Murphy. R. John : Agent of Change
As a college student, Murphy and his friends would engage underprivileged children in after school activities like art, crafts, sports and writing. This later became his calling as he started his NGO which also doubled up as a shelter for these kids. He along with his students has weathered many a storm, but he hasn’t lost his spirit in bettering and empowering needy children and making them believe that they can really be who or what they want to be.
His life is a lesson on how one can be the change they want to be, even with limited resources. Watch the episode here
Vandana Singh : Voice of Vulnerabilities
Vandana Singh had to literally pick up the pieces of her
life, after her abusive husband threw her belongings on the street. She decided then that disrespect was not to be tolerated and it marked a turning point in her life. She divorced her husband, and moved in with her parents. She felt a subtle change in their behaviour, where she felt invisible when certain decisions had to be taken, and she decided to move out on her own.
She found love again, a perfect soulmate who respected her, only to see him ghost her when she mentioned marriage and commitment. She walked out of the relationship with her head held high, as she realised that disrespect however cordial and gently done was not something she would tolerate. She is now single, doing well in her career, and lives a happy, content life.
The biggest takeaway from today’s talk was Vandana’s sincerity, honesty, and bravery in confronting her vulnerability and sharing it with the world. She has emerged a stronger person, without changing her innocent and honest core. Watch her story

"It all started after a spiritual experience I had last year (Feb 22). Little did I know that what began as an idea will move into a discussion with my partner Adi, and slowly within a year we will cover diverse and hard-hitting topics with 25 speakers!
And, we're just about getting started. We are now a medium to the hundreds of silent voices waiting to be heard and committed to bringing them out.
VoS is now something bigger than us, and that needs its due commitment, hard work, and respect and we are happy and willing to do this with even more dedication now." - Kanika Kush
