William Ross in one of his masterpieces entitles – What rules the world? The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world! Mothers rule the world. No living being could compare to the sacrifices they make. Such a gem of a woman and mother is Radhika, from Bangalore who had to give up on her corporate job to take care of her newborn.
But as they say, situations can never beat up a person who won’t give up. Radhika was always a fighter who never learned to quit no matter how hard things went for her. She never stopped.
Radhika’s Journey to Independence
She had an interest in tailoring which got fueled when she discovered an ad for the ffreedom app on youtube. She decided to download the application and dig deeper into the courses offered. She had a machine already due to her interest in sewing clothes. The tailoring course became a shield for her at that certain time of her life.
She polished her skills in measurement techniques, several sorts of necklines, stitching necklines without a can, cutting clothes, and more for Kurti, pajamas, dresses, designer gowns, and lehenga blouses.
Radhika launched her business, she started a home-based business in just one month that generating roughly 4,000 rupees. She started by making garments for her friends and family. Later, she became quite well-known in the area for her distinctive approach to clothing design, which improved the outcomes of her work.
Diversification was her Key
Radhika’s main line of work was tailoring, although she did not rely on any one ship for her income. Along with chicken farming, she also engaged in sheep and goat farming after checking out the respective courses, which brought in a respectable amount of money on its own.
Radhika’s story had a significant impact on others, particularly on women who gave up their jobs to be better mothers or because of other obligations. She provided a role model for anyone who wants to be independent but is constrained by their circumstances.
As the saying goes “Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain” and Radhika learned every bit of it. Now it’s your turn.
The eternal value of mothers and their significant contribution to raising the next generation endures despite the many problems we confront in our ever-changing world.
