Noorjahan got married at a very early age and by the time she reached her prime, twenty eight, her husband passed away.
Life was not easy for this lady, who being a Muslim had to abide by the parda system.
However, Noorjahan threw caution to the winds and stepped out from her nest to fend for her kids as well as for herself.
Life took tests, things became more and more difficult, but this gusty lady never gave up.
When an NGO came to help her slum dwelling community, she took them head on and stood like a rock to protect all the families that lived there.
As time passed by, she realized that the NGO, was only there to help them and thus she stated working with them in tandem to help raise the standards of the slum dwellers.
Noorjahan today, is a successful social worker who flights for the rights of people living in slums as well as tries to do all that she can to irradiate any kind of injustice and malpractices that prevail around her.
Lovingly called Bhabhi by everyone, Noorjahan thrives on hope and gives hope to as many people as she can.
A lady with the heart of gold, had a dream to see the city of Mumbai and team Stree Shakti fulfilled her dream.
We at Stree Shakti salute this one-woman army.
