This story begins with the unachieved dream of a man to play cricket for his country and his wish to live it through his daughter’s dreams. In the Pink City of India, Jaipur, a man worked relentlessly hard to make wings for his daughter, so that she could fly high in the sky of the opportunities and possibilities to achieve her dreams.

Priya Punia’s father built a cricket ground for her training to master the game. Surendra, a Government clerk, sold his property and took loans to buy a 1.5-bigha plot on the outskirts of Jaipur at Harmada for Rs.22 lakh in the year 2010.

Just like Abhinav Bindra’s father, who built a shooting range for him to practice, Priya’s father sets an example with his immense dedication and enthusiastic support for his daughter, despite all odds.

The Talented Indian Community extends best wishes to her for her upcoming match and the brightest future ahead.

Arunima Sinha, Mt Vinson, Padma Shri Awardee, Narendra Modi, First Female Amputee

There is an age old saying that the world worries about disability more than disable people do. There is also a saying that fortune often favours the brave. Both these phrases can be attributed to Arunima Sinha, a former national level volleyball player turned mountaineer who despite her disability of being an amputee has managed to climb Mt Vinson, the tallest peak of Antarctica.

Losing her one leg in a horrific incident where she was thrown off a moving train for resisting chain snatching didn’t deter the brave heart in going after her goals. The latest feat just goes on to add another feather in the cap of the Uttar Pradesh girl who had earlier achieved the excellent feat of being world’s first female amputee to climb the Mt Everest in the year 2013.

As Arunima announced her distinguished feat to the world on Twitter, the whole nation raised a toast to her and her social media was flooded with heaps of praises. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated her in a tweet calling the 30 year old as “Pride of India”.

A Padma Shri Awardee and Tenzing Norgay Awardee, Arunima aspires to open a free sports academy for the poor and differently-abled persons. She is an epitome of bravery, strength, and spirit.

We at The Talented Indian congratulate her for outstanding achievement and wish her all the luck for her future adventures.

Project ‘De Náva’ : Conceived & Directed by Vaayudhwani

Published

on

Goddess, Durga, Project 'De Náva, Vaayudhwani, Durga Puja, Navratri

The nine days of Navratri are symbolic of the supreme female cosmic power or Goddess Shakti who is worshipped in her variously manifested forms as Durga, Laxmi and Saraswati. But contradictorily in a goddess-worshipping community women also have to fight numerous battles of violence, abuse, etc, in their everyday lives. Thus, Navratri being celebrated merely as a festival of colors, dancing and singing out to the Goddess feels pointless, when on the other hand our women remain exploited. This thought is manifested beautifully by Vaayudhwani, through her Project ‘De Náva’.

(Picture Credits: VaayuDhwani Productions)

Project ‘De Náva’ is a unique social experiment with the key objective to initiate the message #SeekTheGoddessWithinYou, which is not gender-biased, in a culture of blind worship. In this, a photoshoot was done portraying various avatars of goddess. Women from different walks of life came together to highlight some relevant issues like disability, body positivity, and LGBT rights.

(Vaayudhwani)

Vaayudhwani is a creative multi-talent, with a love for writing and visual story-telling. Her passion for innovating with new concepts and implementing content in creative formats, appeals hugely to the audience. Her first short film themed on ‘Swatchh Bharat’ won her an award particularly due to the concept. She, along with her friend Vajranabh Natraaj Maharshi founded the Vaayudhwani Productions, for such projects.

This initiative to connect people to the true purpose of this festival, by giving a fresh and an abstract perspective to Navratri and propagating the message of #SeekTheGoddessWithinYou, is truly commendable. Check out the quick video to know more about the concept.

India’s #MeToo Movement : ‘Log Kya Kahenge’ by Shipra Rastogi

India, #MeToo Movement, Log Kya Kahenge, Shipra Rastogi, Rahul Arya, Sandart

The subtly expressed grief on the birth of a girl, the hesitation in allowing girls to come home late, the fear of letting them dress to their choices and not allowing them to follow their hearts, are all punctuated with the emotion of “Log kya kahenge?” (what will people say?).

The recent #MeToo movement has thrown light on the magnitude of the sexual assault problem in our country. This agonizing state is beautifully portayed in “The Log Kya Kahenge : INDIA’s #MeToo movement”, written and directed by Rahul Arya and performed by Shipra Rastogi. It is a commentary on the outlook of society towards a girl and the challenges she faces throughout her life, from the eyes of a girl.

Shipra Rastogi, a television and film actress hailing from Lucknow, has been on Crime Patrol & several advertisement. She made her debut with the movie ‘Dumdum Digga Diga’ and is currently shooting for her next movie ‘Dindayal Upadhyay’.

With movements like #MeToo, women have started raising and lending their voices to the cause, hinting towards the evolution of an empowered and strong women, rising above the mentality of “Log kya kahenge”.

What Matters More : Places or People? | A Story by Niharika Mishra

What Matters More, Places or People, Story, Niharika Mishra, Story Teller

Travelling is one of the best teachers of life, as it gives us the experiences and moments to be cherished forever. Niharika Mishra shares one such experience, from her trip to Europe.

The trip started with a realization of a learning journey ahead, right from the moment of boarding the aircraft. Interactions with the flight attendants, co-passengers, tourist guides and the locals, proved to be a learning curve for the family. But one particular event that happened in Amsterdam, really changed the perspective of Niharika regarding what’s important – people or places.

During one of her tram rides in Amsterdam, her interaction with the ticket seller of the tram, was very memorable. He, very sweetly, had asked her to have an ice-cream instead of buying the ticket. That one incident made her realize that the warmth and affection of people around you, even in the most common situations, has the potential to leave a lifelong impact. She has a smile on her face, every time
she eats an ice-cream and remembers her Santa Clause.

Something as simple as a tram-ride and as simple as an ice-cream can also help us learn an important lesson of life that “more than places people matter”.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Eminent Wordsmith, Distinguished Statesman, Poet, Former Prime Minister of India

Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the former Prime Minister of India was one of the iconic leaders of India. He was an outstanding parliamentarian and the stalwart of the Indian politics. He was born in a middle class family on 25th December, 1924 in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh.

He started his political career as a freedom fighter in 1942, when he was arrested for 23 days during the Quit India Movement. He eventually entered into the national politics and became the national president of Jana Sangh. Later he founded BJP with his colleagues, was elected to Lok Sabha 10 times. He further went on to become the Prime Minister of India thrice.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee at the Pokhran nuclear blast site after the nuclear test in 1998.

His vision and efforts have contributed to the growth of this country, in more ways than we can imagine. As the Prime Minister of India, he took landmark decisions which shaped the future and brought India to the ranks to emerging global superpowers. Nuclear Tests were conducted under his supervision at Pokhran in 1998 despite global political pressure. The diplomatic peace process with Pakistan with the historic inauguration of the Delhi-Lahore bus service in February 1999 and the resultant Lahore Declaration, the Golden Quadrilateral Highway and the various “domestic economic and infrastructural reforms, including encouraging the private sector and foreign investments, reducing governmental waste, encouraging research and development and privatization of some government owned corporations”, are some to name.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee Inaugurating Bus Service Between Delhi and Lahore in February 1999

He never married in his personal life and dedicated his entire life to national service. However, he has an adopted daughter, Namita. His creative instinct makes him fond of music, dance and poetry. He has compiled his poems in form of books.

His selfless service to the nation, from being arrested for 23 days during the Quit India Movement to leading the country thrice as the Prime Minister, Mr. Vajpayee was truly the Bharat Ratna of India.

Here are some of his poems.
