KarunaVerma is bewildered. “I don’t know how she did it,” she says about hermother, Renu Chopra, Karuna’s childhood memories are of her father leaving latefor office so that, by then, her mother would be back from work. Of her parentsworking in sync to make sure the kids were well taken care of . Of her motherhandling kitchen and classroom with ease.
When her own daughter was born, Karuna too wanted to do the balancing act. Butit did not turn out to be as easy as it seemed. For starters, her parents’ erawas different from hers. As she was living with her husband in Andheri, Mumbai,away from their families, resuming work would have meant leaving her daughterwith a maid while she was away. Her daughter’s formative years would be spentwith an outsider, a thought that did not appeal to Karuna. She quit herteaching job in a school.
For a woman who was encouraged to be independent. Throughout her life, thedecision to quit and stay at home was a difficult one. Ironically it was hermother who urged her to quit the job and become a full time mother. For Karuna,being a housewife is one of the tougher jobs she has had. “I have no timefor myself.” says Karuna. “I make sure all my personal work is done whenAvni is asleep. Earlier I had a set routine. My husband and I used to wake upat 6 am. I would reheat the food the maid had cooked the day before and pack itfor lunch. Then we used to head off to work, and at night, we would go out, Ihad a lot of time to myself and for my husband then,” says Karuna,
The routine is quite different now. Karuna has taken to cooking. She wakes upquite early and makes sure all her work is done before the baby is up. The restof the day flies by pandering to two year old Avni’s needs.

The Hand Holders
A Tribute To Caregivers
There is no job more important than yours,
no job anywhere else in the land.
You are the keepers of the future;
you hold the smallest of hands.
Into your care you are trusted
to nurture and care for the young,
and for all of your everyday heroics,
 your talents and skills go unsung.
You wipe tears from the eyes of the injured.
 You rock babies brand new in your arms.
You encourage the shy and unsure child.
You make sure they are safe from all harm,
You foster the bonds of friendships,
letting no child go away mad.
 You respect and you honour theiremotions.
 You give hugs to each child when they’resad.
 You have more impact than does aprofessor,
 a child’s mind is moulded by four;
so whatever you lay on the table
is whatever the child will explore.
 Give each child the tools for adventure,
let them be artists and Writers and more;
 let them fly on the wind and dance onthe stars
 and build castles of sand on the shore.
It is true that you don’t make much money
and you don’t get a whole lot of praise,
but when one small child says “I love you”,
 you’re reminded of how this job pays.
