A story of child abuse and adoption trafficking

An utterly gut-wrenching and unforgettable story of an eight-year-old girl who was illegally trafficked into the US, under the pretence of adoption. A story of both courage and survival packed in one. It’s a must-read for every human being.

The author narrates a heart-wrenching story of an illegally adopted child, Jennifer, who is settled in the US but is now being deported back to India; the place where she was born. Leaving her two little daughters and her husband, she is being moved to a land unknown to her, in the new continent with nothing but a garbage plastic bag with a few pairs of clothes and no money. She still manages to survive in India with the help of her mother-in-law’s contacts. With each passing moment, she stays in an illusionary world where she believes she will be allowed back to travel back to his family. But her life has entirely a different thing planned for her.

The author, Nandita Puri through her excellent choice of words & jaw-dropping description, takes us through the life of Jennifer, which is so gripping and full of heart-aches. The book is both alarming and informative, that it was difficult for me to keep it back down before finishing the entire book. It has moved me in indescribable ways.

The best part about the book is besides being so enlightening the story is intact throughout. I insist every person to read this book at least once. It beautifully unfolds the truth about all the children who suffer gravely due to the insensitive world we live in and we mostly aren’t aware of.

Behind every successful woman is herself – Nidhi Pandya

0

Nidhi is synonymous with dedication and ambition to steer the journey of life with ethics, transparency, and next-level vision to grow together.

She started her journey at the early age of 15 when she started teaching kids and this was her internal self-motivation to take up this noble cause. A journey of an educator.

In 2014, after about 13 years, my family moved to a new place. That is when at last she could give herself some time.

She was consistently attracted online. She was quite enamoured by the digital space of Facebook and Whatsapp and how actually they contributed to the business. That is when Nidhi, decided to begin her own community to bring together people from various walks of life.

Just like any other day, the start of her journey was moderate however as individuals began thinking about us, we acquired energy and we became truly well. Tragically, because of a genuine contest, she left that group, and did not hesitate to begin a new community, said Nidhi.

Growing Buddies is a Facebook and Whatsapp community which intended to help individuals. They are a group of 15K+ individuals on Facebook, Instagram and 10+ groups on Whatsapp with new additions to the Growing Buddies families on regular basis from different parts of India.

Its a platform to showcase their talent and skills along with networking. Nidhi opened doors to everyone who wanted to grow the community. While, running this huge online n offline community, Nidhi took care to equally look after her family. That’s, when the team at Woman of Substance, says, a woman is a face of Shakti with multi-tasking.

Nidhi is a Gujarati, so to bring together all the ladies from her community she launched another local community called Glorious Gujjus. A moment of accomplishment sets in when she receives a gratitude message.

Two ladies taking education Beyond Academics – Nikita and Labdhi

0

Haven’t we all, at some point, received questions from our children, like why recycle; why not reduce and reuse? What’s the relevance of gravity? Why do the stock prices of companies go up and down? Why Mumbai and not Bombay? Why not do something good for the underprivileged kids?

And, haven’t we all told them, “please allow me to read more about it and come back to you” and then gone onto YouTube or Google and looked up answers. Parents cannot have all the answers or know about everything all the time. But can help children by enabling access to knowledge-building opportunities.

When Nikita and Labhdi, from Mumbai, realized that kids were full of questions that were out of the school syllabus, and not everyone was giving them satisfactory answers, they took the onus to help them out. They wanted to untangle every query-based knot that developed in a child and ease out their eagerness by giving them answers based on experience and logic.
Beyond Academics was born out of the necessity to help children find answers through fun learning. They saw the immense potential in offering a real-world experience to children, both inside and outside the school.
Nikita, an MBA with four years of work experience in Banking and Finance, and Labdhi, an Engineer and MBA with work experience in Marketing, gave up their lucrative, well-paying jobs to explore and expand this venture. They were so intrigued with how a child’s brain works that they wanted to make learning fun and experience-based for them.

At Beyond Academics (BA), the duo has designed modules focusing on unique outdoor events, workshops, field trips/educational trips, and summer programs for children. The main aim is to provide out-of-classroom experiences in a fun and exciting environment. Their most popular event is One with Nature, where kids and parents go on trips and treks amidst nature and wilderness. They have been conducting One with Nature for over six years and host it across India. The main idea behind this program was to help the parent and child explore and reconnect with nature through various well-curated activities like science & nature, recycling, nature crafts, storytelling, and workshops. Today, more than 2000 families from across India participate every year in this event.

Being women entrepreneurs, Nikita and Labdhi like to collaborate and empower other women entrepreneurs and educators. Maximum of their partners are women, and since they know that every woman is capable of being a step ahead in whatever she does, they took inspiration and gave Beyond Academics the tagline of ‘A Step Ahead’. It means that not only do children get to be a step ahead at BA, but women also are ahead of their league.
Nikita and Labdhi being efficient homemakers as well, often face the challenge of expanding their venture and curating newer experiences. However, they plan to grow their team and work harder to reach newer heights.

