    The Ex-Files: Vandana Shah #54

    Today, Vandana Shah is amongst the top divorce lawyers in India. The story of how she got there is unique. Vandana was in an abusive marriage and only got out of it because her in-laws pushed her out of the house one night. With only 10 dollars in her account, Vandana rebuilt her life taking every opportunity that came her way.







    When she found that she was running around in circles as a litigant, because of her limited understanding of the law, she decided to study law. She chose to document her journey as a litigant in a book to help others who may be in similar circumstances. The book, The Ex-Files: The Story of my Divorce is a best-seller and currently part of the judicial college syllabus.







    Vandana shares her story of triumphing over adversity while keeping a positive outlook towards life and inspiring other victims of domestic abuse find the courage to rebuild their lives.

    The Modern Desi: Bhavna Kalra #53

    Bhavna has a career in IT, but her passion lies in connecting people through food. She's the author of the blog, Just a Girl from Aamchi Mumbai which featured in the top twenty blogs in Perth.







    Her most recent venture, The Modern Desi, a culinary experience represents both, the girl holding on to her culture and roots in India and the newer her as she embraces and grows in a different culture in Australia.







    Bhavna's birth-home, India and home of choice, Australia are different at various levels. Yet, both societies have strikingly similar views towards those choosing to be childfree. It is barely understood. Bhavna hopes that by sharing her story of wanting to be childfree, more people can see it for what it is, a choice.

    Inkahaani: Suzanna Varghese #52

    Inkahaani: Suzanna Varghese #52

    Suzanna grew up surrounded by nature and by all things natural in Munnar, India. When she moved to the city, she quickly adapted to the city life of access and "use and throw" mentality. All that changed when Suzanna's daughter was born. She wants her daughter to grow in a world that is not being crushed under the burden of consumption. And so, Suzanna became conscious of the everyday choices she made. She found this shift in her way of living was not easy, cheap or accessible.







    We consume and never question where anything is coming from or where it's going. Suzanna hopes to change that way of thinking by sharing the story of the product, where it came from, who made it and why it may be the right fit for you through her eco-conscious store Inkahaani.
