Bond of sisterhood in a womens life is beyond age, caste and cader!! Happy womens day.

Wanted to write something about all these women in my life and the bond of sisterhood I share with them, for a long time.

They say it takes a village to bring up a child, the same is very true for a woman to succeed in her professional life too. It takes so many women to support for a woman to be able to manage and achieve what she wants in her career.

My mother, mother-in-law are two selfless women, who always stood by me. Their emotional support and kind words keep me going. Friends from college, who were family when we were in hostel has a special place in heart, a warm and free place.

But in my last 16years of professional life, I met so many amazing women who very total strangers when I first met them however later on, they became family.

Today’s post is about the bond of sisterhood in professional life.

Sisterhood came naturally

I remember when my first child was around 8 months old and I panned to change my career from Software developer to HR. I was accompanied by a young daughter of my househelp Suman. She herself was a working mother and understood my challenges clearly. Her daughter entertained and sat with my infant through out the interview process. If suman, would not have been so forthcoming I might have had second thoughts about getting back to work.

Not just her but a series of such amazing cooks, house help’s supported me in last 16yrs. Most of them mothers themselves.

Then came a group of women, who loved me and my kids most selflessly. The day care staff. Both my kids has been raised by them. From teaching them table manners to their first alphabets and poems all cam from this caring group. They were able to feed and keep the child cleaner than I could do over a weekend. Kids never threw tantrums going to the day care, rather they missed the Didi’s and friends over the weekend.

Thanks to all those ladies, because of them I would work without being worried about kids.

Sisters for life

Then came a more professional group, which could have envied, fought or done politics at workplace, but they rather choose to encourage, support and even became agony aunts when required. Yes, my friends at work. Most of them a family now.

Shipra Agarwal, one such strong lady. Whom I met in year 2010 for the first time and now she is my husband’s rakhi sister and in turns my kids bua. She has helped me not just in work but also in organizing kid’s birthday party. She loved me so much that I shared many of my troubles with her even before my mother and that was true for her as well. Now as she settled outside India, I miss her so much.

There are so many women in my blogging career in last 3 years, who have guided me to succeed without any favour in return. The best part about women bloggers is that, they have been their, done that so whatever they share comes from experience. Tried and tested. It can be an amazing tip for making paneer from AMY Amrit kaur or knowing how she maked SEO quality great for her every blog from Alpana Deo, and when I am taking about sisterhood in professional life, how can I not mention and have gratitude for the Sister Duo MeenalSonal, my co-hosts in #storytellerbloghops and my blogbuddy in true sense. Right from letting me know about various campaigns to encouraging me to meet deadline, they do it all.

By saying a simple “Thank you” I do not want to underestimate the importance and value each one of them added to my life. I am indept to each one of these amazing women, who help me stand tall.

HAPPY WOMENS DAY to all of us.
