Women have always been the nurturers of creation; the world has acknowledged her presence and contribution towards human race. Despite being one of the strongest creatures, the stereotype that sets her back still exists. Today we present to you the story of 3 students, who are living their extraordinary life, breaking the constraints that have held women back since time immemorial.
Payal Singh, a young lady who dreamed of becoming a diva one day was enchanted by an automotive wonder- a supercar at a tender age of 13. The roaring beast casted a strong everlasting spell on her which became her passion. She molded her future and crafted this automotive wonder in her life. She completed her B.E in mechanical engineering from Modern College,Pune and today is working with an Automotive content company. Education does not perceive any gender; she says “I am not sure why people perceive this passion to be based on gender. While I agree, I would have chosen the Lego kit over a Barbie doll, and these early exposures probably make a lasting impression (including the one by the supercar in my case.)”
The four years of education made her realize a mantra that she will remember the rest of her life, Knowledge is never served in a silver spoon; you have to struggle to achieve your desires which will always pave way for your success. To protect her interest she dove into her academy and extra-curricular and emerged as a winner.
Bending rules was the only way to prove that she was meant to be what she is today, the story of KomalPatil, a young girl who wanted to become an engineer and worked hard to get what she always deserved proves the patience and endurance of a women.Summarizing her journey towards her dreams she says, “From 11th standard I started preparing for entrance exams to get a good college I opted for VJTI, Electrical as it is one of the best colleges in Maharashtra. The experience in VJTI has been really good so far. We get to learn a lot of things other than academics. I don't feel there is any discrimination. We spoke to our seniors. All of them are placed in good companies. The entire placement procedure is same for girls and boys. The company’s focus is only on your knowledge and logical thinking, etc.”
Apurva Gandhi, a simple yet talented young women who is pursuing her B.Tech in planning from COEP Pune is standing up to what she believes, in making our country a better place for our citizens to live in. She has participated in prestigious activities like making development plans for towns like Gangapur, Khuldabad and Lonan. She was also involved in a project involving redevelopment of Asia’s Biggest red light area Kamathipura in Mumbai, while interning with Tata Institute of Social Sciences as a part of her course curriculum. In her own words she puts forth her ideas to us,
“In my course of education, I had the opportunity to work on various transformation and planning projects in Pune City and I’m certain that if the Pune Municipal Corporation collaborates with our discipline, we will be able to help Pune a better planned city.”
Today we witness many women taking up the so called unusual paths in their life and bringing us on the brink of a revolution that will change the perspective of the traditional mindsets that have been governing our society since ages.
Let us cherish this spirit and encourage our women to bring upon us a new world.
