Hello there! How are you doing? There is a surprise waiting for you at the end of this article. Yes! you heard me right!

But before that, let me narrate a story of two women, Sheela and Maya. They were well educated and where ever they went they made friends and lead fulfilled lives. Everything was just perfect for them. Then like all good stories, life happened.

They got married and had children and had to take care of elders in their family. As their responsibilities grew, their dreams seemed like well just dreams. All those once sought-after aspirations seemed so far away and unattainable. As frustration built, Maya decided she had to work and put her kids into day care. Sheela decided to stay on as a stay- at-home mom. Though both these decisions were wise, nevertheless they both felt unfulfilled. Sheela felt more and more depressed since her skills were not put to use. She looked at her mom and grand mom and the lineage before her. Were they all not victims to the same situation she was in? Their dreams forgotten; their lives put on hold. Maya on the other hand was always overworked tired and a feeling of guilt overshadowed her wherever she was. She was never able to give hundred percent to her kids or work. Every morning she had to wake up early to pack lunches and rush to work before dropping her kids at day care. The long travel to work was not helping.

These are the stories of most women. But thankfully with the advent of technology and the pioneering role of consultants such as Her Second Innings, the scenario is changing rapidly.
