'Street Children Face Constant Physical, Mental, Sexual Abuse': Dia Mirza Speaks Out

12 Apr 2017 | 0 Comment |

The little children in street situations now have a reason to rejoice, so do citizens who despite their good intentions feel unsure about collaborating with the government.

To me, they are like the little flowers by the roads who survive despite our collective indifference. But a few days ago, I was invited to Delhi to become a part of a partnership between the

Entering a pediatric ICU with little babies and children connected to machines beeping and a sense of anxiety weighing heavy in the air, I steeled myself against what was waiting for me inside. I was there to meet Umme, an angelic six-year-old from Patna, who had just had open-heart surgery. If there’s ever a heart-wrenching vision, it is that of a child in distress. And yet, if there’s ever an inspiring vision, it is that of a distressed child putting up a brave face. Umme is resilience personi

We Should Cherish The Noble Ideals That Inspired Our National Struggle For Freedom

12 Aug 2015 | 0 Comment |

"I learned from my illiterate but wise mother that all rights to be deserved and preserved come from duty well done. Thus the very right to live accrues to us when we do the duty of citizenship to the world. From this one fundamental statement, perhaps it is easy enough to define duties of man and woman and correlate every right to some corresponding duty to be first performed..." – Mahatma Gandhi

I always wondered why most things are associated with the number seven? For instance, the seven colours of the rainbow; the seven notes that make a melody; the seven 'pheras' of a hindu wedding; the seven days in a week Seven now is associated with seven bomb blasts in the seventh month of this year.

I don’t believe in the equality of sexes. The reason is obvious too… Women are far superior, is more than obvious, whether men admit to it or not. Be it emotionally or even physically… Yes I say physically, because I can bet that no man can bear the pain of labour as much as women can… No matter what, they just can’t beat women when it comes to tolerance…
