One more Women Center

 Under the able leadership of Head Mistress Ms Ranjana Shivdsani, The VBM School, near Nana Chowk, an Audio Visual Center, Nursery and Junior KG classes were inaugurated on the 7th of January 2006, at the Educational Institution.

The Chief guest at the function was Mr. Niranjan Hiranandani, the President of the HSN Collegiate Board who has given an uplift to the structural beautification of the school.

 In association with Times Group and Women’s Movement for Peace and Prosperity (WMPP), the school has also set up a Women Center for the upliftment of the young students and their mothers.

The Center will provide vocational guidance, communication skills, meditation courses eg Art of Living and Vipassana, Yoga, Medical check ups etc

Representatives of Times Group and The Women’s Movement for Peace and Prosperity stated that the Nation’s hope lies in the Woman, Youth, the Educationists and the Judiciary.

 The Women Soul will reign, but for that she needs to be empowered.

Does she?

Woman is Shakti!

The Women of the Women’s Movement for Peace and Prosperity, believe that what is required is that the woman wakes up to her true potential!

A woman is more compassionate and besides she has the potential to influence two families!

 And for that end, the woman must be awakened and the man be sensitized!

 Also present at the august occasion:

Mr. Ram.Maheshwary, Ms Maya Shahani, Ms Shakun Narain, Mr. JK Bhambhani

Mr. J.K Bhambhani, Ms Shah, Mr Punwani, Ms C. Mascarenhas…

Building Bridges to more 'Women Centers' and more 'good people'

Have you ever thought about the reason why the underworld is so well connected?

It is because they have a common agenda. Mostly Greed and Power.

The time has come to get good people together.  I believe that one is a 'good person' if one makes an effort to contribute to the welfare of the planet, for the joy of being of service, and for no other motive.

Maharishi Karve gave shelter to 5 widows and made them 'stand' on their feet in 1916. SNDT acquired a University status in 1936. The campus still exists in Pune. Karve Kuteer is a heritage cottage.

Today SNDT enjoys an audience of 70,000 women!

Offered him my pranaam and my books.

Bapu said in his pravachan: 

Paap (evil) leaves you as you dip into the Ganga, and attacks you as you come out of the blessed pure water...

Better would be to constantly remain immersed in 'Harinaam'

A star in her right! (Psychologist. Harvard Medical School

Shamshah gave a talk on Mood swings at the Times of India bldg on the 30th of Aug 2006. Some points (the way I understood them): To distinguish what are normal and abnormal 'mood swings'...if one has control over ones moods one is swinging more towards 'normal' Causes for mood swings may be: genetic, temperament, stress, fatigue, hormones...depressive disorders may be major or minor...all with bi-polar disorder do not do badly in life...they can be productive...
