I Migrate... Posted by Nitul Ojha, Jul 05 2020 I migrate: When you call me a migrant .. You label me. And you feel comfortable behind that label. You think you understand me. Or it evokes a sense of pity in you. The defining of me makes me more comprehensible to you. Less scary. Because you like certainty. You want things to be stable. That is what you mean by security, pension and gratuity. I am not a migrant. Yes I migrate. And I love migrating. Have you ever tried it? When you a watch a flock of Siberian cranes , do you feel pity or do you feel awe? Don't you wish in the innermost regions of your heart that you too had the courage to migrate, once in a while. The migrating birds will not feed for months. And many of our species actually fly over the Everest. And many will not make it. Migrating is a choice ... Read Full Story

First Teen Awakin Call Reflections Posted by Lena Kimura, Jul 02 2020 This past Tuesday (June 30th), Anha, Leela, and I held our first Teen Awakin Call as a project for the ServiceSpace Internship. It was the most enlightening experiences of my life. And after just a week of preparation, the three of us managed to pull together this amazing Teen Awakin Call with our amazing special guest, Melissa Stephens. I'm especially proud of our teamwork and how diligently everyone communicated with one another. I think the main reason why the call ran smoothly was because our chemistry as a team worked so well. I was definitely very nervous before the call and Anha and Leela kept reminding us that it will all work out perfectly and that we just needed to be present. They were so right. The idea behind a Teen Awakin Call was to create a space similar to the Awakin Calls where we can ask questions to a guest and ... Read Full Story
