Our childhood Aaya or Akka
has left an unfading imprint on our minds. The nanny or the Aaya
has always been the third parent, like a third mother, especially if you live in a nuclear family. She spent more time than your dad ever did. And in some cases even your mom. From doing all the dirty work like washing soiled nappies smelling of poop, taking you for a jolly ride in the park, entertaining you while your parents could have a relatively peaceful dinner occasionally at a restaurant, packing your lunch box to baby-sitting you while your mother was taking a much-needed quick nap
while nursing you – she was always there like the ‘salt’ in the humble daal.
And while she was doing all of this, she was weaving a special bond with you, nurturing you like a guardian while carrying her baggage of traditions, beliefs & experiences that kept mushrooming every now and then; sometimes aiding in taking the right decisions, sometimes baffling them. Well, it has to. No two women can think & act alike. While most women prefer a nanny who can talk in the mother-tongue, English/Hindi or the local language, an Anglo-Indian nanny was like a top-class reward. She can teach your child some rhymes while he is jabbering the first few words in his own language. Even if it has to go like - “Tuinkal Tuinkal Little Star… How I Wonder What You Are…”! You are worried that your baby might pick the wrong phonics & pro-nun-ci-a-tion, but alas, you say to yourself…”All izzz well!”
Despite the superstitions, hygiene factors & the never-ending odd nap times, God is witness that IT IS HARDER TO FIND A NANNY THAN TO FIND A GOOD HUSBAND OR TO PERSUADE HIM TO BUY YOU A DIAMOND NECKLACE. Both come only with great luck.
After several failed attempts to find a full-time au pair for her toddler, Amrita Banerjee gave up her job to look after her kid
. They tried everything – references, agencies, constant reminders to the watchmen, chai-walas, corporation workers, neighbour’s maid, friend’s maids – everything you could think of. But all efforts were futile.
It is difficult to find a trustworthy & reliable full-time nanny who can take care your most precious little one. With cases of kidnapping, heinous crime against the parents, slacking away from feeding the baby (or eating the food herself) or spanking/torturing the baby, many parents are not confident about leaving their kids with a nanny.
For some fortunate couples, they have atleast one of the family members to ensure things are in place & well-taken care of. But what about the rest? Even if both the parents are not working, with the demanding lifestyle, we all love to enjoy the luxury of having a nanny for our child, EVEN IF WE HAVE TO PAY A PREMIUM FOR IT. With factory jobs sprouting all over the country in small towns, it is challenging to find a full-time maid these days.
So what is the solution to the ever-rising demand?
