Every girl has an aspiration to learn in English medium school or a renowned school, unfortunately at the age of admission they don't have the right to choose and hence parents fulfill their own dreams by putting in schools what they think is right for the girl child or by listening to the society they belong.

The Programme Caused a Churning in Me – Part IIThe Change Continues.There was something at my office needing correction. I had a colleague who was at the same level as me. Being in corporate office, he always would seek my advice on many issues and he had to follow the guidelines I gave. After some years he left and joined another company only to return later to my company as my reporting manager. This made me envious of him and created a kind of rivalry in my mind. Admitting this to him could put my job at risk and could have ruined my career.

During the session and quiet time there I had already decided about the correction which I had to do after reaching home.

Mr.Burjis & Mrs. Dilnaz Mohta

Burjis Mohta's Words:My association with IofC-MRA and the Asia Plateau family has been as of ‘on an off’ basis since several years now, as a result of circumstances. During one such long phase of being off touch, I had severe problems with my marital life viz., separation for a good five years from my spouse and daughter since the very early years of marriage and the resulting consequences leading to my marriage on the verge of legal dissolution.
