I often get the feeling that, as a society, we’re moving so fast that not only our cultural norms but also our laws are unable to keep up. Take cyber safety, for instance. Today, several schools offer cyber security workshops, ensuring that teenagers at least know about the dangers of sharing information ...

I am Shalini Chauhan, a warrior!

In a backward, patriarchal Uttar Pradesh village, a young girl is making a difference, reports Geetanjali Krishna. Pictures sometimes speak louder than words. I thought of this while watching the video of a young woman I met the other day at Plan India Impact Awards in the Delhi’s India Habitat Centre.   In those rarified environs, 19-year-old Shalini Chauhan’s description of her campaign against child labour and child marriage in her village was impressive. But when I watched ...

"Through this pageant, I want the world to see that beauty comes in all the ...

'It's the children that matter. They are the future,' Bhagaban Mohanta, who was born without legs, tells Geetanjali Krishna.Illustration: Uttam Ghosh/Rediff.com I am always in awe of people who refuse to be stereotyped. Breaking out of societal moulds is brave in itself, but a recent encounter with Bhagaban Mohanta of Mayurbhanj, Odisha, brought me in contact with bravery of another level altogether. When 47-year-old Mohanta was born with flipper-like appendages in place of legs, many in his ...

The never-ending parties of Lisbon!

Geetanjali Krishna arrived in the capital of Portugal during the festival of St Anthony and experienced just how the city had reinvented itself as one of Europe's hottest travel destinations. A Saint Anthony's parade through Lisbon, Portugal.Photograph: Rafael Marchante/Reuters.   There's something oddly comforting about revisiting a city as a tourist.
