From My Heart... Vol. No. 54 July 2019 The Foundation Newsletter M My dear Daughters friends and Well Wishers We are now suddenly in the middle of this year. It was only recently that all of you sent me New Year Greetings. How time fies Soon we will be adding the 9 th batch of our Lila Juniors. 200 plus little girls will join the family. We will also soon take the 9 th batch of girls to UK at ASHA CENTER for a 3 week training program of wholesome leadership development. What is interesting and making history is that out of the 24 girls that will leave in mid-August 7 girls are from Wardha and Amravati and 2 girls from our school program 2Morrow2gather who have been with us for 8 years since their 7 th standard. This is the frst time ever this is happening. We are looking forward to see how this experiment works. All these girls will soon undergo extensive training programs to familiarise them with British culture climate food and their etiquettes and discipline. More you will read about this in the next issue of Inspira when they will return and share their varied experiences with all of you. Here is a surprise for all my readers. Normally I share more about what is in the newsletter and some information about new developments and also giving you some suggestions on how to move ahead in your professional life. But from this issue onwards I am changing my script and take you along my personal experiences after graduation as a Mechanical Engineer way back in 1967. I started my career as an apprentice in Ruston and Hornsby. I got this job even before my results. We had no campus placements but had to make direct applications. This Company was in hard core engineering manufacturing diesel engines coupled with marine propellers and also with generator sets primarily for defence. I was determined to work on the shop foor and thus very excited when I got this job. My stipend was Rs. 250. I used to travel from Poolgate to contd. on page 2... Chinchwad in a bus every day 6 days a week. I never took any leave. I used to write my weekly reports of all that I did and all that I learned without fail and submit to my manager. It was so r e w a r din g as it made me recall and record all that I had absorbed that week. The engine specifcations and design including all quality parameters were coming from Ruston and Hornsby Manchester UK. My frst manager under whom I worked was DAD. He was quality assurance manager and I as an apprentice was made to report to him. I worked in different departments connected with manufacturing like machine shop assembly line quality department testing section packing section warehouse management and of course tool room. I did get a chance to spend some time also in drawing and design offce. Those days we did not have computers we used to do design of design boards with a Tee and we had log tables and slide ruler for doing the calculations. Of all the departments I found machine shop the most exciting. Here I had the opportunity to operate various machines like lathes drilling grinding gear cutting milling and honing. The best I liked was to operate multi drilling machine. I also very much enjoyed assembling an engine. I did this together with all the workmen. Not for a moment did I fell different from them nor did they treat me any differently. The most important thing I learned besides the technical aspects of an engineering company was time management and the

2 importance of quality and team working. Without these 3 qualities it was impossible to manufacture and deliver any customer order as per the agreements. This frst job laid the foundation for me to know more about how a factory works what are the important aspects of running an effcient factory the importance of proper planning of materials production planning how an engine is assembled the importance of quality painting to give the product external glamour how much important it is to pack the product well so that there are no transit damages and of course the importance of tool designing for effcient and cost effective manufacturing. Till today these learning have remained with me and have given me confdence and an eye for quality not only of products but also of life. Read more in the next issue. Until then good luck and enjoy the onset of soon to arrive monsoons. Good luck and God Bless Mom to all LILAS Friend to all readers From My Heart... contd. from page 1...

