What is your official office hours?
I work from Home so no fixed office hours.
How many hours do you spend at Work?
Normally 6-7 hours a day.
When did you first hear about Periods and from whom?
When I was in 7th grade, school authority organized an awareness drive with Whisper/Stayfree (I don’t remember one of them). Only then I got to know about Periods.
What do you know about PCOD?
It refers to a condition when a woman has a number of small cysts in the ovaries. It is a hormonal disorder so it can happen at any age between 18 -45 years. In this, a woman has symptoms like Irregular periods, heavy bleeding, weight gain, infertility and facial hair growth.
Is PCOD treatable?
Well, as per my knowledge it can be treated. A woman suffering from PCOD needs to check her diet, exercise regularly, and go for a walk daily. As obesity is one of the outcome of this, so exercising regularly can make a woman fit.
Are women with PCOD unable to conceive?
As the periods are not regular, so the chances of a woman conceiving are less.
What is your idea of Work Smart?
For me, Work Smart means giving appropriate time to work & personal life.
I am interviewing a few people, to check how much awareness, they have about PCOD.
Through this campaign, I am not asking that women working in corporates need to be sent home early. I am simply saying that men and women, working in Corporates, need to be sent home early without completing their jobs. I am just saying that men and women need to work more effeciently, so that we are able to wind up our day earlier. Technically speaking, it is of no use, women reaching home early and men reaching home late, because the kitchen closes only when the last person has their meal at home.
It may seem a simple but illogical change at present, but together if we can bring this change, which is quiet possible in our society. It will bring a huge change in all of our lives.
