There’s something very powerful about women who have turned on the light inside themselves. Invariably, they reach out to help others turn on their lights too. And that’s how, woman by woman, the whole world lights up.
Our cover personality Ajaita Shah has literally turned on the lights using solar power, and lit up the lives of thousands of women and their families in Rajasthan and around India (p.22). Her social enterprise develops sustainable products for India’s rural population, while empowering local entrepreneurs and her ‘Solar Sahelis’ in the supply chain.
Mathura girl Pawani Khandelwal’s startup teaches women in small towns to ride two-wheelers so that “they can have wings” (p.64). She also hires these women, and then trains them to go out and teach more women driving, thus sparking off a wave of independence for homemakers.
Acclaimed artist Rouble Nagi is painting the slums of India in the colours of happiness (p.57), and has educated 2.5 lakh underprivileged children along the way. Fashion photographer Richa Maheshwari is teaching the visually challenged to click stunning photos (p.06), and Miss Deaf Asia 2018 Nishtha Dudeja is creating awareness about testing babies for hearing impairment (p.60).
This month, we’re also launching eShe’s personal growth workshops for women, ‘Shine Your Light’. Designed to be intimate and inspiring, the first edition is in Delhi and, Inshallah, we’ll make our way across India in 2019.
There’s something very powerful about women who are lit up. Are you ready to shine?
