I recently attended a panel discussion on gender equality at home by Ariel India. Even before my association with Ariel, I was always fond of their #ShareTheLoad ads. I saw the first one in 2015 that features a professional woman who earns more than her husband but it’s taken for granted that she will do the laundry every […]
It’s Okay to NOT be Happy About Your Pregnancy!
I’m 6 months pregnant with our second baby and I recently finally announced my pregnancy to majority of my friends and on my social media. Prior to that, only our parents and very few friends knew about it. With my first pregnancy, we started telling people after the first trimester was over but this time, […]
Parenting Together – Your Baby, Your Way!
I talk about gender equality and gender neutral parenting a lot on my blog and social media. It’s something my husband and I feel very strongly about and it all starts at home. I get a lot of questions on Karan being a very hands on dad and how he manages everything end to end […]
Art has always been one of my favourite hobbies. Hence, as a parent, I wanted to ensure that my daughter, Karma, gets an exposure to this creative outlet from a very young age.

Even the food was ‘Unicorned’! Read my post on Unicorn or Rainbow Food […]
My daughter is convinced she’s a Unicorn and wears her Unicorn headband everywhere, including to soccer practice. 😉 So when it came to her 4th birthday party, we knew it was going to be a Unicorn Birthday Party! This was also the first time she was actually excited about her birthday and listed everything from […]
As a parent, one of our primary concerns is to keep our children healthy. From the day a woman gets pregnant, she starts paying attention to her diet and exercise for the benefit of the child growing inside. This continues well after the child is born and utmost attention is paid to all aspects of […]
While growing up, I was not a regular breakfast eater. Despite my dad insisting on a proper meal every morning, I would skip it many times a week or just grab a toast on my way out to school. At that time, it didn’t occur to me that the reason I felt tired by second […]
A few months ago, I attended an Influenza Awareness Meet held at St. Regis here in Mumbai. I also hosted the event and moderated the panel discussions held during it. Ask any mother what she wants most in life, the answer will be the same across board – A healthy, happy child. And in order […]
