Day by day our lives go on,


As lives usually do.
Yet, sometimes our lives seem to stop
Mid-cycle.
Leaving us confused, scared.
Lives are tricky that way.
Day by day, our lives go on,
As lives usually do.
Yet, sometimes if we are lucky enough,
That special gift will walk right in
At just the right time
And brighten it up a bit.
Lives are unpredictable that way.
Day by day, our lives go on,
As lives usually do.
Yet, sometimes in the middle of that
Ordinary life,
trust will bring you a fairy tale.

Women Awake!
“A Woman's love is in action, she looks with her heart
and feels with her eyes, she is the cement that keeps the
family together and her love lasts a life time.”

Isn't it just wonderful that a little more than 200 Korku


women of our tribal belt of Chikaldara joyfully participated
th
in the celebration of International women's Day on 8 March?
The children of the Holy Cross Marathi Primary School set
the tone of the entire sessions, with a prayer dance, inviting
all women to be empowered with the qualities of Mary the Mother of Jesus, who through her 'Fiat'
submitted herself to God's Holy will and so brought forth Jesus, as the Saviour of the world. Then Sr.
Sangeeta Dhanwate the Head Mistress inspired us as she introduced the Great women of India, with their
portraits. Rev. Fr. Shimon further awakened the women to the reality that they are the hearth in a home,
and need to keep the fire of love burning in a family, where all feel warm, especially the girl-child, with
no discrimination. The presence of Dr. Sr. Shally John, from Wardha Medical College was highly
appreciated, as Sister in all simplicity expounded the taboos of 'Mental Illness' and suggested ways and
means to keep oneself mentally sound. Oh yes! The sessions of Sr. Elvira SCC empowering the women
to be 'The light, the salt and the leaven' of their homes with the 'PRESENCE OF THE DIVINE' within,
left the gathering with rapt attention. The action songs and the power point presentation added much joy.
The entire programme was captured in a capsule by Sr. Mukta Parkhe, who emphasised that the women,
especially the tribal women are women of strength who can bring about 'The Kingdom of God envisaged
by Jesus Christ. We concluded with games, actions songs, prize- distribution and a sumptuous meal.
“Woman truly you love through action and your love last all through life” Hat off to you!

the Nila Project, the Aim and Objectives, strategies and our approach in working with the

Developing this attitude will make to see the bright side of life and expect best things to happen
in life. Mr. Wagh spoke about the formation of Self Help Groups. The main concept of SHGs,

to create the habit of savings, utilization of local resources, to create awareness about rights, to
assist the members financially at the time of need, entrepreneurship development, to identify
problems, analyzing and finding solutions in the groups, to act as a media for socio economic
development of the village, to organize training for skill development, to help in recovery of
loans, to gain mutual understanding, to develop trust and self confidence, to build up team work
and to develop leadership qualities. He also spoke about the various schemes and trainings that
are availed to the SHG women's group. Both Fr. Benjamin and Mr. Wagh inspired the women
by their speech on how to make the habit of a bit of saving, how to have control on individual
and family spending, management of their own money, how to clear debt, how to run the small
scale businesses in the locality itself and how to make investments rather than expenditure
through the short video and placed before them some examples of the inspiring people who
have made the vast difference in life that is from “Rags to Riches”. Some of the women shared

views about how beneficial it is to form the Self help groups and the gains that got through
SHGs. After the session Ms. Anu the animator gave a vote of thanks to the invited guests. The
