A mother's dillema ...
I loved the joy god bestowed on me .I was awed by his grace that a little bundle of joy who loved me to the core was here.
I was a mommy to a cute adorable little darling. He and i were the world to each other.
I left my job as i was advised by the doctor to either conceive or forget the baby ever in my life. So the mom in me overpowered the professional in me and here i was a 24/7 mum ma..Time lapsed and now my little fellow was growing and was able to do his daily humdrum's by himself .
The working mother in me was missing herself somewhere...at times she tried to emerge but was thrown back deeper inside by the thought of leaving the little one alone with no one to care of.
I had my extended family to take care of but it was as good as no help.
Time passed and it was 4 years that passed away and then i started craving for my space my time my friends as the little fellow had started schooling and had friends to go and play with.
The adorable darling that i have supported his mother to go all out and start living her life again.
I tried and tried and all vain..people looked at my resume selected it but all boiled down to how would you work after a 4 years gap..
how would you be able to survive in a job market now??
I was amazed at one point these people talk about woman at workplace ...freedom for woman,
back to work for woman initiative by TATA group ..and then when realty comes it goes into drain.
Yes i faced some interviews some rejected outright by mere asking when was the last you were working???
My question to them is do you ever forget driving or eating or riding a bicycle if you have not done so for a few years..???
where does all that high thinking and self evaluating talks go now where does the policy of HR go
when reality strikes???
It mere boils down to the gap in work and to top it all they are ready to reduce your last paycheck even.. Its sickening to even believe.
Well its not my rant or a sympathy gaining post but its my believe there might be many mums who would want to join back to work but all these conditions and the unwillingness of the companies management push them back .
We want a chance to join back to work and i strongly believe that there are some who would agree that one chance is not too much to ask for.
