In India, the caste you are born into often decides your profession. It is remarkably difficult to break away from that construct. The son of a priest must also be a priest, the daughter of a sweeper must resign herself for a life with the broom. In Anita Kumbhar's case, she imbibed the skill of pottery while growing up in a family of potters, and subsequently marrying into another one at a very young age. Anita, a woman from a village in western Maharashtra who had studied till grade ten, is now an example of how women in the smallest pockets of India have armed themselves with skills to help them stand on their own feet. A little help and encouragement is all they need to discover the power within.
