BSF extension in Pb should be stopped immediately

 Adani and Ambani should not enter the farmings 

: 20th November 2021: (Kartika Singh//Punjab Screen)::

The First National Convention of Punjab women Collective began with a  one minute silence to women Martyrs at the Borders in Farmers Struggle.  More than  500 Women from all over Punjab  partipcipated in the Convention

Key Note Speaker Vandana Shiva , congratulating the Farmers Struggle said that  this is beginning of our victory , we cannot rest. Our real enemies are not Adani or  Ambani but Monsanto , Rockfeller , Amazon and her is why ? The liberalisation of the seeds industry and the arrival of the gene giant Monsanto, has resulted in frequent crop failures, huge expenses for pesticides and high level of debts for the farmersWe cannot afford the Monsanto technology for India as most of the farmers will be wiped out. The seed exchanges among farmers has been a topic of discussion in the government but the government has been hijacked by corporations, Globally, the world's top 10 seed companies control one-third of the 23-billion-dollar commercial seed trade and account for 44 percent of sales.

What does digital agriculture entail? For starters, it entails the introduction of a digital surveillance system. So far, Shiva’s organization has managed to prevent Gates from introducing a seed surveillance startup, where farmers would not be allowed to grow seeds unless approved by Gates surveillance system.

The data mining, Shiva says, is needed because they don’t actually know agriculture. This is why Gates finances the policing of farmers. He needs to mine their data to learn how farming is actually done. This knowledge is then repackaged and sold back to the farmers. It’s evil genius at its finest.

Through his funding, Gates now also controls the world’s seed supply, and his financing of gene editing research has undercut biosafety laws across the world. As explained by Shiva, the only country that doesn’t have biosafety laws is the U.S. “The rest of the world does because we have a treaty called the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety,” she says.

“While he created the appearance of philanthropy, what he’s doing is giving tiny bits of money to very vital institutions. But with those bits of money, they attract government money, which was running those institutions. Now, because of his clout, he is taking control of the agenda of these institutions. In the meantime, he’s pushing patenting, be it on drugs, vaccines or on seeds.”

Taken together, Gates ends up wielding enormous control over global agriculture and food production, and there’s virtually no evidence to suggest he has good intentions.

Navsharan Kaur, feminist researcher said the   the PM could npot see the women on broders even in is address did not acknowledge the presencae and particpation fo womwn, From  Kitchen to Fields to the borders women have been fighting been invisible for media and our PM Modi . Women  had ton fight for decades for a domestic violence at ,,, its the responsibility of state to protect women. If women want to work there is no safe workplace or safe transport , we fought .. and got sexual harassment at workplace act. Referring to Anti CAA protoest she said there too women led and here too women made the difference to the whole movement .

Punjab has 30 %  of dalit population and there is caste it ahs not disappeared we need to acknowledge and fight it together

 Dr shiva said , 'Today, when survival is at stake, when the claws of fascism, neo-capitalism and neo-colonization are spreading all across, there is a need to go beyond our ideological differences. Aa new ideologyhas emereged from farmers movement that persisitent , peacefuld emands will move the state.

Giving another example she said Within the movement, we formed a Mahila Suraksha committee to ensure the security of women protestors. Also, to strengthen women participation in the movement and enlighten it with a feminist perspective.

In 2013, there were riots between the Jats and Muslims in Muzaffarnagar, but today if you look at the delhi  border -all of them are together in this struggle for dignity. The slogan, ‘Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Isai aapas mein hai behen bhai’ has actually come alive. A new political forum like Jan Sansad has come into existence which challenges the valuelessness and undemocratic practices in electoral politics.

The movement with this unprecedented strength can be compared to the freedom movement that could drive away the British imperial forces. We just need to keep that flame alive. As long as the flame lives, even in the heart of a few, the movement will continue to thrive.

The niece of Shaheed Bhagat Singh. Gurjit Kaur  congratualting punjab Women collective said this is agood beginning of all women coming together now  this should actually roll over nationally, Punjab women being an example for the nation

Dr Kanwaljit Dhillion  convenor Punajb Women Collective  concluded by announcing  the demands of the  the Convention

1-  The BSF extension in Punjab should be stopped immediately

2.  Adani and Ambani should not enter the farmings because the farming belongs to farmers not to corporates.

3- The farmer laws should be taken back in the upcoming winter parliamentss ession till then , the farmers will not leave delhi borders.

Medical command Soldier reflects

 Observing Women’s History Month 

By Russell Toof (Regional Health Command Europe)

March 17, 2021

Col. Claudia Peterson is currently serving as the Chief of Readiness and Reserve Affairs for Regional Health Command Europe.

SEMBACH, Germany -- Each March, the U.S. Army celebrates the important contributions of women to the nation, both historically and in today’s society.

According to the U.S. Army, about 18% of the total Army is female and all positions in the Army are open to women.

