MEMORY


It makes me smile, it makes me cry.
The memory of how you loved me would never die.
I was here, but I was there.
With you in my heart, I never knew how far apart we were.
Mornings were charming, nights beautiful
Talking to you I knew you made my life meaningful
I am happy, yet I am sad.
You talk to me no more, yet I hear your voice, so more, so close than I ever had.
Come to me like the warmth of the summer Sun,
Stay close to me like the chilled breathe of the winter wind.
I yearn for the days of past
when I meant the world to you
and you meant life to me
Take me out of this grief,
Had I have, enough of the sobbing
Teach me once again
To live, to smile, to keep life moving.

VOID


A woman of grace, courage, and wisdom
Of beauty, brilliance, and wit
She was a dreamer, young, and passionate
Of things, she could do with great skill.

A woman of attitude, elegance, and strength
Of confidence, dignity, and kindness
She was a fighter, fervent, and optimistic
Of things, she loved doing.

A woman stuck in the clutches of discrimination
Of gender, judgment, and patriarchy
She was a woman, muted, and restrained
Of things, she could achieve in life.

A woman cold, morose, and dejected
Of society, rejection, and impediment
She was a corpse, dead, and hopeless
Of things, that meant life to her.

Void.

For the woman she is !!

Like the rising Sun, she gleamed,

Baring the elegance of her knowledge and wit

Like the flowing river she moved,

Braving the every challenge of life

Like the mountains, she stood strong,

Clenching the courage in the core of her heart

Like the silent wind, she chuckled,

Facing the world with valor and charm

Hail the glorious morale of the woman,

as she blossoms by leaps and bounds.

Bringing peace and glory to the nation,

She reaches the stars bringing elation.

International Women's Day

It’s the International Women’s day today, and on this occasion, I would like to wish you all a Happy Women’s Day. :)



While the internet world is battling over what “Feminism” actually meant, there are still women in this world who face discrimination everywhere and there are also women who are growing with the sky as their limit. The past few years have seen great efforts being put towards women empowerment. Empowering women to get a better education, better opportunities, a better place in the society and many other such things which would make women stand at a better position than they were at for all these years. These efforts have for sure changed a lot of things for women but have changed certain things for men as well. There is always a debate about letting women dominate in every field. This is merely a misconception of what the entire idea of women empowerment is. It is all about being given the freedom to express their ideas and interests, the freedom to choose the job of their interest, the freedom to carve the career of their aspirations, the freedom to grow in their field, the freedom to oppose oppression, and freedom for everything she wants to do in her life.

Being a woman, and celebrating Women’s day, today I can, with all courage and confidence, say that I don’t need someone to push me or help me attain success in life. I don’t need a special status or set of rules framed to let me access my rights. I don’t have to snatch away the opportunity from others to make my own place in this world. I am educated, confident and capable of learning, earning, and succeeding in all phases of my life. All I want from the society is a bit of encouragement, good wishes, and appreciation for my abilities and work. This is what every woman yearns for.

Today, let’s not debate on who is right and who is wrong. Let’s not try to judge the girl over her dress. Let’s not comment on a girl over her profession. Let’s not criticize a girl over her choice of relationships.

If there is something to celebrate, it is the spirit of womanhood. The love a mother showers on her children, the care a wife shows for her family, the concern a sister has for her siblings, the affection a daughter has for her parents. The strength of a woman who manages her work and family with perfection, the confidence of a woman who leads her company towards success, the dignity of a woman who rules her country with great patriotism, the beauty of a woman who lures her audience with her graceful performance. Appreciate her for what she is and for what is does, this is all she expects from the world.

Feminists around the world are not looking for someone to come up and beat the drum for them to gain attention. Feminism is not about proving themselves to be superior to others but to prove that they do exist and they exist as they make others in their lives proud of their existence.

Celebrating the National Science Day



Science is a subject that fascinates every one of us. It is because of science and the development and the advancement of science driven by technology that today we have a solution for every challenging question the world faces. From the discovery of electricity to the invention of the X-ray machine, from calculating the speed of light to formulating the laws of motion, humans have, in every aspect of their lives, challenged the nature and cracked some inexplicable logics behind every property of nature.

In India, science and discovery of great things traces back to the ancient history when shasthras were written by great people like Aryabhatta who gave the number ‘0’, Sushruta, the first man to perform a surgery, Charaka, the “Father of Medicine” and many others who contributed great scientific inventions to this world.

