Daughters of Ganges

Touching story

vikas chandra

A riddle of kinds, in a shroud of white, where is that Paavi, who loved her life
Lo and behold that angel’s birth, how tramped on daisies, little feet of mirth
Now cuffed to a timeless mire of slurs, a widow they discern, “a dead man’s wife!”
Nothing afore, afar that hearth, kindled pyre of a woman’s worth

Kashi has aged a thousand years with many more years of Paavi’s woe
Beside the Ganges, her endless flow, once a darling daughter’s squandered glow
Surrogate profound, a mother found, dissolved her allure many moons ago
In dusky digs, now a sinking shadow, a gambled life, easy come easy go

Through splintered sense, as she recounts, a Bangla bride from a hamlet afar
She, a cherub of eight, groom, fifty or so, what on earth that means, would the poor child know?
Solemnized by fire, a ritual bizarre, widowed next day, a…

Remembering Robin Williams

It’s 2008, moments before a BBC broadcast live from the stage at TED. But something’s gone wrong. The house lights are still up, the camera ops are looking at one another, official-looking folks are wandering at the stage apron muttering into headsets, and the panelists are sitting patiently onstage but looking, increasingly, baffled. Minutes go by.

And then a voice rises from the audience, wondering “why at a technology conference everything is running so shittily”! As Kim Zetter wrote: “at least that’s the word I think he used; it was hard to hear the last word through the audience’s laughter.” It was Robin Williams, who’d spent the day watching TED, and who now jumped out of the audience to grab the mic and reel off 10 or 15 minutes — reports vary — of improvised…

So many things to Learn

Having to decide how much to charge for an item using the fix cost and variable cost, that is one of the hardest part when you have never done it before; I always thought it was about what I had spent on one item like if something is $4.00 a yard plus my time per hr. I was so wrong, you also need to know your competitors pricing to make sure that you are lower or equal too and not so low you will not make a profit. As I’m growing into this business I am find these things out for myself that there truly is much more to learn. When your young you think that you know it all; not so fast pump the breaks. Like branding (P.O.) NOT P.O. Box either but purchase orders until College I didn’t even know what that meant. Not only that you must do your research in the field that your in or going into; that way you will not go in half-cocked.

It is hard to find investors when you’re still trying to find your way in this business and find the right direction that is right for you, it is best to know your goals the direction is not important right away because that can change many times before you get things right don’t try to get there to fast that just may hinder you. I know first hand that thinking things will happen right away but great things takes time to form the propper way.

Well, I am just about ready to show everyone my work and hope everyone will like everything I have too offer to everyone. I am learning that you will learn something new everyday; what they say is true you do learn something new everyday, and I am truly loving it. It helps to watch shows like Undercover boss and Shark Tank: I am not sure where the show that hired people and chose which companies they would like to work for. I guess not many people liked that one, all though I liked all of them. Whatching and listening to what people are doing and what they have done gives you Ideas of what not to do! or do them differently.

ABOUT JENNIFER

I am a student at Kaplan University in Business Administration. I am planning to start a company soon, called D.A.T.O ( Disabled Americans Taking Over) is one name that I am considering. I live in Savannah Ga, It’s a very beautiful place to visit and don’t forget about my boutique. My plan is to start my own company in the next few years if not sooner. In fashion, tailoring and seamstress type of work.

Every since I was a little girl who have always wanted to become a fashion designer, I figured better late than never! I have taken commercial sewing all four years in my high school career; which gave me the desire to start this venture for a long time, it was not home economics, It was commercial sewing which is different. I have started a business plan that is the hardest part when it comes down to getting funds for the venture that lyes ahead of me and my team.

My company would be geared to people with disabilities it is very difficult to find shoes to fit their feet.
I was an Independent Sales Representative for Avon so I do have some sells in
my blood, this is something that my Mother and Sister have done before me. Having some background in sells really does help so much, you can understand what people are asking you about your business.

I would like to start an app that is for shopping like a catalog with Urban Styles but it would be so much more; I am very diverse and love doing many different kind of things but it’s all about fashion that inspired me, This is what I do. If you like any of my product s let me know by E-mailing me @ http://www.hotwheels55723@gmail.com; and let me know what you think or would like to have, I will be uploading pictures soon.

It is good to know that you have a skill to fall back on when you cannot land a job that you love, and don’t mind going to work everyday until you retire, in about twenty years. So, it may not be the easiest thing to do right out of College or even before you graduate from school which is what I am doing; you may think it would be easier with the fact that you can use the stipends that you could receive every couple months and it would be easy if not for bills. One word Budget! Yep! the one word that every woman hates to hear and some men as well. However, it is worth it if you really want it bad enough to go get it.. It’s yours to have, be repaired to put you life somewhat on hold for a minute or two you’ll find it being worth in at the end of your long journey. How ever, mine is just beginning this year; yet I have heard this and the people that I heard it from seams to be very happy. I cannot wait! to see what the ends gone to be. Come and take this journey with me if you dare.
