Motivational Story – Apeksha Porwal who always wanted to participate in Miss India competition

For me, Miss India was a childhood dream. It was a dream I saw with my family. We would sit together every year and watch Miss India when it was telecast on TV and I knew that I wanted to be there. When I represented India at Miss Teen International, 2009 in Chicago, I realized what an incredibly proud feeling it was to represent my country. Being Miss India is a true honour, one that stays with you for life.

One morning, I was sitting outside in the compound combing out the children’s hair when I saw a group of 15 workers passing by as if in a trance.

We have worked for two nights and a day without a break, and now we are on our way home.” These words filled me with horror. This was no different than the kind of slavery women faced! Shocked by what she had heard, Anasuya decided that she must do something to change this situation.

In 1914 Anasuya Sarabhai helped Ahmedabad’s weavers successfully organise their first strike for higher wages.
