Hard-earned name

Totally agreed. Name is our identity and no one wants to lose their identity then why women. I too have been wondering about this strange practice and have been told that women may have some complications post-marriage if they continue with their maiden name, is that true? For example, if I dont change my name on passport after marriage, what will be the repercussions?

Looking forward to seeing you in the press-panel in Bangalore :-)

All the best

I would like to write infinite words to express how much I admire you but I fail to accept that words can do enough justice to your contributions and achievements.

I have a very small question, I am based in bhopal (m.p) I want to devote time apart from my full time work to community service. All big organizations refuse to assign work even I am willing to contribute and possess a desire for the same. Could you please suggest something?

Respected Kiran Didi,

please accept pranaam from me and my family.

Your social development for weak people of socieity is really admirable and makes our regards more and more to you. The emotional values are enriched in your heart, your knowledge values are deep in your brain and your motivational values are so strong in your inner and outer personality.
Some people use to do social work for became known to people through media for smile on their own face but you have done social work for see the smile on others face and i know its provide u lot more satisfaction and achievement in your life. Its called the real success because you values emotionalism more than materialism and such type of motherly feelings and personality makes the people more than almighty God because The God born us on this earth through womb of mother but mother takes care of his child forever which The God doesn't do.

Salute to your efforts and we pray to God to give make u more and more strong that others could get more and more benefits from you.

Sadar Pranaam.

Yes mam. I too agree with you. Why should a woman leave behind her maiden name and adopt her husband's name soon after marriage? This is totally unfair. People should first know us as ourselves and what we stand for before going on to find out who our husbands are.

Niti said...

with all due respect, its not just a maiden name that a woman gives up once married. the social stigma in india is such that any career minded woman is looked down upon - as it gives a bad name to the family - a working 'bahu'.

having an ego is a bad thing, and any attitude or identity that we have is said to be hampering the so called relationship. why just us? and i am not even talking about any particular section of society..

so what name are we talking about. thats just a tip if the iceberg. we give up our lives, or calibre, our education when married. and if we fight for our rights, we give up our families. difficult choice. how is female foeticide different from what wr are doing right now? instead of killing a baby we bring them up and throw them in a marriage, n then kill them, thier dreams. we havent moved much furthur since the old times. its better off killing the baby. only life goes, dreams dont.

i regret being born a girl in a country like India. we are eons back. either we be strong and stand against everyone or we keep killing ourselves. either way, we're not 'happy'.

सुजाता said...

if you really want to show your respect to KIRAN JI then you must start respecting freedom of your wife ,your sister,your female friends..every woman around you from now..
tell your son that his mother ,your wife is a great woman and you can learn good things from her.Teach him to respect females.
I think This is the best way to show your respect and admiration for woman power.

Hi Mam,

Making voting day a non-holiday with permission to report late at work might not really increase the turn out.

People might not vote at all if they have to go to office.

I think it is more about educating people and making them aware about their right to vote.

जब भी कोई बात डंके पे कही जाती है
न जाने क्यों ज़माने को अख़र जाती है ।

झूठ कहते हैं तो मुज़रिम करार देते हैं
सच कहते हैं तो बगा़वत कि बू आती है ।

फर्क कुछ भी नहीं अमीरी और ग़रीबी में
अमीरी रोती है ग़रीबी मुस्कुराती है ।

अम्मा ! मुझे चाँद नही बस एक रोटी चाहिऐ
बिटिया ग़रीब की रह – रहकर बुदबुदाती है

‘दीपक’ सो गई फुटपाथ पर थककर मेहनत
इधर नींद कि खा़तिर हवेली छ्टपटाती है ।

आप सभी को गणतंत्र भारत के स्वाधीनता दिवस की हार्दिक शुभकामनायें !

आइये हम सब पुनः प्रण करें कि हम अपने देश को एक नई दिशा देंगे और विश्व में भारत का नाम गौरवान्वित करेंगे ........
जिस रोज़ हर पेट को रोटी मिल जायेगी
जिस रोज़ हर चेहरा हँसता नज़र आयेगा
जिस रोज़ नंगे बदन कपड़ों से ढके होंगे
जिस रोज़ खुशियों में वतन डूब जायेगा
उस रोज़ मेरे नग्मों का अंदाज़ देखना
मेरी आवाज़ में एक नई आवाज़ देखना .
जिस रोज़ किसानो के भरे खलियान होंगे
और रोज़गारशुदा वतन के नौजवान होंगे
जिस रोज़ पसीने की सही कीमत मिलेगी
इन महलों से बड़े जिस रोज़ इन्सान होंगे
उस रोज़ मेरे नग्मों का अंदाज़ देखना
मेरी आवाज़ में एक नई आवाज़ देखना .

जिस रोज़ राह में कोई अबला न लुटेगी
जिस रोज़ दौलत से कोई जान न मिटेगी
जिस रोज़ यहाँ जिस्म के बाज़ार न लगेंगे
जिस रोज़ डोली दर से कोई सूनी न उठेगी
उस रोज़ मेरे नग्मों का अंदाज़ देखना
मेरी आवाज़ में एक नई आवाज़ देखना .

ये हाथ पसारे मासूम बचपन हजारों
जिस रोज़ मुझे राह में घूमते न दिखेंगे
जिस रोज़ ज़र्द, पिचके वीरान चेहरों पे
भूख के नाचते - गाते बादल न दिखेंगे
उस रोज़ मेरे नग्मों का अंदाज़ देखना
मेरी आवाज़ में एक नई आवाज़ देखना .

Mam u r most admirable & able to influence to all india without holding any caste & religion bar.u r the steel lady who always made strong & wise decision.i read ur interview when u asked why u choose IPS being a lady? ur answer- 'coz i want to b outstanding.'that was really chellanging job @ that time bt its again a need to b outstanding Kiran Bedi as Prime Minister of India. i m 27 year old now bt never casted vote coz these politicians r imposed to us.We dont want the potential people like u to reform the society.The day when u wil join politics i wil start using my right of voting.I kno its not a easy road for a honest person like v all youth believe that u wil made it posiible. u wil face a lot of hurdle in ur way bt believe us v wil always there to supposrt u.
