Wearing multiple hats simultaneously, Bhavisha’s story has truly inspired many of us. Friends, sharing with you few words by our storyteller@storyofsouls.com for Bhavisha. Read on –

Views of our storyteller

 “If we haven’t done any selfless acts, we should plant a tree or sapling; that would be truly selfless deed, benefiting others and ourselves.”

This story is very close to my soul as it is so empowering. I believe that Bhavisha ma’am has played her role quite well as a proud mother, wife, and social entrepreneur. Something that clicks my mind is her words, “Work should not be gendered.” She and her husband give total freedom to their boys to choose whatever they want to explore.

 “When we think of the health of the future generation and their empowerment, it is important to count the environment as an integral part of it too. If they learn how to protect their environment, it will make them empowered.”
