Indian Homemaker: whom many of you have read, and learned from, the courage of conviction and refusal to bow down to injustice. An urban Indian homemaker who passionately writes against gender bias, and biases against girl children; against all stifling stereotypes.
IHM says, “Injustice and cruelty bothers me. I feel there’s always something we can do. When we can do nothing else, we can create awareness.”
Solilo: whose balanced and heartwarming writing has touched so many of us. And incidentally she’s is the gifted artist behind the banner, and the advisor on Art Work. A Management Analyst who believes in taking a stand against hypocrisy, discrimination and injustice and prefers to be opinionated than sitting on the fence.
Solilo says, “Not every woman is as educated and privileged as you and me. Even the smallest voice will make a difference in someone’s life. Let it be your voice.”
Indyeah: the fiery and passionate young learner, who opens our eyes and our sensitivity to so very much of our Heritage, our Memories, and jogs the sense of responsibility we need to discover and work with. A teacher who is proud to be a feminist because she believes that everyone who believes in gender equality is a feminist.
Indyeah says, “If you are wrong, accept it…
If you are right, then refuse to back down….
If your gut instincts said something else and you went against them because everyone else said so then you deserve to be castigated…”
Usha Pisharody: a quixotic rambler she calls herself, led by the need to do what she can, to raise her voice, to hold hands to make the world a safer place, especially for Women and Children. A senior teacher and a poet who is an icon to all, young and old.
Usha says, “The best moments of life are spent in spontaneity, and just being oneself, naked of the ego, and its excess baggage. It is the most difficult thing to do and that is why I savour the natural and love the immediacy and spontaneity of children.”
This is a venture, prompted by an impulse that suddenly took hold of us, and we met in the Indian Woman!
We look forward to your views, perspectives and notions!
