The job bug has bitten women as well. An enthusiastic house wife, Sunitha with her two kids said that she had always dreamt of being a career oriented woman. “After I became a mother, the possibilities of a full time job appeared less. When my kids joined school, I started taking tuitions with my college education. It’s been great so far as I love teaching the kids. It gives more meaning to my life. Of course it wouldn’t have been possible without my husband’s support,” she smiled.
Looks like not many people prefer to sit jobless in their homes even if the basic needs are met. So does 78-year-old retired banker, Mr. Swaminathan. He lives with his son and his family but lives on his expense for his needs. “My son is able enough to take care of me but I am an independent man. I work three hours a day writing blogs on the Internet and write articles for online magazines. It’s not just about the money but the sense of fulfillment that keeps me driving,” he said.
One can also work by honing his talents and working in fields like painting, designing dresses, opening boutiques, working at a crèche, libraries, and saloons, driving schools, language classes and many more. The possibilities are endless.
