How To Have Things Done YOUR Way At Home

When you’re stuck in the home, and it’s not your turf,

And all you need is a quiet place so you can log on to work.

When things are done someone else’s way,

And you feel that you don’t have any say.

Just remember that this was how she felt,

When she had a maid, a cook and a care-giver to help.

She had a home arranged for THEIR convenience,

So they felt working for her was a pleasant experience.

Now there’s no help and it’s all changed,

And things in the home have been re-arranged.

There’s a solution if you feel you don’t have any say,

Just do the work yourself, and have it YOUR way.


The lockdown has put an end to part-time maids, cooks and carers and many Indian women are really busy. Some are struggling because they’ve organised their home, the way they cook, and their role as the one who does things for others (that others should do themselves) based on the idea that they will ALWAYS have help at home.

It’s important, at this time, for families to realise that some areas of the home and the workflow of house work get arranged according to the convenience to the one who does the bulk of the cooking and cleaning. And this is the way it should be for long-term peace and harmony.
