Meet Our GEMS: Devasena E.S.

A Drop in the Ocean
by Meera Srikant

Devasena ES (Deva) is a media freelancer. She worked as a Human Resources Management professional before she kick-started a career in media. She has been an RJ since 2003 and continues to host a daily show in a popular radio channel. She is also a voice-over artiste and a sub-titling professional. Deva is creating a sound cloud piece for the Prajnya 16-day campaign to create awareness about gender violence. She shares with us her views on gender violence and her reasons for being a part of this campaign.

Why is this issue important to you?
More than it being important to me, I think the issue is very important and we have to do our bit - even if that is a small drop in the ocean.

What is it you feel most strongly about?
I think it is very important to create awareness at every level. That's probably the key to arriving at most solutions.

Tell us about your activity for Prajnya campaign and what you hope to do with it?
In association with Prajnya, I hope to create audio clips that will hopefully be knowledge sharing tools.

Three things you would suggest to keep these individual actions going.
Most of us, including me, underestimate the difference one person can make. More than enlisting a series of activities, I would like to say - if there is something very small we can do, with our awareness, and remain consistent about that one thing at least - we'll be making a difference. For instance, if we decide to never employ a child (girl or boy) at home, that will make a difference.