3 “Being of service to others is what brings true happiness to oneself” So much to learn from this beautiful line. It has all started with a spark to do something for our society but had no idea from where. Our girl Harshada Dhumke LG-2012 is working on her own project Firti Shala moving school. She completed engineering in Electronics and Telecommunication from Marathwada Mitra Mandal’s College of Engineering Currently she is working in L T Infotech Hinjewadi as Software Engineering. One of her friend came up with an idea of “Firati shala” initiative and then their team started executing it in the slum areas. From there her journey begins with this family. Their contribution for children in slum areas would be in terms of education and personality development. Initial phase was too hard to stand out and fght for the betterment of the children living in the slums. They have crossed lot of obstacles since then to till now. For few days classes were conducted under the tree or in the shade of Ganpati Mandal and yet there is no fxed classroom for them. Nevertheless we have got many more things now from all aspects. Support from local community is a big achievement for us now. From 5-6 students now we have three classrooms of almost more than 50 students. Every time we try to bring out their willingness to learn new things by taking activities games competitions etc. Some programs like Cleanliness campaign Diwali stall Tree plantation Vegetable market stall Making Ganpati idol Educational gudhi a fag essay and drawing competition Sessions on Digital world Technology and human and lot more. They are such precious gems sometimes I think about the imagination power of them and it is too good what is to be done to make them shine brighter it to give them a platform to brighten their potential. Every Sunday we spend two hours on sessions and then after we gather for a meeting to know the loopholes and positive things about the day. We are happy to announce that we took admission for nine students from Pardhi Vasti who don’t even know the school practice and also the environment from where they belong is unimaginable for normal people like us. Because the wavelength is a major issue and casteism is highly rooted in their thoughts. It is too hard to work in this area due to unfavorable support but these challenges making ourselves stronger than ever. Our third classroom is individually for students belong to Pardhi Caste. We need to put more than extra efforts to handle and bind them altogether. Recently we have inaugurated Pustak pedhi a small book library and we have more than 200 books. Also to walk with the digital era we have bought projector. We have invited on Vidyavani Radio show to know about our initiative. As we need to develop their interest in education mostly we use learn with fun techniques. Our volunteers are putting so much of efforts. Some of them are working some are studying. Still they fnd and give their precious time for making the students stronger on their own feet. This enthusiasm to work for them taking us on next level high. We don’t have any strong backbone who will help us economically but for sure we knew our strong will to do the best for our society make it happen one day that each and every child from the slum area shine in their own path.

4 Rita Shetiya LF-2005 and PA-2010 Supriya Satwekar LF-2010 Chitra Sadanandan LG-2013 and Rashmi Sure LG-2013 feel fortunate for getting the opportunity to reach their dream peak by trek with Bucketlist adventure group. It is the Mount Everest of Maharashtra with the height of 1646 meters or 5400 feet is famous as the highest peaks. Kalsubai Mountain lies in the Sahyadri mountain ranges falling under Kalsubai Harishchandragad wildlife sanctuary. It commands a beautiful view. Kalsubai trek is profuse with natural beauty. Climbing the Kalsubai Peak under the stars and moonlight add to the thrilling experience of night trek. If you happened to be there during the monsoon it is going to be double delight Our Lively Lila Rita Shetiya is expressing her lively experience. It was 26th January 2019 so they decided to start night journey on 25th January 2019 with group of 16 people 11girls and 5 boys all from different backgrounds and places. In these trek the girls showed the power of woman. Such treks purely check the patience to climb. The sound of fowing water and wind felt happiness of making correct decision to climb this peak. Atmosphere was foggy as we were heading towards top. As we headed up we witnessed more amazing views. Different shades of sky were the most fascinating and eye catching thing. While capturing this view in eyes I felt Trek makes you more alert while putting every footstep making us more confdent. This is the only place where one can talk to himself and no one is a competitor. It’s just you who have to achieve to reach the destination. The only thing that comes out is simply caring giving and sharing. Every one try to give support help and confdence to achieve the destination. Trek teaches us “If you take every problem as a challenge then nothing is impossible in the world.” Hosting our fag on the top is always proud feeling. While returning back we met our real heroes Vinod Rawat founder of “Convoy control club” specially challenge people which formed in 2010 with the single person and today they have 7 chapters in India. Vinod Rawat has passed the message “Don’t give excuse that you can’t just give your best and 100 percent believe in you.” We are so lucky and proud to host our fag with the real heroes/ strong souls during Kalsubai trek. We should be part of trekking and any sports. It always motivates you to do something different in your life. Trek teaches us no matter how much trouble comes in your life stand frm Fight it and don’t give up at the end you achieve your destination. Go and get lost in the magnanimity of Kalsubai. If you want to give relief of yourself from stress if you want to refresh your mind then once in a month do trekking its gives you peace and harmony. - Rita M. Shetiya LF- 2005 PA- 2011 Lively Lilas Kalsubai Peak Trek with the height of 1646 meters Bucketlist adventure group Rita Supriya Chita and Rashmi

