On a Slate. ~ My story on Nirasha

Hope. That’s what we girls are. We are the li’l angels of hope and harbingers of happiness and prosperity. And that’s why many of us are named Asha. I know families who celebrate the homecoming of their ‘bundle of joy’ and I have come across such families too who sink themselves in the river of despair.

Dear Readers,

Would you mind if I ask you:

  1.  What’s your definition of girl/daughter?
  2.  Someday, don’t you want to have your own daughter?
  3.  Her Name and its meaning.

What kind of parents they must be who named their daughter Nirasha? The father denied her as his child and the mother cursed her womb! Believe me her name was Nirasha. I met her while I was in Dubai. She was the caretaker of my friend’s aunt’s ailing daughter. Contrary to her name she was a livewire. She said it wasn’t easy for her to come in terms with life. Sometimes your tears refuse to roll down because you can’t show your pain to the blazing gaze of a hard-hearted society.

In every corner of the world girls are abused, disrespected, raped and killed. Is she really so insignificant?

Accept it or not but girls are the most beautiful creation of God. His miracle of superior eminence. If nothing more, She is what you called LifeIs there anything more dearer than one's life?

♥ Words on a slate are never permanent. Lets rub off the traces of such a society where women are still ill-treated.

  1. What’s your definition of girl/daughter?

    A daughter is a source of all joys in the world, she is caring, she loves,she makes you feel like the most important person in the world!

    Someday, don’t you want to have your own daughter?
    If someday im blessed id wish it to be her... :)

    Her Name and its meaning.
    Id name her Ankhi... eyes... because i ll live again through her eyes...she will be my eyes to see the world in a whole new way


    i happen to be in love with you... :) just wanted you to know!!

  2. What’s your definition of girl/daughter?

    A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future. :)

    Someday, don’t you want to have your own daughter?
    Absolutely :)

    Name? Am still not sure... but i cannot even begin to imagine parents who would name their daughter 'Nirasha'. I hav a lump in my throat just looking at the photograph..

  3. People have to realize with women or girl we are no more and a girls related with us in many ways as mother, daughter, sister, cousin and friends… we are always depend on either. We can’t deny anything as women’s issue or abuse as we have them beside every moment.

    Well captured the girl’s visage and very sorry for Nirasha. I love the name Hasini after watching the Tamil movie Santhosh Subramiyan and the character played bu genelia d'souza. so fun going child or daughter.

  4. It is very sad and deplorable how many parents, especially well-to-do parents in India, discriminate between their sons and daughters. I can't understand why...but it is a truth in today's India, where money speaks volumes and the gap between the rich and the poor is increasingly widening by the day.
