नारी ब्लॉग हिंदी ब्लॉग जगत का पहला ब्लॉग था जहां महिला ब्लोगर ही लिखती थी
२००८-२०११ के दौरान ये ब्लॉग एक साझा मंच था महिला ब्लोगर का जो नारी सशक्तिकरण की पक्षधर थी और जो ये मानती थी की नारी अपने आप में पूर्ण हैं . इस मंच पर बहुत से महिला को मैने यानी रचना ने जोड़ा और बहुत सी इसको पढ़ कर खुद जुड़ी . इस पर जितना लिखा गया वो सब आज भी उतना ही सही हैं जितना जब लिखा गया .
१५ अगस्त २०११ से ये ब्लॉग साझा मंच नहीं रहा . पुरानी पोस्ट और कमेन्ट नहीं मिटाये गए हैं और ब्लॉग आर्कईव में पढ़े जा सकते हैं .

"नारी" ब्लॉग

"नारी" ब्लॉग को ब्लॉग जगत की नारियों ने इसलिये शुरू किया ताकि वह नारियाँ जो सक्षम हैं नेट पर लिखने मे वह अपने शब्दों के रास्ते उन बातो पर भी लिखे जो समय समय पर उन्हे तकलीफ देती रहीं हैं । यहाँ कोई रेवोलुशन या आन्दोलन नहीं हो रहा हैं ... यहाँ बात हो रही हैं उन नारियों की जिन्होंने अपने सपनो को पूरा किया हैं किसी ना किसी तरह । कभी लड़ कर , कभी लिख कर , कभी शादी कर के , कभी तलाक ले कर । किसी का भी रास्ता आसन नहीं रहा हैं । उस रास्ते पर मिले अनुभवो को बांटने की कोशिश हैं "नारी " और उस रास्ते पर हुई समस्याओ के नए समाधान खोजने की कोशिश हैं " नारी " । अपनी स्वतंत्रता को जीने की कोशिश , अपनी सम्पूर्णता मे डूबने की कोशिश और अपनी सार्थकता को समझने की कोशिश ।

" नारी जिसने घुटन से अपनी आज़ादी ख़ुद अर्जित की "

हाँ आज ये संख्या बहुत नहीं हैं पर कम भी नहीं हैं । कुछ को मै जानती हूँ कुछ को आप । और आप ख़ुद भी किसी कि प्रेरणा हो सकती । कुछ ऐसा तों जरुर किया हैं आपने भी उसे बाटें । हर वह काम जो आप ने सम्पूर्णता से किया हो और करके अपनी जिन्दगी को जिया हो । जरुरी है जीना जिन्दगी को , काटना नही । और सम्पूर्णता से जीना , वो सम्पूर्णता जो केवल आप अपने आप को दे सकती हैं । जरुरी नहीं हैं की आप कमाती हो , जरुरी नहीं है की आप नियमित लिखती हो । केवल इतना जरुरी हैं की आप जो भी करती हो पूरी सच्चाई से करती हो , खुश हो कर करती हो । हर वो काम जो आप करती हैं आप का काम हैं बस जरुरी इतना हैं की समय पर आप अपने लिये भी समय निकालती हो और जिन्दगी को जीती हो ।
