Getting rid of ‘some’ of our good habits?! Reality check - ‘almost all’!
Sad but how many of us (indians in general not just desi’s living outside) know even 5% of what’s in our scriptures, or focused on yogic or ayurvedic practices. We had always been smitten by the west!


Why not just install an Indian toilet at home

They are more hygienic. I used to have one at home -

1) no physical contact, unlike western toilets
2) they had a flush and everything

So I don't see what you mean by smelly etc...


Guess you haven’t heard of squatty potty from shark tank.

OP- hips don’t lie....

Regretting moving in-house. I was an 8th year associate at a v10 biglaw firm but moved in house six months ago and am regretting it. The pay has been hard to stomach but the bigger concern is that the hours and work are not what I expected. Is it too late to go back to a firm since I was so senior when I left? Should I just stick it out a while longer and then find a new in house job? Appreciate any advice.

Hi ladies- so in summary I’m wondering if it might be beneficial for me to “hold myself back” a year and not go for the senior promotion this promotion cycle.

For some background, I’m in my second year at D as a TC II. And I’m currently in a reduced schedule. The reduced schedule alone doesn’t hurt my odds of being promoted to senior but I think it’s my technical competency that’s lacking.

Do any of you have any thoughts or advice while I consider this decision?
