#MujheSabNahiPata - The reality of a Mom's life!

In India, we are conditioned to think that a mother must know everything about her child. Honestly, nothing can prepare you for motherhood until you experience it. So to say that mothers know everything just because they are supposed to be the more responsible parent is an assumption I have always disagreed with. I seek advice from my mother, and my mother sought it from hers - that is how the journey of motherhood unfolds. When your child falls sick, your motherly instinct and knowledge will come together to try and help you to do your best, but even then, there is no guarantee that you will be right. That is why it is vital to accept that moms don’t know everything.

Women empowerment with Captain Marvel! #ShareTheLoad

On International Women's Day courtesy Ariel, me and my mini Aryaa celebrated women empowerment by attending a special screening of Marvel’s much anticipated first solo female superhero film 'Captain Marvel' hosted by Ariel. As the most powerful superhero of the Marvel pack, Captain Marvel only proves that women can not only do all that a man can do, but in fact do so much more! She's human with emotions but the mightiest and strongest, and there couldn't have been a day better than Women's Day to release the movie. Ariel's #ShareTheLoad campaign that addresses gender inequality in Indian households and encourages equal division of household responsibilities, was the perfect partner for this initiative that complimented the mission of International Women's Day of creating a gender-balanced world. It clearly resonates with the modern family ideology of men and women sharing the work load at home and being hands on with everything. I am glad me and my husband have a clear understanding of these without having to make each other aware about such things. The best part is Aryaa has never looked at any task being a boy's or a girl's task. For her it’s all the same.

Learning Shapes via Art - Aryaa’s first Sponge Painting Experience!

Any child that has grown up in India in the last 50 years, has had Camlin as an integral part of their growing up years - be it for studies, art or craft. In fact, for most of us it is not a brand but an emotion. An avid craft enthusiast, Camlin products were a part of all my projects and today with Aryaa having active interest in art and craft, Camlin products are her best friends too. Aryaa is a leftie with great interest for painting and colouring and so we try and combine that love of hers with other things, not only to have fun and let her explore her creativity, but also to teach her what she is learning at school, thus ‘Making Learning Fun’! #MakingLearningFun
