Since time immemorial, history showcases how women have been subdued to decisions of others. From practice of sati: when even life, right to life was on whims and jantas of society. Child marriage where women were married off at tender ages of 6-7 and politics was a man's game. Women had been at the receiving end of other's wisdom. The imposition imposed historically can be seen in modern day societies.
The modern day societies which are allied with cancer of patriarchy. A woman is considered "a property of man". In a sleepy town of Kolkata, a girl of 14 was forced to marry someone twice her age. Deprived of her basic rights of education, free will, a dignified life. What followed her marriage was torture, domestic abuse, sexual assaults, became daily rituals for her. But one day she decided - she had ' had it enough '. Selling the only piece of jewelry jewellery she had on her. The girl 'ran' she fled to her freedom.
The place is new, means are less, with no resources at hand. She had one asset she never had - A FREE WILL. With her new found freedom, she began from washing dishes, doing house hold works. Mean while educating herself , getting basic skills and investing. Over time the girl falling and rising but choosing her own path. The girl now a woman, is the head of a million dollar company - Actiogen. She helped plethora of women and is a living inspiration for many. The women is Chanda zaveri - A Woman who set herself free.
