Check out the ultimate guide to 16 return-to-work programs in India for women
Adding to history are the girls who dream, girls with a passion to do remarkable...girls writing her stories.
Pride ran in the veins as I read, PV Sindhu, becomes the first Indian shuttler to clinch a gold medal at the BWF World Championships. The same love and admiration must have filled your emotions too. Our girls can really achieve wonders and more with all potentiality and given scope and support.
Just a retelling. Earlier she won four medals at the World Championships with bronze in 2013 and 2014 and silver medals in 2017 and 2018. And with this victory, she proudly gave a reply to those who questioned and criticized her then.
Here, I quote PV Sindhu, “This is my answer to the people who have asked me questions over and over. I just wanted to answer with my racket and with this win – that’s all”
PV Sindhu is an empowering inspiration to all girls , not just in sports but in every field and niche. As I was going through her story of life and struggles, I realized there are three things that every girl must learn from her to make the dreams come true. Here they go:
Know what you want: We can be what we want. PV Sindhu knew quite early that she wanted to be a badminton player, though she was born to professional volleyball players.
Be passionate: In any walk of life, determination and courage to overcome hardships is the sole way to chase the dream. Be passionate with your want so that no distraction, small or big must divert your focus. There is no alternative to the commitment and hard work.
Never-give-up: Post winning the silver medals, she did not give up and fought hard. So embrace persistence to achieve your goals and give it your everything to attain. No matter what comes, never give up.
Adding to this, girls can achieve their dreams, what they need is the support, belief, and care from their own. The efforts of the parents of PV Sindhu, their endeavor in making her dream come true is commendable.
Dear parents to daughters, just imagine the time of glory and wait that her parents were witnessing, as she battled with her whole potential. Yes, that is the dream of many of you, may not be to watch an ace shuttler creating moments, but your daughter living her dreams. Do not impose customary. Empower your girls towards their dreams. Give them your support and cooperation to fulfil their passion. Marriage can wait unless they want or find someone equal to them.
This is what I have to tell to the parents of daughters…
To The Parents Of Daughters
Girls are born with a universe within.
do not confine to stereotypical don’ts and do.
gift them freedom to wing their dreams;
tell them stories of women
who achieved, who tried.
marriage can wait…
can go by her choice of pace
when she will find her equal.
first, let your girl write HerStory.
It is not that woman didn’t dream prior. Our ancestral women had desires and wants as well. In every age, women tried to achieve something marvelous, but there were hurdles tougher than their might. Though some of them could do achieve, but with many struggles, mostly societal.
Today is different. Tomorrow will be different. Adding to history are the girls who dream, girls with a passion to do remarkable…girls writing her stories. No longer, faces and names that talk about achievements, will be reserved just for the masculine. History has been always told by him, but now, we have stories to be told by women about women and create Herstory.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
