Why does Arushi Vats deserve The Pride of India Award?
Arushi overcame several struggles to meet her dreams of being a bestselling author. “One of the major struggles that I had to endure was the acceptance by my family members of continuing the path of author career,” she says. Initially, it was challenging to make them believe that this was the right course for her. The reason behind this is because most members in her family come from a technical background.
Another struggle in her life as an author is the shortage of time. Her parents kept complaining that she was so much occupied with writing the book and not spending enough quality time with them. It has been difficult to juggle both simultaneously. However, she is grateful that they understand this and are very supportive towards her career.
Arushi is an exemplary example of a modern Indian woman.
