Chaman ji’ I AM WITH YOU (#ALetterToHer)

(During my BPO career, some five years back, I got to meet a women really passionate about her performance at work. She looked more than thirty which is an age of very few call center workers. She was not very friendly with others in our team, though not rude with anyone for sure. It was once, that both of us were chosen for an upskill training and being very talkative I happen to make her somewhat open to me. Chamanji had an excellent tone, confident voice and kind of perfect spoken English but lacked in her computer proficiency. However, her spirit was really high and I helped her in learning MS Excel. She used to talk to her sister and her kids in the breaks. One day while she was telling me that she was not able to take proper sleep as she used to reach home at 4 in the morning and woke up at 6 in the morning to get her kids ready for school. Her explanation provoked me to ask her about her husband. With a bit of hesitation Chamanji told me in short where she had come from. She was lady from Hyderabad who was married in her college days only and has two young kids.  But being a victim of domestic violence, she had left her husband. The recall of her bad days got her emotional and the day came to an end. I was on leave for a week from next day and I got a better opportunity which made me resign from my then existing job. On my last day in that workplace while I was clearing off my dues and other formalities of relieving, I saw Chmanji sitting alone and quite again. It was probably not the right to talk to her on such sensitive issue, so I write up a letter for her..)

Dear Chamanji, 

You are an ideal for me and most ladies of our country, I believe. Even after being a single parent responsible for managing uniform to homework of your kids, what a zeal you own even at this age! I was earlier impressed with your hardwork and confidence but after knowing where you have come from. You inspire me stand up against all odds. Though I also apologies if I hurt you by asking about your husband. I had a thought of speaking over the responsibility that men should share in a family and there was no intention of mocking over your personal life tragedy.

You are women of tremendous power, someone I can relate with Godess Durga. I salute the way you manage such an appraisable performance at work even after not being able to take proper sleep for weeks. You are not just courage but also compassion. How much care about your kids! How kind you are to everyone even on those who have kind of spoiled your life. I noticed you only used respectable words for your husband who has forced you to forsake restful afternoons and peaceful nights inside a home. At first, I had felt really bad about that man who just thought about the color of your skin and could not see your beautiful heart. But now, I think you are right respecting him more than ever because he has made you what you are. Just think how people clap for you when you make shocking customer satisfaction record and all of us clap for you.

You know what, there very few women like you in this world. So always be this. Though you said people don’t respect women who stand up for their rights, I say I am with you. I not only support you, I respect you and appreciate you.

You know, I feel had the first women ever compromised with domestic violence and had stood up firm against this, it would not have been a story of every next door. Those who said portrayed Indian women as a silent doll and did not allow her to raise voice against that are the people responsible for the sufferings of all women who had to live that afterwards. Even women rarely support women. They bear it and want others to bear it on the name of culture and sanskars. But I tell you those are clever women who remain cultured figures in society but own bad heart inside their soul.

Thank God I have met someone as nice as you in this life. I may be in other city or somewhere away from you but my heart will always pray for your happiness and dreams.
God bless you! 

Your fan and well-wisher.. 

Meena Kandasamy’s latest novel, When I Hit You, would for sure help in battling against domestic violence.  I am so excited to read it.

#ALetterToHer. - The world is to conquer and move ahead

Honestly, I have never met with any such women who has faced domestic violence of any kind. I feel I have never sensed that dullness of faces could be a domestic violence shock. Or perhaps, if I have, I could not find traces of sadness and grief behind the smiling faces around me. It may also be that I have ignored the grins and nods being a super positive soul, who looks at only happiness all around. I have also not proactively tried to question at someone’s personal life to know why someone I know is silent or sad. Though I also feel, why none of them opened up ever? 

Is it like none of the ladies in my relation, friend circle or neighborhood or anyone I was ever in touch or I am now, took me as friendly as to share their hearts out?

Howbeit, I am well aware that it’s not easy to come out and openly express about an abusive married life of once own. We (most of the) girls are programmed to get tortured for the sake of the family. We fear of kid’s future, we fear of aging parents and we even fear of this society that never stands indifferent to a suffering women. It doesn’t matter if a woman is married or not. Even the girls, who are educated and independent, can be a victim of an abusive relationships. It also doesn’t matter if they are urban or rural, educated or uneducated, women are often in offensive relationships. So, here is a letter to all those girls who have gone through those stony days and now are done with it.

