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 against their exploitation by the rich and powerful people of their villages and are now making efforts to earn their living by doing different works. Their projects need certain amount of money to come in shape, some of them wants to expand their already existing businesses while some only needs things like solar lamps or toilets or clean water. Take Runa Layla Shake and Group of West Bengal for example. They are a group of 20 women working in agriculture jobs they just want solar lamps to save their money wasted in kerosene lamps during long power cuts. These lamps will make life of their families more productive and peaceful. Small contributions can make a big change to their lives. You can help this group by visiting below link:



Other women groups like that of Shanti of Tamil Nadu needs money to start masala making business. They have learned these skills of masala making after years of labour. They need only Rs 50,000 for this task a amount which we easily spend on a new smart phone or holidays or any other things of luxury. I am not saying that you should not buy such things I am only suggesting to halt them for a while and help them to make a new start.

Change comes if we take things in our hand instead of blaming system and governments.Mahatma Gandhi once said that empowering a women means empowering a home thus empowering the village,the town,the state,the district and the country. Here by contributing even small amounts for the hope project we can help transforming many lives and in doing so we will also become a part of the movement which is igniting hopes in millions of people.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Lynch Raj

Lynch Raj
An aged man keeping meet in home, a milkman transporting cattle for milking, rumors of child kidnapper, a policeman conducting his duties or you just innocent Muslim boys going home for Eid, this give enough reason to criminal mobs to lynch innocents without any respect and fear for the law. From last three years since the Modi government came in power these lynching of innocent people by mob has increased manifolds many of which are conducted by radicalized Hindu youths in the name of protecting ‘Mother Cow’ and their tradition forgetting about innocent humans they have killed in this process. Latest incident happened with three Muslim brothers going home in a train from Delhi to Mathura after Eid shopping in Delhi. A group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm attacked them and stabbed one Junaid to death while two others are battling for life in Delhi hospital. The brutality with which they were attacked and the hatred filled in the criminal mob can be judge by seeing the blood pai…

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4

Naive Traveler : Delhi Darshan # 4


Delhi as we all know is habitat and destroyed several times in different eras since it always remained the central city for each empire. As a result of these variant rulers from ancient times to the British era, Delhi enjoys the status of being witness to their grandeur and glory. Thus we the people of modern day India are privileged to see and feel that aura and ambiance. This was my fourth trip of sightseeing in Delhi and believe me I need many more days to explore the Delhi to its fullest. 
This time I chose the places known for its haunted experiences like Bhooli Bhatiyar, Feroz Shah Kotla Fort, Rajon Ki Baoli in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Giyas-ud-Din Tughlaq Tomb  and Tughlaqabad Fort.The scorching heat of next day of heat digested all our energy so we also visited Indira Gandhi Memorial an all air conditioned museum which rejuvenated us. Since it was not far from Safdurjung Tomb we also give a visit to that place also. 
Now talking about m…
