I sit by a beautiful reading nook on one of my trips and observe the hottest summer ever experienced. I compare my past and present summer. I watch a woman hold her pallu over her son while setting up the vegetable cart.
And I realize woman empowerment, women’s role in the society, isn’t something that tops our conversation topics.

It’s only a matter of time before someone brings change, and the not-so-trendy topic will change into a trendy topic!

Reading Rising 30 Women Who Changed India during one of my recent staycation!

Speaking of change, Kiran Manral has initiated to talk about the woman who didn’t just talk about the change but brought the change.

This book is about thirty fabulous women personalities from different fields. The book is very well researched and helps readers peek into the lives of the leaders acing their work.

I like this book for three reasons – storytelling in the best way, a narration that feels like a motivational speech, and lessons to be learned from the amazing women!

The book motivates you to learn and grow. The language is lucid, and there are tons of ideologies I would love to acquire from these powerful women.