BA’s flagship program One with Nature has received raving reviews from parents, students, teachers, and schools alike. They have been recognized in the Best Kids Event category across India by online parenting portal www.kidsstoppress.com for their reputed KSP Awards for over five years in a row. Both Nikita and Labdhi say that “receiving the KSP awards gave us validation that we are on the right track. It is the only Indian award that celebrates excellence in parenting and baby care, our faith in the potential of BA got amplified and our zeal to perform better doubled.”

As we at Woman of Substance celebrate women entrepreneurs on International Women’s Day, are proud of Nikita and Labdhi for the ground-breaking work they do with Beyond Academics. Being women entrepreneurs, we are sure that nothing can stop them from taking a BA to the next level.

Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother – Anshika Srivastava

0

Just like every mother, Anshika’s journey is not different. She and her partner Ruchita had to leave their corporate fulltime career in Digital Marketing and Market Research to take care of their little ones. After a small break, they started working on their own on small digital marketing projects.

Due to the excellent quality of their work and positive feedback from their clients and referrals, they started getting a lot of work in this field. Having set their foot on a new journey they realised that there were many women entrepreneurs and startups that needed their assistance. These were low-cost digital marketing services. All this led us to think.

They first took their baby step by launching a Facebook Community “ The SHE Power Network “ which is an extension of our company SHE Digital LLP, to help create awareness of digital marketing as a work from a home career as well as a tool for women entrepreneurs to promote their business.

They started their FB group “The She Power Network” in Sept 2017. Their community consists of 8500 + women entrepreneurs, innovators and business professionals. They also have 2 support WhatsApp groups – one for helping increase organic social media reach and the other one is to promote business. Anshika and her partner started working tirelessly launching one initiative after the other. They also have a monthly e-magazine which is “by the women and for the women”. This initiative is to help women get the recognition they require because of the wonderful work they are doing in their chose fields, as well as inspire other women to start working and gain financial independence.

Slowing as the tiny tots were growing, their work also started catching up the pace. Since they were focused and dedicated to helping the woman folk, it turned out to be a great business option wherein they landed up creating platforms to build connections, learn new things and get help in the business.

In this journey of establishing themselves, they started creating awareness of digital marketing as a work from home career for women. Simultaneously, they started doing multiple online engagements.

They also encourage women to share their products and services as well as discuss the challenges they are facing or have faced in their business and most importantly ask for help when needed in any stage of their business.

While progressing ahead, just like any normal business they too faced a roadblock. Their main issue was getting the right talent to work with them in order to help them implement their ideas and keep the Facebook community lively, engaging and useful.

Something, that inspires them is a beautiful quote “One woman can make a difference, but together we can rock the world”. So come join us and let us make a difference.

In her endeavour to make a difference, she has been recognised by Social Samosa for her work in the digital marketing field last year.

A bird sitting on a  tree  is never  afraid of the branch breaking because  her trust is  not on the  branch but on its own  wings – Kaushiki Singh

So, what’s my story? Well, we all have one – looking back at myself – where I started from – the shy plump girl from a small town born into a very protective and traditional environment. With values, protection coupled with strong Dos and Don’ts for a girl, I landed up in Delhi from Lucknow (my school life was restricted to Lucknow). So, I landed up in Delhi to pursue B.A. (Hons.) Economics from Miranda House, University of Delhi – the course and the college everyone dreams of. Well, it was not easy to adapt to the environment where girls were way too smart, independent and of course, “Not Shy”. I learnt my first lesson at Miranda House that there are no dos and don’ts for a girl. It’s the same for men and women – the list depends on the person, not his gender. Miranda House laid the foundation for the woman I am today. Having completed my graduation and post-graduation, I was all set to write the coveted Civil Services. It all seemed so easy but I never knew I was about to enter a zone where you are all by yourself – books and friends being your only best friends. After struggling for a year, surviving through surgery just before my exams, I appeared for the civil services interview but then life had other plans – I finally landed up at the Reserve Bank of India. I still remember the day I was leaving for Mumbai from Delhi– I was in all tears for I always wanted to be a civil servant and then RBI – had no idea where I was going. I completely believed that I was unlucky for having not made it to the coveted civil services. Well, I guess I was wrong – fate had better plans – having completed almost 8 years at RBI, Mumbai, I have not repented even a single day to be associated with the esteemed institution. These eight years have enriched not only my knowledge but also my life experiences. I don’t know that shy conservative girl from Lucknow anymore. Kaushiki from Lucknow would never recognize this new version of Kaushiki. From being a shy, hesitant girl, I have evolved into a bold, confident woman. Contrary to the girl who was always asked to be mum with a set of defined rules and regulations, I would now not give in to any injustice or unfairness.

I am an Economist with the Reserve Bank of India currently serving as the Assistant General Manager. I have worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the past as a volunteer.

Challenges I faced, as a woman, and how did I overcome them. When I am born as a girl child in India, you are told to behave in a certain manner with their list of Dos and Don’ts that are handed over to me since birth, obviously, the list of Don’ts surpasses the Dos. Women are not expected to have their own voice, their opinions, they are wives and mothers but without any voice of their own.

