Desh Ki Beti

first_imgAfter watching Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl played by Jahanvi Kapoor, my heart really asked me one question; What is actually ‘Desh ki beti?’This is the question I think every person should ask themselves and not just girls or women? How do we want to paint the image of India in the world? Because I know the condition of women actually tells you if your country is progressing as a whole.It is not true that women are not getting opportunities in our country. NO! but they are not getting equal opportunities. This is because there is no check after getting the job. Women do get jobs and opportunities but then why is there a decline in the workforce of women? Is it the safety issue? Family issue? NO! The issue is of thinking. After all the efforts girls put in they are never considered equal. My family never differentiated between a girl and a boy and always helped me to spread my wings and fly but eventually, they too get tensed by the fact that what will happen when I will go out alone. What will happen when I am living alone? How will society react to my choices? After watching the movie today I was moved by the bond between the Father and the daughter. Though her mother and brother never supported her choices; her father was always there to pick her up whenever she had a downfall. We all need someone to pick us up when we fall and to trust us when we want to spread our wings. Like Gunjan had her Dad; I have my family to support me, I would request each and everyone reading this article to support each other because some words of appreciation and trust enhance the confidence of the other person and you never know what the other person is capable of doing.Criticism has never done anybody good. Healthy criticism is good but laughing on choices and making the other person feel weak is never healthy. No one likes to feel less than the other person. it is our responsibility to create equal opportunities and make the workplace equal for anyone who is working there irrespective of the gender. Everyone qualifies the entrance criteria with the same amount of dedication hence everyone should be treated while keeping that in mind.No one is weak remember! We can be what we want to be!last_img read more

Runaway Freight Car Rams Commuter Train, Injuring 150

first_imgCANTON, Mass. — A runaway freight car rammed into an MBTA train yesterday evening, tossing rush-hour commuters from their seats and leaving 150 passengers and crew with injuries, most of them minor. MBTA Train 917 left Boston’s South Station for Stoughton at 4:40 p.m. with 300 passengers. “The lady in front of me was thrown forward pretty hard, and she broke her nose and had a serious cut to her face,” said Terrence Jackson, 43, a passenger from Brockton. “Everybody did their part. I helped the woman in front of me. The passengers that were less injured or weren’t injured helped people that were hurt.” Dozens of emergency workers from around the region carried passengers and crew members away from the tracks on stretchers, rushing them to area hospitals. Nearby residents saw passengers walking through the adjacent woods with head injuries, some with severe bleeding, looking dazed. Although none of the injuries was life-threatening, the large number of cuts, bruises, and neck and back injuries forced emergency workers to use buses when they ran out of ambulance space. Sometime before 5:20, a freight car loaded with building materials that had been parked at a nearby lumber yard, a few miles from the Canton Junction station, came loose. It rumbled some 3 miles, said Acting MBTA Police Chief Paul MacMillan. “We knew we were coming into Canton Junction, and suddenly the train stopped,” said Tony Phillips, a 42-year-old passenger who works for a Boston advertising firm and lives in Stoughton. “All the sudden, there was a bang, a huge explosion. People were screaming, ‘Oh, my God, what happened?”‘ An alert engineer halted the passenger train before impact, preventing what could have been far more serious injuries, officials said. The crash occurred about a half-mile north of the Canton Junction (Mass.) station. Jackson, the Brockton passenger, said he normally takes the Middleborough/Lakeville line into work, but overslept yesterday and took a later train from the Stoughton station. Joe Pesaturo, an MBTA spokesman, said the car was parked at Cohenno Inc. a lumber yard in Stoughton. Everyone on the train who was standing fell to the floor, Phillips said. The engineer was being treated at a hospital for serious injuries, but is expected to recover, said Richard A. Davey, general counsel for the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company, which runs commuter service for the MBTA. Davey would not identify the engineer.center_img “We are cooperating fully with authorities to determine what happened,” Sease said. The MBTA train was able to stop before impact with the freight car and avoid derailing because of a signal on the tracks, tripped off by the runaway car, that sent a warning to the engineer’s cabin in the form of a white light, Pesaturo said. Last night, police had sealed off the railroad tracks around the lumber yard. A police officer said that the area was part of an investigation and that all the workers had left. The crash disrupted commuter service on the Providence/Stoughton line. Service on 10 Amtrak trains was delayed for two hours or more, said Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari. “That’s what you get for sleeping late,” he said.Noah Bierman of the Globe staff and Globe correspondents John Guilfoil and Jillian Jorgensen contributed to this report. CSX Transportation owns the freight car, but company spokesman Gary Sease said he does not yet know how it came loose from what he called a “customer location.” “We think he did everything that he should have under the circumstances,” Davey said. Bradford F. Cohenno, listed in corporate records as the company president, did not return messages left at his home and office last night. “It was rolling by itself,” MacMillan said. “It didn’t have an engine on it.”last_img read more
