What is your favourite word?
Empathy. I think everybody should spread empathy in the world. Empathy is the quality of a person that defines who they are.
What was the moment in your life that made you Blossom into the person you are today?
It isn’t one thing. There were a lot of triggers that made me think about the difference I could bring to the table. One of the triggers was what I had experienced as a single mother. Single mothers haven't been given respect in society. They judged my ability to raise a child on my own. Despite being an educated person,
I was often looked down upon at any of my son's school functions. I was also triggered when I discovered urban women tend to keep their domestic problems to themselves. They are highly conscious of society's norms and status. Therefore, they are less likely to admit a problematic home situation than people living in rural areas. We talk about women's empowerment, but never about women's respect. Empowering women means enabling them to achieve whatever they want. We think it's about creating women entrepreneurs or giving them freedom. What about giving them respect? The main turning point was the 2017 Vidhan Sabha elections. Domestic violence, financial illiteracy, and taking advantage of women and their helplessness were common in rural areas.
