For many people January 1st is that token of new dawn, new year and new beginnings. For me this slate gets cleaned on January 8th, my birthday, my new year. This past one year was the harshest in my 25 years of being.
But it was my 24th year where I also challenged myself as a journalist. I read somewhere, "women are like tea bags, they don't know how strong they are untill put in hot water."
Here is my work from past one year for you to see how strong that tea was.
In January 2020, I was a reporter with @htTweets covering education in Chandigarh.
On Jan 7 last year I reported how school students’ data is being sold to coaching centres for Rs 4 to Rs 6 per child.…

Dear @TwitterIndia and @verified I have received a notice from you legal department suggesting a complaint has come saying I am violating law of India on Twitter. In doing what? Journalism and sharing critiques of ongoing crisis? I have not been told what the complaint is.
@TwitterSupport @misskaul @PayalKamat @TwitterIndia. Since your platform is used by many hatemongers who tag me constantly with messages carrying Islamophobe content, I would really have appreciated it if your legal department noted that as well instead of sending me a notice.
I think it's in the public interest you share your policy about those who tag others with hate content via a vis journalists who put out and share stories. Your platform and it's legal department could be used to intimidate opinion that any authority may be uncomfortable with.

One day a man stood on the roof of his house during a flood, and prayed, ‘God, please save me.’


#TakeResponsibility #StayHomeStaySafe #PhysicalDistancing #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #HRwithEM
Soon a rowboat came by and offered to take him to safety. But he said, ‘No, God will take care of me.’


#TakeResponsibility #StayHomeStaySafe #PhysicalDistancing #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #HRwithEM
The waters kept coming up until they were almost at his waist. Suddenly a helicopter appeared overhead and a rope ladder was lowered down. ‘Oh no, God will take care of me.’

What do you think is the cause of such violence? Whatever the cause, violence is not the solution to conflict resolution. Let me share some points on "Conflict resolution in marriage and relationships during the lock down."
In Luke 17:1 Jesus said to his disciples “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!” God created us for connection, not isolation.
Everything that is alive relates to something else, the proof that you are alive and well is your ability to connect with others. Broken relationship is man's primary problem; that's why we need redemption and reconciliation, first to God and then to other people.
