Self Defense for Women

I recently saw the post that the NGO called Justice for Women was hosting a self defense workshop for Women across the country. As a friend to the organizer i decided to help out in any ways i could. I was asked to host the workshop on behalf of Justice for Women in Bangalore today along with Nabeel. The workshop was conducted by Franklin Joseph, who is a women safety empowerment specialist and Krav Maga trainer. Below are a few insights about the workshop.

So my brother asked me to write a blog about Deepavali. As in how it is different in Bangalore and back home. So here i go :)
In my last 6yrs away from home, this is the first time i am celebrating Deepavali in Bangalore. Celebrating Deepavali in a village is a lot different then celebrating it here in a city. Below is just a comparison from my point of view.

Kannada Rajyotsava!!

 Recently I got an opportunity to be a part of the Kannada Rajyotsava celebrations in Office. It was the first time a Kannada event was being organized at my work place. To be really frank, I have not been a great fan of Kannada. My mother tongue is Konkani and I have studied in an English medium school. But the motive behind this event was what drove me to volunteer. It was not going to be one of those local street celebrations where people told our language is better then yours.

Dreams are the best thing that probably happens to us. Not the dreams as in something that we want, but as something that comes when we are asleep. Those spontaneous random sequence of events, which has absolutely no relation to each other. People say its the subconscious mind playing games. Some of them turn out to be nightmares and few other brings a smile on your face. He has gone through a lot lately and he has had his shares of both.
