Every time I talk to my Mom, she tells me some interesting articles she has read, a great recipe she saw on TV, or many times miracles of our beloved Rayaru. Today when I talked to her, she mentioned about a letter a Mom had written to her Daughter in a Kannada newspaper. I told her”Mom, it will be all over internet and I will read it”. And yes, the letter was posted by Ms. Melinda Gates on Facebook. I called back my Mom and told her I read the letter. I re-posted the same to my daughter, women colleagues at work, my whatsapp groups. I also read it loud to my Husband.
I have heard so many women tell me how hard it is to work, how hard it is to survive in this Male dominated society, how women pull down women at work and at home. Have I seen these things happen to me, YES. I have also seen this happen to my Mom, my Sister, my colleagues. As working women, we have gone through many challenges ourselves. We go through challenges everyday. But, most working women have a loving and caring family which makes it worth all the trouble we take at home and at work.
The letter Mrs. Chanda has written resonates so very well with all working women.
Read the letter, and share your thoughts.

Some quotes from her letter is posted below:
I believe in fate but I also believe that hard work and diligence plays a very important role in our lives. In a larger sense, we all write our own destiny. Take destiny in your own hands, dream of what you want to achieve, and write it in your own way. As you go ahead in life, I want you to climb the path to success one step at a time. Aim for the sky, but move slowly, enjoying every step along the way. It is all those little steps that make the journey complete.
As you go forward, you will sometimes have to take difficult decisions, decisions that others might scorn at. But you must have the courage to stand up for what you believe in. Make sure you have that conviction to do what you know is right, and once you have it, don’t let skeptics distract you from your path.
