Farida Rizwan

I am Farida Rizwan, 55, Counselor and Psychotherapist working as Senior Curriculum Developer with Chimple Learning. I am ardent blogger @www.chaptersfrommylife.com and share my life experiences of surviving breast cancer 3rd stage for 25 years, bringing up my children and finding my own identity after giving it up for marriage. I am passionate educationist who believes in inclusive education and inclusive society for all. My special needs daughter who is 26 years of age, refers to regular people as 'you people' and special people as 'we people'. This was a very painful for me and made me realize the way our society makes special needs people feel separated from regular stream. I want everyone to say 'We People'. I am not feminist but I don't believe a gender should give any person a leverage.

‘My Daughter Is A Young Lady With Special Needs. During Our US Trip She Opened Up, But Is Pushed Into Silence In India’

Apologies to patriotic people, but most of us Indians are not sensitive to special needs people & their emotions. Let's make this world a better place for them!

IFB diswasher ad
A Dishwasher Is ‘Like A Mother Who Cares For Every Little Detail’?! Seriously, IFB?

Shame on the IFB dishwasher ad for stereotyping mothers! I love my children and do take care of them, but that doesn’t mean I have to be 'dutiful' all the time.
