Myself SHRUNKHALA, which means a series or chain. I am a confident , smart single mother from pune, running my own Premium House Party Catering Service "TREAT AWAY " and won many different cookery shows both in India and abroad and a winner of Pune superchef 2016. Being a single mother for a 3 yr old is very difficult in terms of working and giving 100 percent to your child. I am an MBA-marketing, but I choose to work from home over a corporate profile, so that I can give ridhay (my son) all my time and attention. I have my routines fixed where I can have his play time , nap time , study time in place as well as I take party orders for food and cakes for small house parties right from 2 to 50 people. It's multitasking to a whole new level where I play multiple individuals at the same time. There are times when I break down and feel why did this happen to me ? My family is my biggest support . I can't be chef SHRUNKHALA without my mother Rashmi sharma and my sister Aanchal sharma .
Being a mother is the most amazing thing in this world .. It's a power that God has bestowed upon only females, given them the strength to reproduce another human being . The pain a mother goes through makes her a tougher human being , a fighter, a survivor . Ridhay gave birth to a mother in me. I did not know myself until he came .. He has made me more strong, more patient and more focused . He changed my perspective of living and being a more happier human being . I play the role of both a mother and a father for ridhay. Being two individuals for him makes my job even more tough for me . The importance of a parent cannot be explained , every parent is important in their own way to their child for their holistic development. I just wanted to be a mother, circumstances made me a creative parent.Why I say parent is because I have the power of both imbibed in me.I can't define myself as only ridhays mother .. for him I am his both parents in one, his best Friend, his teacher, his doctor, his chef, his idol in short everything for him so being a versatile mother makes you more powerful from inside.
So circumstances made me what I am today. Treat away was born when I was going through the toughest phase of my life .
According to me toughest thing are husbands and complicated too..... lol :) children are easier and more simpler to handle in your life,so for being a single parent is the easiest part of my life.
I want to give a message to all Indian mothers who are talented and creative but never exposed to the world.
We woman are fighters. We actually don't realize how tough we are. We are living in a bubble of serving and striving to be best wives, that's just one aspect. The day you shed of burden of household chores and look at your inner self, you are as dynamic and courageous like me. Make a timetable, a routine for yourself. Everything has to be planned, nothing happens without striking a balance between what you want to do and the love of your life that's your children. We all need to follow our heart and do what we like to do and make our passion our success mantra. Everything else will fall in place automatically, try it you will succeed!!
