It was strenuous to watch a landscapes changing as we rode by a opposite states and peeped into a lives of a women achievers in any place we stopped at. India has so most to offer, even a lifetime wouldn’t sufficient to try it.”

We knew during a conflict that we were going to accommodate women achievers though it was another covering combined when we interacted with them and got an bargain of because they chose their particular professions. There was a common denominator among them all — service to society. It wasn’t so most individualistic success or energy that gathering these women though in viewpoint of a improved multitude for others like them to live within.”

It was an honour to write stories about women empowerment that will continue to enthuse Indian women.”

Akasa Singh feels sanctified to be means to paint a girl of India, “I also got to be desirous and share my impulse with a universe by a strain we combined on a journey. I faced a lot of fears, we gained a lot of confidence, we learnt a lot of flaws and a few things to adore about myself from these women that we got to spend time on.”
