Speaking at the International Women's Day Conference. My call to action was for everyone to lend their voice in advocating for education of the girl child, particularly in subSaharan Africa where we have the highest number of out-of-school girls. I also emphasized the need for action beyond advocacy. Every little effort counts and we can actually change the world 🌎 ☝️ girl at a time. #iwd2017#scotland#unitedkingdom#uk#beboldforchange
I had the privilege of being invited to speak at the International Women's Day Conference in the U.K. a couple of months ago. The theme of this year's IWD was #Beboldforchange and the title of the Conference was "Inspiring Journeys". I was also inspired by the incredible stories and achievements of the other speakers which included;
Hannah Miley 👉 British Olympic Gold Medalist (Three Olympic Games, including a 4th place finish in the 400m Individual Medley in Rio, along with multiple medal winning performances at the World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games);
Carron Shankland 👉 British professor in Computing Science at the University of Stirling. (An academic of 23years, Carron was one of twelve women in Computing and Mathematics to receive a Suffrage Science Award, recognising both scientific achievement and ability to inspire others in 2016)
Dr. Jen Warren; and Dr. Fiona Pienaar
This is so far one of great books to use for bio sketches on Deaf individuals. Current #DeafStudies books don’t include many of them in the research. They are important people! This book is by Guilbert Braddock, a Deaf and #deaftalent researcher, and is published by National Fraternal Society of the Deaf as series between 1937-1946 then copyrighted by #Gallaudet College Alumni Association back in 1975. Braddock has detailed the importance of quotes and incidents need to look at. Those individuals named are considered inspiration for the children today. #deafawarenessweek#iwd2017#DeafHistory
Re-posting @kodaheart. I thank for including Azie Taylor Morton (shown here woman at bottom 2nd from left)! Texas School for the Deaf needs to invite her daughter to share amazing stories including Juneteenth celebration and stories about her and her Deaf mother. Contact me how to refer to her as I have been in touch with the daughter who lives in Austin,Texas. “Juneteenth celebration” in Texas is important to be familiar with. Suggest invite her during the Black Deaf History (Black History) month by plan it now. #iwd2017#deafawarenessweek#blackdeafhistory#juneteenth#DeafHistory

Astonishing View of Radha Rani Temple, Barsana
View in full screen mode
Barsana is located about 50 kms to the north-west of Mathura.
Barsana is the place where Radharani spent her childhood and early adulthood with her friends and family.
The Radharani temple is made in reverence of Goddess Radha.
The temple is situated at the top of a hill and one has to climb more than 100 stairs to reach the main premises of the temple. For those who cannot climb there are palanquin (palki) services as well.
The temple is inundated with disciples during auspicious occasions.
The temple has a fort kind of feeling because of various minarets and domes here and there. The architecture of temple is a balanced blend of North India, South India, and modern and contemporary architecture style.
The main temple premise has a big prayer hall where the devotees sit and chant songs praising Radha Rani.
The walls of the hall are adorned with pictorial representations of teaching from ancient Hindu scriptures. For the benefit of devotees these teachings are written in both Sanskri English.
The temple dome is made of white and blue granite and has some gold detailing too.
The pillars and ceilings of the temple are beautified with images of peacocks and colourful floral patterns.
The hall area of the temple opens in an open area which overlooks the whole Barsana village.
