Power of inclusive education for girls: “Par laga liye hai humne Pinjron mein kaun bathega zara sun lo” (We have got wings, who will sit in the cage, let the whole world hear this) i -“Meri icha haiki main apne matapita ki yogya beti kahlyaoon” (I wish to be recognised as an able daughter of my mother and father) -“Mein apne illake ki pehli graduate hoon” (I’m the ii first graduate from my block ) -“Apna naam kamaoon, par kuch galat naa kar jaoon, iss se dar jati hoon. Umeed yahi rakhti hoon ki aab mauka mila hai to kuch karke dikhaoongi” (I want to earn a good name, but I’m scared of doing something which will be labeled wrong. I hope that given this opportunity I will be able to prove myself.) -“Darpok aur bheegi billi ki pechaan ko chodkar, pardon se bahar niklne ka safar hai mera”. (I have decided to abandon the societal perception of being weak and afraid. My journey has been that of coming out of the veil of invisibility) -“Maine swaal uthaana tai kiya hai” (I have decided to question the social norms); Besharam banna tai kiya hai maine” (I have chosen to be shameless)
