And Mijwan needs you…
Shirin’s father wants to protect her from the big bad world out there, and get her married so that she can be in the safety of her sasural. But what does Shirin want?
“Main aage badhna chahti hoon… padhna chahti hoon. Shaadi toh karni hai, lekin shaadi main tab hi karoongi jab mujhe job mil jaayegi,” she declares.
During her short visit to Mijwan, Shabana Azmi took Mijwan Village to a Storm by completing various activties which will benefit Mijwan Girls, Children and villagers in near future. These are:
1. The District Adminstration organised a one day medical camp on 8th August 2016 at the request of Shabana Azmi for all villagers with special emphasis on girls health and mother and child care.
2. A Healthy Baby Competition was also held to encourage parents to understand parameters of healthy - nutrition, weight, immunisation etc. Shabana Azmi gave away the prizes. She also emphasised that health is a right but must also be a responsibility. That simple measures like washing hands with soap frequently, boiling water before drinking, including 4 colours in food - white, yellow, green, red in meals and most importantly timely immunisation will go a long way in ensuring good health.
Mijwan, a hamlet in eastern Uttar Pradesh, is constantly demolishing old mindsets and reinventing itself with fashion, both as a source of income and as a course for the future. The intricate Chikankaari work is the epicenter of this change. Designing for names like Manish Malhotra and Anita Dongre, the women of Mijwan make their debut in the world of art by working on their very first installation that will be exhibited at the T2 international terminal of the Mumbai airport -NDTV (Click to watch the Video)
