Many years ago, a young lady traveling in a Mumbai Local train heard the sad screams of a women weeping on a railway platform: She looked out and found a women apparently from the village crying. She got out from train, and found that the women, in the rush had lost sight of her husband, but could not make any complaint as she did not know how to read or write, and was not allowed to utter her husband’s name.
This young lady, who heard the cries, Asha Mittu, organized a search and finally found the women’s husband, and from that day forth decided she would work towards women and children’s education. She heard the screams, heeded it and formed the Janvi Charitable Trust. Today Janvi Trust has brought thousands of smiles where once only screams existed.
