A long holiday at Riya

A long holiday at Riya

t was a long weekend and a planned four days of holidaying to spend time with the kids at Riya. It all started off with a huge festive rush leading to all tickets booked and I stood stranded not knowing how to reach my destination. May be luck was on my side that day (Not literally I must say). I managed to get a ticket in an economy class government red bus (KSRTC) where the seats reminded me of my

Life is a cinema…

The day I took the decision of starting Riya Foundation, I never ever asked myself would I be able to take up the challenge. It was an impulsive decision like many others that I had taken. But I was clear of the way I wanted to run it and what I expected. It’s been 3 years and the journey has never been smooth. We have had our shares of success and failures. There have been questions that even I have

Only a Mother can understand another mothers heart...

How often have you had to rush back from work or cancel appointments or miss a function because there’s no one to take care of your child back home ? It truly gets difficult to tag the child as their tantrums can make life miserable.   When Keerthana, a Mother of a special child, had to sacrifice her job and all its luxuries because she found it difficult to balance work and home – she had to fetch her child from the

COME…TOUCH MY LIFE…

COME...TOUCH MY LIFE...

Quite a few people have made a lot of difference in Riya’s life. Times when she has strayed away, when she is in danger, when she has to get in and out of the car, when she had to eat, when she is stuck in the house or in the car. Recently once Riya was stuck in the car. What happened was… after completing all the chores of the house; we were all set to go to school. I pulled

Smile

“Sometimes just a smile on our face can help to make this world a better place. Stand up for the things that are right. Try to talk things out instead of fight. Lend a hand when you can, get involved this is good. You can help to make a difference in your neighborhood.”

Poem…

Poem...

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit. … Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns As every one of us sometimes learns. And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he

A DAY WITH “RIYA”

A DAY WITH “RIYA”

On the night of December 25th, 2000 when the entire world was celebrating their ‘Millennium Christmas’, I went into labor. The hospital did not have enough staff to handle the emergencies and there was utter chaos everywhere. However the duty doctor and the nurse on duty tried their best to help me and make me comfortable. It was a very crude and a hurried delivery. At 12.20 am, through the pain, I heard a distant cry of the baby. Yes!

Down memory lane

Down memory lane

It’s been the most difficult of things to do, putting your thoughts into words. Today when I talk about Riya, am quite surprised we managed to make this dream come alive. I remember the day when we sat down thinking how we will manage to feed the kids without a job in hand, where will they stay? How do we send them to school? How can we make it children friendly and many more such questions? Keerthana was very clear