Dear Unfearful,

First of all, let me applaud for your decision of breaking shackles and coming out of a hateful life that you were living in. As a married woman, I can understand how it feels when someone as important as your life partner shatters your dreams and treats you like an object.

The first thing I vowed on the day of my marriage was that I shall do everything that it takes to maintain my bond of love with my husband. And I know that almost every girls enters into marital bond with the same hope and similar dedication. Our parents presume that marriage will protect us and let us have a small world of our own. However, sometimes the pressure of keep adjusting in a new family ruins our own identity.

When one’s relationship with her life mate becomes painful, when there is no respect and absolutely no LOVE, the girl slowly enters into the slaying.  When she is abused every day, when suddenly home no longer remains the best place in this world for her, it is a clear indication of her fall and betrayal from her own family members. She keeps on bearing this with the hope of change and better days in future. Unfortunately if, she is let down repeatedly, she feels scared. She finds herself, stunned that her own family members are doing this to her. She tries to hide it from the outer world, thinking this would be more painful for her close ones. She even thinks there is no way out! Dear, I can only imagine what you must have gone through. Possibly, you have seen even more mental and physical humiliation. I can only build castles in the air as only you can voice what you have actually gone through!

You know, this world is driven by certain rules. Every rise has a fall and every fall can again see a rise. I am not sure in which stage you are right now. If you have left those throbbing days of violence behind and have started your life again with the hope of good days back, I am really happy for you! I would like to give a pat on your back to defeat the sorrows and to make happiness again. This is the right decision and this is the only way to get your dignity back. Live for yourself, for your kids if you have and for your close ones who always want to see you gleeful. However, if you still reminiscing those moments every day, let me tell you this is never going to heal you. Those scars need a treatment and only the euphoria of happiness and confidence can help you. You have to create it. You have to leave your past and look for future.

You have already proved the world that an abusive relationship is not for giving in. It needs correction with re-establishing the purpose being in that relationship again. But at times there is no solution; then like you did, one should break the cycle of getting traumatized every day.

Dear, I am with you and many of women like me are also along. Speak up if you need help. Talk if you feel distressed. And make yourself stronger than ever. Be examples for others who are going through abusive life as you have seen. Inspire them to not to feel alone and help them to come out of it. The aim of this letter is not to remind you that once you were venerable. With my letter, I want to convey my feelings as I see you on a brightening path. Feel valued and feel empowered. The world is to conquer and move ahead!

Lots of strength and love from my side.

~ Shipra


Meena Kandasamy’s latest novel, When I Hit You, is a smart, bold and courageous take on traditional wedlock in our country. I want to read it to feel empowered and  encouraged. Women should know that domestic violence cannot stop them living a life that they deserve.

ShahRukh is Twenty-Five Years Old now..

One of the men who ruled over the hearts of a number of girls for over a generation has recently turned twenty-five. Yes, it is the King Khan of Bollywood I am talking about. You don’t need to get surprised as even I know ShahRukh has crossed fifty-one of his age since I am talking about the time period he has completed in the Bollywood. 

ShahRukh Khan started his career in Hindi movies as an actor in 1992 film Deewana. In that film he was cast against charming Divya Bharti in a love triangle. I still remember the bike riding style of King Khan in the song of this film “koi na koi chahiye pyar karne wala”. Almost all of us can visualize him playing on mandolin in a super romantic way that he did in DDLJ. Shahrukh clinched the title of lover boy with his romantic hits. While the continuous big hits in Bollywood made him the King Khan on Industry. He also lived unforgettable roles in Darr, Baazigar and Anjam while playing negative characters. ShahRukh won the heart of even critics when he played strong roles in Devdas, Swades and Chak De India. 

Well, Shahrukh's role in recent movies like Chennai express, happy new year, Dilwale and Fan proved that he is still the King of Bollywood. He is the real Raees as he has a huge fan following in India as well as abroad and is one of the highest paid actors in Industry. 