5 Health Capsule ACNE AND TIPS TO MANAGE IT We all girls face the problem of acne at certain age. Our own sister Dr. Shradhanjali Tendulkar LF- 2011 focuses light on our problem. She is working as a Senior Medical Offcer at Nyay Murt Ranade Memorial Homeopathic Hospital NMRMH Pune. She has completed MD in homeopathic Material Media and MBA in healthcare services. Acne is one of the commonest conditions affecting all the age groups both genders predominantly teenagers. It is supposedly the 8 th commonest ailment worldwide affecting around 633 million people globally. It is a skin condition caused to clogging of the hair follicles with dead skin cell and sebum oil secreted by the oil glands present in the layer of skin. This clogging of hair follicles show up in the skin in form of bumps of various types like blackheads whiteheads comedon’s pimples which are pustular or at time non pustular. Common areas where acne is noted are face chest and back. Clinically acne are graded from mild I to severe IV depending on the severity. Most of us adapt wrong ways to tackle it unknowingly giving way to dark spots scars recurrence of acne and infection. Due to cosmetic reasons acne has led to increase level of anxiety amongst youth and reduced level of self-esteem and in extreme cases lead to depression and suicidal thoughts. Causation of acne is again multifactorial in nature which are as follows: 1. Strong genetic predisposition 2. Hormonal imbalance 3. Improper diet and sleep is linked with acne 4. Increased level of stress 5. Infection 6. Environmental factors like air pollution How to deal with this • In case of strong genetic history of acne that means it is hereditary and runs in family such case should seek a long term treatment and requires a holistic treatment and they can choose Homoeopathy Ayurveda or Naturopathy. • For other causes we can follow few tips mentioned below which would be very benefcial and to a great extent avoid active medical help. • Acne might also worsen during a particular phase of growing-up namely adolescence and puberty. Hormonal imbalance during this time is quite common hence teenagers should be mentally prepared to deal with this with other physical changes they go through. • Adequate rest and sound sleep of 7-8 hours is very essential to reduce the level of stress and thus the sebum secretion. • Physical activity of 30-45 minutes in any form is required to help reduce the mounted stress. You can choose any sport dance or hit the gym or do Yoga but move. • Water intake is vital. Stay hydrated with adequate amount of water and choose water based fruits which will not only keep you hydration but also rich in nutrients like oranges lemons melons etc. • Control over the food you eat is also essential eating in moderation will help a long way however avoid oily food direct carbohydrates like refned four sugar and sugar based candies jams chocolates. Integrate good amount of proteins like curds buttermilk cheese soya and eggs fbre rich food like salads whole grained cereals and pulses to keep your digestion good. Not to forget our nuts which give all the essential oils and vitamin E. • The extreme weather conditions and Air pollutants have a bad impact on skin health covering your skin with scarf has become a mandate today. • Regularly scrubbing massaging and clean ups are good ways to show your love to your skin. • Right attitude and positive outlook is highly essential to deal with any problem so be in your good spirits always. If above tips do not work for you despite following it religiously then seek medical help. Conventional treatment for acne includes topical applications known as retinoid therapy oral antibiotics. Hormonal therapy in case of underlying hormonal imbalance needs to be corrected. Physical treatments are available which are costly which include use of laser chemical peels and cortisteroidal based injections. In few cases combination therapy is used. We can also choose alternative therapies which includes medicines from AYUSH system i.e. Ayurveda Unani Homoeopathy and Siddha all of them claim to be free from adverse health effects. As the old wise saying goes ‘A healthy skin is mirror of overall wellnesses - Dr. Shradhanjali Tendulkar LF- 2011 Grade IV Severe Acne showing infamed nodules pustules and scarring of skin Grade I Mild Acne showing few pustules and comedones

