As I watched this gorgeous video by Max Life the first thing that struck me was the important message about life and insurance that was conveyed during the friendly banter between the lead characters. The visual rendition of an every-day home scenario beautifully conveyed how men and women today have become more involved in creating equal and healthy partnerships. I loved the playful manner which advocated the work hand-in-hand ethos to help each other achieve the goals and dreams.

I know very few women like myself can boast of being surrounded by these supportive men. My father, the pillar of my existence always pushed me to take every path my heart desired without any inhibitions. Even the few errors I made, he validated them as a learning experience that would help me build my life around. My husband whose love and encouragement took me from strength to strength as we grew together. During the building of my brand, he proved an unconditional motivator through the ups and downs and helped me emerge a better person with knowledge and skill.


Sometimes someone doesn’t need to move mountains for you, it just takes a patient ear, selflessness, and understanding. With my cousin Hiren, I learnt that acceptance is the cornerstone of friendship, someone who gives you the space to be yourself, even if vulnerable. A huge part of our friendship stems from knowing I have someone I can count on, any time of day or night. Hiren helped me learn to rely on someone other than myself; whether I need information on work projects, or an honest opinion on a creative idea or advice about my finances, insurance, and investments, I know who to ask. 

Being practically raised together helped, as we pushed each other to be the best versions of ourselves. Be it challenging each other in the gymnasium or counting the calories on the lunch table or getting health screenings done; making ours a no-brainer crazy friendship. With constant encouragement from him, I’ve managed to keep a check on my health status, eat healthy, stay active to be fit and above all be happy. He makes sure there is a simple connect that lets me be who I am, the best I can. 

You see, all the men in my life haven’t stopped believing in me and in all my crazy dreams. And they do more than their share to push me, motivate me, encourage me and support me in all that I want to do. So today I urge you to share stories about the man who supports you unconditionally, who helps you achieve your dream and stay the firm solid support in your life. Say ‘Thank You’ to him and make him the role model for a zillion other men to emulate. 

Now is a good time to start!
