Doctors have found a new trick to get rid of your tummy. All you need to do is to keep your legs wide open and push your tummy down. It might pain for a couple of minutes, but after that your tummy will be gone.

“Hope” is a beautiful word, which when heard uplifts the mood of broken hearts. Likewise Milaap’s “The Hope Project”, collaboration with ASSET India Foundation, inspires people like you and me towards empowering rural women through small contributions. What makes it more special is that the women involved in this case are ex-Devadasis, rescued from trafficking, and empowering them through entrepreneurship, is certainly a ray of hope for them!

And did you read the word Devadasis? Do they still prevail in India? If this is your question, read more…

Devadasi system is an ancient system in India, in which, young girls are married to Temple Goddess; a life full of service to God, but the system was abused by the rich and they forced these girls into “Temple Prostitutes”, which is illegal, but still exists in certain small towns of India. It continues to force the women who attempt to escape and denies them to lead a normal life. It is a brutal cycle into which future generations are drawn as well.

Watch this video showcasing Mahananda's life: This woman's resilience will move you to tears.

Wipe out your tears, they don’t need it. Help them instead and it can be done through Milaap, an online platform that connects and enables individuals around the world to make a microloan to a specific poor individual or community in India. Since the contribution is a loan, rather than a donation, the same amount of money helps different people at different times. And trust me, all your contribution goes directly to the end beneficiary with 100% transparency.

And this is how it works: Choose a Borrower | Make a Loan | Get Repaid | Relend your credits

There are 15 different projects covered under The Hope Project and from them I chose “Muttavva Belanki and Group” and “Sattevva Taikar and Group” to help them to complete their loan.

Muttavva's life is a heart wrenching tale of a woman who was forced into Devadasi system that stole her childhood and youth. This 47-year-old skilled artisan tailor, from a small village in the Belgaum district of Karnataka, is the proprietor of a flourishing tailoring business that brings in Rs.12,000 a month, pays for her 3 children to go to school, and secures a safe childhood for them. Her friends Shakuntala and Renuka, both middle-aged single mothers, have similarly battled the Devadasi system, starting their own small scale agriculture businesses that keep their families out of poverty and their children in school. All these 3 women now need a loan of Rs.58,000, ($928.00), repayable in 2 years, to buy the raw materials that are needed to expand their businesses. This loan will help them increase their turnover, which in turn will help them independently meet the financial hurdles in daily life, expenses of higher education for their children, and medical expenses that will set in as they age.

Sattevva Taikar is a 50 year old single mother of a single child, from Ghataprabha in the Belgaum district of Karnataka, who is a victim of Devadasi system. She is now striving to live the independent and dignified life that she so truly deserves. She wants to offer her child a more comfortable and secure future by increasing her income. She can achieve this by expanding her existing goat rearing business. Her friends, Saraswathi and Sharavva, who have been through a similar past, are budding entrepreneurs, with small-scale buffalo rearing and brick manufacturing businesses respectively. Having come so far in their pursuit of freedom and social acceptance, all these 3 women needs a little push to firmly establish themselves as competitive entrepreneurs in their region. A loan amount of Rs. 60000 ($960.00), repayable in 18 months, is sufficient to give them a push to realize their objectives. This would help them to secure a good education for their children and for medical expenses that will set in as they age.

And again tears or touching comments on this post will not help them. Trust them, lend them as little as Rs. 500 ($25) and help them stand on their feet. For those who live in foreign countries, lending (not a donation) $100 or $200 is not a big deal, as we people spend more than that for a good winter jacket? So please lend them and make them win in their life. Get Involved Now... color their life!

Sarav is the contributing author of two books: Uff Ye Emotions 2 & Kaleidoscope. A romantic poet, an active blogger and a photographer. www.iamsarav.com
Introduction

I'm Saravana Kumar Murugan (Sarav) working as a Senior Software Engineer at Wipro Technologies. In four years and four months of IT life, I worked at a customer site in London, UK for a year and currently I am working at a customer site in Hamburg, Germany.

My area of work has been primarily focused in the field of Application Re-Packaging and Image Engineering. I have also worked on Application Compatibility Testing, Application Discovery Consultancy, Deployment, Application Virtualization and a bit of development using C#. I have experience in various tools used in Windows 7 Migrations like SCCM, Wise Package Studio, InstallShield, ThinApp, VBScript, ORCA, RegMon, FileMon, PitcureTaker, InstallRite, Dependency Walker, VMware, SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio.

Wipro Technologies has recognised my work two times: Best Campus Joinee in 2010 and with a Technology Innovation Wipro Spark Award in 2011.

Apart from being an IT Professional, I am just another soul trying to figure out what life is. I am a creative writer at Few Miles, where I dig in my hands at writing poems and short stories. I write under a pen name 'Someone is Special' as my pen name is a sweet dedication to dream angel (in dreams). Writing is my passion and I am born in this world to express my dreams, I do so as poems and prose. I do prefer poetry as it helps me to rhyme what I love to, and attain peace.

My short story, 'The Last Date’ is published in the book Kaleidoscope: An eclectic collection of twenty-five amazing stories, this anthology owes its origin to an international short story competition organised by Springtide.

My short story, '120 Minutes' is published in the book Uff Ye Emotions 2: India's most loved story book. A collection of eleven award winning short stories :) 

My short story, 'Ithalgal' is published in the book Seasons of Love: a collection of twenty award winning short stories :) I am currently working on my first novel, which I'm hoping publishing before this year end.

I feel Someone Is Always Special For Something !