21 Man ki Baat Ms. Vaishali Bhagwat country’s frst technology lawyer has been living an exemplary life flled with hope and confdence. She is a living example of how women are growing in various felds and making an impact in this competitive world. Ms. Vaishali comes with prior working experience in the feld of IT and then ventured in to IT law by doing specializations from premier institutes. Primarily working in the areas such as: Civil Criminal Employment Family and Banking law she also laid special emphasis on IT E-commerce and cyber security Data Protection and Privacy IPR in cyberspace and Cyber Crimes. While she is reaching new heights in her profession deep down inside she always wants to contribute towards the empowerment of women. Ms. Vaishali joined the board of Lila Poonawalla Foundation as a Trustee in 2016 and since then she has been working relentlessly. Editor – Inspira Rashmi Tare and Asst. Editor Pranali Tirkhunde got an opportunity to interact with her. When asked about the beginning of her journey with LPF Ms. Vaishali says “As a women we can relate to certain things as a subject. We want to give back to the society as much as we can. I come from a family which believes in community service. My mother MSW at Tata Institute has worked extensively in founding Institutes. I have also been associated with Nirmalatai Purandare who runs an initiative in rural India which is about training women for taking up jobs as anganwadi teachers. Working with such institutes and people Lila and I met at Women’s Day function at Sandvik. We spoke about our experiences and challenges we faced in our lives. We shared common trait of overcoming the challenges and moving ahead in our respective careers. Having known each other Lila provided an opportunity for me to be associated with the foundation introduced me to the kind of activities and causes the foundation supports. I was more than happy to be a part of the foundation as it is all about girl’s education literacy and certain things about which I have been passionate. Therefore I thought that LPF would be a good opportunity for me. This is how the association began”. Ms. Vaishali impressed with the LPF says “Lila has a corporate background and she runs the organization very professionally. This is the strength of LPF. There is a Set-up there is a Framework there is a policy guideline and everyone knows the vision and mission. Lila has an amazing skill of getting people together and getting the work done from them. That is what I think is the organization’s strength. At LPF we have multiple people doing their bit for a common goal and all believe in the vision. Lila and Firoz are the actual driving forces and due to this we can work together in harmony. While many NGOs face the consistency in handling operations LPF has excelled and always has been on right track to support its vision and mission”. Ms. Vaishali says that LPF also serves as a catalyst for her own growth and overall development. Along with contributing for a cause she has also grown to be a better and more confdent person. When she sits through the interview process and gets to interact with the girls from challenging backgrounds she feels very rejuvenated and recharged by their confdence and happiness. She says “These girls have taught me there is a certain way in which you can look at life irrespective of the challenges that life throws at you. If you believe in yourself you can achieve whatever you want. This just re-enforces when I sit with them during the interview process”. This is what drives her to contribute towards the Foundation as much as possible. She also conducts various training and grooming sessions for the girls at LPF. Being a Trustee Ms. Vaishali feels that all the Board members think very holistically. The discussions are very open and everyone contributes. Lila and Firoz are very open to suggestions during the discussions. The teamwork which happens at LPF is something in the best interest and really followed in spirit. Besides this all the trustees are so passionate about the cause that LPF supports That each one tries to do something that is over and above the legal expectations from them. Lila Mam’s energy throughout the Interview process is commendable. She has given a valuable message to the girls: “There has to be a sense of gratitude and always be associated with the foundation and assist its operations relentlessly. Everyone must appreciate the platform provided by the foundation that aides in one’s growth both personally and professionally. There are certain ways in which you could contribute to the foundation and carry the torch ahead. Even if each one of you are able to touch the life of at least one girl that will be a big contribution. This feeling of giving back to the foundation must come from within and not be enforced. Besides this on a personal front you should always be able to adapt to change and keep an eye on where you are going in terms of your career. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and achieve an all-rounded personality.” Pranali Tirkhunde LG-2013 and Rashmi Tare LF-2012 and PA-2016 Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confdence. – Helen Keller

Purva being an ambitious girl always worked hard and gave her best.

