dreamz...

i met this lady ranjani saigal at PAN IIT in decmber..she was an IITB alumni, civil engg batch 1981..i heard her giv a talk in one of the series of lectures and den decided to interview her..just remembered the talk so writin dwn something interesting she said..
  • it is surprising that in todays world the sitauation of women is as such..in villlages and even loads of families in urban areas, they are still looked down upon as those who can only handle the house..surprising that men donot trust women's capabilities inspite of the fact that when God was distributing portfolios he gave the most important ones to women..namely lakshmi, finance..saraswati, education...shakti, defence..
  • this lady is someone who went on to perfom a show in which she depicted DNA structure through bharatnatyam..an unheard of culmination of tech and cult..it seems the person who sponsored the show said"i dnt understand your concept but since you're an IITian i am sure whatever you do, you'll make it a success..so im givin u d money"
talkin to her made me feel that we have such a huge platform which is IIT to do whatever we want in life..its a waste not to use it to follow our passions..as for me..my passion is writing...and im tryin my best to work on my writing these days..i started writing for insight, write in my job and have now proposed the starting of a department newsletter too..
sumday maybe u all wil read a book by me[:d]..hehehe..

came across your blog...
you have excellent views.U see while starting off most women who want to create an awareness about women liberation & highlight their status a as a member of the main stream,lose their focus somewhere along the way and somehow turn into whiny politicians with only motive=social stunts+money.i sincerely hope you remain safe of that