During various phases of my life – be it college or be it in the profession – there were various challenges – a woman and a mother is not expected to do certain things even if they have a career of their own. One has to just believe in oneself and ignore what others say about you. This is what I did. The way others judge me is their problem, not mine. I was in a family way when I was about to get my first promotion. Given the criticality of time, I was back to the office in a very short span of time post my delivery – I travelled to Jaipur with my 40 days old son to present a research paper I had worked on. I joined the office even before my maternity leave ended so as to ensure a place for myself in the promotion list. As expected, peers and relatives had a lot of advice to offer about the Dos and Don’ts that a woman has to follow but then I didn’t pay heed to their talk – consequently just a month after joining the office, I appeared for a scholarship interview at RBI (- the scholarship is given every year by RBI to 7-8 employees to pursue higher studies abroad). So here I am with a scholarship, ready to pursue a PhD in economics abroad with my son who has just completed 18 months. And yes obviously I got my promotion based on my performance at RBI. I am not just a working woman but a mother. It gives me the strength to go on and never deterred me from achieving my goals in life. It is difficult but not impossible to balance profession and motherhood. With a lot of encouragement and help from my parents, I come a long way. I want to be strong support and an example for my son and not someone to give sympathy to. If I can overcome my adversities, am sure he will gain strength from me as well. He should grow up to be a man who respects women and their ambition. The mantra of overcoming the challenges/criticisms that one faces as a woman is to always do what you feel is right for you and not giving in to familial or societal pressures.

Societal pressure on women expecting them to behave in a particular manner tends to make them leave their careers midway. So I say, do what makes you happy because only then you can make people around you happy. Your own identity is as important as your family and kids. Just because you are born as a girl child doesn’t mean you have to suffer every time. The family should be a support system to help you achieve your goals/dreams, not an obstacle.

I don’t have anyone particular person as a role model. I draw inspiration from every single woman who has fought odds to be where she is irrespective of the fact whether she is a housewife or a professional. Any woman who has stood up for herself is a role model/inspiration for me.

What inspires me and gives me immense energy in times of stress,is “Use your pain as fuel and keep going. Great things never came from comfort zones.”

You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty. – Bhagavad Gita, Chapter II, Verse 47

On this beautiful verse of Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta, I got introduced to wonderful  – Dr Sukanya Iyer. After a long time, I have come across someone who’s so willing to help people. Talking to her during the sundown a few days ago,I gathered so many sides of this very determined, passionate, warm loving and extremely well-educated ladies.

I was spellbound to gather facts about her educational qualifications, among her various educational laurels were her  PhD in International Economics from Washington DC in 2000. She was a teacher and dabbling in multiple subjects, teaching management, economics, personality development, mentoring underprivileged entrepreneurs, doing pro-bono work for NGOs. This wouldn’t have been possible without a seasoned childhood.

Talking about childhood, Dr Iyer recalls fondly says that her mother was her first teacher and mentor making a mention of having being grown up in an urban middle-class Brahmin home. Warmly remembers her mum being a strict disciplinarian. Early to bed early to rise. She spoke with immense high regards towards her parents, and the values that are instilled in her. Her father was mostly away as he was a civil engineer, created some very iconic landmarks for our country one among them being Lakshman jhula. She spent most of her formative years while growing up with her mother. She recalls many moments fondly. An extremely humble person at heart, she says she’s a drop in the ocean.

She is extremely qualified and well versed in Sanskrit, as most of the verses are at the fingertips of her’s. She gathers strength from the words and teachings of Great Swami Vivekananda. She says life is all about experiential learning. Travelled in the early years, she warmly recalls how each and every incident and destination has carved a niche in her life. How they have beautifully given her a new perspective. This created her love for the blog.

As time went by and the sky was beginning to get dark, with a warm breeze the discussion just got a little interesting. Having being comfortable with each other’s virtual company, we set out to speak about a lot of things. Something that connected me as a healer and she was as an empowered soul, was the fact that we believed in “seva bhav”.For the last 18 years, she’s been associated with the CII for mentoring underprivileged children and associated with the Bharti Yuva Seva.  She very strongly professes to the young generation, that the essence of education is very important, it eliminates darkness. Stressing on childhood, she pauses to express our kids are drawn towards a toxic atmosphere. Instead, they must invest in themselves – read and learn a lot, reworking and realigning themselves. ” Action Speaks Louder than Words”.

Today she’s able to achieve so much in life and keep a low profile today, as she strongly believes in working hard. Her father instilled many values in her which forms her foundation. Having lost her father to cancer last year, she misses him. Something she learnt as she was growing up, to spend quality time in the lap of nature she used it in her moments of stillness. She strongly feels her dad overlooks her as her guardian angel.

As we were nearing the closure of our discussion, I asked Dr Iyer her one word ..

She beautifully says,” Nari tu Narayani”
She says that is me in various avatars and super seeding in each. A true woman is a Durga a shakti in her true form.
