Super Women ~ Book Review



Super Women - a title which required no publicity to make me read. I received the book from the author herself. And what a fine day to present my review to you all. Happy International Women’s Day to all the women out there.

Super Women by Prachi Garg is a collection of inspiring and refreshing tales of 20 young women who stood up, pushed hard and walked proud by proving their mettle both as homemakers and entrepreneurs. 

I loved the cover page. It is simple and apt. It depicts the crux of the book where a lady can excel at both the personal and the social fronts of life. It perfectly complements the title.

'What is civilization? I answer, the power of good women', says Waldo Emersen. This signifies what a good woman can offer to the universe as a whole to make it a better place. As we look to build a better world for ourselves and the future generation, the role played by women in our midst is extremely crucial.

Nowadays, women are excelling in diverse field along with their home management skill. Still, how many of us have explored the entrepreneur side of ourselves. We are great homemakers and that does not mean that we should be stereotyped. Prachi breaks this notion by weaving the stories of 20 young women entrepreneurs of India who have journeyed through challenges at the age of 20-30 and come out with flying colors in pursuing their dreams.

Prachi Garg is an entrepreneur herself, a traveler and a writer. She started www.ghoomophiro.com, an enterprise where the team organizes corporate tours based on the customer's’ requirements, budget and provide them with a bouquet of options. And her initiative of compiling this book is to be appreciated as it will lift the spirits of many women in India.

Each story in this book is appealing that the inherent nature of being a leader in a women will definitely get provoked. The ventures are innovative encompassing a varied range of services in social to retail/ e-tail to educational to sustainability genres - from supporting acid attack victims, to providing free skin care solutions; from online retail of lingerie to handmade bags and fashion accessories; from pet care products to quirky merchandise. These ladies have opened up avenues formerly unexplored.

One of the women entrepreneur mentioned was Ria Sharma founder of the NGO, Make Love Not Scars. While I was reading Ria's story, I was happy to see the name of Haseena. She is my cousin Sarah's friend. Sarah told a lot about her. Since I have heard about Haseena and her story and how she helps others, I understood what Ria meant when she said she only has been helped rather than she helping others. Ria's story talked about how she felt when she first met the acid attack survivors and it showed her vulnerability and the challenges she met at the beginning but afterwards how she was open to change.

In this book, every women portrayed as an individual and not as some hero kind. Perhaps that's why, it is so relatable. Their stories are inspiring but not preachy. And I liked the tone of the book. I reflected on all the awesome moments of leadership I read and I am instantly filled with insights on a better way to think, say or do things. This is the true power of women - which expands the ability of our community multi folds. How much more wonderful will our environment be when we give women the center stage as often as men occupy it!

Super Women gives us insights on how these young successful entrepreneurs crossed their hurdles and succeed in their life. It is a must read for those who aspires to become an entrepreneur.

On this momentous day, on our collective behalf, A big Thank You to all the Women!! Let's infect the world more with our unique spirit and being. Thank you for being here and please take initiative to lead us to a brighter future because you are who you are, the way are.

Truly, a brighter future will be built together with women.

Grab this book in Amazon.in.
