Beating all odds

Meet Asha Kundera, the sweeper – turned – Deputy Collector (India)

When Asha Kundra was deserted by her husband after five years of marriage, she did no allow the situation control her life. Instead, she set off on a journey to end a force to be reckoned with in a society which treated her with humiliation of being an estranged woman.

She did not shy away from taking up job of a sweeper, to support her two children, parents, and her dreams!
Her dreams came true when she cracked Rajasthani Administration Services exam earlier this month.
