fine and no crime to be single #WomenEmpowerment #BlogchatterA2Z

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


power empowerment
It’s the time we make a change in the way society perceives the goals of a human being. Though I really value the institution of marriage and understand it is vital to mankind but everything is not meant to turn our right for everyone. So if a person doesn’t wish to marry, or is a divorcee or a widow or widower who likes to lead a single life, let’s accept them the way they are. Companionship need not always come from a spouse. There can be any other beautiful relations that can merrily fill social needs. Let me elaborate on what I wish to say.

Ritu is a well educated Maharashtrian girl who secured a respectable job in a reputed MNC. With her hard work and sincerity, she kept rising up the ladder at a decent pace. In due course of time, her parents fixed her alliance to a suitable match and she happily married their choice. All went well for the first 3 months of their marriage when her husband left for the U.S. for better job prospects. Ritu had conceived by then. Being a professional herself, she supported her husband’s decision wholeheartedly while she continued her job in India. 

Initially, they chatted online day and night but gradually the frequency diminished as her full term approached. By God’s grace, she has soon blessed with a healthy boy and a wave of happiness engulfed the family. Pradyum, her husband, expressed his inability to come because of work pressures which the family especially Ritu accepted very considerately. He even turned down her request to join him there, citing no time and work pressure.

Gradually many years passed and she realized that her husband definitely has been avoiding them for years and is in a relationship with another woman, as confided to her by a common friend. Soon, they applied for divorce. Their divorce is still in court. While financially she is secure, the society keeps pricking her in ways more than one.

She is a nice person who for the sake of her son decided to marry again and found someone interested in her, through a matrimonial site. While their relationship was blooming well, this man made her invest huge sums of money in a home for them. Considering he was securing their future she had agreed. But it turned out that he had looted several other women this way and was behind bars soon.

Not once life had ditched her twice. She has now gained the sensibilities that she can still feel complete with her son without a dad for him. A mature empowered woman does not always need a man in her life to complete her identity. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out for some people but it’s okay, you are perfect without it too. 

We speak often and I always tell her not to have pity on herself, be emotionally independent, don’t keep looking for shoulders for support. She should do it to herself first to prevent people from having pity for her.


 You are absolutely fine the way you are, my girl. You have the power to take care of yourself, your son and your aging parents. So go ahead and embrace the world with a wide smile and open arms.
