“Indha interestingly means a ring which a woman puts on her head, and she carries water pitchers on her head, if you have seen in Haryana villages. The whole idea behind this Indha was, that it is a ring of responsibility and the whole idea of women empowerment is, that the women take lead to take up their responsibility, rather than just living in shadows.” – Captain Indraani Singh
