What you like most about your profession?
As a Human Resource Manager, I get to deal with the most enthralling and exciting minds. I get to hear their side of the stories and help them find the perfect career paths for them. I like the exposure it gets me. The very fact, that I deal with humans, the social animals with ever changing temperaments, has made me more resilient and accommodating in life. I believe that “nothing is permanent but change” and thus, working around the ever changing work schedules, it keeps me charged with energy to be training, counselling and motivating individuals.
Challenges in Life
Tell me a life without challenge and I will turn around and say that the person hasn’t lived at all. I have conquered all the negative voices around me that believe that women cannot balance work and home. I am mother of two and a successful entrepreneur, who before starting her own venture worked with multiple organisations. Every stumbling rock in my profession is it work place politics or a misconception, I stood my ground when right and humbled when I was wrong. I guess this strength has helped me empower many women who are shut down by the society.
How do you manage work and life?
The key here is balance and in the battle of life, she has experienced that plans are useless but planning is indispensable. Women, since early civilization stand tall and today also, they stand in all the fields like social, economic, education, political and psychological against all odds. Planning is an important part to achieve the goal, an hour of planning can increases the possibility to achieve the goals.
Your wish for perfect woman
A perfect woman is the one who embraces womanhood and is a nurturer. She does it pull the other women down but holds her and walks in glory. A perfect woman shuts down the negative voice that says “you can’t do it” and tells the world “I am worth it”. She is a “nurturer, a giver and a fountain of love and peace.”