The prehistoric period, the Indus Civilization marked the beginning of the development of science and technology at a noticeable level. Beginning from then, India and also the whole world have put great effort in the quest for answers for everything that surrounded us and that defined life on earth.
Among the great scientists of modern India, Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman was one personality whose contribution in the field of science has fetched great name and fame to the country along with the prestigious Nobel Prize in the year 1930.  His discovery of the “Raman Effect” that explains the scattering of light has given scope for great development in the study of molecular science and spectroscopy.

Marking the discovery of the “Raman Effect”, National Science Day is celebrated every year in India on the 28th of February. Celebrated as one of the main science festivals in India, National Science Day, brings together scientists, students and people from all educational backgrounds, to revere the exceptional work being done in the field of Science and Technology. Be it defense science, medical science, or the science in farming, the developments taking place in every sector mark the progression of our country in this field.

Every year, the National Science Day is celebrated by choosing a specific theme. The theme for the year 2016 was “Scientific Issues for Development of the Nation”. This year, the theme for celebrating the Science Day is “Science and Technology for Specially Abled Persons”. To take the nation forward in the direction of progress, it is important to ensure that every citizen is given equal opportunity to grow in the society. The kind of amenities and opportunities that a normal person gets in this country, is also the right of every other citizen, even if he/she is specially abled. With an aim to ensure that specially abled persons are given the opportunity to overcome their disability and make their lives better, we need to work on discovering and developing things with the research in Science and Technology that would benefit the Specially Abled people not only in our country but also around the globe.

There is no end to learning and invention in the ocean of science, every single milestone delivers invaluable contribution for the survival and development of mankind.

International Mother Language Day - 21st February

అప్పుడే పుట్టిన పసిబిడ్డ ఏడుపు ఏ భాష పలుకుతుంది? ఇప్పుడిప్పుడే మాటలు నేర్చిన చిన్నారి ఏ భాషను గ్రహిస్తుంది? ప్రతి మనిషి పుట్టేక పలికె మొదటి పలుకు తన తల్లిని పిలవడానికి తన మాతృభాషలో "అమ్మా" అని అనడం. అది ఏ భాష అయినా సరే దాని వెనుక భావం మాత్రం ఒక్కటే. 
నేడు ప్రపంచమంతా ఎక్కువగ వాడే భాష ఆంగ్లము. చదువు, ఉద్యోగం, వ్యాపారం, తదితర రంగాలు నేడు ఆంగ్లభాషకే ప్రాముఖ్యతను ఇస్తున్నాయి. దానికి కారణం, నేడు మనం చూస్తున్న ప్రపంచీకరణ. ప్రతి రంగంలోనూ జాతీయ అంతర్జాతీయ స్థాయిలో అందరూ సమానంగా పోటీ పడుతున్న ఈ కాలంలో, ప్రతి ఒక్కరు అందరికి అర్ధమయ్యే భాషలో సంభాషిచగలడం అనివార్యం అయ్యింది. ఏ భాషలో మాట్లాడినా భావవ్యక్తీకరణ వద్దకు వచ్చేసరికి మన మాతృభాషలో మన భావాలను వ్యక్తం చేసిన విధంగా మారే భాషలోనూ చేయలేము. ఆనందం వచ్చినా, దుక్ఖం వచ్చినా, నొప్పీలో ఉన్నా, మన మనసులో భావాలను మన మాతృభాషలోనే వ్యక్తం చేసుకుంటాం ఎందుకంటే, ఉగ్గుపాలతో కలిపి మన తల్లి మనకు పట్టిన ఆ భాష మన నరనరాలలో ప్రవహిస్తుంది, మన గుండెకు అతి చేరువగా ఉంటుంది కనుక.

