#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
A heart-felt apology for making you forgo the joys of childhood.
The play area is closed,
You see the slide,
We take you away,
I’m sorry, my child.
You miss the swing,
You’re just two-and-a-half.
We swing you in our arms,
We make you laugh.
We go on a drive-
You look for the train.
The tracks are empty.,
It’s hard to explain.
You were to start school-
And make new friends.
That’s not happening now.
It’s for the good, we pretend.
You cannot play in the sand:
With your friends and your toys,
You play with sticks and stones,
You run behind butterflies.
Maybe tomorrow you’ll remember,
These days with a smile.
Today, I know, is different-
And I’m sorry, my child.

Maleesha who calls herself ‘Princess of Slum’ through her social media captions has now landed herself a space on the cover of Forest Essentials' new campaign.
“Dream, and one day that dream will come true” as said by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, many of us have goals to accomplish and we do dream about achieving them.
A huge dream has come true for a 14-year-old girl from a Mumbai slum area, Maleesha Kharwa. She has been a simple girl with a normal family until some time ago. Today she is the face of the popular skincare brand Forest Essentials.
Kharwa was first discovered by Hollywood actor Robert Hoffman in 2020 who later created a Go Fund Me page for Maleesha.
My voice matters to me, my opinions hold my name. I want to be remembered for what I have disobeyed. That I am unapologetically me.
(Every time I write about myself, a part of me is liberated. This is a lot about women who dare to wear imperfections as their most precious attire. This is a tribute to all those women who believe in their womanhood, who believe they are special, beautiful, and powerful with their flaws. Who face humiliation on a daily basis for they are flawed, but they don’t pay their ears to the society that always points fingers at them. Instead, they sing, they dance, they eat, they drink, they cry, they smile, they fall, they rise, living in their own world of sisterhood, for they know their tribe has their back.)
I celebrate myself every day.
Every time I face rejection in the marriage proposal
