The Penguin Dads or the story of real men

Disclaimer: This has nothing to do with Doniger and Hindus. 

Thanks to social media, everyone and their Tiger Mom has an opinion on parenting, status of women depending on whether they work or not, gender equations etc. While I do study such social dynamics I write this not because it's an academic piece or descriptive of something that has achieved critical mass, but because it's a story of real men and one that needs to be told.

When Leaning In isn't enough

Another book that looks like an interesting read for women following on from Sheryl Sandberg's Leaning In. This takes race and social class into account. Here's a review: http://www.salon.com/2014/02/19/when_leaning_in_isnt_enough_what_ive_lea...

And also an interesting video of a panel discussion of the book by the authors.

A balancing act: interstate work-life priorities

There I was. 7 months after I defended my PhD in Neuroscience, and still in lab. I had been job hunting this whole time, but only seriously for the last 2 months or so. Despite the uncertainty about my future job, one thing was for sure – I could not remain in academia. It simply was not my thing, and despite having an extremely productive and successful graduate career, I had senioritis to the core.

Shilpa Sunderraj at the The Goa Project

A few months after moving to Bangalore from California, Aneeta Madhavan of TC suggested I check out The Goa Project. I’d never heard of The Goa Project before, but after I began researching it, I made the happy discovery that Vidhya Mohankumar, an old classmate of mine, was one of the event organizers.