ShahRukh’s talent has been awarded by not just Filmfare but also with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award of our country. He has also been honored by Order des Art et des Letters and Legion de honor by the French government for the highest merits he possess. 

The Actor, Producer and television personality, Badshah Khan of Indian Film industry has been winning our hearts since 25 years now and I am sure he will continue doing so as the promos of his upcoming “Jab harry met Sejal” have clinched remarkable likes after getting released recently.

Dear King Khan, your relation with Bollywood can be named as a Rab ne Banayi Jodi. Congratulations for your heart winning twenty five years.. From we, the Fan of yours.

जब मैं ऑफिस से घर देर से पहुंची..

कल मैं ऑफिस से घर देर से पहुंची. मेरा ३ साल का बेटा मेरे साथ ही creche जाता है जो मेरे ऑफिस में ही है. पर कल शाम एक जरूरी मीटिंग होने की वजह से बेटे को साथ नहीं ले गई थी और वो अपने पापा के साथ घर पर ही था.

कल का दिन कुछ अलग सा गया. ऑफिस बस में बैठी तो ऐसा लग रहा था कुछ घर पर भूल आई हूँ. आदत सी हो गई है बेटे को सीने से लगा कर बस की सीट पर बैठने की. फिर बस से उतरी तो सब लोग पूछने लगे "आज विभू नहीं आया..?" मुझे बड़ा अच्छा लगता है कि मेरे बेटे में सबके साथ घुल मिल जाने का गुण है, वो बस में साथ आने वालो से लेकर ऑफिस के गार्ड्स, सिक्योरिटी स्टाफ और कई सारे ऑफिस के लोगो को अच्छे से जानता है. जिस दिन वो ना आए ऑफिस साथ, तो सबको उसकी कमी महसूस होती है..उन सबको बताते हुए कि आज विभू घर पर ही है, आगे बढ़ी.
ऑफिस में नाश्ता किया तो फिर से उसकी याद आई. रोज उसे भी बाते बनाते हुए नाश्ता कराती हूँ और कल चुप चाप जल्दी-जल्दी नाश्ता करके सीट पर पहुंच गई. फिर पतिदेव को फ़ोन मिलाने कि कोशिश करने लगी ताकि हाल चाल ले सकू. पर फ़ोन लग ही नहीं रहा था, शायद नेटवर्क में कुछ प्रॉब्लम थी. बीच-बीच में फिर से कोशिश करती रही पर बात नहीं हो पाई. हार कर पतिदेव को चैट विंडो पर लिखा "फ़ोन नहीं लग रहा है, विभू का हाल लेना था..उसने कुछ खाया..? परेशान तो नहीं कर रहा..?" पतिदेव ने जब मैसेज देखा तो उसका जवाब भी दिया "विभू ठीक है, परेशान नहीं कर रहा.."

पूरा दिन ऐसे ही बीत रहा था बेटे की आवाज सुने बिना, सुबह भी उसे सोते हुए ही छोड़ कर आई थी. मन नहीं लग रहा था. जैसे ही कोई पूछता "मीटिंग घर से लोगी या यही ऑफिस से..?" और मैं कहती " ऑफिस से..", लोग तुरंत अगला सवाल पूछते "विभू कैसे रहेगा फिर शाम को.. creche तो बंद हो जाएगा तब तक..?" फिर मैं सबको बताती कि "आज उसे लेकर नहीं आई हूँ..वो घर पर पापा के साथ है.." शाम हो गई और मीटिंग का टाइम हो गया, मैं थोड़ी देर के लिए अपने बेटे को भूल मीटिंग में लग गई.

