Rise and Speak – Equality for LGBTQIA

Each and every individual in this world has a sexual orientation irrespective of how he or she is perceived by the society. All people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, should be able to enjoy and exercise their human rights. Across the globe, there remain many instances where an individual’s sexual orientation or…

Hail That Healer!

The National Doctors’ Day is celebrated in India on July 1 to honor the legendary physician Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. As long as people are being saved, the comparison is purely justified. Maybe the Doctor cannot save his patients in a flick unlike the Almighty but the point is he too can. Let us thank them who heal us against all bad health!

Dr. Devil

Should we honour the medical professionals on this Doctors’ day or boycott it altogether as a forbade to every corrupt doctor? It is obvious that every doctor has not succumbed to the temptation of profiteering in the medical world but where are they? Why don’t we hear about them? Even those indulging in private medical services tend to save lives but it is an act akin to an act of god. Is it justifiable the profession of healthcare to the fallen one?

Remembering the mother!

I do try, though. There are days when I stand in the barren living room or the kitchen and I keep looking. The rooms might be empty but they are haunted by your memories and a multitude of physical reminiscences, too … It’s a pity that I’ll never get to see you scorn when I wished you Happy Mother’s Day. It’s a pity that you had to go too fast and too soon. It’s a pity that I didn’t even get the chance to say a goodbye …

दादी का घर!

अगले दिन रवानगी है। तभी बात ही बात में बच्चे अपनी माँ से पूछ बैठते हैं, “कल दादी के घर पहुँच जायेंगे न?” …
असली सास-बहू ऐसी होती हैं, टीवी सीरियलों वाले नकली और खोखले किरदारों से एकदम अलग। यह भारतीयता है, भारतीय आचार है, भारतीय परिवार है …

Let her be just she!

This post today is not going to preach how or why women are important or what is their role in the society. This is a bunch of thoughts of a lady who resides in every household of this country. We tried to visit her experience of life through her words and eyes to discover the inherent wisdom of thought that womankind holds within and keep spreading all around …

Adolescence – Handle With Care

Adolescence is the tender age between 13 and 19 which is an evolutionary stage towards adulthood. Issues like puberty, sexuality, hormonal changes, drugs, alcohol changes in physical appearance and social life haunt every single person. Adolescents achieve independence with triumph and regret. Avoid, ignore and detest the stereotypes of society. If we want a better future for our children then …

Mahatma Gandhi : A Fighter Against Leprosy

Gandhiji personally nursed Parchure Shastri, a leprosy sufferer in his Sevagram Ashram. Shastri, a Sanskrit scholar, was his friend and jail-mate from his Yeravada Jail days in 1932. Shunned and humiliated all his life, he asked Gandhiji whether he could live and die in Sevagram. Gandhiji, of course, admitted Shastri but added that he would not give him permission to die …

कदम-कदम बढ़ाए जा…

जब तक हिन्दुस्तान है तब तक “जय हिन्द” की गूँज कायम है, जब तक यह गूँज है तब तक नेताजी सुभाष चन्द्र बोस का चरित्र करोड़ों भारतीयों के ह्रदय को राष्ट्रभक्ति के मार्ग पर प्रेरित करते रहने के लिए प्रकाशित है … यह देश जीता रहे, हमें आशीष देता रहे …

ख़ूनी हस्ताक्षर . .

आज़ाद हिन्द फ़ौज का गठन नेताजी सुभाष चन्द्र बोस द्वारा भारतीय स्वातन्त्र्य संघर्ष के महनीय यज्ञ में दी गयी पूर्णाहुति के समान था। हजारों की सेना “दिल्ली चलो” के उद्घोष के साथ बर्मा के रास्ते मणिपुर की तरफ कूच कर गयी थी और “तुम मुझे खून दो, मैं तुम्हें आज़ादी दूँगा” जैसे आह्वान को सुनकर उन दिलेरों ने मानो भारत-माता के चरणों का लाल महावर से शृंगार ही किया था …