She applied for it and cracked the interview. She says becoming a part of the LPF was one of the best things of her life. Unlike all the other organizations LPF did not provide only fnancial support but instead was like a family. She says that the kind gesture and the care that LPF takes of all its girls is what it makes a family rather than just an organization. Be it a Birthday Gift and Card from LILA Mom the immense love and care from Dad Mom and all the Didis is what makes the bond special. She smiles saying “Lila Mom and Firoz Dad although being so busy are always there to help us in times of our diffculties. Inspite of their various meetings and tight schedule they are just a phone call away from us girls and that is what makes us feel so special”. The workshops like interviewing skills presentation skills Microsoft excel etc. gave her the confdence and helped her to become industry ready. The one year mentorship program in Amdocs made her aware of the industry requirements ethics and etiquettes. She says the techniques taught in programs like Time Management proved very helpful to her in day to day life to make the best use of time and manage academics as well as co- curricular and extra-curricular activities. The workshops not only guided her regarding industry but also helped to educate regarding self-defence techniques health nutrition etc. Purva says “LPF helped me go learn grow and develop myself completely by all means”. Throughout her engineering she always maintained good academic records 9.11/10. Her projects won prizes in BITS Goa Project Competition and also Tech Mahindra Hackathon. She did a training internship in CDAC Pune. She also worked as a Summer Intern in Siemens PLM Software Industry and later got a job offer there. She was actively involved in various activities.

She also Path Finders organized the 1 day Student Track of IEEE R10 SYWL Congress 2018 in Bali Indonesia. She was invited as a Speaker in the IEEE Bombay Section Congress 2019 as well as IEEE Pune Section STEP Program 2018. Apart from it she was part of TEDx committee of her college and also works as a writer for visually challenged students. Purva believes that in today’s competitive world having good scores is not enough. Apart from that having good communication skills leadership and management skills makes a difference and hence Lila Mom Firoz Dad and the entire LPF family strives to make all the girls ready for today’s competitive world. She considers Lila Mom as her role model. She says it was only because of the support of her parents and the LPF family that she has learned to dream big work hard and has developed as a confdent individual today. She will never forget the role of LPF in moulding her and in the future wishes to be in a position of helping some other girls through the LPF family. Purva Ekatpure LG-2015 P ragati Prabhakarrao Meghe LG-2015 from Wardha lives in a family of 5 members. Her father is a farmer and her mother helps him. Pragati has completed her schooling from Marathi medium school which was far away from her home. But her father always dreamt for higher education for his children. For better education the family shifted to another town where her father was caught in an accident on the road which affected a serious injury to the brain but no one helped them and she decided to study properly and gained “I can do it Nothing is Impossible” confdence in her. It was a life time lesson and a learning experience for her she thinks. Her mother has studied till 10 th standard with no career knowledge but she has knowledge about how to live life with adjustments says Pragati. Pragati gets energy and confdence from her mother. During those crucial days the family land was handled by her grandfather but that supply was insuffcient for her family. As a part some of the land was sold to pay for house in Deoli town where they were living. After father’s accident she wanted to be doctor but due to insuffcient fnance she opted for B.Sc. nursing course. During 2 nd year she came to know about LPF from her senior and decided to apply for the scholarship. Meantime to overcome the fnancial problem her father borrowed the money from neighbors and friend. After rigorous process of selection she came to know about her selection for LPF scholarship. It was very satisfying experience for her which made her more confdent and happy. LPF is not only fnancial back bone but also it’s making her successful in both the felds such like life and education. Pragati says “I have learned from Lila

The words fall short when it comes to express her feelings towards Lila Mom and Firoz dad. Now she is going to appear either for UPSC examination or M.Sc. in Psychiatric and also wants to work in a foundation.

Sabah belongs to a family where every day father runs auto rickshaw day and night. Mother who constantly recites phrases of holy Quran to bring values between her daughters. The three siblings were born as daughters but grew like proud son. She says “I am someone who’s never able to answer the question ‘What do you want to be when you grow up’ the problem wasn’t that I didn’t had any interest but it’s that I had too many”.

Finally she entered her bachelor where she selected Pharmacy as a next step to explore. It was that time when Sabah and father had only ten thousand in hands for taking admission.

She takes this opportunity to show her love and respect for the place which is continuously working on girls and bringing them to such a platform wherein they create their own identity in life.
