Episode 81 – Father’s Month – Lahar Joshi – The Ad Dad Who Stayed Back

The 3rd episode of Father’s Month features the first guest of the series, a maverick advertising professional, Lahar Joshi. Some of you might have read about him and others might have not. The stories he shared, will hit home for any parent, especially those of twins.

Lahar Joshi is rarity in India, he decided to stay back home and care for his twin boys, while his wife resumed work. “Why?” you may ask, well, we urge you to ask “Why not?”. Lahar did not mince any words as far as his parenting style is concerned.

One takeaway from this episode is that, the current generation of dads don’t just believe in contributing equally in parenting responsibilities but also put it into action.

Highlights of the episode are :-
1. What’s it like to be a stay-at-home dad? What prompted Lahar to take this step?
2. Marriage leave
3. What society thought of his move?
4. Work from Home before it become a norm for all
5. Managing twins
6. Parental responsibilities
