Poem: I wish you enough happiness until you finally have to leave, I wish you enough faith until you start to believe. I wish you enough joy until you learn to smile again, I wish you enough love so you don’t relive your hurt and pain.
[As the year comes almost to an end, there are many wishes I would like to send you all. Here’s a poem I wrote for wishing you enough of something so you may understand its significance.
To wish someone enough is to hope they enjoy what they have and appreciate that they were lucky to experience it at all.]
I wish you enough happiness until you finally have to leave,
I wish you enough faith until you start to believe.
I wish you enough joy until you learn to smile again,
I wish you enough love so you don’t relive your hurt and pain.
I wish you enough laughter so you may feel alive,
I wish you enough wealth so you don’t feel deprived.
I wish you enough friendships so you are never alone,
I wish you enough life so you enjoy every milestone.
I wish you enough luck so you never have to live without,
I wish you enough knowledge so you know what life is all about.
I wish you enough of everything you wish in this world,
I wish you enough sight so things you see are not blurred.
I wish you enough losses today so you may enjoy your gains tomorrow,
I wish you enough smiles so you understand any small sorrow.
I wish you enough greetings so you may welcome any pleasures,
I wish you enough in this life so you understand all of life’s precious treasures.

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles. Most employees went about their tasks without looking at the person seated on either side of their workstation. Meenakshi was one of them.
The thirty-one-year-old marketing manager in a leading eCommerce company in India sat straight in her seat, her eyes on the screen, her fingers punching furiously into the keys. She was in a flow and wanted to finish the report while the thoughts and words were coming effortlessly into her mind.
Natu-Natu. The mellifluous ringtone interrupted her thoughts. She frowned at her mobile phone with half a mind to keep it ringing until she noticed the caller’s name on the screen, making her pick up the phone immediately.
