The ShaikhSpear Himachal Diary 2016: A Woman of Steel

Majhot, Himachal Pradesh, India, 10 September 2016, 7:20 am


Meet Vidya Sharma, also known as Mela Ram Aunty. I had heard a lot about Mela Ram Aunty’s schedules during a typical day on the farm. And on coming here, I’ve gotten the opportunity to actually see her at work, getting up early, tending to the cows, going to the fields, getting grass for the cows, grazing the cows, and so on and so forth… 

And watching her coming in with the grass on her back in the pouring rain makes me respect her all the more… What a woman to know and be around. Salute!
