Whose work is it anyway?

Bored?
What boredom, no time for boredom!
says my seemingly exasperated friend in India on the phone.
With the complete lockdown and most on’ Work from home status ‘majority of families are struggling to cope with rising demands of the family be it the seniors at home, children and of course pets as well. The families are now suddenly having no house help, the quintessence of urban class living.

Compared to the Western world in India still, the lure of cheaper labor force makes a household helper available to all. But in the current scare, there are no maids, let alone cooks or gardeners. Except for those who may have a live-in helper which is not often the case.

Suddenly the ‘Work from home’ status actually registers the truth. For it is truly challenging for most families who have never bothered to make their own bed or do dishes or cook ever. In fact, there are many who wait for someone else to make their tea or coffee or get a glass of water.

In these hard-pressed times the major part of the work comes to the women of the household still, in spite of all those talks of women’s liberation that goes on doing the rounds every year around early March.

To all the women, who have suddenly vowed to prove themselves superwoman please take it easy.
A little dirty corner, neglected kitchen shelves, not a four course meal, everything is acceptable. But not at the cost of your own health. Remember your falling sick at these times will be disastrous especially if there is no one to take over from you !!
Stay safe

The women are left with no options as the demands keep on rising as those who are at home are hungrier than ever with time to kill.

There are, of course, some of those evolved households where all are contributing their bit. The onus of responsibility needs to be shared, else it will make every day a living hell.

If only more young parents of today teach all their children both sons and daughters equally to cook, clean and do housework as a part of life skills training so that they also know how to manage a home when they have one, the lives of so many future families will be truly much easier.

As we see it, the future is here with new challenges and unless we are all equipped with basic survival skills and takes into account, ownership, responsibility, and teamwork and move beyond gender biases, it is truly tough to live through times like these.

How are you and your families managing this interim period?

Stay safe and healthy!

We Can Heal The World

Our world is meant to heal
But it needs our support
More than ever before.

We need to do the needful
We have to stay safe
We have to be careful.

The truth is we are all vulnerable
And each of us is responsible
For one another’s life in every now.

It is our duty towards life
That is entrusted to us
And the lives that are connected to us.

Time to take every step safely.
Time to tune inward to understand
The healing is in the tuning .

Healing is in our thinking.Think well
Healing is in our listening. Stay safe
Healing is in our praying. Pray heartfully.

Let’s heal our world from where we are!

A time to rethink

A time to rethink
Revisit your old patterns
Of being and doing.
Pause a bit and analyze.

On what you did and what mattered.
Check what worked and what didn’t
Filter them out and bridge the gaps
The process will loop in all of you.

Take a look at your self today
Search your sense of identity
That is the truth of who you are
Perhaps buried under the burden of being.

Surface the layers of life
Summon the truths of your being
And course through to chart
Sensing a new shifting in this now

Who knows perhaps
These shifts will alter and align
While turning the world over
To evolve us all for the better along the way.

Settling into new norms.

A few reflections

As the world grapples with the current scenario of a pandemic, we need to support one another to be emotionally stable to deal with the challenges ahead.
Often the fear of being infected by being anywhere near a quarantine area is scary for most of us. We overthink of infections of many kinds that are looming large around us.

Our inner demons surface and we need to put to rest our internal fears of panic to survive through this all.

We are all unique individuals and are differently motivated. But in these difficult times, we need to rise above our individual perspectives and opinions and think about how we can be more responsible from where we are.

First of all we need to update ourselves of the changing times and educate ourselves as to what measures we can begin to adopt. Like home quarantine or self isolation. If so then we need to know how to effectively manage our existing resources and most importantly efficiently use our time at hand.

The initial euphoria of unexpected holidays will soon wear off as after all humans are social beings. They will begin to miss the sense of community and interaction in time.

What is important…

We need to come up with, how we plan to structure our day. Each of us in different parts of the world is affected in one way or another.
But acceptance of what is, and adapting along the way helps us tide through to be more positive and productive instead of getting depressed and demotivated.

Our immune system needs to be cared for by the intake of healthy hygienically prepared food. We need to stay hydrated.
Besides that, we also can ensure we are able to set aside some time for movement and physical exercises be it in the form of yoga pilates dance or workouts.

The importance of sleep and play in keeping us healthy cannot be stressed enough.
Exercising consideration and care in expression becomes paramount in these times.

It is necessary to stay motivated and empowered in empathy in these difficult times.

In case of lockdown situations if applicable besides working out on self-sufficiency to survive, we need to make an effort to create amicable situations at home as emotions can be highly strung in time.

If we are working from home, then a bit of forethought and planning can help better the entire experience for you as well those you live with.

If there are broken links and spaces created all of a sudden, remember light enters through them all to reset everything to alignment.

And despite all the gloom and doom that we are experiencing at this moment remember there is always something positive that springs forth in time.

In the meantime let’s be grateful enough to appreciate the blessings we already have and pray for those who need them most now.

God bless all.
