Here is me ringing the bell and for women wishing well!!

This is V ringing the bell...
And for Women wishing well!

Change is something that begins with me!
So it's my responsibility...

As a woman what can I do?
To make violence against women a big no nooooo.

What can I do to stem the tide?
And inspire other men and women to follow in my stride...

Why should the bell be rung only by men folk?
Shouldn't we women also this fire stoke???

After all, the circumstances could be anything
But isn't it us, who  must be strong enough to decide

We are lucky that we live in better times
Where there is awareness against such crimes

We can choose to take a stand
And put an end to any torture of this brand

As a woman to safeguard myself
I will ensure there are 3 main things on my must have shelf

The most important thing is financial independence
Come what may I promise myself never ever for finance on anyone ever to be dependent

However hard it may be,
I will always be responsible for providing for me and standing on my own two feet

My education is my shield which I will forever upgrade
I will invest in myself ,my career and never be afraid

I will get trained in self defense techniques
And never ever walk down the helplessness street

That said I will never  hesitate to help any woman I come across who needs my support
I will raise my voice ,take a stand, and aid in charting a better course

Community action always helps
But the biggest change lies within ourselves

People who  are visiting here please make it a point to see this wonderful video from TED talks and encourage more men to take a stand
Women, you will all appreciate this and men we need more of such men like you please...

So men and women,  come let us take the pledge
Join us in spreading the word as together this is one thing we can put forever to rest!!!

To bajao the bell and make the world a safer place for women

This post is for the "Indiblogger, Indichange- Ring the bell" campaign
Keep ringing everyone!!!!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.
(My Nani- Nirmal Khanna)

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
