Hello

I've been thinking about starting this for a long time. Wanted to have a blog to talk about some of the issues being discussed at home, office everywhere..

Lets start with some definitions:

Local Issue: This is directly relating to me (ha ha!). Choices, decisions I make as a woman, mum, professional etc.. and how I feel they are different from what mum or my ajji had to face.

Global Issue: Local issue applied on a globe scale (he he!). For e.g. does a mum being at home in the early childhood years have any impact on the 'insecurity', relationships, happiness quotient of the child?!

May be the answer is out there....
This blog is to see if anyone else feels the same...

Hey D, I would love to discuss all the issues under the sun (and beyond) with you - this is a great start! BTW, bout the mom working affecting baby thing - I recently heard a very interesting talk by Sharon Meers (high-level manager at Goldman Sacs and mom of two); here's her book on this issue: http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl/9780553806557.html. The book has some fascinating data (kids of working moms never feel they dont get enough time w/ their moms, its always the dads they are missing).