घर पहुंचते-पहुंचते ८.३० से ज्यादा हो गया था, बेटे ने घर के दरवाजे पर मुझे देखते ही कहा "मम्मा आ गई तुम.." तो मन भर आया मेरा.. १२ घंटे से ज्यादा समय मैंने उससे दूर बिताया था कल.पर उसकी ख़ुशी देख कर सारी थकन और अपराध बोध निकल गए मन से. फिर बेटे के साथ बाते की, पतिदेव से सारा दिन का हाल चाल पूछा..उन्होंने बताया कि ठीक रहा दिन, विभू ने परेशान नहीं किया. दोनों साथ में खेले खूब. जब विभू छोटा था तो उसे हम एक गाना सुनाते थे..कल फिर से वो ही गाना पतिदेव ने उसे सुनाया और बेटे को बड़ा पसंद आया. मुझे भी वो गाना फिर से सुनने को मिला पर इस बार बेटा भी उसे मज़े से गुनगुना रहा था.
एक दिन साथ रह कर पापा और विभू की दोस्ती अलग परवान चढ़ गई थी. जबकि मैं सारा दिन उससे दूर थी, बेटा पापा से ज्यादा लाड कर रहा था. बड़ा अजीब लगा .."देखो इसे, मैं सारा दिन इसे याद करती रही..और ये है कि पापा पापा कर रहा है..वैसे तो मम्मा के आगे पीछे लगा रहता है..पर आज जैसे इसे फरक ही ना पड़ा हो.. "

ये मातृत्व भी ऐसा अजीब सा अहसास है ना? बच्चो से प्यार इतना हो जाता कि कभी-कभी हम उन पर अपना अधिकार समझने लगते है. इसे ही possessive होना कहते है. बच्चो को तो बस प्यार से मतलब होता है वो अगर माँ दे तो माँ के हो जाते हैं और अगर पापा दे तो पापा के. उन्हें  इससे फरक नहीं पड़ता कि सामने कौन है, वो तो बस स्नेह की डोरी में बंधे होते हैं जिस तरफ स्नेह ज्यादा मिला उसी तरफ खिंचे चले जाते हैं. कल मेरे पतिदेव ने भी ऐसा ही कुछ काम किया, बेटे को सारा दिन इतने मज़े से रखा कि उसे मम्मा की कमी ही नहीं महसूस हुई. थोड़ी जलन मुझे जरूर हुई पर एक गहरी ख़ुशी भी मिली कि हम दोनों ही अपने बेटे के लिए पूरी तरह से समर्पित हैं. और इसके लिए हम, पति-पत्नी , एक-दूसरे की भी पूरी मदद कर रहे हैं. जैसे कि कल मैं ऑफिस में देर तक रुकी और पतिदेव ने बेटे को संभाला सारा दिन.

जीवन जीने का यही आनंद हैं सच में.. जब आप अपने सपनो को पूरा करते हुए अपने बच्चो के सपनो को भी ध्यान दे पाए.. मैं खुद को भाग्यवान समझती हूँ कि मेरे जीवन में आनंद की कोई कमी नहीं हैं..

Save your child from Drug Abuse

On International Day Against Drug Abuse today

What is the issue?
Drug abuse is the intake of toxic substances like Heroin, Opium, Alcohol, Cannabis and Propoxyphene etc. which causes an addiction and serious harm to mind and body of a person. A person involved in drug abuse is in immense distress. Once taken, these toxic substances generate an extreme desire to repeat its intake in a person. It is really very hard for an addicted person to refrain himself or herself from drug intake despite owning knowledge of its harms and a wish to overcome. The life of a person involved in drug abuse is very miserable and ruined, if timely and necessary assistance is not provided.
Researchers reveal that children and adolescents are most likely to become victims of drug abuse. This is probably because childhood is a time for experimentation. Children and teenagers often become a victim of it just because of their curiosity, though lifestyle, friends, cultural factors and psychological factors also expose children to drug abuse.

How serious is the issue?

According to Childline India:
* Around 63.6 % of patients of drug abuse who come for treatment are introduced to drugs at below 15 years of age.
* In India, around 13.1% of the people involved in drug and substance abuse are 20 years in age.
* The 0.4% and 4.6% of total treatment seekers in various states of the country were reported to be children.
* A World Health Organization study states, "If current trends continue, 250 million children alive today will be killed by tobacco." The business of drugs is third largest in the world only after the business of petroleum and arms.

What causes the issue?

