Women Achiever: Indira Bhojwani – Jeweller, Astro Gemologist, Music Event Director
By Meher Castelino
Multi-talented Indira Bhojwani creates exquisite jewellery, promotes Indian music from the grassroots levels and has held shows around the country with her Saazindiya programme. She was awarded the WOW Sindhi iconic award for Entrepreneurship. As an Astro Gemologist, she reveals the secrets of wearing the right astrological gemstone according to the science of Navratnas and birthstones.
2020 Goals: India has a wealth of multi-faceted musicians. I will work on showcasing their talents at as many music events in India as well as internationally through my venture SAAZINDIYA. I would like to bring aggressively to the forefront the awareness of music being therapeutic and spiritually uplifting by having more music healing sessions with trained musicians from all over India. On a personal level, in these unprecedented times, I would like to be a wealth of support to children and grandchildren to guide and support them in their future lives.
Feminism to Me: Women empowerment – Always try to fix another woman’s crown – Solidarity and Support. I subscribe to the ideology of Devi Shakti in her 3 avatars – Durga (Strength), Lakshmi (Wealth/Prosperity) and Saraswati (Arts/Learning/Knowledge). A complete woman in all her multiple roles is true Feminism.
Cult Products: “BE INDIAN BUY INDIAN”. After using a host of international products, I gravitated towards Ayurvedic brand Kama, my personal favourite. I use the day and night creams, body washes and hair cleansers as well as massage oils. I play around with Lakme beauty products. One brand I stumbled upon is Innisfree, a Korean brand now available in India, which has a very lovely range.
How do you perceive beauty for a woman in 2020?
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Beauty comes from your inner self, your positivity, being comfortable in your own skin and at peace with yourself. This radiance exudes from your persona and draws people to you. Refrain from the Botox and fillers and cleanse your aura.
