Teacher’s Day special, here is a poem of gratitude where the writer remembers and thanks all those teachers responsible for who she is today.
I still remember my early days in school
And the lovely Carmel Sisters.
Those beautiful morning prayers that
I hum till now.
I got ready for my class, with the intervals of friends…
Those Daisy white flowers, that painted my school wall.
Lovely classes to know, knowledge explained thorough
With silence as golden, discipline as perspective.
Teacher’s used the scales to draw the modules…
I, for a second got scared, at the black board.
But, they smilingly assured, my attitude that counted.
The waves of my work, did score me my marks…
The teachers made it clear or you need to polish my grades.
As I worked up my spirits and the teachers stayed back to help
I thank from my heart, the support of my angels…
The teachers who gave me my medal.
Today, as I look up to my name on the board,
I can’t stop myself from thanking them
How they gave me a name!
Happy Teacher’s Day.

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.
