Back to work after baby
Just imagine how a child feels when he is asked to face the outside world all alone. A world to which he is completely oblivious, a world which is sometimes strewn with flowers and at others adorned with thorns. He is obviously supposed to feel a little weak, a lot more scared and way too uncertain.
Juxtaposing the same or rather upgraded feelings and emotions to a woman who has recently been promoted to a role more challenging than life itself – a ‘mother’ , she is bound to face a confidence cut which she so naturally otherwise used to carry with her at work. Guilt is usually born with the realization that she will now be shouldering responsibility with a foreign help. Her heart skips a beat with the thought of being away from her infant for more than 8 hours which seems synonymous to 8 years.
Even she has got accustomed to that homely feeling where time which had once become her best friend broke up due to the intervention of work. Now, time has started taking revenge by travelling at a lightning speed.Juggling with her baby and work every hour seems to pass like second.
