The past weekend was kind of a let’s-celebrate-womanhood for me. Today, many people understand feminism as feminazi and I would like to make it clear here that I am all for the former only. Let’s make it clearer with their definitions –

Feminism (noun): the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. (Source)

Feminazi (noun): a term used pejoratively to describe either feminist who are perceived as extreme or radical, women who are perceived as seeking superiority over men, rather than equality(Source)

Participating in this challenge has made me more aware and witness the kind gestures my fellow human beings show all around me. And at the end of the day, I realise that kindness is, after all, a choice that we make & a matter of the heart; whether we want to be kind or not reflects the person we are.  Sadly, even when kindness is free, within our control and makes us feel great too, but even then some of us cannot be kind enough. :/ (more…)

Sprinkling some kindness!

Being kind, for me, is being kind in words, thoughts and deeds. I feel that it is like sharing something which I have to give away and which the other person delightfully accepts…and every time, I do it with a smile on my face and gratitude in my heart for the opportunity. ❤ (more…)

I did a post about it here.Very recently I went one step ahead from the last time, while taking a break at my workplace.

I love older things that people have used and cherished. They have personality, character, and soul ~ Anonymous

Tucked away in the hills of Sonapur (about 17 kms from Guwahati City) is a treasure trove of all things old & vintage. Under the tireless efforts of Mr Pickloo Deka over the years, flourishes his dream and hobby of collecting rare gems that occupy pages of history. Called the TREASURED WHEELS, it is his endeavour to collect and offer a peek to the glorious yesteryears to all the interested people of today & tomorrow. He says that he wants to leave behind glimpses of our rich history for the future generation, under one roof. (more…)
