Time To #ShareTheLoad Equally

In our society girls were not given much importance, they were limited to house and household works. My grandfather was quite different he always kept daughters in laws, daughters and grand daughters a step ahead of anyone else.

Unlike most other men I have seen the men in my family always contribute towards household works.

Sense of responsibility must be inculcated in children (boy or a girl) from the very beginning.

Let’s make India HIV free: Ask IRA

HIV causes AIDS and interferes with the body’s ability to fight infections.

Did you know there are 2.01 million people still in India who live with HIV, or that there are about 80,000 people who get infected every year? Not to mention the overall stigma & prejudice associated with the condition which marginalizes the infected and the lack of information that perpetuates all of these. Bad news, indeed.

Good news, however, is that HIV is preventable, manageable and a lot of it is just to do with providing people the right information with sensitivity and tact at the right time!

Introducing IRA.
IRA is a conversational platform where people can seek answers to their pressing HIV/AIDS queries. She was created to help people gain information about HIV and motivate people to manage HIV responsibly. She is friendly and chatty and wants the world to be free of HIV.

IRA will be available on the yes4me website. Anyone with an internet connection can access IRA which makes her a powerful ally in the fight against HIV. Because of the stigma surrounding HIV, people can visit IRA from the security of their own home and seek answers to urgent questions without facing any of the discrimination that they would face anywhere else.

With IRA by their side, millions of Indians will be able to find the right information at the right time and thus solve the root cause that perpetuates HIV.

Let’s join hands to make India HIV/AIDS free. You can reach IRA for all your questions from the link below.


We would love to hear back from you as your feedback makes IRA better!

Teacher’s Day from the eyes of a Teacher.

You must be wondering its too late for a teachers day post, but I was busy with half-yearly examinations at school. Being a teacher is quite a hectic job but this didn’t stop me from sharing the wonderful experience this year teachers day celebration in our school.

As someone once said ITS BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

Teachers day is celebrated on 5th September every year on account of the birthday of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan as he is a role model for many students and teachers.

For students, this day is surely an important day. They put in their best efforts to make teachers feel special and pay respect to them.

My students also planned a great surprise for me and for all other teachers.

I received a warm welcome from my students in Class 6. The children sang and wished me, all this was followed by a nice cake which I cut. Then they did a few performances of dance and singing. I was truly speechless at the preparations done by them. I was given a beautiful gift along with roses and a few other things.

The second half of the celebration was hosted by the senior most section of the school. All the teachers were welcomed with flower shower, we were really pleased with the beautiful decorations, attractive lighting, DJ music system and other arrangements. Now another cake was brought forward and was cut by the principal and the headmistress. After the cake ceremony, all students and teachers started dancing to the tunes of DJ music system and enjoyed a lot. So the program went on with all the teachers were given gifts and food packs. We had cake and cold drinks there and everyone was so excited, enthusiastic and determined. Overall it was a great day for me and every teacher present there.

Every teacher was given beautiful presents and the celebrations ended on a happy note.

The efforts made by the students was really heartwarming, all the teachers were very happy and everyone headed towards home with a smile on face and wonderful memories in heart 🙂

  • Use Goodknight Activ+ System at home. Goodknight is the best to get rid of mosquitoes.
  • Take extra care while going out by using personal mosquito repellents like Goodknight Fabric Roll-On, Patches and Cool Gel.
