Every single day in the newspaper, in Pune, there are cases of molestation and sexual abuse. It’s like a pandemic. I joined Safecity in 2016, to help create awareness and stop sexual harassment.

This is what I have to say about my journey so far, put together with my son’s help.

I’m grateful that I don’t have all,

For if I did, I would never call.

I’m grateful that I don’t know everything

Then I can learn something.

I’m grateful for the difficult times,

‘Coz I do grow like the vines.

I’m grateful for each problem

It helps fight the inner demons and goblins.

I’m grateful for my mistakes

From illusions of success I wake.

I’m grateful when I’m tired and unruly

It means I’ve made a difference truly.

Thanks for the troubles and all things sad

They are really not that bad.

Gratitude is useful day and night

Without it I couldn’t fight my plight.
