My Boss Girl today is no ordinary girl. She is in fact, nothing less than a magician with words. If “What to expect when you are expecting” is the bible for your ten months of pregnancy, then Kiran Manral’s Karmic Kids is a definitive guide to the time therafter. What Kirsten Bell says or does in ‘Momsplaining’ today, Kiran said it on her blog ‘Karmic Kids’ . Considered among the most popular blogs in India in it’s time, Karmic Kids was a lowdown of what to expect as a parent and trust me, no one said it better than Manral 🙂
Her story is about overcoming grief, moments of complete helplessness, rising above body shaming, breaking the social norms of beauty and yet reigning it as a crowned queen and many more challenges.
