Rohini- An Inspiration
Rohini Ghadiok (1980-2011), human rights activist, scholar, feminist, and most of all was a dearly beloved friend, born to doctor parents, Rohini had an ordinary middle-class upbringing. A shy child, she abhorred the idea of drawing attention to herself. Even as she was growing up, Rohini was developing the ability to hear the other person and nurture their strengths. Perhaps that is what lay at the root of her persona and made her so different, so special. She approached every aspect of life with an unbridled passion, whether in the professional domain where she worked tirelessly to redress the imbalances in the lives of people less privileged, or in her personal sphere where she always challenged her friends and family to rise above self-imposed limitations. In her short but meaningful life, she touched the hearts and lives of so many people.
