Scribbling of the Day : Homeless Birds

Bird's home

A new Villa, a new dawn
His day started
with a lemon tea
and the fragrance of the mist.

There came a guest
He felt the poet in him
“Do you have a home?”
he inquired within.

“Look!” gestured
his guest flapped the wings
and began flying high to show
it’s little home – Earth!

His Villa
shrunk little as a hut.

Welcome : Soibal Dasgupta : Official Artist of Voice of Little Hearts

Soibal

We, Propel Steps welcome Soibal Dasgupta, who is our official ‪#‎artist‬ for our book Voice of Little Hearts. We wanted to add something little more that texts to communicate the message, obviously Soibal’s art will speak the emotions behind the words of the children.

Join us welcoming him and do extend your wishes to him

About Soibal :

We must say that he is an energetic youth with a lot of thought process going on in his mind about the betterment of society. He was ‘a facebook acquaintance’ but just in a short time he has become a part of our team. Thanks to his arts which attracted us like a magnet of emotions.

Soibal travelled across the subcontinent and got chances to observe the lives of people closely. He draws moments from the lives of people who are often ignored. After shifting from Kolkatta to Delhi, he found everyone liking his sketches and eventually found out that he could use his art as a way to bridge the social gap among the people.

We are delighted to have Soibal as a part of our team Voice of Little Hearts.

How you can be a part of Voice of Little Hearts?

Coming Soon… “Blank Space : Filled with Inspiration”

It was just a dream… “A book of 100 inspirational stories penned by 100 people.” Many thought just another start but doubted the possibility for making it real. But now it is REAL. 🙂

We had nothing but silence as an answer. Now the journey of Propel Steps begins with the first step of the big journey ahead aiming to bring realistic social changes by enabling the youth via education irrespective of their economic and rural/urban differences.

A concrete and powerful kickstart, this would not have happened without you all 100 Incredible People who support us with patience and perseverance always. Especially some very special people who gave way for a few others, with so much understanding and smiles.

Final Cover BS(small)It has become a reality specially because of Pankaj HaramwarPreethi Venugopal, Barun Bajracharya, Karthikeyan Chandra Srinivasan , Balaji RajagopalanKarthikeyan Selvam, and Nijam Deen.

The list is so long if we mention all by name, we are concerned not to miss someone, hence we kept the list short. We have stories to share about everyone who helped us to make the book better. We will share those beautiful moments when we introduce the Authors.

Soon we will come up with 3 projects simultaneously following the release of Blank Space. (tentatively in the first two weeks of Jan 2015)

We need you support for making this project successful. Pre-orders beginning soon… 🙂

Story : 47°C

47 Degrees Celsius

47°C, heat literally sucked away his energy. 1Km distance seemed like a marathon, when he reached the hotel for lunch.

A fresher, a small company, an unknown city, a rude boss and all the donkey works with no choice were the cursing ingredients of his life.

“Meals? 60 Rupees! No money? Then get out” the man at the billing table shouted at an old lady.

He looked at his purse – exactly 60 rupees and some coins.

He bought a meal token and gave to her. She reluctantly accepted.

He smiled and continued walking, the ATM was just three kilometers away.
