While touring in Bihar and Jharkhand to document social impact of IIT Bombay’s Solar Urja through Localization for Sustainability (SoULS), I visited a small discrete village in Mahuadad district. Here I met Shabana Biwi.
Shabana Biwi is a repair and maintenance technician for SoULS. But beyond that she is a woman trying to liberate herself out of social taboos, gender biases and most importantly poverty. Take a listen as she talks to me uninhibited about the change in her life.
