As a young girl, Kaushalya was very active. She used to play hockey. It taught her that cohesion plays a decisive role in team building. Though time flew pretty fast, some lessons stay with you forever.
So, when Kaushalya came to know about how spinning gives women a chance to earn at their doorstep, she called a community meeting. Kaushalya motivated her fellow women to work and earn their living so that they could contribute to their family and earn respect.
The charkha is now becoming the basis of economic independence of rural women in Rajasthan. It is refreshing to see the confidence in their work, and a strong sense of community and empowerment being built among the spinner-artisans.
