Saw a security guard. In her khakis. Bun neatly tied up under her cap. A small bindi. Going about her job in the heat.
Once she is done, she will, in all probability, change back into a wear she is comfortable in, go home and sit behind the kitchen fire.For her, the uniform in blue- the trousers, the shirt, the shoes, the cap just signal working hours. Duty and her professionalism.
Thousands of women like her balance work, home, tradition, societal expectations, individual license and economic freedom, with elan.
Without reading articles on work life balance. For many like her, it's a life they have seamlessly slipped into.
