Paan Khaye Uncle Ji Hamaro

Paan Khaye Uncle Ji Hamaro! ( My Uncle Eats Paan)
Manufacturing is a serious business and that too garment manufacturing,you need to be serious every time. Kabhi kabhi to dimaag ki waat lag jati hai. Being associated with that I also remain serious most of the time,but the business itself gave you chances to laugh out loud all your seriousness and worries in the form of some characters involved with it.( I feel like laughing remembering many of them.) Here I want to share an experience with one of our dealer from eastern Uttar Pardesh. I found most of the buyers from the group of people jinki #conditionserioushai but that one incident happened six years ago was special and still lingers in my mind.

Let me first tell you what I was doing in Lucknow. We have a manufacturing business where we make men's ethnic wear sherwani,designer suits,kurta sets,etc. We held biyearly exhibition in different cities to display our new collection for winter and summer. This was for the retailers in…

Winning Is Creating Winners

Winning Is Creating Winners

India Today conclave since its first edition in the year 2002 became a global platform for discussions on big issues of the country and the world. A different theme each year brings ideas of global leaders and personalities responsible for bringing change in world in front of the masses for that particular theme. We can't ignore the thoughts and ideas if a head of a state or a country is speaking,neither we can ignore those brains behind policy making or shaping public opinion through cinema and media. This initiative by India Today group put forward the hopes,aspirations,reality,truth,ideas,etc of common people much like the magazine itself on the bigger and impactful platform.
This years theme of India Today Conclave is 'Winning'. The theme will bring lots of new ideas to the public domain about this topic from the eminent speakers like Amitabh Bachchan,K. Radhakrishnan,Vasundhara Raje,Henrick Scharfe,Jairam Ramesh,etc.Winning is a small word…

Empower Women - The Hope Project

Empower Women - The Hope Project

Every time we hear intellectuals talking about empowering women in various sectors of life,we also become part of those discussions but when it really comes to helping them to make them self sustainable we pull our hands out of such matters. Milaap.org do the opposite of that this organisation is helping women and other groups by providing a platform where each of us can contribute to empower them. The women who are victims of age old Devdasi system are standing on their feet by their strong will power and helps by various NGOs. Milaap comes in between these projects to strengthen their hopes by connecting their cause to millions around the world which then provide them with required money. The money is returned to the lender after a stipulated time. The Hope Project thus uplifting the status of these women entangled in Devdasi system to be master of their own fate instead of reducing themselves to mere Temple Prostitutes.



These women have stood again…

Light A House - The Hope Project

Light A House - The Hope Project
When I read about the Milaap initiative on indiblogger ,I thought it to be a charity programme to help few people by giving them money but after visiting their site I came to know that they are doing exactly what their name suggests i.e amalgamation. They are uniting women who were exploited by Devdasi practice in various Indian villages to the rest of the world and helping them to raise funds so that they can live a respectful life by providing them opportunities to earn their livelihood. In doing so they are also empowering India by making an oppressed section of our society self sustainable.
 The most important thing which I like about this whole process is that the money which one gives is not a charity but a loan which is refundable. This makes borrower responsible for money and their ground partners ensures that borrower use money effectively and for the purpose for which a lender is helping. The money lender is not doing any kind of favor to bo…

No To Racism In India

No To Racism In India


India is known for its quality of amalgamation for years and centuries. Different people came here to make it their permanent home and their cultures and traditions have mixed with values of India so much that with time they have become indigenous part of our country. Another specialty of India is its varied geographical and climatic differences which make its people look different at different places unlike other places in the world where whole country experience almost similar environmental conditions as a result India in itself holds people having similarities with Chinese or African people. But does that change their identity as Indians?
A recent incident in the capital indicates to this black spot on our society. On 2014 January 30 Nido Taniam, an 18 year old Student from Arunanchal Pradesh died after being beaten up mercilessly by locals at a marketplace in the Lajpat Nagararea of Delhi. Nido Taniam was the son of Arunachal Pradesh Congress legislator Nido…

Diary Confessions - 4

Diary Confessions - 4
She has lost all ideals of this great republic. I regarded his father as my elder brother and her as my niece that's why I met her to resolve our differences. It is difficult to believe that power as such adverse effects. A whole network of people is against her today and she is behaving like a dictator,I don't know why she is behaving like that ? Today I read Ramdhari Singh 'Dinkar's poem 'Singhasan Khali Karo Ki Janata Aati Hai'( Vacate the throne,people are coming) which he wrote when India became republic on 26th January 1950. What he wrote at that time inspire us even today. Tomorrow when I will recite it in Ramlila Maidan,I am sure all those suffering from atrocities of Indira will get inspiration from this poem. We will write a new chapter in the history of this great country tomorrow. We will fight for Total Revolution. I don't know what will be it's result on her but I am confident that the change will come.
