Where do i go from where I am now

I never have been in competition with anyone, but am in an urgency to make my part of the world better than the world I started living in, and I am going to keep doing it till I am gone.

All over the world Government policies are in place but in the modern era acceptance and inclusion, is what is majorly lagging.

WE look proudly at a child who has a disabled friend as though he is doing something out of the ordinary.

We allow rapist, bullies, domestic violators to move freely in society, but we shame and force to commit suicide, people of the third gender/ LGBT.

Back home a family is ashamed if her married daughter is divorced ;and also getting a job gets traumatic for the said women, but we don’t mind all the bride burning happening daily.

In a world torn apart by violence, every one of us wants peace and love, and I spread hope that it is possible, and it starts with ourself.

I am not a feminist neither am I a social activist, I still am able to keep my doors open, and travel to insanely DANGEROUS PLACES ,because I know , all mothers I meet just want to raise their kids safely. A girl wants dignity and self-respect and nothing else, and it is not possible if the mindset is not changed.

A drug addict or an alcoholic became one because they were weak, and there was no one to guide them when they were faltering…

I am trying my utmost to raise a village where everyone irrespective of where they belong, can live with dignity and hope. It doesn’t matter if we eat less, but if we have no one to share our emotions with, we are no one, and finally humans are social animals.

I am working towards setting up A SELF sustaining foundation, where children can be free in the true sense of the world.

Hello Basudha,
All of what you list here, the ways that people are so judged and mistreated, a world in which wars continue, are incomprehensible when we can imagine a world in which everyone is respected, and helped when they need help, as you so beautifully suggest. I wish you the best in establishing your foundation. When children have the chance to meet an adult like you, they know then what is possible, and that adults are trying to create that change.