National Institute on Drug Abuse marks the following common causes that develop risk of drug abuse, especially among children:

  • Unbalanced environment at home such as, mental illness of the parent or parents’ involvement in drugs
  • Unhealthy relationship with parents
  • Inadequate supervision of parents
  • Use of drugs by friends/peers
  • Undesirable parental behavioral
  • Poor parenting leading to loneliness or severe dark space in a child’s heart
  • Poor achievement in school

Conditions similar to the listed above mixed with availability of drugs and/or company of friends who are exposed to drugs exponentially increases the risk of a child to become a victim of drug abuse.

Hence, right parenting is a must to protect children and adolescents from the miserable life of a drug abuse.
Today, that is, 26 June is the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, the message of United Nations urges to all parents, “Listening to Children and Youth is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe”. So, always listen to your child and provide them right nurturing, care and home environment to prevent their involvement in any kind of drug abuse.

Few more days for GST to roll out.. Know what changes this would bring to a common household’s life.

Goods and service taxes, as the name suggests, are the taxes levied on the goods and services we consume. Currently most of these goods and services come under a taxation policy that imposes many different taxes on them like excise, VAT, service tax. If you have noticed any of your recent restaurant bills, you can find changes under various category of taxes. This is what the GST would be replacing. There would be only one category of taxes shown on such bills after 1 July 2017.    

For GST imposition the goods and services we consume are categorized under four major heads. Thus you can say that there are 4 tax slabs under GST. The following points are worth noting regarding this new taxation system:
  • The first category of goods include Edible oil, spices, tea, coffee on which current taxes make upto 9% however, GST would be only 5% on these goods. So you next purchase of these daily needs is going to be cheaper.
  • The second category is of 12% GST that would be levied on Computers, processed food on which we currently pay taxes between 9 to 15%. Thus, few goods in this category would get cheaper and few would become a bit costlier.
  • The third category of products include Soaps, oil, shaving sticks etc. which would be charged at 18% under GST reforming the current taxes that charge between 15 to 21 %.
  • The last category of goods are luxury goods and include luxury cars, tobacco, aerated drinks which are surely going to become costlier under GST which is going to charge 28% instead of currently levied taxes that make up only 21%.
  • GST will make small cars, DTH service, eating at restaurants and daily need products like soaps, shampoos, chocolates cheaper for us.
  • Buying smartphones, buying jewelry and buying or renewal of insurance is going to be costlier with GST.
  • Online shopping may also become a less goods deal with GST.
  • Electric fans, coolers, LED TVs and readymade clothes are some of the useful electronic items that would go cheaper with GST.
  • Courier services, staying at start rating hotels and eating at five starts would become costlier.
Note that road taxes and toll taxes are not part of GST so they are going remain as they are.

Fruity Fun of Summers

The summers have always been special as they bring vacation and reasons that you can plan a hill station holiday. However, one more thing that makes summers so special is the availability of a range of mouth-watering fruits through this season. Let me make you count these juicy delights of this season; mango, watermelon, litchi, apple, plum, kiwi, cucumber, guava, black plum (jamum), musk melon and many more.

Though we get most fruits all season these days in supermarkets, the real taste of these can only be tasted in their season according to me. All these fruits are not only tempting to our taste buds but also highly nutritious for us.

Most summer fruits like plums, melons, litchi etc. are rich with water content which is a must have in the summer season. They help you get calories (energy), calcium, vitamins, fiber and minerals. Summer Fruits like mango are source of vitamin K which is very good for our bone health. Summer Fruits like black plum (Jamum) are very helpful in controlling blood sugar and thus prevent diabetes. Summer Fruits like guava are rich in fiber and sooth our digestion system and prevent constipation.

Besides being a source of iron, calcium, potassium, carbohydrate, folate, calories and vitamins, the summer fruits are also rich in antioxidants. The king of summer fruits, that is mango, is rich with antioxidants that prevent macular degeneration that causes aging in people. Thus, summer fruits’ consumption is helpful in keeping us younger and beautiful too. These are delighting natural sources of nutrition that nourish our eyes, hair and skin.
These fruits are must haves not because of what they provide us but also because of what they take away from us. Consumption of summer fruits prevents obesity, cancer, asthma, heat stroke, dehydration and many other diseases that none of us would ever wish to meet with. 

So, go on pick these juicy delights of summer season before the season gets over because you know should not miss the nourishment they serve you with.

