“I’m truly grateful to HT for supporting my work towards women empowerment. I’m a woman and I’m also a woman with disability, and this recognition means a lot to me. With strong will and determination, I overcame my challenges after the bomb blast that almost took my life. This second life that I’m living, my rebirth on May 26, 2002, won’t be wasted over my past, complaining and blaming. Rather, I want to use this life to instill hope in everyone and be a voice that stands up for equality.”

Every time I sing, a life is saved and what can be a bigger blessing than this. 2,305 lives have been saved through my concerts so far and there are still 436 kids in my list waiting to get operated on. Thank you, HT for conferring me with The She Age award! It motivates me to continue walking on the path of serving humanity.”

“I am simply overwhelmed at this recognition... There were many times when I wanted to give up and told myself that nothing would happen, this is India! But I would like to remind everyone that only because this is India, that something does happen and will happen. I hope my story spurs others to not look the other way when things don’t seem right. Thank you, HT for this award and for recognising my attempt at trying to initiate change.”
