This month, as the UN celebrates the International Day of the Girl Child on October 11, we gear up to celebrate Diwali, and also make a resolution to light up the lives of women we know. Our Feature story brings out the legends linked to water in Indian mythology, that celebrates the power of women by epitomizing them as Goddesses. Like the one associated with Goddess Ganga who embraced the earth as a river, and more. In the ‘In-Focus’ column, we showcase a school in a village in northern India that holds India’s first rural marathon in an effort to empower girls and break social barriers – yet another celebration of woman power. We remember Mahatma Gandhi onhis birth anniversary in a special timeline of historic events in his life.
