When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.
She saw behind and he wasn’t there…
She searched everywhere, but it was despair
She called for help but could find no one to care
She was left with the green trees and darkness to stare
She welcomed the dawn with her lips quivering for water
Rain it was, which kissed her as if God had the answer
Slowly and steadily she stood up as the day turned brighter
Her eyes hovered trying to find her lost shelter
It was a bad night and everything’s gonna be alright
She said to herself trying not to remember the fight
How her partner had hit and stamped her last night
But after that he left her here and that she thought was not right
She started to walk endlessly with the hope to get back
And to her joy she could feel she was reaching her track
Here she pondered and something held her tight
Which way to go was it the time to decide?
One led to the world which didn’t want her
The other went to a journey she always dreamt for
Quickly she covered her face with the silk scarf she wore
And started walking towards her dreams to never return she swore
With sky as the limit and confidence her friend
She started running without even knowing the end
Life had so many colours and yes she was ready to blend
She decided this is how her entire life she was going to spend
“Koshish” she called herself and erased her past from her mind
Her talents were enough to help her win and surely people were kind
Work was her worship and happiness her solace and both she twined
To keep herself alive from within and like a star she shined…

Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education
Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education.
Come Monday morning, homes with young families across the country are in a chaotic yet familiar dance. Ceiling fans are turned off, and lights turned on with a vengeance.
Teeth are cleaned, and breakfasts are shovelled down. Uniforms and shoes are thrown on, and heavy school bags are picked up as parents and kids alike make a mad dash for the door.
But if you look closely, the underlying reason for anger and frustration in both groups of women is the same. It is the anger amongst women in being told what (or not) to wear.
A twenty-two-year-old Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, was detained by the morality police for breaking the country’s strict dress code. While in custody, Mahsa passed away. It was alleged that Mahsa was beaten in custody, leading to her death. An allegation, the Iranian police have dismissed as baseless.
The incident has sparked protests all over Iran. Women are taking off and burning their headscarves. They are chopping off their hair in public squares. These acts of defiance are against a regime that makes the hijab mandatory for women.
Closer home, in Karnataka, a few months back, young girls in PUC colleges were protesting against the administration’s decision to ban headscarves in the colleges. They were demanding their right to education while following the tenets of their religion. The matter was taken to the Karnataka High court, where the women lost. The matter is now sub-judice in Supreme Court.
