A journey to Pulse discovery!

I mostly spend my days working in a cooperative where everything is related with providing financial service to the society. It believes in offering a chance to save good people’s savings and provide loan to those who can’t. When I finished my college with a degree, my goal was never set to a specific one. One time I thought of continuing my masters in rural development but eventually my mind was diverted by personal matters. Now I am just limiting myself with masters in business studies. My concept of serving people is just different from what I work. When my friend introduced me to pulse wire and the concept of blogging into it, I didn’t have any story to tell. I thought what I could do to make others hear what I have to say. I didn’t know anybody who could personally share their story of struggle or compassion or hardship to me. But in the back of my mind, I knew there are hundreds of people who wanted to be heard. They were not seen but still they are somewhere waiting to come out. Surprisingly, my dear friend who discovered world pulse for me asked me to join in and search for a story that would inspire people. I completely thought it was possible and exciting. But unfortunately our plan was cut short because of her private matters. Then I was left to prepare a story by myself that would create some discussion if not a good one. Then I decided to search for a right kind of story. After some days, I was immensely blessed to find one. It was story of a girl, younger than me but looks a lot matured. She was the sweetest girl but her ups and down in life was so sad to hear that I was left to think I could never live her life if I was her. I asked her if I could write about her and I told her about world pulse but she was uncomfortable to be revealed as a girl who went through so much pain. So I promised her I would fake her name but everything will remain real. I promised her life story would inspire everyone. She told me everything that I asked. She revealed her private issues like she was my closest friend. I went home with much anticipation and finished my story in 2 days. I knew that with one try, I would not go anywhere so I decided to have critics who could assist me. So I asked help from my dear colleagues at my workplace. Most of them thought it was a good one however some had problems telling me that some parts of the story was like nosing around somebody’s life. I thought why they couldn’t see a positive aspect of my effort and not focus on a secret family affair in the story. But sadly I was compelled to delete those parts, which could have made the story more inspiring. I printed my final effort and it is safely in my bookshelf at my home and also in world pulse with the story by the name ‘Archana’. This is how my journey started with pulse wire and I pray that I would be successful in near future in bringing out inspiring stories and tell it to the world.

what a courageous you

That was good thing and quite inspiring, in the mix of having nothing to say, but for the spirit of inspiring others you went this far. Keep the flag flying. Next time you see a woman walking half naked, dont pass out for a mad woman, bring her close to you, give her a shoulder to lean on, you sooner discovered that, she was not actually a mad woman, but assigned madness by a "he" they are every where even in you neighbourwood. Mark you the masion adjacent to your house, with all the riches, lays, an abused, and subjugated woman, mark you "the rich also cry" Speak for them, dont shy away, believe in yourself, give them a shoulder, encourage them, the next time you know they will be speaking for themselves. Thats it.

Pass the voice on, generation over generation, until we reach the promise land of gender equality and freedom.
Woman most leave again.

Please keep writting. Its even more inspiring when you are a voice for someone else...I believe thats the spirit of womanhood-sharing and being there for others-empathy! All for a good cause.
