There’s no doubt that inclusion of marginalized people and communities, and taking up their issues, cannot just be the work of a select few - it is a cause that requires each one of us to do our bit.
Pillars of Humanity, a recent initiative by Ankibai Ghamandiram Gowani Trust, witnessed leading Bollywood stars like Aditya Roy Kapur, Neelam Kothari, Anissa Malhotra Jain, Armaan Jain, Aayush Sharma, Krystle Dsouza, Sujoy Mukherjee and Supriya Mukherjee and many more. The chief guest for the event was the Honorable Governor of Maharashtra, Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
Pillars of Humanity is an initiative by Ankibai Ghamandiram Gowani Trust and conceptualized by the trustee Nidarshana Gowani. Nidarshana Gowani is a leading real estate entrepreneur, social activist and philanthropist who has been working for the welfare of society.
Pillars of Humanity was held at St. Regis in Mumbai on 25th September, in an effort to provide different communities an opportunity to come together and walk for humanity.
Nidarshana Gowani is a leading real estate entrepreneur, social activist and philanthropist. She has been honoured as one among the Top 50 Most Influential Indians across the world by Elite Magazine.
Through her trust, Nidarshana Gowani has been instrumental in the construction and operations of various Schools, Colleges, Temples and Dharamshala which provide educational and spiritual upliftment for millions of Indians.
Keen to empower women, Nidarshana Gowani works through various programs to empower the transgender community, acid attack victims, widows of the army officers and women from the tribal areas. During the pandemic, her primary focus was on providing vaccines to the elderly.
Pillars of Humanity had walks presented by different communities such as transgender people, cancer patients, old age home residents, acid attack victims, sex workers and tribal women. Each of the walks for a social cause had leading entrepreneurs walking with them indicating the unity in the society.
During each walk the community stood united, displayed solidarity and added vibrant colors to the event. A few of the entrepreneurs who walked at the show were Naina Parekh, Nisha Jamwal, Shweta Wardhan, Ajita Italiya, Smriti Sinha, Saanya Mulaani, and many more.
What was clear from the presence of people from so many walks of life coming together was the need for more conversations with people outside of one’s own narrow boundaries. The support of the enthusiastic audience for each walk added to this conviction.
The walk for humanity was supported by other well known women across industries such as Shaina NC, Manju Lodha, Sumita Sinha and others who extended their support to the community.
We need more such events filled with positive energy, passing on a strong message to the world at large that we are in it together and can do better when we unite.

From all news reports, clearly, Aftab Poonawalla seems to be a psychopath, and It was a well-strategized story of domestic violence, abuse, subjugation, and a well-planned murder.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence, gaslighting, murder, and abetting violence, and may be triggering to survivors.
One case has gripped the nation and I do not need to mention which. My problem is with how the news reflects a victim’s character. The disrespect we show to someone who was long abused and lives no more is appalling. The disservice we do to her through spoken and written words lies in the sensationalizing of the entire case.
How do you spot a crazy human? They do not have two horns and red eyes. They may have no empathy but will show it to lure the victim, just like a child abuser lures a child with candy. Their grooming styles may vary but it is mostly about creating an untrue sense of safety and security around the victim. They present themselves as this effortless savior, an ultimate generous destination for a mentally and emotionally vulnerable person.
Fathers play a crucial role in nurturing and raising children, so why isn't paternity leave considered essential?
Some time ago, Bollywood couple Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were in the news, yet again. An entertainment website, Bollywood Hungama, reported that the expectant father, Ranbir, wished to take paternity leave to spend time with his baby when it arrived.
The website claimed that the actor would not be signing new films for the time being. He would take care of the child, while his wife Alia would return to work at the earliest.
One would think the internet would laud this sweet and thoughtful gesture. Instead, Ranbir got trolled for his decision to be a stay-at-home dad. Netizens made fun of him; they claimed that it was because he had no offers in the pipeline, and Alia was far more successful than him. Others claimed that it was the right decision – his recent films (other than Brahmastra) had bombed, and it was time he reflected on his roles.
