Community Immersion : Extended Family!

When she mentioned that I shouldn’t leave her house because she feels lonely without me, I felt my purpose was served. 

She is Kunti Ma’am, an Aanganwadi Teacher in Vadyuda village of Bageshwar District. I’m living in her shelter from the past 10 days for a community immersion project and 10 more days to go. She has taken care of me like my mother but also been a supportive and funny friend. 

She is again an inspiration to me because she has been living alone for a longer while now that her family has shifted to the city to work and earn. She has encouraged them all and herself as well to lead her motive for people’s welfare. 

She call’s me Nikita and keeps asking me if I’m hungry even after I have eaten.

Ofcourse there is a discomfort to live at someone’s place without paying them anything. 

But when they love you like their own and support you for your vision you know that you have increased your family. Right?

Bura Na Maano, Holi Hai. 

We don’t wish to be singled out as a spoilsport right? Howsoever offensive or virtually assaunting someone’s behaviour might be. 
Zabardasti ko masti ka naam matt dijiye!
The reasons why several women don’t wish to play holi is either they have faced the abuse or they fear the same. How often do we put the energy in creating a fear free environment for a women on this occasion? We are more inclined toward forcing her to participate. I hope we have a Happy Holi and make it happy for the people in our circle.
