We'd asked you, dear readers to tell us about the woman who inspires you the most.
Geeta Ravekar from Melbourne, Australia shares her story.
I admire Meenkashi Ravekar, my mother, who taught me to fight for my dreams and never step back in life.
She was not able to study due to family constraints. But she ensured that I had everything that was necessary and helped me to study and grow in my career.
She's the reason behind my success.
My mother breathed her last on July 31, 2018. She was 70.
She may not be around with me, but through her life, she has inspired me do grow as a mother.
I will always love her.
