Sometimes, most of us feel trapped - in our surroundings or in ourselves. Maybe, it's time we stop limiting ourselves and step out of the boundaries we are stuck in.
Sometimes, most of us feel trapped – in our surroundings or in ourselves. We have things we want to say, do and know but we stop ourselves for a million reasons, sometimes known or unknown. But maybe, it’s time we stop limiting ourselves and step out of the boundaries we are stuck in.
Don’t bound my freedom
Don’t define my boundary
Let me fly high in the limitless sky
The body feels so light floating in the air
Let me dive deep in the vast blue sea
The corals at the bottom are so enchanting
Let me climb to the highest peak of the mountain
The view from the top is breath-taking
Let me venture out in the wild
There is a freshness in its vicinity
Let me sing as if no one is listening
The lyrics of the song adds peace to my soul
Let me dance to my favourite music
The beats empower my inner core
Let me laugh like a child
The roar of laughter keeps the child in me alive
Let me cry my heart out
The tears relieve me from the grief and pain
Let me spend a day in solitude
The quietude calms my mind
Let me shout at the top of my voice
The lungs open up to breathe easy
Let me explore the hidden beauty of the world
The treasure in its bosom is mesmerising
Let me live this life to the fullest
The journey is more beautiful than the destination

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles. Most employees went about their tasks without looking at the person seated on either side of their workstation. Meenakshi was one of them.
The thirty-one-year-old marketing manager in a leading eCommerce company in India sat straight in her seat, her eyes on the screen, her fingers punching furiously into the keys. She was in a flow and wanted to finish the report while the thoughts and words were coming effortlessly into her mind.
Natu-Natu. The mellifluous ringtone interrupted her thoughts. She frowned at her mobile phone with half a mind to keep it ringing until she noticed the caller’s name on the screen, making her pick up the phone immediately.