Col. Claudia Peterson, who commissioned as a Nurse Corps Officer, is currently serving as the Chief of Readiness and Reserve Affairs for Regional Health Command Europe.

“I work closely with Army Medicine and the U.S. Army Reserve to fill critical medical staffing vacancies which directly impact our ability to provide world class healthcare delivery to our communities,” said Peterson. “I am also responsible for leading and providing oversight medical readiness support for RHCE throughout U.S. Army Europe and Africa.”

Peterson was raised in a military family and her desire to serve came from her experiences growing up as a military child.

“My father served in the Air Force for 24 years,” she said. “I have uncles on both my maternal and paternal sides of the family which have served in the Air Force, Army, and Navy.”

Around 80% of Soldiers come from families where at least one other member has served.

Peterson was commissioned into the Army in 2002 after receiving a Master of Science in Nursing as an Adult Nurse Practitioner. Since then, she has served in a variety of clinical and leadership roles.

“Opportunities for different career experiences along with career progression is one of the main reasons I chose to join the U.S. Army Nurse Corps.”

Her path to nursing really started at birth.

“Born weighing only two pounds, I spent the first two months of my life in Wright Patterson Air Force Base Hospital,” she said. “Growing up hearing my parents praise the nurses, providers, and medics for the outstanding care I received, inspired my choice to pursue a career of service where I can make an impact on people’s lives in a positive way.”

The 2021 Women’s History Month theme is “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced.” This theme honors the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights for women and for the women who continue to fight for the voting rights of others. Women have played vital roles in the Army since the Revolutionary War.

“During my time in the Army, women’s roles have continued to change,” said Peterson. “We saw Gen. (retired) Ann Dunwoody as the first woman to achieve the rank of four-star general in 2008. We also saw Lt. Gen. (retired) Patricia Horoho become the first female Surgeon General of the U.S. Army in 2011. That was followed by the first African American Surgeon General of the Army in 2016, Lt. Gen. (retired) Nadja West.”

Another recent accomplishment was that in 2019, Maj. Gen. Laura Yeager became the commander of the National Guard's 40th Infantry Division. She is the first woman to command a United States Army infantry division.

“We still have ground to cover in ensuring that leadership reflects the diverse and rich experience of the people who make up our Army Corps, inclusive of gender, race, orientation or cultural heritage,” said Peterson. “We have many ‘firsts’ to be proud of but lasting change comes when others follow in the footsteps of those that paved the way and diverse points of view are recognized for the valuable contributions they bring.”

As Peterson approaches 19 years of service, she offered her advice to young women just starting their career in the military.

“Set high goals and make a plan on how to achieve them,” she said. “Pursue your education. Surround yourself with people who support you on a personal and professional level. Don’t allow any setbacks or anything you consider a failure to limit you, but rather, view them as valuable lessons to help you reach the success you aspire to achieve. The Army provides so many opportunities, so pursue a career that you are passionate about. There is nothing you can’t do if you set your mind to it. Be proud and know that the career you chose will have an impact on others, just like those amazing servicemen and women who impacted mine.”

When I heard my inner call for arts

  I surrendered to my creative side as a painter 

: 16th January 2021: (Kartika Singh//The Women Screen)::

As a self-taught artist, my journey began with a keen interest in artworks by the great masters  blended strokes to add a dreamy perception and richness to my paintings. 

Years after leaving college and living as a house wife, I surrendered to my creative side and restarted as a painter. I quickly discovered that I was happiest and most fulfilled when I was painting.  

A born nature-lover, I chose to settle with a theme of floral paintings. My love for gardening enhanced my passion for this theme. It seemed like a natural process. I feel emotionally overwhelmed, excited, totally inspired and glad to paint florals. Loving what you do really does make your life grand! 

Sometimes, I also paint serene woman and mostly combine these woman with the flowers to create a joyful view. 

I work in oil on canvas, using 4 to 6 layers of thin colors with blended strokes to add a dreamy perception and richness to my paintings. I use small details and contrasts of light and dark as tools for making magic, bringing the onlooker to a peaceful state. Memories and photographs taken during my various journeys are a wonderful source of inspiration as well. 

My goal as a painter is to bring the overwhelming beauty of the nature from the outside, into our living space. I make a humble effort to immortalize the beauty of nature on my canvas. I want my paintings to create an aura of positive, soothing vibes around the surrounding space so that they become powerful enough to heal and nurture anyone emotionally, spiritually and psychologically, in the most natural way.


Oil on canvas The story- Many a times, we wish for something ,just without any reason or rhythm. This girl, serenely sitting on steps with wall art behind her just thinks - what if the flowers from the wall come out or the butterflies start clicking
 And lo!! A beautiful butterfly comes from nowhere 
& starts charming her! 
The manifestation of her wish brings a smile on her face. 
 I hope my art brings a smile on everyone’s face
