Mittika "Vedi is a travelling musician and storyteller who is based in Delhi, but doesn't call the city her home. Though she has had to face many stresses associated with working as an artist, she has put her heart and soul into mastering her craft, and takes joy in sharing her art with others through workshops and personal projects.

Despite having faced serious challenges, many of the women we spoke to told us about how they lead their lives with optimism and work hard to make sure no one else ever has to go through what they did. Like Vedi, they opened their minds to the lessons that life had to offer them, and used these lessons to give back to their communities. "

Mittika As a woman e-rickshaw driver, Binota has to fight taunts from her community, harrassment from the police and violence from male rickshaw drivers on a daily basis. But, she doesn't care - driving an e-rickshaw has allowed her to support her family better, while working in a job where she doesn't have to answer to anybody.

Like Binota, the women in our stories made a conscious choice to ignore the taunts passed at them by others, and made unconventional decisions that defied social expectations. They prioritised their goals over social norms, and worked tirelessly to reach their full potential.

Mittika Mittika celebrates a groundbreaking victory for queer rights in India as India’s Supreme Court reads down one of the world’s oldest laws criminalizing consensual gay sex, putting to rest a legal battle that stretched for many years and burying one of the most glaring vestiges of India’s colonial past.
