International Women Day is here again. There will be fresh debates with all kinds of emphatic words thrown in – feminism, domestic violence, women safety. But, we forget to include the biggest challenge that exists for women – the woman card.
Every day, I face situations that make me feel entrapped as a woman. However, I remind myself that no biases are solid enough. I work through challenges through collaborating with supportive people – both male and female.
But, most importantly, I break stereotypes by managing myself. I challenge biases by treating both genders as equal, not using language that discriminates against any gender and by not playing the “woman card”.
Weekend getaways could provide for an excellent opportunity to catch up with friends. On one such Friday, we decided to explore nearby destination of Neemrana. It takes only 2 hours to reach Neemrana from Delhi, making it a convenient option for haters of long journeys.
We stayed in Neemrana Fort Palace, touted as one of the best heritage hotels in North India. After reaching at check in time of 2 PM, we straightway headed to our room of Heritage Old World. The room fails to meet our expectations as it is not well furnished and does not provide any feel of heritage.
What is more appropriate time to travel then – when the bells are jingling and when there is aroma of fresh beginnings in air. So, we set to explore two beautiful cities of Rajasthan, India.
Detachment from work is essential to rejuvenate your inner-self every now and then. We planned a 3 day travel to the beautiful adjoining places of Bengaluru.
It takes 5 hours of drive from Bengaluru to reach the “Scotland of India”. We booked a villa called Leisure Vacations CopperHill Villa to stay rather than a hotel. It was very well furnished with option of tasty food.
So, you do not speak much? Her strict teacher asked in a plain tone. She nodded her head, realized she has still not spoken, then quickly said “Yes”.
The teacher gave a taunting smile before handing out the checked test paper muttering “If this is the best you could do.”
