Walking into tranquil silence of beauty, hustling through the ultimately dreamful ambience , I was bewildered at the warmth spread across every corner of her home. Cutting through social compassion, she proudly turns back at her childhood for brewing her life time learnings and package them to restore for today’s generation.
Born in an orthodox family to diverse parents, she wished for a voice inside her that could take stance for her. She sought after a chance to platform her inner voice. ” Every child must have the luxury to”, she says. A child is moulded by the stages of his life and influence of dutiful values. Facing criticism due to the social pressure of being a girl in the first place, she also enjoyed constant disappearance of individualism as a child. She translated ugly, good and uncertain words into a life of substance and provided an inclusive land of dreams for her family as a woman. Hailing from a patriarchal society which polices the physical characteristics of a person , she even walked pass the times when she resisted love from finding its real place as a kid for long. This led to a close partnership with her mom who was also her best friend. Geetha garu laughs, ” although my dad needs me for every little thing today”.
“Motherhood is like an art and art can be pushed not tamed”, while mentioning her son as her most priceless ornament……!
Geetha garu is currently working as a visual arts teacher and acted in films like Fida and Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi. Began her career in the advertisement field, she rises above the decisions made for her. Eight years of lag in the technology industry outdated her relevance to continue where she left in her career. Time for self reflection occurred to her as a young mother whose soul was on fire to find her place again and again from what ever was thrown at her. This internally changed her role as parent towards a brilliant horizon. She converted bundles of conspiring opportunities into a new start as an art teacher. ” Every mother can use motherhood as qualification to find her place in times of disruptive paradigm”. she strongly expressed adding that ” every child is born for the society “. She has authored a book called ‘Destiny’s Child’ on her parenting chapters.
Emotional temperament is a pavilion of lock outs. Precisely respect your heart’s desire because the habit of self love is underrated as it can tell you when to leave a place where you don’t belong to. The world ultimately loves the person who loves oneself.
She amplifies the need for every individual independent of gender to participate in creating a Home that promotes friendship, innovation and teamwork in order to celebrate and grow with each other. Being a woman is challenging she says explaining me how she faced the most draining situations in her life due to the stigma attached to a woman who lost her husband. Habit is the most hardest thing to let go which can create a major influence on one’s life. She truly believes in the power of women supporting each other for a sustainably progressive world. Willing to collaborate for contributing her services in areas of ‘ Widow Empowerment ‘ that is surrounded by rottening stigma which suppresses the potential of a woman due to the absence of her other half. Every woman who has to go through the experience of loosing her life partner needs the whole society to emotionally insure her instead of producing new doubts at her capacity to make an impact.
When asked about defining Gender she said it does not exist, Democracy as your right, Mother as a creator and Time as patience. Leaving me to nurture in her wonderful conversation, she brought light and broke stereotypes. Her work aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 4 of Quality Education. Impact Scientist is looking forward to associating with her in maximising the impact for women.
