Be the change you wish to see in this world .

What's the point of being like millions of others on this planet ? Lead the change by your example. I love the idea of taking risks and trying new things. Challenges make life interesting and I have been challenging myself to grow for the past 5 years .

A mechanical engineer by profession , I chose to be a part of this industry because apparently I was told I am too sissy for it. I feel proud to have proved them all wrong.  And now I lead this change with my example. I am a feminist because I believe in the idea of equality.  After having taken complete responsibility of my life without keeping dependence on anyone , I learnt both sides of gender inequality. Scenario needs to be changed and I lead this change with Lean In India. The only way I express myself is by writing. I have a little too many stories and words to shout out to the world. I had never thought I would get published but then I did !
