Out of numerous inspiring stories, the crazy tales bring to you an inspirational story of one strong-minded woman, Megha Shisodiya.

When the crazy tales asked her to give her introduction, she states, ”I am Megha Shisodiya from Delhi, currently working as Communication Manager for Indian lifestyle designer Raghavendra Rathore where I take care of Pan-India outreach events, Interviews for his Design college, and career counselling. I have worked as an Assistant professor for fashion at Amity University and Bangalore University for almost 4 years and also have 5 years of experience in the fashion retail industry.
A post-graduate in Design from Nift, Delhi I am a freelance fashion designer, an educationist, social worker who has worked with around 14 NGOs for development, education and mentoring women and specially-abled and slum children, traveller, motorcycle enthusiast, and a passionate free-spirited rider who has travelled around 20 states of India on my Royal Enfield. I have been riding motorcycles for a decade by now. covering around 35,000 km.
I own Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X, train girls who want to break free and have recently completed my longest ride, Delhi to Kanyakumari in the month of October 2020 for the promotion of Indian tourism and hospitality. A humanitarian by heart, I believe in a quote, “Money can’t buy you happiness but it can get you a motorcycle, and that’s pretty close.”
When we question her, how she is making a change in society? she said’ well, “Being an educationist, I believe that knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. Therefore I have always worked with several NGOs spreading education and awareness for well-being to children who are in slum areas, especially-abled, and their mothers who face challenging issues when it comes to earn and serve the needs of family and their children. I also influence rural and urban women to raise themselves stronger, train them for the future, counsel them and help them to prosper in their futures by giving wings to their aspirations and hobbies or ambitions in life.”
During the interview, we questioned her about the support system which made her what she is today? to which she replied, well “My support system is my parents. They have always supported me during all odds and against every society that raised questions on my different choices in life. But it was my mother and my father who stood by my side every single time and made me iron-strong to sail through any challenge. My siblings especially my sister and my husband were equally supportive throughout and never let me face any downfall alone, It’s because of the family support I Could reach here today.”
Apart from this, we question her about her favourite vacation she has spent and her favourite food; she quickly mentions “ My favourite vacation was last year when I went on a 4000kms expedition from Delhi to Kanyakumari on my Royal Enfield motorcycle. I crossed 8 states and stayed at every state for a day or two and enjoyed meeting people there, got to know more about their cultures, and enjoyed the local food. That trip was full of exploration, adventure, learning, and soul happiness. My favourite food is Mexican.”
When the crazy tales, asked her if she had any crazy or influential incident which brought a change in her & would like to share with The Crazy Tales? she quickly replied “Life is full of incidents and experiences and each example brings learning for us. I have had a lot of crazy and influential experiences but the one that moved my soul was a recent cause ride I did to Maharashtra covering 4 states. It had a beautiful cause #love for kids, where we were sent on a sponsored ride by Dettol India and an NGO to create awareness about deaths caused due to malnutrition in India.
Before this, I wasn’t aware of such a high mortality rate for under 5 age children in India. That trip entirely changed my perception towards taking these issues on low key. Since then I have started spreading awareness regarding malnutrition and hygiene among rural mothers and women and trying to bridge that gap so that every child born in India can stay healthy as they all deserve good well being and life.”
