The story of a romantic mind trapped in a disobedient body
Synopsis Laila Kapoor is a spunky, talented 19-year-old girl from a close knit middle-class Delhi family. She was born with cerebral palsy. Her speech is garbled and she sits in a wheelchair. Laila is very close to her mother, Shubhangini Damle. As a result of her efforts Laila goes to college in the prestigious Delhi University. And when Laila’s heart is broken, it is her mother who enables her to continue her education at New York University. Here Laila meets the feisty Khanum - a visually impaired woman. And the chilled out Jared. Always curious about sexuality, Laila undergoes a journey that is beyond her wildest dreams. She calls it "wonderful but scary". She confronts her mother with her new truths about herself causing a huge conflict that rips them apart. Suddenly her world falls apart when her mother collapses in pain. Laila

Join the League of Women Voters of Teaneck

It was April 1952 in Teaneck. A small group of women, determined to “make a difference in government,” formed the League of Women Voters in Teaneck. We are now celebrating our sixty-third anniversary as a nonpartisan organization. The mission is to encourage the informed and active participation of citizens in government. Members, men and women, look back to sixty years and more of active involvement and advocacy in Teaneck.

Many things have changed since these early days, when few of us worked outside the home. Today, most members combine jobs, family, and volunteer work. As the organization has grown and adapted to the changing role of women in our society, we have continued to work to “make a difference in government’ through its involvement in public policy issues.

Look at our history and membership  brochure below and consider joining us to "make a difference"..
