Jaipur, 4th September 2017: FICCI Ladies Organization Jaipur Chapter under the leadership of its Chairperson, Ms. Minal Jain, organized a Screening of a short film “KAJAL” followed by a session on “LIFE STORIES – TRUE TALES” by Dr. Jyothi Reddy.
Pakhi Tyrewala’s directorial debut short film Kajal, which has been talked about for its strong take on issues faced by women and for actress Saloni Luthra’s brilliant performance, will be premiered worldwide at the New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) 2017.
This movie deals with a women’s daily life and the challenges she faces and how she overcomes those moments. It’s about ” How to find your inner strength”. It sends a strong message of letting women be, don’t put her in tight driven society, don’t set boundaries for her, let her choose her own boundaries.
In this journey, she finds herself and the strength inside her. This strength is something that we own within ourselves and not from outside.This short film which sends a message to every woman irrespective of what they do. It’s motivating women to do what she likes to do. Something for herself.
After the screening of the film, Dr. Jyothi Reddy was invited to talk about her inspirational “LIFE STORY”. Her story is an apt example of rags-to-rich transformation.
And here is success story which has a humble beginning which proceeds through extraordinary events, and extreme life journeys. The story of Jyothi Reddy – CEO of Keys software solutions. Her sum total of honesty towards her small efforts and willingness to keep advancing in life changed her life. Fortunately, Actress Saloni Luthra was also present in the event.
-She was born in Narasimhula a village as eldest of four children to a common farmer.As it was very difficult for the family to meet the both the ends, he was forced to join Jyothi Reddy in BALASADAN, a government orphanage as a mother less child.From 5th class to 10th class Jyothi Reddy stayed in an orphanage by having a solitary life away from home.
She passed 10th class with good marks but could not continue her education, she got married at the age of 16, she reached the greatest climax of making a full stop to her studies. But education was something for which she remained passionate about.
The changing point in her life was in 1989, a night school in the village to teach the basic education for adults.She was the only educated girl in the village so they appointed her as the volunteer to educate the adults after giving some training. It fetched her Rupees 120 per month.
She tried to suicide after the constant insult and bragging from the society. But as she heard her elder daughter say “Amma”, at that very moment she decided that she has to show the world she is powerful.
A sudden change in life ignited in her passion for education once again; her enthusiasm and hard work towards her responsibility overwhelmed the Inspection Authorities who immediately promoted her to higher Mandal paying her 195 rs.
During the time, she realized the importance of education and she went on to complete her graduation and post graduation Ambedkar Open University. Later, on completion of her B. Ed from Anna University, Jyothi Reddy became a government teacher.
Her life’s journey has taught her one important thing. To live the life to the fullest, one has to work. She has observed that many women in rural India are dependent on their parents/husband. For her dependency is losing the freedom and thus losing the life. She took care of both her children and her husband during this period of time.
Every night I write my diary saying “What next”? She was wrecked with the work to do for the family and a lot of financial problems.
But with all this going on she was very content because her daughters excelled in studies extremely well and settled down in a very good place before she reached 39 years.
It was the time she first dreamed of going abroad for a bright future of her daughters. There is saying, “Success is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.” Jyothi began preparing herself for a healthy lifestyle and learned computers began saving money for her passport and visa. Back in those days, getting US Visa wasn’t an easy task, she tried for several times and failed. Somehow she managed a visiting visa and flew with a little amount.
In May 2000 and became an entrepreneur with her own initiation. Her honesty without the slightest anxiety of result was a supreme investment for good fortune.
Today, Jyothi Reddy’s success is not limited to her family or friends; it inspires thousands of self-trapped excusitis to rise above their countless defeats and fight against their stormy presence with a courageous heart and claim a better future. She proves that to be successful, one does not have to be equipped with exceptionally brilliant qualities or talents, what requires most people think to be impossible. She is also a live example of ‘harder you work and luckier you get’.
Break your so called perception about yourself if it limits you, expand your courage if difficulties challenge you, and answer your obstacles if it attempts to confine you. Jyothi Reddy is one of many success stories which prove “Nothing’s Impossible”.
Kudos!! To the FICCI FLO Jaipur chapter Chairperson Minal Jain and her team for organizing such a insightful session .
