WE WOMEN

Posted October 24, 2017 from India

Last week and within last few days I happened to come across two interviews of women from different fields of life.

One who was an appointed legislative member of assembly of India and other a social worker . One common factor between both of them was their utmost dedication towards their own work and their passion .

It becomes more clear that more the challenges we face in life the more we are determined to go ahead with sincere efforts and hard work. Isn’t it ironical that pains , hardships, struggles don't bog us down, we instead rise from the shackles of that overburdened challenge of life and time.

More difficult the path gets, more determined becomes the spirit…

Hurdles, obstacles, failure, setbacks make one walk ahead with more determination.

It is the zeal which never fails and stands up against all odds to undertake the journey. Life isn’t simpler but challenges can be resolved and the joy of overcoming every such obstacle makes one forget all the troubles.

Both the women in talks showed extreme passion in their respective field of work, surprisingly ,although Sonalee Shyamsunder is a social worker and runs a NGO also has the idea similar of serving society through her tremendous work for the special children like Praniti Shinde , a politician who exudes her urge to work for the society not to gain limelight but because she derives happiness from completed tasks with satisfaction. At the end of journey or a phase , she says we need to introspect ourself and our own action, what a thought! Indeed, wouldn’t this world, nation change when such women are there in politics and society trying their best to change the face and soul of society by putting their sweat and heart for the betterment of people.

It was heart wrenching to hear about stories about the special children who were specially from the lower middle class or poverty level of society , whose parents are less educated or unaware of the kind of disorders or problems faced by children. Sonalee has worked hard from scratch to raise and create this foundation called URMI FOUNDATION whose activities can be seen here http://www.urmifoundation.com/

Meanwhile to watch Praniti talk about the idea of Smart Villages and not smart cities, it was a tete a tete which brought rays of hope to see upcoming women leaders with such clear and wise vision.She spoke with faith and so much of clarity , where she was aware of her own goals and objectives which are devoid of selfish achievements.

Although both the interviews are in Marathi, a native language of India, I felt to share the links over here , in case one can get it translated.

Last and this week revealed two faces of women who touched the core of several hearts and mine too with their determination and selfless efforts .

The spirit of these two leaders gets reflected here in these few lines :

…and she marched ahead with all her might

Galloping through the hills and vales

The rapier shone golden on dawn

Cutting through nonsensical trails

Oh! Looks, she to the end ,faraway unseen

and rushes past storms with severity

The lone soldier of life walks and rides

progressing through the journey

CHEERS TO THE WOMEN LEADERS !

Dear Soumya,

Thank you so much for sharing these stories and your lines of inspiration.  I love the picture of women leaders making sense of the nonsensical, with the image of her seeing the "unseen."  It's a lovely inspiration I needed today. :)
