As per Swati, independence means
“To be free from the judgmental eyes of society
To get rid of limiting thoughts
To keep going on to achieve the big dreams
To be liberated from the societal norms weakening you
To ignore the words discouraging you
To be a boss woman and have a supporting family at once
Freedom to me is when I am me, the best version of me!”
A lot of us find independence in the simplest of things. After all, there’s beauty in everyday life.
For instance, Srishti considers independence as “a freedom to spend time at the beach, watching sunsets at Bandstand”, she says.
