The term Women Empowerment is used widely nowadays. And this special term has been getting a variety of definitions with every passing of generation. But what is actually Women Empowerment in its truest sense?
Women Empowerment is the process of empowering women. It is about accepting Women who are on the outside of the decision making process. Empowerment creates power in individuals over their own lives, society and in the community they live in. Women are empowered if they have an access to opportunities without any kind of limitations or restrictions on them.
No matter how many theories we come up with, about Women Empowerment, it’s only the true stories that will make the difference in the society and encourage women.
Today’s story is about a Guwahati based woman, Mrs Bindiya Agarwalla, a mother of two, a wife and a regular home maker who proves that there is no right time or age to start your own business. Mrs Bindiya Agarwalla is now the owner of first exclusive Tupperware store in Assam.
As a child, Mrs Bindiya grew up around the green lushes of Khumtai Tea estate in Golaghat, Assam. She had a normal childhood growing up in the Tea estate. She got married just like any regular girl in Indian society. One of the thing that worked best in her married life was that she travelled a lot as her husband is a government serviceman who had to transfer from place to place for work purposes. This made her understand the consumer needs of daily life in and around Assam. Mrs Agarwalla, in the first part of her married life focused more on the upbringing of her children and had no intention of starting anything of her own. As years passed, and her children grew up to be adults, Mrs Agarwalla finally wanted to live her dream of starting something of her own after her years of service towards family as a typical Indian Woman.
Consulting about her wants to her family and with their constant support, Mrs Bindiya Agarwalla finally came across Tupperware who wanted to open their retail outlet in Guwahati. This grabbed the interest of Mrs Agarwalla as Tupperware is a brand she has been knowing closely about and their products in the market. As a homemaker, Tupperware has been a brand that won her trust in the long run. Plus the handling of its products was best known to her. This made her keen to learn and know more about Tupperware and eventually the idea materialised. Finally, Mrs Bindiya Agarwalla came up with the first exclusive Tupperware store in Assam of her own.
What can be more inspiring than the story of Mrs Bindiya Agarwalla in such a special occasion as Women’s Day at the doors! Let’s be a bit more supportive towards women. Let’s give the chance to the homemakers of our home, a chance to live as who she is, a chance to live for themselves.
Kudos to Mrs. Agarwalla and her family. We wish them great luck on this new venture. Godspeed.
