An evocative poem about finding the light within! Read on.
Chasing her dream,
She stumbled on.
Trying to peek in the future
She skipped on.
Happy to be there,
She breathed life,
As she moved on.
Some that stopped her,
Some that made her forget the path,
Some who enchanted her with their smiles,
While some tried to sway her with their promises.
She waited at each step,
She tried to find the truth in all the ghosts,
With every dismay,
With every heartache,
With every scar,
She swore to keep moving.
She skipped even then,
For her spirit knew,
She would reach
Where she wanted to!
So what its beyond the clouds,
So what its hidden from sight,
She knew in her heart,
Her soul knew she would.
She wanted to hold the star she saw,
She wanted to hold the light she awed,
Little did she realize-
She was the star she saw twinkling,
The universe smiled as it saw her skipping on,
For it saw a star happily strutting by,
Trying desperately to find,
The source of light,
Oblivious to the truth-
That it came from her own twinkle!

We often hear of relationships doomed by distances, of love wearing off when physical proximity ceases, and of growing apart. Most of my life I grew up witnessing the opposite of this. Thus, my belief in growing together whether distant or near stands tall.
When I think back today, I owe a lot of my value system to being a part of army life. This is the love of steel-hearted women who breathe life and passion into the soldiers of the armed forces.
A book by Swapnil Pandey, The Force Behind the Forces, is apt here. The love of these gritty women powers the men to confidently step out and face the most hostile situations. I feel privileged to share a personally witnessed account of this undying love and faith.
When someone accuses you of "too much feminism", what they are really saying is, "I am uncomfortable with you challenging the status quo and disrupting my privilege".
Time and again, there is one phrase that keeps coming up in the social media discourse on feminism. Any guesses?
Ah, no prizes for guessing the infamous “itni bhi feminist” or “too much feminism” phrase, a classic eye-roller for me, and I am sure for many more of my tribe, in the realm of gender equality discussions.
Pray tell me, how can an ideology, a movement be too ‘much’? It’s not salt or the seasoning of your soup where you can go, “Oops, too much salt, only one spoon was required”. Either you stand for what feminism stands for, or you don’t.
