It is said that when you have the dreams to do big and the wings to fly to reach your dreams and fulfil your passion, nobody can stop you. This is exactly proved by Mrs. Anamika Majumdar, a housewife and a social worker from Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. On October 3, 2017, she became the first winner of Rs. 1 crore in the ninth and the current season of the popular TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Anamika was very practical and was very steady in her approach to give her answers in the quiz show. In the 1 crore question, she was left with no lifelines but even then she chose the correct answer after reasoning with all the options. Her confidence, risk taking attitude and practical approach impressed even Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, the host of the show. She also made to the jackpot question of Rs. 7 crore but decided to quit as she didn’t knew the answer, which made it clear that she was not carried away by greed. Forty one years of age, married with two kids, a son and a daughter, she played the game with confidence. Her knowledge and reasoning skills made her win the game.

Let us now know more about Mrs. Anamika Majumdar

She is just one among the many women in India:  a mother, a wife and a homemaker. She is also a social worker who runs an NGO of her own by the name of “Faith in India”. Her NGO does charity works to help under-privileged children and uplifting of women in Jharkand. She is a commerce graduate and was forced into marriage by her parents though she had dreams of doing big for herself. Her husband is 10 years older to her and never appreciated her spending too much time on social works and neglecting her children.  But it was her passion to help the poor and her passion was her life. She has been doing her duties as a mother and a wife diligently but at the same time continues with her social services, which gives her solace and mental peace.

What made her participate in the show?

Since her NGO does not have much funds and she always have the desire to help the poor and downtrodden in the society, this became her motivation to participate in the show.

How did she prepare for the show?

Anamika said that for two weeks before the show, she prepared a lot reading various quiz books. However, she was always fond of watching quiz shows on television. With her 2 children growing up, though she didn’t get much time to watch TV, she used to read about current affairs and general news a lot which help her a lot in the game. She also said that she was lucky enough to get questions pertaining to the areas which she had studied.

How will she spent the prize money?

She said that with her prize money, she will now be able to contribute more for her NGO and work towards uplifting the women of her locality and help the poor children. Though like every other normal woman, she was initially been tempted to use her money immediately but she prevented herself from doing it. She will come up with the best possible way to utilize her money in a good way. Infact, she was also advised by Mr. Bachchan to use this huge amount wisely and not take any hasty decision.

Anamika Majumdar also said that she wanted to dedicate her win of Kaun Banega Crorepati to her “peepal tree” with whom she used to have a telepathic conversation every day. She considered her peepal tree as her best friend and her constant support all these years.

We the team of GharSeNaukri congratulate Mrs. Anamika Majumdar and wish her all luck and success in her life. This story should also be an eye opener for thousands of Indian women not to let go off their passions and dream big for their lives.

 

 

Home vs. Career –Epic Battle Continues for Women

Can women battle stereotypes? Is a woman assertive enough to lead? If a woman has a successful career, does it mean she neglects her home? And if a woman balances her home and career, does it mean she is disloyal to her career? Call them issues, questions and points to be pondered or debated, the underlying highlight is that women still encounter the age old battle of which is more important – home or career.

Breaking Stereotypes with GharSeNaukri
Breaking Stereotypes with GharSeNaukri

Till date, society places the classical double bind on a woman. ‘Can a working mother raise healthy children?’ This is the archetypical question which comes to everyone’s mind. Another societal bias which a working woman faces if she chooses not to have children is that she is under constant scrutiny.  Hungry for power, self – centred, indifferent, are the words which are attributed to her. Her society and family leaves no stone unturned to constantly remind her of the misdeed she is performing by not fulfilling the expectations of the society.

A survey by National Parenting Association, USA reveals that successful women assume more responsibility of home and children than their male counterparts.  Working women devote more time to children. The primary level of stress which leads them to overburden themselves is ‘guilt’. Juggling a career and home is not just time consuming but requires a great deal of planning and strategising, and when a woman is trying to meet these, the label of ‘Good Mother ‘and ‘Bad Mother’ comes up. Good mothers raise their own children and bad mothers leave them at someone else’s care. Can anything be more conflicting when she is pitted against her own child’s future on one hand and her dreams, her aspirations or her ambitions on the other?

We have a vast population of women on who gave up their professions because of this epic battle.  But the time has now come to herald a change. GharSeNaukri, the Job and Business opportunity portal for women believes in empowering her by allowing her to balance family and career. Women need to be included into the workforce by offering opportunities of various types and enhance their expertise and skills. Providing opportunities to work from home or start with a business venture working from home shall enable women workforce to get integrated and throw aside all stereotypical notions

Insights into Women Workforce Scenario

Women Workforce

Women Workforce

Is it true that policy on women empowerment is only on papers? Is it a bitter reality that though women are an integral part of the social structure, yet her health, nutrition, economic equality is hardly a priority in the Indian society? If data speaks…then the situation is alarming! Do the majority of Indian women have access to equal opportunities of work? Unfortunately….a big NO! Women emancipation or equal opportunities for women in workforce is considered as one of the parameters of economic growth of a nation.

International Labour Organization states that between 2004 to 2011, Indian economy grew at a healthy average of 7%, yet India witnessed a decline in female labour participation from 35% to 25%. This raises the question of why the decline?….In  urban areas we witness a lot of women belonging to various economic strata moving out of the houses to earn a living! So why we as a nation fair so poorly with Bangladesh and Indonesia when it comes to women economic empowerment?

World Bank states that there are 217 million missing women in India’s workforce and India has one of the worst gender gaps in labour force participation. Are these data real? Do these figures really matter in a normal Indian household? Is increase in women workforce really a sign of women emancipation? Modern urban woman, though perhaps not the majority, enjoy access to opportunities of various types – internet, social life, community bonding…..but here what matter is the realization that the appalling women labour force participation in India is a structural problem – social roles, family responsibilities….and the list goes on! Every woman has to understand her responsibility and realize that making her aspirations come true, is reflection of her true self!

GharSeNaukri is a unique platform for women from all walks of life which firmly believes that women can ‘Have it all! Do it all! Regardless of what field they are in.’ The Global Gender Gap Index by the World Economic Forum captures the magnitude of gender-based disparities in various countries and as per 2014 report; India is below average in Economic Participation and opportunity and is part of the twenty worst-performing countries on Labour force participation (ranked at 134 out of 142 countries).

Majority of working women in India still face the stereotypical myriad of issues – childcare, unfair share of domestic chores, gender bias at work, extreme work conditions, security issues and eldercare. This leads to a lower rate of women employment and lesser retention in the workforce. Thus a holistic and a comprehensive platform can be a catalyst for women empowerment. This catalyst of change with the motive of engaging women with flexible working hours and enhancing entrepreneurial skills is the underlying statement concept of GharSeNaukri.
