As number of days are observed throughout the year, just in order to make them stand out more particular to honor.  Today is International Day of the Girl.

Each year on October 11 girl’s rights around the world is observed while we’ve made a lot of progress, I thought to give it a special feature this week. As all the imagesyou see around is because of the girls.

Girls are the trendsetters of the colourful fashion industry. Cultural diversity has been immensely seen around when beautifully displayed upon a girl, though in whatever age is she?  There are some challenges which almost every girl would have encountered while choosing her line of career.

Whereas if I take it to the toddlers age even before choosing my career path, number of times I  thought that  life would  be much  better IF I WERE A BOY. Yet now I’m pretty content being a girl.

There are many others which outbreak the lives of girls around the world. This is not at all suitable for a girl’s mental health. In short, here’s everything you need to know about International Day of the Girl.

On this day, our foremost obligation is to start an awareness campaign about life of girls, for girls, by the girls till where we have our reach.

 What sort of challenges?

 

This includes everything from admittance to education and healthcare, being forced into child marriages, being blemished by female genital scar,

ornamented like a showpiece and presenting you as a puppet in front of theRishta People’

and equal opportunities as children and young adults too. Girls in all countries continue to experience gender discrimination on a daily basis.

Through, the day today I wish to see girls progressing up in all fields of life.

Talent and Skills Cursed by Reference System

Standard

 

“WE DO NOT HAVE A DEMOCRATIC MEDIA, I WROTE THIS PIECE TO ALL NEWSPAPERS YET NO ONE DARED TO PUBLISH. SO I DECIDED TO BRING IT OUT” Fatima Hasan Zaidi

 

Dream big to achieve big in life, all my 16 years of education circled around this phrase; but nobody told me that I m living in a country where degree, qualification, talent, skills and experience does not matter. It is an insignificant little thing cursed by the reference system.

Where ever I go with my resume with massive experience in my relevant subject, where my publications, skills, experience and my hard work is the only reference I have. I m not entertained by the authorities because either they do not trust in themselves and are afraid to see the resume and hire on what their mind says or they do not have the potential to do so.

All they need is a strong living being to be at the back of the one who wants to do something and they fail to understand that the reference won’t be putting in effort in the work but the person who stand firm with a CV.
I wonder if reputed organizations ever change their policies and optimistically hire the graduates on behalf of what they are and not what their sources are.