ప్రపంచం అతి వేగంగా ముందుకు నడుస్తోంది. ప్రతీ రంగంలోనూ దేశాలు తమ ప్రతిభను చాటుకోవడానికి ఎంతో శ్రమపడుతున్నాయి. ఈ ప్రక్రియలో వారు తమ జాతీయ, మాతృభాషలపై  దృష్టిసారించటం లేదు. కొన్ని దేశాలలో ప్రజలు తమ కార్యాలయాలలో గాని పాఠశాలలో గాని వారి మాతృభాషలో సంభాషించుకోవటం నిషేదించబడుతున్నాయి. ఇలాంటి పరిస్థితి ఏర్పడటం వలన ప్రపంచమంతటా వివిధ భాషాపరిగ్యానముపై శ్రద్ధపెట్టాల్సిన అవసరం కలిగింది. ఈ అంశంపై చర్చించి ఒక పరిష్కారం తేవాలన్న ఉద్దేశంతో మరియు, ప్రపంచవ్యాప్తంగా ఎన్నో రాజ్యాలలో మరుగున పడుతున్న భాషల పునరోధారణకొఱకై 1999లో యునెస్కో "అంతర్జాతీయ మాతృభాషా దినోత్సవం" జరుపుకువోలన్న ప్రతిపాదనను తెలిపింది. ఈ ప్రతిపాదనకు ఆమోదం తెలుపుతూ,  2008లో యునైటెడ్ నేషన్స్ జనరల్ అసెంబ్లీ, ప్రతీ సంవత్సరం ఫిబ్రవరి 21న "అంతర్జాతీయ మాతృభాషా దినోత్సవం" జరపాలని ప్రకటించింది. 

ప్రపంచంలో ఎన్ని భాషలు ఉన్నా, మనం ఏ భాషలో మాట్లాడుకున్న, చదువుకున్న, మన మాతృభాషకు ఇవ్వాల్సిన ప్రాముఖ్యత, గౌరవం, ఇవ్వాల్సినదే. అది మన ధర్మం, మన సంస్కారం మరియు భాద్యత. తెలుగువారమైన మనం, ప్రపంచంలో ఏ మూలలో ఉన్న, ఏ విదేశంలో జీవిస్తున్న, మన మాతృభాషైన తెలుగు భాషను ఎన్నడూ మరచిపోకూడదు, మరుగుపడనివ్వకూదదు. మన పిల్లలకు, మనుమలకు, మన భాష గొప్పదనాన్ని, మరియు ప్రాముఖ్యతను తెలిపి, మన భాష అంతరించిపోకుండా, వారిచేత ముందుకు తీసుకువెళ్లాలి. 

"ఏ దేశమేగినా ఎందు కాలిడినా , ఏ పీఠమెక్కినా ఎవ్వరేమనిన పొగడరా నీ తల్లి భూమి భారతిని , నిలుపరా నీ జాతి నిండు గౌరవము"  అని రాయప్రోలు సుబ్బారావు గారు పలికిన ఆణిముత్యాలను గ్యప్తికి తెచ్చుకొంటూ మన తెలుగుదేశ భాషను, సంస్కృతి సాంప్రదాయాలను నిలబెడుతూ అందరూ అభివృద్ధి చెందాలని ఆశిద్దాం.

World Day of Social Justice

We live in a world where our society carves the way we live our lives. History has seen and held with it the many archetypes of society where religion, class, economic status etc served as barriers in the development and progression of countries and their citizens. The evolvement of a society where people are valued for their skill, intelligence and for the fact of being a human has become a dream that is far from turning into reality.

The past decade has seen various reforms and regulations drafted in favor of, and with an aim to promote social equality, harmony, and justice in the world. A socially just world is what is looked forward to. While countries are imposing bans on the entry of people from other countries into their own countries, the fundamental right of a human to live in world free of barriers on the name of religion, culture, ethnicity or disability is being choked to death.



There is a pressing need for realizing and recognizing the importance of bringing up laws to tackle issues of social concern like social and economic exclusion, poverty and unemployment. Acting to the desideratum, the United Nations General Assembly has decided to observe 20th February as the World Day of Social Justice. Approved on 26th November 2007 and starting in 2009, this day is celebrated to promote efforts to tackle social issues and work for social justice and equality. With a common notion to work indefatigably towards fostering “a society for all”, governments have resolved to create a framework for action to advocate social justice at regional, national and international levels. They have also pledged to ensure equal access to resources and opportunities for all. To let the humanity and fundamental rights of every citizen survive the impediment of the various social barriers, the governments have committed to promoting gender equality and rights of both native and migrant people.



The United Nations has made the objective to bring social justice for all as its core purpose of its global mission to promote human dignity and development. The purpose of observing the day is to bring about a wind of change in the present scenario where equality and equity are obliterated. The United Nations General Assembly has invited the Member States to devote the World day of Social Justice to encourage national activities in accordance with the goals and objectives of the World Summit for Social Development and the twenty-fourth session of the General Assembly. The objective behind the initiative is to eradicate poverty, promote full employment, gender equity, economic and social equality, and justice for all.
