Inspirational Woman Of My Life – #TheWomanIAm

Being ambitious is constantly something worth being thankful for.
Except when you’re a woman!

In our current reality where sex-oriented jobs are constantly in transition and in one that increasingly understands gender and biological sex as two unmistakable domains, I often find myself pondering about the idea of womanhood. What does it take to be a lady? We no longer comprehend what it means to be a woman through a set of physical attributes or character characteristics, nor fixed cultural jobs. But if being a woman is not determined by these dimensions, some other component that is shared by all ladies?

Growing up, while we’re instructed to concentrate on scholastic, get into a decent school and in the long run, make our example at work, somehow, when women grow up, the rules automatically change. Instead of focusing on work, they’re relied upon to get hitched and center on running their home. Although men are urged to follow their fantasies and pursue achievement!

As a general public, we’re all blameworthy of victimizing ladies who’ve decided to trudge it out busy working. From calling them ‘childish’ for following their fantasies to offering misogynist comments each time they get advancement, we’ve ensured that breaking the glass stays a far off dream. However, women have ladies have over and over proved regardless of how extreme the excursion, they’re fit for arriving at their goal. Yet, the way to progress for ladies stays one with a lot of pointless barriers.
Thankfully, not all ladies decide to surrender to society’s weight and let go of what they had always wanted. But even for those women, life isn’t all smooth and straightforward!

Inspirational Woman of My life

Such is the story of Ms. Ajit Satnam Kaur, where a lady demonstrates her self-esteem against the cultural standards. Ms. Satnam Kaur is a successful Punjabi writer based out of London. She is basically from India, born in Agra, Uttar Pradesh (a state in India). Her pen name consists of two parts – Ajit and Satnam Kaur, where Ajit is her father’s name. Ms. Satnam expresses her gratitude to her father for educating her so well, by using his name before hers. This broke the wheel of the stereotype outlook that no one but sons could carry their father’s name.inspirational woman satnam ajit kaur
During her childhood, there were no Punjabi schools in Agra and very few Gurdwara which taught Punjabi. She learned Punjabi during summer vacations when her mom took her to Punjab. She wrote her first Hindi poem in class eighth. Ms.Satnam says that whatever she learned back in her childhood has helped her to achieve her dreams and make her what she is presently. She got married in Punjab and moved to London. There she realized that in the middle of the developing culture of English. Somewhere the Indians have overlooked the values and importance of their mother tongue. Then she thought to promote her mother tongue and took help from an organization.

Journey of Change Maker

After working 15 hours a day, she used to write, even at night. She started writing poems in Hindi and afterward in Punjabi. She started a campaign named “विदेशा विच रुल दी माँ-बोली” to promote love for mother-tongues in literary events. Under the direction of Mr. Shivcharan Jaggi Kussa, She began writing Punjabi stories, Articles, Film reviews and Poems which are published in 11 newspapers of 9 nations. Seebo and Kudattan are two Punjabi movies whose storyline has been derived from her poems. She likewise has her own production house named ASK MOTION PICTURES.  From writing poems to short stories and then to movies-reviews and film-scripts, she has covered every aspect of women’s struggle as her subjects.

What we can learn from Ms.Satnam’s story is, wherever we are, whatever may be the differences, we should let nothing prevent us from accomplishing our dreams and follow our passion. Ms.Satnam has consistently believed that Art is a God’s gift, and we should never let that art die inside. Do what you love, follow your heart, you never know you could be like Ms. Satnam and inspire several others.

Perhaps our lived experience as women is what in the end defines womanhood. This seems in line with the goals of feminism. To improve our lives and the lives of others by freeing ourselves and each other from sexism. We continue to face new challenges and push new boundaries in the world of gender equality. All the while our ideas of womanhood are flowing previously thoughtless -of directions. Whether they’re leading a battle against climate change or standing up to their communities, it’s our responsibility to build a world where women have the freedom to be exactly the people they want to be – and for others to perceive, support, and praise their decisions. Only freedom can help a woman become the type of leader they want, and express themselves in a manner that feels most genuine to them.

This inspiring story is of a family member. She inspired me to this extent that after looking at her, this thought stroked me that she struggled so hard to chase her dreams then why shouldn’t I let go of mine. I pursued MCA and because of responsibility I had to leave my job and become a home maker. I learnt from Ms. Satnam Kaur that being at home doesn’t mean you’ve to let go of your passion. So I followed my dreams and today I’m a successful blogger.

  23. Namratha Varadharajan says: March 3, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    Everyday women leave their workplaces to fulfill their duties towards their families. It is a struggle. Cause we have to pursue our passions or go to work, after we have completed all the work that a woman is ‘supposed’ to be doing. You raised some valid points of true freedom being that of choice. Will visit your inspiration’s site.

  27. Urvashi says: March 3, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    You don’t need superstar role models all you need is a pure heart which can lead you in the dark. Your dedication to ms. Ajit satnam is a great inspiration and the best part was to read about how she carries her father’s name before hers. And she is doing everything to promote our mother tongue. I am definitely looking forward to write a hindi post soon. Credit will be all the fellow bloggers like toy who bring out such amazing stories of inspiration.

  41. Deepika Mishra says: March 3, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    It feels to listen to Ms Satnam’s story. You are following her footsteps. Agreed Being a homemaker doesn’t mean we shouldn’t follow your dreams. Promoting our mother tongue is a great gesture.

  42. Purba Chakraborty says: March 3, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    This is a beautiful and inspiring tribute. It’s wonderful to know how much she has influenced you. It is always good to have a few role models whom we can look up to when we feel a little lost.

  43. Pooja Priyamvada says: March 3, 2020 at 1:18 pm

    Thanks for sharing the story of a woman writer, as Virginia Woolf said for most of history anonymous was woman, hence it is so important that women have now started claiming their writings and inspiring others with it.

  44. Ruchi Nasa says: March 3, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    So nice to know about you as well as your inspiration. I believe in what you said …only we women can build a world where other women can be free.

  45. Janaki Srinivasan says: March 3, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    Thank you Gurjeet. I didn’t know of this poetess and thanks to your writing I now know of another woman achiever. It is only this way that women can bring up other women rather than pull them down. I agree to what you say in your write up that though we are educated, we are not allowed to dream and fly. But thankfully many women are breaking the glass ceiling and inspiring other women.

  46. Sivaranjini says: March 3, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    Wow a story of inspiration 🙂 perseverance and passion go hand in hand. Thanks for sharing the story of the woman who inspired you. My inspiration for life time is my mother and professionally Sudha murthy and Jayanthasri balakrishnan are two women I look up to.

  47. Meena Chatty says: March 3, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    Inspiring story of Satnam. Thank you for sharing it. I am glad I read it. The onus of passing on the culture of our ancestors lies more with mothers than fathers. We have to take it forward, otherwise, the future gen will stand to lose a lot. Kudos to Satnam’s work, more power to her!

    Wow what an inspirational story. I am really touched by her at so many levels, beginning from her name itself, her love for her language even in a foreign land. Thank you for letting us know of her. Amazing.
