A forum for women to talk to women

It’s time to eat!

 

It’s Christmas time in Bonn and the first thing that strikes your nostrils is the lovely smell of Christmas goodies at the local market. From spiced wine served warm in special mugs to chocolate cake with cinnamon, from roasted almonds to cotton candy, from chinese noodles to traditional german dumplings with vanilla sauce, the Christmas market is a feast for the eyes, nose…and the palate! While we went out on our own very personal round of the Christmas market in Bonn,  we decided this might just be the perfect time to organize an online cooking competition, in which you send us your best recipe.

Think before you “like”

“With all respect, everyday, thousands of people die, but still the world moves on. Just because one politician died a natural death, everyone just goes bonkers. They should know we are resilient by force, not by choice. When was the last time anyone showed some respect or even a two minute silence for shaheed Bhagat Singh, Azad, Sukhdev or any of the people because of whom we are free living Indians? Respect is earned, given and definitely not forced. Today Mumbai shuts down due to fear, not respect.”

A murder masked by religion?

The hardest thing for a mother is to lose her child. The pain caused is much greater than that caused by childbirth. Savita Halappanavar was brave enough to accept that she was losing her baby. 31-year-old Savita, a dentist by profession, went to a hospital in Ireland complaining of back pain. After being told that she was miscarrying, she sought medical termination of her pregnancy.
