एक माँ की बेबाक, बेलौस डायरी। किताब एक माँ के नोट्स हैं, लेखिका का अपना ज़िन्दगीनामा है तो दूसरी माँओं के क़िस्से भी। बच्चों को पैदा करने से लेकर उनकी परवरिश के क्रम में एक पेरेन्ट, एक परिवार, एक समाज किस तरह ख़ुद को कितना बदलता है (या नहीं बदल पाता), उसका लेखा-जोखा। 'मम्मा की डायरी' न पेरेन्टिंग गाइड है और न फिक्शन, न मातृत्व पर सलाह है। तजुर्बों का एक संकलन है, और कुछ मु ...more

Non fiction. Diary of a lady post marriage from family planning, to pregnancy, to parent of twins and raising kids.
Pretentious, preachy ramblings. Picked this only because I loved the short story collection Neela Scarf.
Had many issues big and small with this book.

Major one:
There is this case where a mother is unfortunate to suffer miscarriage, and she keeps writing letters to her unborn son on his "virtual" birthdays, up-to 18 years!!
As if miscarriage isn't tormenting enough, you continue holdin

It's not a parenting guide but it can teach you so many things about parenting and life of a parent, especially new mother. It's non-fiction (I didn't know that). I'm not very fond of this genre but what makes this book interesting is author's writing style. Very fresh, it grips you instantly.

It talk about family, love and loss. And, it's not just author's account. The author talks about many other mothers, their life, their loss. Some moments are very poignant but sometimes I felt distracted.

A touching tale from working mothers. A must read for men and women alike. While it teaches women to manage their expectations, it also teaches men to support their wives through their career and household chores.

Changing times need changing attitudes. Men are no longer the sole bread winners of the family and women should no longer be the sole homemakers. This book exposes the realities of societal expectations that place much more burdens on a woman than a man.

The writing of the book strikes a

This was an okay book. True to its title, it is a mother's diary.

The start of the book was really good. I was able to relate to it till the first 50 pages, as my kid is 15 months old now. But gradually, the book became very preachy and philosophical, something I never like reading. However, I really like the author's observation about people. I liked it in her first book "Neela Scarf" and that is why I picked this one.

Am not sure whether I will be recommending this book or not.

“पहले परिवार कई और तरह से ‘कम्पलीट’ हुआ करते थे । अब न्यूक्लियर फैमिली के इस ज़माने में सारे मुद्दे बड़े हो गई हैं– पेरेन्टिंग, टीनएज, युवावस्था, करियर, शादी में लड़ाई और शादी बचाने की लड़ाई, बच्चे, तलाक़, तलाक़ के पहले और बाद के मसले, फाइनेन्शियल सेक्युरिटी, घर, गाड़ी, इंश्योरेंस, फ्यूचर... सबकुछ । जितनी आर्थिक ताक़त बढ़ी है, उतनी ही असुरक्षा भी बढ़ी है । प्रति व्यक्ति आमदनी और प्रति व्यक्ति संपत्ति, दोनों में इजाफा हुआ है । लेकिन तनाव और इच्छाएँ, दोनों बढ़ी हैं । अपार्टमेंट्स हम सबसे पास हो गए हैं, घर सिमट गए हैं ।” 0 likes
