Times of India reports on the work done by my colleagues at Ammachi labs in Doctor Khera, a village near Lucknow, who train local women in toilet construction and sanitation. Our approach stands out in comparison to other government and NGO led efforts which focus on building and donating toilets to rural communities, often with little community engagement, resulting in the toilets being left unused and even if used, being found in poor condition with little maintenance. We at Ammachi labs ensure that the local populace get trained in a trade that would earn them an income, in addition to having the whole community investing itself in the creation and maintenance of better sanitation facilities. Our approach to transforming vulnerable communities through skill training has even been lauded by the United Nations as being a shining beacon for the entire world.

It is only a matter of time before our Universe goes black, cold and dies. Must this be the end of the road for life?

Hypatia of Alexandria's story is an inspiration and warning to all of us... of the dangers of tolerating intolerant ideologies.
An avowed paganist in a time of religious strife, Hypatia was also one of the first women to study math, astronomy and philosophy

If 'Princess Mononoke' and 'Spirited Away' had a baby with 'Nausicaä,' it might look like Gwenn Germain's 'Girls and Guys from Summits and Skies.'
