Starting today, I will feature one woman who touches peoples lives. These are women who work hard to earn their living, whether its selling their craft, dancing on the streets to eke out a living, sweeping the roads or working as domestic help. There are hundreds and thousands of such women in India, who go unsung, unnoticed and may times un-cared for too. The next time you see a woman toiling on the streets, cleaning your home or working in the fields, give her a big smile and see how she reciprocates!
