Passage

Jyoti lived with her mother in a small village. From a young age she had witnessed her mother, a widow, being ill-treated by the villagers. But when she was in high school she began to understand things. She couldn’t take the insults to her mother anymore. She decided to change the way widows were viewed in village society. Jyoti started a “Widow Empowerment Campaign”.

She spoke to village elders and knocked on two hundred doors to spread her message. She learned to organize street plays which she used to make people aware about the plight and pain of widows.

Initially her ideas were not acceptable to the society entrenched in tradition. People pushed her out of their houses and refused to listen to what she had to say.

But she went on relentlessly without faltering. Today, widows are allowed go out of their homes like others. Many, including their mothers are now employed at organizations and literacy centers.
