Tomorrow, Monday 8th June, it will be back to work in an office environment for many. Mumbai is allowing upto 10% of the workforce to be present in offices, though work from home and staggering of working hours has been recommended. Religious places, restaurants, malls are all set to open too. People are free to get back the services of their household helpers, subject to approval by the societies/resident welfare associations where they live.
Why 8th March? It seems that in 1914, 8th March, a Sunday, was the day that women in Germany demanded their right to vote. In 1977, the United Nations asked members to observe 8th March as as International Women’s Day, and this has been done in many countries of the world ever since. (Source: Wikipedia)
With 8th March falling on a Sunday this year, a few of us jumped at the opportunity to try our hand at knife painting at Pradnya’s Art World.
