Women Interfaith Journey
November 2007, India
Creating Spaces, Connecting People, Changing Lives

 

“We have got wings which inspires to fly high, higher, highest”
“ My eyes are closed and it seems that I am watching a beautiful dream wishing that it continues for long”
Nothing can be greater than the feeling that there are no eyes constantly staring at you and keeping a check. God! I am breathing in fresh air”
