Mittika "I came here from Calcutta, and I am extremely aware of Delhi not being Calcutta. Delhi, to me, has always remained a place about "whether to be or not to be'. It's as distant to me when i walk its roads as it is close to me when i meet its people and form bonds. Hauz Khas, Majnu ka Tila, Purana Quilla - I really like all these places and monuments in Delhi. But at the end of the day. often, it is me and the Delhi sky."

Mittika Closing this ToT for doctors, trainers and program managers from the government and large civil society organizations in Afghanistan was, for Mittika, the culmination of an intensive project comprising a status report on child sexual abuse in Afghanistan, developing a curriculum and a mapping study towards responding to the issue. It was, for us, a deeply churning experience.Mittika shared Afghanistan National AIDS Control Program's post.09.04.2018 at 04:54 pmLike
Mittika "For me, Delhi has so many metaphorical doors, and every door takes you to a new direction and helps you to reach out your dreams, in terms of education, profession, individual choices.
It's like a chocolate box filled with lots of amazing varieties of chocolates, you just need to pick one that you like.
Delhi has boosted my confidence, it gave me the freedom to fly wherever i want to. it is full of opportunities. I love this city and all its colours."

Mittika "Delhi has given words to my thoughts. It has instilled in me a new kind of confidence. It has given me space to turn my ideas into actions. It was in Delhi that I realised that this world has no place for those who victimize themselves.. Privilege works in a strange way, the one who is privileged has the last word, the ones who know the art of convincing people survive here! If you don't present yourself in a certain fashion, you find it hard to belong to the city."

Mittika "I love Delhi because it is giving me a chance to pursue higher studies. I go to school everyday and enjoy studying with my friends. If I talk about womens' safety, Delhi certainly lacks it. I fear going out in the dark and my parents always get worried if I get late while coming back from classes. Also, I feel Delhi is a city of the rich and for the rich. Influential people get their way through anything very easily whereas people like us have to work hard,struggle and suffer."

Mittika "Roz Najafgarh se Munirka aati hoon kaam karne ko."
Radha Devi irons clothes for a living at a makeshift stall under a staircase in Munirka. Married at the age of 14, she had no clue about working outside in a big city until Delhi happened. Now she earns her sustenance and saves for her family of 5 children and a husband.
"Dilli mein mujhe koi chhoti nazar se nahi dekhta. Mein jo kaam karti hoon uski izzat karte hain yahan. Jaati ko le kar bhi itna dikkat nahi karta koi" she smiles.
