Let’s be kind…

During our growing up years, at home as well as part of the Moral Science classes in school, we all are taught to be kind among many other virtues. We are told to be kind, in thoughts & words, to our fellow human beings, the animals around us as well as the plants & trees. However, as we grow up, the significance of these lessons seems to grow lesser & lesser. Life gets busy and in a bid to be a part of the mad rat race we all are a part of (voluntarily or involuntarily), we seem to lose them. Most of the times, we expect these virtues from others but somehow ignore or forget to practise them ourselves. (more…)

I am quite behind the actual schedule in posting under the KINDNESS CHALLENGE (2016) but I am committed to complete it for sure, come what may! πŸ˜› Following the required things under the challenge is being done by me without fail, however, I am not being able to post them, for reasons I don’t want to bore you, my readers, with.

I AM MALALA – my thoughts

IMG_1950Goodreads Page

Author: Malala Yousafzai, Christina Lamb

Blurb:

I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.
Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate.
I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world.

My thoughts:

Participating in the 2016 Monthly Motif Reading Challenge has been so far a good experience and has done me good by making me pick up books from my huge stack of tempted-to-bring-home-but-not-yet-read books. For the month of May I had to select a book under the motif β€œStory of Survival” and while going through my earlier mentioned stack, the picture of Malala Yousafzai staring at me from the cover made my job easy. So, for the month of May, MALALA it was! (more…)
