While growing up, I would notice that the women around me would work very hard at home but still weren’t well respected because they were economically dependent. It was since then that I wanted to be financially empowered. I knew I wanted to be a designer when I was 15 — it was just one of those things that was my calling. My mother would teach me how to cook and then think that I was...

"I stand here from about 4 in the evening until 10 at night. Before that, I cook food for my children and help my wife with the household work -- she appreciates the help, but I actually do it to spend time with her!"

“I grew up in a small village of Bihar which was prone to flooding. Most of my childhood memories involve me playing in the mud and swimming in a pond near our house — we all learnt to swim by ourselves. I grew up in a family of wrestlers, so even though I moved to Bombay for my education, I had a strong inclination towards sports. I'm from a humble background — I went to a Municipal...

"I used to work so hard when my son was growing up that I missed his entire childhood...I didn't want to repeat that with my grand daughter so the second she was born -- I retired. Now I spend all day with her... we're on our way to see the birds at the park...she loves them!"

“It was during my 10th standard Board exams that my father passed away — I think that was the hardest and lowest point in my life. My mother was so strong for the both of us that she somehow yanked me out of it and gave me the strength to give my exams and face everything. Losing him at such a young age was hard, but everyday I work towards being better and making my parents proud. I’m so...

“I had been in Bangalore for a few years before I moved back to Bombay. When I got here, I didn’t have as many friends so I downloaded Tinder, hoping to just meet new people. I came across his profile and the first thing I noticed was that he had the lyrics of Smooth Criminal as his bio — I swiped right without really giving it much thought. We matched and started chatting…and the...

"My husband never let me work -- he used to say that a woman belongs at home to serve her man. I was very young when I got married and didn't know better so I stayed at home and took care of the house.
He would come home late at night, mostly drunk and get violent toward me -- again I didn't no better and thought that this would go away but once my daughter was born, it became worse. He...

“7 years ago, there was a period in my life where my stomach constantly felt bloated and when I couldn’t take the discomfort anymore, I went and got my tests done at Bombay Hospital to realise that I had ovarian cancer. I’m unmarried and apart from my uncle who had adopted me, I had no one to comfort me at that point — I felt so alone that there were times when I looked out at the Church from...

"I just asked this lady to not park her car in a particular spot because it would hinder traffic and her car would get towed. Her reaction was that to make a face and say, 'it's so hot, and on top of that you're making me move' and then said a couple more things in English and I just wanted to tell her that, she's sitting comfortably in her car and we stand in this heat for 12 hours at a...

“I work with children with disabilities and my happiest memory was of a young boy named Jonathan. Jonathan was born prematurely weighing just 800 Grams and when he came to us he was very weak, barely able to walk and couldn’t speak at all, but he had a beautiful smile. The only thing Jonathan responded to was music — from a young age he would hum...

“We met at a medical convention around 9 years ago. It’s strange, but we went through very similar accidents — we both sustained injuries to the spinal chord in car accidents that took place on the same street in New Bombay and we were both even traveling in the exact same car…except our accidents took place 3 years apart! That’s actually how we became friends — initially we used to talk...

"What's the most important thing you've understood?"
Only once you let it all go can you board. If you think too much, or let fear take over you, you will fall...but if you just let go, and allow yourself to be free you can keep going....nothing can stop you!"
