Empower Her.. She Empowers us..



Poorva is the new face of evolving society which has accepted women in roles traditionally dominated by males. She is 26 and prefers to drive rather sit at home & wait for her wedding day. She is one of the bread earners of the family and commands the same respect as the other earning member of the house, who is her father.

She left studies after failing her 12th board exams, but her exposure to life as a cab driver also made her understand the need for education.

I was fascinated to see how women in this part of the country are respected, supported and encouraged to take up responsibilities. Mumbai dignifies the role of a woman in the society. I could never imagine a lady driving a cab in Delhi, which ironically is not just the Capital of the country but also the Capital of Crime against Women in the country, for which we cant just blame the Police or the System. Yes blaming these two does takes away the responsibility of an individual who owes it to the society.

How else can we justify and remain silent on the molestation of a female journalist in the midst of a protest for the rape victim who lost her life due to brutality of the culprits. At Jantar Mantar that day this young female journalist too raised her voice and also tried to raise her hand at the molester but he succeeded in taking the cover of the same crowd which gathered to raise their voice against the abuse of women. She was a young journalist yet nobody helped her. Finally she had to vent out the incident on Twitter, where too she was bombarded with questions which made her appear more like a culprit than a victim.


There is atleast one Poorva in every house and we can empower many, but is our society ready for it. Collectively have we have to kill the inner demons that demeans the role of Women in our System?

What Motivates &.. When you Lose It ?


One question.. which often clouds the mind when you are Down, when you are Low, when you are Shattered, when you are Hurt, when you are Broken, when you are Hopeless, when your are Helpless, when you feel that You Have come to an End .. is WHAT CAN MOTIVATE ME ?

What can Motivate ? or What Motivates ? Is this really the right question ? because if it is then why you are Down ?  Why you are Low ? Why you are Shattered ? Why you are Hurt ? Why you are Broken ? Why you are Hopeless ? Why you are Helpless ? Why you think you have come to an End ?
Even when you know the answer to the Question What can Motivate ? or What Motivates?  You will still be clouded with any or all of the above feelings and however you may know what can motivate you, YOU STILL TEND TO LOSE IT !

Now this is REALLY THE BIG QUESTION.. WHY YOU LOSE IT? or WHY YOU LOSE MOTIVATION?

Lets first define Motivation.. MOTIVATION is a FEELING which DRIVES you to an OBJECTIVE. If we go by the same definition then YOU LOSE MOTIVATION when you LOSE OUT either on FEELING or on DRIVE or on both of them, this happens because of DISTRACTIONS which affect your SELF-IMAGE.

The answer to the BIG QUESTION.. WHY YOU LOSE MOTIVATION? is because of DISTRACTIONS which affect your SELF-IMAGE.

All of us have created a SELF-IMAGE which usually is bigger than our REAL SELF. We love living for this IMAGE, we keep feeding this IMAGE with achievable GOALS or OBJECTIVES, and these motivate us.

 In simple words we are MOTIVATED for an Objective because it improves our SELF-IMAGE. Thus, we LOSE MOTIVATION by a DISTRACTION, which directly or indirectly affects our SELF-IMAGE and stops us from achieving our OBJECTIVE.

The SOLUTION to keep yourself constantly MOTIVATED is to ignore the DISTRACTIONS and accept your REAL SELF, the way GOD has made you. This REAL-SELF is far more beautiful and real than the SELF-IMAGE you have created.
