Menstruation Counts

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA During my days in school, I had a huge affinity for science, especially biology but could not completely comprehend the concept of the ‘menstrual cycle’.

Yes we can!

support India loses lakhs of children to diarrhea, abortion, miscarriages and other diseases. Sanitation facilities or the lack of it, account for the maximum number of deaths in our country. With our Prime Minister announcing a ‘cleanliness Drive’ through “Swacch Bharat Abhiyan”, the focus has shifted to ‘cleanliness’ in a big way for the first time. I strongly feel this is the first genuine effort by the Government of India to address th…

Asma – Tailoring Her Future

Asma - Tailoring Her Future Inspiring case stories are always looked upon with proud and satisfaction and something I always cherish to share. I would like to share one such heart touching story of Asma, a woman who conquered over personal battles and turned around her life with determination.
