Widening Globally: Problems and Solutions.

Truth of life reveals itself, in a very uncanny way. This moment is a re-introduction of oneself, self realization of that unidentified mysterious self which remained beneath layers of ignorance untouched. It’s a moment of liberation. I came across one such moment of truth which changed the entire route of my thoughts. With it came a permanent void, an emptiness which I live with and which will die with me. This does not mean I have stopped living, it means I have started living, rather in a different way. Thus, my life journey does not comprise of bucket list. I don’t have any personal vision except being me as I am, a woman. Here I didn’t fasten myself with the universal tag of being a human. I understand and appreciate egalitarian value, but I believe in distinctiveness of existence. Each and every being is unique and should uphold it. I want to be accepted as a woman, having all the privileges, everyone born deserves.

My reason for participating in this contest is very personal. As I have written in my week two assignment I am here to break the silence. I had stopped writing for last couple of decades. I had not written anything except few research papers in last 4-5 years and wanted to ensure if I could still write. I wanted my pen to speak again for me. Now that it has started saying baby words, I am sure with time it will become more perceptible. I found my voice back and now I can be that voice, speaking for the unheard. There are more dynamic and amazing women out here, I have been reading for last three weeks, who have done remarkable work for their community and are further planning to serve it. They have become my inspiration. I want to heartily thank World Pulse Community for providing this opportunity and the entire wonderful sisterhood for supporting and encouraging me.

My mission for my community too finds vigor from this platform. The global vision given by the connoisseur around the world, in every era to reinforce our communities to make this world more sustainable, has always been a guiding principle for me. I being part of this globe too want to have, a sustainable future for my daughters and each and every living being. There are intimidating parasitic problems, waiting to be tackled. Collective participation of each section of the society irrespective of gender, class, religion can embark upon these challenges. Increased participation of women and the excluded in social, economic and political fronts will ensure sustainability. Their exclusion or holding them back has had a regressive effect on development. The nations worldwide prominently need to figure out how they provide this opportunity to them. These issues are tabled every quarter, but remain stagnated. Execution is the keyword, the politicians need to understand. Through World Pulse forum I am sure we together can voice this demand.

Poverty is the single biggest problem faced by my community. Targeting poverty involves targeting inequality in the society. Equal opportunities to all and involving the excluded masses is must. This exclusion pushes the backward class and women to fringes. To main stream them firstly quality education is a must. Skilled human resource can eliminate poverty and generate economy. I being in an education field, I envision of building up infrastructural facilities providing sustainable skill to these classes. It is just a seed of an idea. To conceptualize it, I am talking with experts from around, as to how it can be done. Can the existing facilities be utilized or is there need to develop these facilities.

Taking the local issues globally can widen the possibilities of finding more concrete solutions and that is what I aim if I become a Voice of Future.

Hi Bhavna, I love how you

Hi Bhavna,

I love how you wrote:

"Collective participation of each section of the society irrespective of gender, class, religion can embark upon these challenges. Increased participation of women and the excluded in social, economic and political fronts will ensure sustainability. Their exclusion or holding them back has had a regressive effect on development.

And I love your vision for transforming poverty!
"Targeting poverty involves targeting inequality in the society. Equal opportunities to all and involving the excluded masses is must. This exclusion pushes the backward class and women to fringes. To main stream them firstly quality education is a must."

Thank goodness you felt the call to start writing again! I look forward to reading more from you.

Many joyful blessings,
Tina

What a great phrase that is! Your writing is chock-full of wonderful and unique phrases, I really enjoyed reading this.

I also admire the simple power of your vision - you are one woman facing a world full of big challenges, but hopefully they are easier to face knowing that there is this great community of advocates behind you - at least, I feel that way about World Pulse!

You talk about a "moment of truth which changed the entire route of my thoughts." I searched your other entries for a description of this moment and did not find it. I hope that, one day when the time is right for you, you will share it with us.

And I look forward to reading more from you,

-Kati
