The Silent Superheros – Dolly Gubrani

Quite often working moms find themselves at the heart of the controversy – what makes them tick, how they operate and how they manage life seems to be a subject of complete and utter fascination. Why else would we find entire research studies devoted to whether or not working mothers are happier and healthier than non-working mothers? Having said that, what working women do – raising children and managing a professional life – is no joke as most people find playing only one of these roles awfully challenging. On the occasion of this Mother’s Day, we asked some successful mums about how they shuttle between these two extremely important roles in their life.

DOLLY GURBANI, Designer and Owner, Diyaash Jewellery says that  “Managing teenage children and handling a competitive world of the profession is definitely one of the biggest challenges I face. Even more difficult is striking a balance between the two. My daughters are the source of my joy and happiness, while my work is my passion and strength for my daily living – both of which demand my attention, and at the same time are a responsibility, too. As an entrepreneur it’s not easy to explain to the children that work is important – so I have now dedicated my weekends to the kids and all my work happens during the week. I try my best not to bring any work stress at home and I don’t let them know what I am dealing with at work, which is not always easy to do, but I do pray each day that God gives me the strength and wisdom to deal with this and pull it off gracefully.”
