In my current project, since a few days, my team lead was talking to me in a rough tone. He was pressurising me to complete the work by staying back in office after office hours. I had got really sad about all this. I was in a dilemma how to tell him to behave with me in a professional manner. I was fearing that this might affect my team culture.
I shared this situation with my manager, in order to seek a solution, to stop this daily routine. He said,”You are a girl. People around you, should talk to you with respect. Every team member should get a fair chance to decide the time required for task completion. And always remember, being a girl you can achieve whatever you wish for! ”
These words by him, really boosted me up a lot. He helped me get back my self-confidence and gave me a new vigour to fight back the injustice done to me. I felt really very happy.
And I started thinking…
In my society, even in the 21st century women are given secondary importance in all walks of life. Women are harrassed by famil members, are taken for granted in relationships, are looked down upon at work place…
Although being in a society with a male-dominated culture, I am blessed to have really great supporters, who are men. One such person is my manager!
Dear God, Thank you for blessing me with such an amazing person in my life!
