2012 : To WOMEN


On 23 March, 2012 on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, which signals the arrival of the Hindu New year, i achieved a personal milestone, overcame a huge personal challenge.  So moved was i by this achievement which i attained singlehandedly that i made the above Logo.

I had NO idea then, that nine months later  in December Jyoti Singh Pandey would strike like  lightning, rousing every Indian from every corner of our country, in a united outrage at the gang rape.

Yes, 2012, indeed is the year Women AWAKEN and ARISE..

Last evening i was part of a Candle march for Damini and for every  woman , a silent, peaceful protest that her death and sacrifice does not go in vain.


Perhaps the greatest challenge in 2013 would be to sustain the fight for Women's safety and let Damini be a harbinger of CHANGE in our society.  A change of mindsets that grants women RESPECT , SAFETY and EQUAL rights as citizens of India.

Good bye 2012, indeed you were like NO other year of my Life.

May we all enter 2013 with NEW perspectives on every issue that matters to us on a daily basis.

It's time to look ahead to 2013.

The count down begins..................
