“True life is lived when tiny changes occur” ~ Leo Tolstoy
I am excited to share the third interview in the Desi Divorce Discussion series. This time I’m speaking with Sneha, a new friend I made through my book, Rewriting My Happily Ever After – a memoir of divorce and discovery.
Sneha, who comes from Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu, posted a story on Instagram after reading my book. This set the stage for connection and our friendship. I followed her posts and stories, specially when she shared details about her life as a single mom and her new-found interest in music which she has been nurturing since her divorce.
If you have read my book, you know that music gave me solace at moments in my life when I felt there was nothing to look forward to.
Sneha’s biggest barrier to walking out of her unhappy marriage was the pressure from family and society. But now, her parents have become her greatest supporters. After raising Sneha to be a “family girl”, they were not prepared to see her step into a lonely life, they had not seen other divorced women before. Yet, now, Sneha accompanies her father on his business trips at construction sites where she is the only woman!
Listen to Sneha’s inspiring journey from being an obedient daughter to taking up the responsibility of being the captain of her own ship. Divorce brought out the best of her qualities and allowed her to soar, says Sneha. She added to her credentials, she became an entrepreneur and when the pandemic hit, she once again moved into a different role.
When people find out she is a single mom, they say ‘sorry’ which she finds strange. If you see Sneha, who is all smiles, you know that she doesn’t need condolences for a broken marriage but congratulations for having come out of it stronger and better.
