Cheering for ‘HER’
On Mentza last week, Shekhar Kapur spoke about the ‘fear of being stuck in the ordinary’. When it comes to ‘HER’ I guess, we have so much inspiration all around, that there is really no cause for such fear. Last week on Mentza we were so fortunate to hear so many inspiring ‘HER’ stories. Sample some of them here.
Aspire for Her
The fantastic founder of Aspire for Her – Madhura Dasgupta Sinha and her wonderful team Reema Sen, Ruchita Tandon, Dipika Singh, Jayita, Yashasvi & Sneha were all on Mentza through the last week bringing inspiring stories from their work in the community. Listen to them and I am sure we will all have the urge to contribute to this noble mission in our own unique ways.
