An Eye Opening Experience: From Being Visually Impaired to Becoming Empowered

By: |

There are experiences you derive pleasure from and there are experiences you are bound to treasure for the rest of your life. The visit to the National Association for the Blind (NAB) facility in Hauz Khas as a part of the ‘Swayam’ community service volunteering program as a part of Coca-Cola Founding Day celebrations was one such unforgettable experience for me. This residential center in Hauz Khas imparts vocational training to visually impaired

Friends I Spoke to at the Beautiful Valley of Flowers

By: |

As you go up the hills of Uttarakhand, finding a few friends is hardly an easy task. The population is sparse and the small houses few and far between. Villages and hamlets are found at regular distance but they have found a home in sync with nature. There is abundance of green around. The dominant grey and white, partly due to the mist and clouds, sometimes makes you feel lonely. That is precisely where my friendship with nature began. Now that

Building Village Level Eco-Entrepreneurs for Social Change

Water, water everywhere. But lesser of it to drink! The Himalayas are known as the water basin of Asia, generating up to 42 percent of water in the region. The irony is the average hill family is unable to harness more than 2 per cent of this water! This statistic is a reality for mountain communities. Out of 16,000 villages in Uttarakhand, more than half have been declared water scarce. Districts like Almora, Pithoragarh and Chamoli are facing serious

FIFA U-17 World Cup: A Tipping Point for Indian Football

By: |

A press conference marking the end of the FIFA U-17 World Cup India 2017 group stage happened for gathered media on Sunday in Kolkata’s host stadium, and the mood was buoyant but one of a good job, half-way done. Javier Ceppi, Director of the India 2017 LOC, called attendances at the event so far “fantastic and astonishing,” and Project Director of the India 2017 LOC Joy Bhattacharjya said “this has been a tipping point for Indian football, and purely

FIFA Trophy that Inspires Moms & Kids Alike!

By: |

There a few things I do every morning, right after I drop the kids for school and before my husband gets up. It’s a narrow window so I only concentrate on the very important. I make a cup of green tea, skim through the headlines and find out what’s happening on GurgaonMoms. Yes it is that important and you’ll soon understand why. As I go through all the posts on my favorite mommy group, I notice a post specifically for soccer moms mentioning a contest-

When was the Last Time You Did Something for the First Time?

By: |

An airlines advertisement that exhorts you to think- “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” has stuck with me for over 15 years now. In fact, I have sought some ‘first time’ experiences and some of these experiences have been thrust on me. Bareback diving in Polar Sea in Antarctica, traveling on a train to Pakistan and driving 1000 miles in a day to the Mexico border are some. I never imagined that something so precious, so

When the FMC Soccer Moms Got to Witness the FIFA U-17 World Cup Trophy

By: |

I am a soccer mom. Well, not in the ‘American suburban mom’ kind of way, but more in the ‘my older brat eats, breathes and sleeps soccer’ kind of way as he has been playing on his school team for the last 7 years. That basically means waking up every morning at an ungodly hour to pack him snacks and see him off for his football coaching. I am not very regular with going for his matches because that is daddy-duty; you see the daddy dearest is the

तालाब की खुदाई के बाद राजस्थान के गांव की तस्वीर कैसे बदल गयी

By: |

राजस्थान के चकसु खंड, जिला जयपुर के राडोली गांव में मेरा कुआं तालाब के पास में ही है. कुएं की गहराई करीब 90 फ़ीट है. जब उसका निर्माण करवाया था तो ये सोचा था कि कुएं के रहने से पानी की मात्रा अच्छी हो जायेगी. लेकिन जितना पानी उम्मीद की थी, खुदाई के बाद उतना मिला नहीं. हमारे परिवार के सभी लोग खेती का काम करते हैं. इसलिए पानी की ज़रुरत को हम बहुत अच्छी तरह से समझते हैं. गांव के लगभग सभी परिवार हमारे जैसे ही हैं. हम सब गांव वासियों ने मिलकर संस्था के कार्यकर्ताओं

How the Science of PET Recycling Works with Artwork Precision

By: |

The Indian cricket team uniforms made by Nike and the blankets distributed on Emirates airlines for passengers may not quite have anything in common. But a common thread binds them together. Quite literally! The uniforms and blankets are both made with recycled PET bottles. But the common thread between the two, and the simplicity, ends just there. That is just one way to show how recycled PET is used in one of the ways after it has completed the
