A lovely morning to all the lovely readers of STHREEJEEVAN who are going to prove their mettle to the entire world. You are going to let them know that there’s no dearth of opportunities for you which will help you create your own identity.
So, how did your day start – social media overflowing with Good day wishes? You smiled reading their messages, but some vacuum still persists in your heart for the people really close to you never bothered to wish you. Don’t feel disheartened. Just ignore their actions and move forward to explore and embrace a better world that’s awaiting you. Emotional attachments do have a great role to play in the lives of women but that mustn’t act as a barrier in our growth. We have to believe in our potential and strengths if we want our lives to be better. Most of us are well qualified and learned, then why must we plunge in a doom? It’s high time we get out of our thresholds and reach out to those women who lack awareness or are really weak physically and emotionally.
A month back or so many women and children have lost the head of their family. Most of them are from the rural backgrounds whose life faced a total collapse because of the demise of their spouses. Financial support also would have ended. They might be given remuneration by the government but that too after lengthy official procedures. Till then what’s the state of their lives? There would have occurred cases of school drop outs.
Isn’t this the time when we can put our knowledge, experience and wisdom to use to uplift someone who really needs it? Collect information that’s genuine about these families and see how you can support them from your place. It’s not possible for you to directly reach them but it’s not impossible to help. Contact your friends, form a small group and see how you can render your services. My request to you again on this day to you is don’t give importance to people who treat you as an option. Work in such a way that you are their topmost priority.
Also, elections are round the corner. Voting is not just your right but also a national duty. Do cast your vote fulfill this duty. Encourage others in your neighbourhood, family and friends, colleagues and everyone you know to cast their vote and exercise your power.

HAVE A GREAT DAY AHEAD
