My strong determination and my Commitment helped me to achieve my ambitions and which helped me to become self -dependent person. I have faced Gender bias in my family and in my society due to their conservative perceptions. orthodox perceptions and some selective parameters for females.
I had to face these kind of several constraint in my life's different stages.

I have successfully crossed all constraint and create a great Image of Females not only in my society but also in Engineering and Steel industry in National and International level.

I was the first female at the steel tube manufacturing workshop during my training in 2005 and similarly.
Till present I am only female from India who stepped out and broken all the barrier of stereotype in male oriented industry. Fortunately, in this special and super critical applications zones i.e. Distinguish Professionals. Industrialist. Engineers and Traders everyone has appreciated me. supported me and provided me a new recognition as a First Female Founder in Steel Industry in India.
It was really wonderful empirical experience to work in this special steel industry, where I have faced several challenges, adverse situations financially, physically, technically and operationally. As I belong to non-technical background , my responsibility to learn technical aspects has been increased. I have started my professional life in steel plant Dewas (Madhya Pradesh), India.

My synergy and motivational spirit and appreciations from buyers and suppliers were my main capital assets. I have been closely working with Indian Engineering industry and got recognized as a first female founder of steel services company.
