On 23 March 2013, Jyotsna Darda lost her battle to cancer. Thousands of women thronged to pay their last respects in Mumbai and thousands more came together in Nagpur—all members of the Sakhi Manch, Darda’s organization to help women by giving them the means and confidence to start small-scale enterprises.

It was while working for the differently-abled in a deprived neighbourhood in Nagpur that Darda saw first-hand how hard and oppressive the lives of women in the lower strata of society could be. Like many people who are faced with a reality different from their own, Darda too could have done her bit for charity and retreated to her privileged life. Instead, she started Sakhi Manch.

In one of the most stimulating profiles, Gunjan Jain discovers what it is, besides simplicity, serenity, humility and willpower that made Darda the icon of women empowerment.
