Its very difficult for working mothers to leavetheir children and go to office.Those days when I was working there was no phone at home. I had to leave home by <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:time Minute="30" Hour="7">7.30 a.m.</st1:time> in the morning and come home by 6.30 or 7. p.m.
In the beginning I used to travel by train so if the trains arelate then I used to be late.Luckily my husband used to come home early and look after the children. He used to work next station but still he had to go by train and from there by bus to his office. He used to have Wednesdays off and myself Saturday and Sunday. He used to leave by <st1:time Minute="0" Hour="7">7 a.m.</st1:time> and come home by 4.30.p.m.
We used to leave the children under the care of a servant and till I come home I used to get worried. Since it was a must for me to go to work I used to go. If grandparents are there no problem , children will be in safe hands.
The servant who was with me, her husband had left her so she used to feel jealous because I used to go to work and my husband used to take care ofme and my children and help me in house work.
When my younger daughter went to 4<SUP>th</SUP> Standard after that they used to take care of themselves. We stopped the servant. They had problem for four days in a week as two days I used to be at home and one day my husband used to be at home.
Somehow by God's grace my children grew up. After my elder daughter got married I took VRS from my Company as our Company was taken over by someone else. Now they are all married and well settled.
