My (s)hero

Five years ago, in the dark corner of a big quiet home,I logged into a website for women. For sheer interest in the inspiring stories of women worldwide. I forgot my own problems as each day I found myself find time to log into the same website to let these women move me to become my own person, find my own voice. In six months time I registered and became a member ofWorld Pulse-the largest global uniting force that brings women together to voice their issues and offer solutions.

Five years have gone past.I have transformed to a woman that I always wanted to be but did not know 'how'.World Pulse changed me forever.

Today I want you to meet the Founder of World Pulse-the woman who is World Pulse.The woman who visualized how to empower women worldwide by giving them digital inclusion.The friend who always believed in me as much as she believed in women from the 190 countries on World Pulse. My dearest sister, our mountain. Jensine Larsen- My (s)hero all the way !!

Today she champions for women to 'break the silence' around menstruation and wears red for me for my global campaign to banish myths and taboos around menstruation(This is a picture on my global campaign on Facebook titled 'Breaking the Silence').

Women on World Pulse come from one united community. We know how we look, how we feel and how we think. But most of all, we know we are there for each other in any possible manner that we can be for another sister. No matter which country, religion, caste or creed, we recognize a World Pulse sister from afar in the way she is so close to technology to connect to another sister, taking every opportunity and leaving no stones unturned to effect the life of another woman, another sister.

That is the spirit of World Pulse.

Thank you, dear sister Urmila, for writing so well what I (and many of us in World Pulse) feel about Jensine, World Pulse, and each other.

Dear sister Yvette,

This story is dedicated to the spirit of World Pulse and sister Jensine who holds that together. It is my dream to one day walk into the World Pulse office and meet the people who make World Pulse and tell them of the crossroads, the decisions, the path and the perspectives and how World Pulse had been a part of it in my life . Maybe telling them our story will strengthen them and move them to do it for as long as it takes.

I met you on World Pulse too! Look where we are today from "A little egg curry to lasagna' !

Love and loads of hugs Yours Urmila Chanam India

Dear Charlotte,

I agree with you- it is truly a blessing to have the opportunity to meet other women, women who listen, who have love and understanding but what is most unique is women who want to help you with whatever they have.

Welcome to our home here. We will be there for each other.

Love and prayers your way Urmila Chanam| India

A WORLD THAT HAS A HEART AND A MEMORY

I value all my sisters who are here to extend to another woman and most times not even realizing what that means to the one who receives. Janekalu, let us build each other brick-by-brick so that there is a world that has a heart and a memory of the wrongs.

Hugs and prayers

Sister Olanike, There was a time in my country not long back when offices blocked any form of social media because it was seen as a distraction. And there is a day like today where organizations want to know if you are on social media and how many people you are connected with on it. The shift has been sudden and overnight. The world is awakening to bonding beyond borders and strengthening of lives by people you might never get to hug.

World Pulse was built on this vision -to unite voices. It is a decade ahead of others in this.

Let us celebrate World Pulse.
