About Mandeep

Bio

I am Mandeep, a corporate professional, working as a customer services head for a leading Telecom company . Though my work keeps me constantly occupied, every once in a while, like any other sensitive, aware member of society, I engage with my soul and reflect at my contribution back to humanity. I capture my thoughts and work in form of poetry.

Nothing to boast about but I do have a collection of my verses on motivational leadership, winning, life in general which I share at personal and professional forums.

Recently, like all of us, I was really compelled by this heinous rape incident and crime against women and have expressed my feelings in a poem below. I strongly desire to share it with the larger section and make my humble contribution in keeping this flame kindled in masses and youth in particular.

Therefore, am reaching out to TED as there can be no better forum than this to share your thoughts which might help the cause and make some difference!

The much celebrated Women's Day!
Really appreciate your point of view Thomas! You reverence you have for mother , mother nature and in turn for female gender is admirable. I wish at least half of Indian men and those in some other Asian countries think this like that. Your poem is beautiful n touching.Do share more if you write often.

I really respect your point of view W. Ying! I too have no reservations on celebrating the women kind so worth reverence . However, my submission is more like - Keeping a fast , abstinence from food to cleanse our system, while we know how important it is for our body. Hope you would understand my quest now!

Thanks for appreciating the thought on gender equality Feyisayo! My point is not that celebrating Women's day is a bad idea, the point is till when would we make women rejoice with such fake baits and do nothing substantial to really make difference in day to day life. We are still falling short in providing police protection to women, commit safety, policies and culture which uplifts their stance n stature in the society. So till government does that, we don't want to be impressed by regressive, frilly and frothy measures which make no real difference! Hope that clarifies my point. :-)

What is a well lived life?
For yourself- When you feel in your heart...it is! For others- when they feel and acknowledge ...it is! And others generally acknowledge when they see you contributing to your best in every role you play in your life, personal and professional.

I wish to contribute to the recent awakening and movement which is trggered by heinous rape and death incident in India...
Thanks Theodore, for bringing up this point of view. It does't surprise me at all when I see our men folk living with this attitude n pass on to generations down. Today I happened to discover that even our religions n holy books promote this. Crime and disrespect against women is certainly condemned through the centuries. But solutions recommended and criticism extended only say our Women need to watch out and makeshift to resolve this social menace. So I read- "Those who do not have respect for the women Do not deserve to be born out of their mother. Let their mother be always sterile." I like the idea of those who should not be born, but again we are blaming women for bearing them and should rather be sterile! My Question is - When our men will start taking responsibility for themselves , their conduct and the approach towards women....... Hope we will have some answers... And those answers will be my only Hope!

Thanks everyone for being ampathetic and feeling for what Asian women are going through. Am thoroughly impressed with Lee-Ann who is working with rape victims. However, I want some solutions which can put this gender biased crime to an end. After huge deliberations and listening to other leaders I have thought of 3 things which should be implemented- a. All politicians and government officials who have been ever charged with sexual crimes should be charge sheeted so that we have lawmakers in country who themselves have a clean record. b. Very scrict laws against sex crimes and once convicted no appeal to higher courts should be allowed. c. Fast track courts set for these type of crimes should have fixed TATs for processing and proceedings and justice. Since most of you belong to developed countries and face almost negligible crimes of this kind, pls suggest what more should be done to prevent this menace in our society.
