Check out 16 Return-To-Work Programs In India For Ambitious Women Like You!
I am Janvi Sonaiya, native of Jam-Khambhalia in Saurashtra, currently
based out Ahmedabad but a global citizen by choice. News steers me and
I am intrigued by all that happens in the world we live. Reporting is my
passion and I like to deliver facts, without any alteration. And in brief.
Having started off with The Times Group (Ahmedabad Mirror), later on, I
opted for a brief stint with regional reporting at Divya Bhaskar and Desh
Gujarat. Thereon, followed a few years at DNA.
Contemporary media is surfing the digital tide. That click got me as a
Features Editor for the Ahmedabad-based and Gujarat-centric digital
news start-up, Vibes Of India. I took up crime,
politics, revenue and scams as beats to dabble into and what followed
has been an eventful two years and counting with VOI.
Investigative copies with my by-line have been quoted by The Wire, CNN,
NBC News and other publications. In particular, the in-depth series of
ground report from Dingucha village, met with great response online and
was also used by law enforcing agencies to trail the broad-base illegal
immigration racket that exists from Gujarat to Canada.
It requires a woman of some steel to be the other woman. You bury your dreams of having a family and children just to love a man, a married man.
Just because a man has married you, does not mean he has a right to sex when you do not want it. It is not his entitlement.
Women are taken for granted, invisible unless they have a function useful to men and the patriarchy. But we are not taking this lying down.
