    From childhood I also wanted to do something in life and be at the top.

    If I have achieved something in life means it us due to God and elder's blessings and best wishes from friend s.

    When young we were not financially well . I studied up to 4th then for one year could not go to the school. One aunty was kind enough to admit me and my sister in a Convent school. I could pass in first class in 10th.

    I had a best friend with whom I studied from 7th to 10th. She was rich but down to earth person .Because of her help I studied typewriting and got a job as a Typist in a firm in Hyderabad. I worked for two years and through my boss got a job in Mumbai immediately where we shifted. Through the recommendation of my boss I got promotion as a Steno though I had not given steni exam. I was surprised when I got a promotion as senior assistant through our Vice President though.i did not know accounting. I was given the job of Bank Reconciliation of the whole Company . From manual reconciliation I learnt through computer through company and did my job successful ly. I took VRS as our company was taken over by another company. I worked for 38 years altogether .

    In my life there was someone to lift me up that's why I was successful in my job also God and Elder's blessings.

    After marriage also I was a working woman and could manage job, home and children because of my husband's help.

    Sorry for the long post , married life is different story.This August I will be completing 77 yrs and I am happy I achieved something inlife

    2. It is said behind every successful man there is a woman. But your statement here goes to prove the opposite.

    I

    3. You must have been exposed to successful people around right from your childhood days and with this in background you had grown up with indomitable spirit which later years turned to pay rich dividends.

    4. A role model for today’s youngsters, young couples.

    5. God bless you sister & spouse with more accolades and robust health to witness many more wedding and birth anniversaries.
    Regards.

    Hello mam ... so good to see this post. I got here from your post on lockdown.
    It is because of women like you that our generation has a hope and the fire alive in us.
    I am sure you have a lot of life lessons and please keep imparting them to us. With a smack on our heads if required.

    Sometimes, unknowingly but proudly, a feminist pride comes out when I see such achiever women.
    Good to have come across this post.

    A fruitful journey explained in few words. In our days, for families with limited incomes, thinking big and dreaming big was sort of a luxury. The immediate concern was to get educated and find a job as early as possible to help the family for boys and get to learn to read and write and off in marriage for girls. You were lucky to reach accounts assistant's position with just a matriculation certificate in hand and that too in a private organisation. Hard and honest work helped you.
    Looking back, it was a journey worth cherishing.
