Acid Attack Fighter Laxmi’s story on Mums and stories

This is a story that surely needs to be read, liked and commented for positive feedback. An inspiration to millions who get engulfed in worries which may seem tiny, when you read how Laxmi has faced problems in life.

A true fighter, A lovely mum to Pihu.

And watch out for beautiful stories on motherhood on Mums and stories on Facebook.

Mums and stories is proud to share this incredible story of being a mum by Acid Attack fighter Laxmi. Laxmi is also the lead campaigner with Stop Acid Attacks.


A global face, Laxmi speaks on her prized gift in life, her daughter-Pihu.

“Pihu is seven months old and somehow, just before two days before she came to this world, I started feeling that I should name my baby Pihu. I was almost into depression due to personal tragedies in the family. I had overcome the attack and am a fighter. But tragedies in my family were happening, where few of my close ones including my father and my younger brother died in recent years.

Life seemed to come to a stand still. I was in a stage of numbness but then things changed when I got to know I was pregnant and the amount of joy Pihu has given me and Alok is immense.

Pihu was born on March 25th 2015 in New Delhi and at that time, my mother, Alok and my best friend too was there with me. When well wishers got to know that evening that Pihu had arrived in this world, they started visiting us all through the night. It was tiring but amazing too.

We celebrate her birthday every month. And since then every month, Pihu charms us with a new skill she has learnt.

Pihu has made me a mother. There are certain things I missed in my childhood and that I am trying to provide for Pihu. Yet I would say that I am not going out of my way to give her a special upbringing. She is going to be raised in a normal atmosphere. There is lot of travelling regarding my work and she is coping with it in the current scenario.

I have always felt that if we think negative, then the negative emotion surrounds you so much that it is going to be difficult to come out of it. Even the world is not going to be considerate. That’s what happened to me too. When I was thinking negative, I was left alone. But when I chose to fight back the world was with me. Today the adulation that I am receiving because of Pihu is not new. I have received this warmth, love and wishes from people when I decided to fight back too and not remain confined at home. But I must add that the feeling of receiving positive vibes from people, because of Pihu is something I will treasure in life.

I am not sure but we might change her name too. And every moment with her is enjoyable. She keeps me awake throughout the night and she wants to play all the time. I have not thought what I would like her to be when she grows up and that stage is many years away. Right now I am enjoying being a mum to Pihu.”

Laxmi is now 26 years of age and was attacked in the gruesome incident when she was just 15 years old. Last year, Laxmi among the several awards she has received was awarded the prestigious award, ‘International Women of Courage Award’ by US First Lady, Michelle Obama at an awards ceremony in Washington.

Mums and stories wishes on behalf of all the mums Laxmi a beautiful motherhood to be cherished. We know Pihu is lucky to have Laxmi as her mum.

Once upon a time a writer was a Radio Jockey



I came to know a month ago of term know as multipotentialites through a you tube video featured on Tedx talks. This was by Emilie Wapnik. It was refreshing for me to listen to the talk and I could identify myself with what she tried to convey.

Somehow I have always dabbled in various professions and one of them happened to be getting to the shoes of being a Radio Jockey. I loved being there and doing what I was doing. AIR FM Rainbow gave all the recognition to me as one of the well known RJ’s.

In all its limitation of not able to compete with private stations of having a edit technological tool before playing live radio or hosting from different venues or reaching out to Bollywood or Kannada film stars, yet FM Rainbow had its loyal audience.

I had hosted careers’ shows, baking shows with an expert, interviewing Bangalore icons and much more.  Yet it had become the case of a filled glass and not wanting to dive more


So I had to say goodbye to one of my best loved jobs/careers and embraced a new juncture in personal life. This further led me to a totally new career and as of now continuing with some parts of the phase. Though I like to identify myself as a blogger these days than anything else.

Stumbled upon this photograph where I used to literally travel 18 kms from my home to the AIR station at 5.30 in the morning to be on time at 7.00 am. Along with the Kannada RJ, we had to present our shows and the show finally culminated in a request show. Of course now the formats have completely changed and further too I had started doing the afternoon shows where it was a pleasure hosting Meethi Yaadein of old hindi numbers and the 4pm show of playing the latest Hindi film numbers as part of the request shows.

If any of the old listeners still remember me then it would be lovely to receive a hello message from you.

Blogger’s party by women’s web & Jean-Claude Biguine

Yesterday it was a meet, an invitation for a few bloggers in Bangalore to catch up, have a bit of pampering done at an upmarket salon . I am just glad that blogging in the women’s world is getting recognized with some fun element.

Unlike earlier where only fashion bloggers or technology ones were recognized; thankfully now there are so many niche segments in the blogging world that it’s hard to ignore true bloggers. Can say that happy to be in this space right now.

It was good fun having a brief interaction with author Milan Vohra, the dilemma to blog or write a book to connect with the audience and more. I was present too at the meet and was happy that blogging is serious business.

The meet was organised by content provider women’s web in association with the french salon brand.
