    Why would anyone migrate to such living conditions?

    I first visited Mankhurd in Mumbai, a couple of years back, on a cool February morning. As I stepped into the slum, the first thing to hit me was the stink of rotting garbage. One could see garbage piles everywhere. The row of small houses tightly packed, served as the living spaces for hundreds to families. The stink became more acute as I ventured further towar...

    Unlocking Leadership in Women Recently I was in Panrutti, the seat of cashew cluster and the hot bed of jack fruit, a buzzing small town in Cuddalore district not quite far away (just 50 Kms away) from Pondicherry. Panrutti came into limelight not long ago (January’10) for bearing the brunt of Thane cyclone, caused by unprecedented cyclonic storm unable to ... Read More

    Healthy mother equates to a healthy baby

    ‘It’s normal Zeba! There is nothing to worry about!’ I was told this repeatedly in the last 4 months and I tried to believe that there was really nothing to worry about. It was four months since I had missed my periods and was hopefully looking forward to be a mother. Knowing of my pregnancy, everyone in the house was very happy. I was 20 years ... Read More

    Displaced in South Sudan at the Breaking Point

    I spent the last three days in Malakal camps. The situation of the 21,500 displaced people sheltering there has reached a very fragile stage.

When the rains start in e... Read More
