- In commemoration of the Women's Day, we went round cheering and celebrating women, reminding them how beautiful and strong they are. We also gave out leaflets with beautiful reminders on it. It was a great time sharing hugs, love and everything beautiful with other ladies. We adjusted crowns, lifted up souls, inspired hope, encouraged and celebrated every woman we met today.

- Few days ago, I was going through an old diary and saw where I wrote - "I want to talk people into fulfilling their purpose and passion in life"
Yeah... It's still valid.
Though the government has made an announcement to recognise our gender identity as “Hijras” or “Third Gender” in 2013 and promised to rehabilitate us by appointing 12 of us in government jobs in the first phase, they have failed to keep their promises so far. When we were going through the medical tests for the job, the doctors of the government hospital refused to touch us and instructed their assistants to strip us stark naked in the middle of the examination hall in front of everybody to “conduct the test”. Later they reported to the Social Welfare Department that we are all full grown “men” and not “hijras” because of our genitalia. The government should have known that they cannot define gender by what genitalia a person is born with. They should also have appointed specialists in the medical board who would actually understand our identity.
Nine of our community members are extremely lucky to have found a job in this factory where we make bags and shoes. But that’s just nine of us. What about the rest of our population? We used to go out and collect a small amount of money from the shops and from the streets to earn money for our existence. But now, people refuse to give us even that very small amount of money saying why don’t we get a job and work like “normal” people since the government has recognised us. But our question is who would give us those jobs? Them or the government? Both the parties have only given us hope but failed to keep their promises. Where will we go? We are capable of doing anything like any other human being. We want to be a part of the mainstream workforce and help to develop our country like everyone else and live with proper dignity. Is it too much to ask? - Munni, Artisan, Logos

’s Instagram feed, selecting and sharing powerful images taken by National Geographic’s emerging female photographers around the world. Women photographers are often under-represented and under-celebrated, so I’m thrilled to mark this day by profiling the talented female story-tellers and image-makers that are working hard to build empathy across borders x #iwd2018 #timesup
I designed a suite of handlettering for Facebook's International Women's Day celebrations this year. The five designs ended up on tshirts and totes. I take a lot of reference from old typographical design, and try to present the work in a contemporary way. When I'm teaching workshops in illustrated type, I try to remind the participants that lettering's function is twofold - to carry meaning in a literal sense, and convey a sensibility or tone or message in a visual way. Letters are pictures too!

Achieving equal rights for women can’t wait. Inequality contributes to problems like poverty, hunger, and disease, and empowerment can help solve them. On International Women’s Day, let’s break down barriers so girls and women everywhere can determine their futures and change the world.The #TimeIsNow
for gender equality. #IWD2018

Good morning people!! Today; we'd like us to discuss on VENDOR SOURCING.. What does Clients really look out when sourcing for vendors for their events?
In our 9 years of experience as Event Planners for both Corporate and Social events; we'd share some with you.
2. Quality/ Value added services
3. Track record/ past jobs/recommendations
4. Interpersonal relationship/Ability to connect with the client
5. Pricing/Budget friendly to the pocket
7. Visibility: Online/social media platforms
I'd like to add that vendors/service providers must be mindful on how they make comments on blogs with their business pages. We have heard/seen clients turned off by just seeing vulgar/harsh or argumentative commenta of vendors. Many have lost businesses by this actions.
We'd love to hear from you as well, what do you think? Drop your pointers below 👇👏👏 #vendormanagement