The Adopted Dad Of Superstar Rajinikanth

Yes, you read it right! Superstar Rajinikanth had adopted his father Mr. Kalyana Sundaram 5 years back.

When I shared this fact with one of my office mates, he joked and said: “Ab wo 'the great Rajinikanth' hai.. wo bachche nhi, direct Papa adopt kar skta hai..”  But jokes apart, this is a beautiful truth that touched me till deep.

We all know, other than his movie zing and bang, actor Rajinikanth is also famous for his simplicity and humbleness. Through his magnificent acts, he took a completely new gesture when he adopted Mr. Kalyana Sundaram as his father. Mr. Sundaram is himself an epitome of selflessness and humanity. I would call him the finest example of simple living and high thinking.

If you look at his picture, he looks like an average man. But what a soul he is! He has dedicated his entire life to the welfare of poor and needy.

A gold medalist in library science, and an MA in literature and history, Mr. Kalyana Sundaram, is a philanthropist, who prefers to perform his noble deeds quite silently. Mr. Kalyana Sundaram is a social worker from Tamil Nadu, and is involved in selfless services for orphans and needy people. He worked as a Librarian for 30 years and donated his entire salary for helping others. So how he managed to meet his own needs for living? Well, the noble soul also worked in a hotel to get some money to meet his both ends. Mr. Sundaram also donated a sum of Rs. 1 lakh too, that he had received as salary arrears. The district collector of Tamil Nadu had received this amount from Mr. Sundaram who made this charity for orphans.

The representer of the best of humanity, Mr. Kalyan Sundaram, is the first person in the world to spend his earnings from entire life for the social cause. The man of extraordinary living and generosity has been awarded by the UNO as one of the Outstanding People of the 20th Century. He has also received a number of other national and international awards. These awards have brought Mr. Sundaram more than 30 crors of cash, the entire of which he has used for the charity purpose.

The end of his working life could not bring his magnanimity to an end. After getting retired from services, in 1998, Mr. Kalyanasundaram decided to expand his social services through 'Paalam', that is the NGO he is running. This NGO facilitates education to poor children, medical attention to the poor, runs blood donation camps and provides free counseling to the needy.
Though, Mr. Kalyansundaram remained a bachelor for life and served to many who would look at him as father, he is adopted by another noble soul as his father. Superstar Rajini is also a known do-gooder and I believe this is what makes him the perfect son of his adopted father. Like Mr. Sundaram, Rajanikath also does most of his social work and charity without making any publicity of it. I am sure that it was a move caused by the philanthropic Rajanikath that he adopted Mr. Kalyana Sundaram as his father.

A father-son relation like that of Rajanikath and Mr. Kalyansundaram is a peculiar and adorable one in the world. Mr. Palam Kalyansundaram is one of the few fathers who are a true inspiration for the society. Mr. Kalyana Sundaram, I feel, is the richest man in this world who has donated his lifetime earnings for the betterment of people. When asked about his inspiration, Mr. Kalyana Sundaram said his mother taught him these three lessons and he is till now following them:
  1. Never go greedy
  2. Whatever you earn, donate 1/10 of its part to the needy
  3. If you work for the good of a living soul every day, you will stay happy for the lifetime.
A big salute to Mr 'Paalam' Kalyana Sundaram!

Only unconditional love gives you a true purposeful happiness in life.
 ~ Mr Kalyana Sundaram

Vibhu & Papa -- Day 2

Papa love teaching Vibhu slokas and chants. He even recites verses from Ramcharit Manas so that Vibhu can learn and catch them. It's really amazing that with time Vibhu is actually master in them. 

But naughty Vibhum whenever asked to revise them, he never listens to Papa. 

One day when Papa asked Vibhu to revise 'Karpoor Gauram..' this happened..

Vibhu & Papa -- Day 1

One Day Vibhu was doing what he should not. He was littering things, wasting water, messing up with bed-sheet And then Mumma screamed "Vibhu Shaitani Nahi.." 

She even snatched Vibhu's water bottle as he was spitting water everywhere. Vibhu started wailing and this happened when Papa asked "Vibhu kya hua..?"
