"Nirbhaya - A discussion with Poorna Jagannathan.

Posted in

NIRBHAYA was created in response to the violent gang rape and subsequent death of a Delhi medical student in December, 2012. "Nirbhaya" was the name given to the victim by the press as she lay fighting for her life in a hospital bed following her assault. It means "fearless."December 16th marks the day when the young girl got onto the bus and was brutally raped.
 
If the world is a stage and not a film and we but characters in it, then ‘Nirbhaya’ is the story of everyone whose voice has been silent so long. Here five people tell you stories of their lives, stories suppressed so long and in that the play is as much their coming of age, as it is a telling of the story of Nirbhaya, the name given to the girl gang raped in New Delhi in early 2012.

Surprises in Beautiful Packages

Posted in

Reading is a dynamic journey of surprises. A journey filled with romance, pain, survival and courage, all leading to a destination of satisfaction. Expecting the unexpected should be the norm of reading, yet every once in a while I get hit with a curve ball that gives me the tingles and utmost satisfaction of reading a book that goes beyond my expectations. Am glad to have given myself an opportunity to read.

B'Khush with Art of Living - The Essence of Navratri

Posted in

 As a Bengali girl growing up in West Bengal in India, Navratri meant “ Durga Puja” to me. The grand celebration always started a month earlier with frantic puja shopping, followed by the enchanting Mahalaya in the predawn hours of the day marking the beginning of "Devipaksha" and the beginning of the count-down to Durga Puja, finally the arrival of “Durga Puja” with huge gorgeous pandals, singing and dancing, MCing in many cultural functions held in the puja pandals and eating and meeting friends.

 The “Durga Puja” days in the calendar, were the only days when our parents encouraged us not to study! Beyond this great relief, I never understood or even cared to figure out, what the celebrations were about!

B'Khush with Art of Living

Posted in

 Dear Readers,
 
Welcoming you to my Column, where I wish to share my journey as an Art of Living Teacher with you.
Art of Living has been an integral part of my journey of life. Doing the Part 1 Course, which was then called “Basic Course”, was life transforming for me. My husband who was ill and down with a rare Arthritic pain had to join the Course, but because of his reluctance I went and sat down; with no clue what I was going to experience.
