Biker. Entrepreneur. Single Mum. Meet Moksha Jetley
She had to leave her husband’s family with a new-born when her mother-in-law tried to physically harm the child since she was a girl.
At 27, Moksha had to fend for herself and her baby.
“I was clear that my daughter is my first priority. If parents do not get along well, what will the poor kid do except trying to make sense of the situation? If the father is difficult, and the mother keeps living in self-pity, where will the kid go? I feel, a mother has a greater responsibility towards her kids. She has to make sure that before she delivers a kid, she is capable of providing a healthy atmosphere to her baby. God has made women so strong that she can take care of herself and her kids very well.”
But how did she manage to be the caregiver and the breadwinner? There were some tough decisions that Moksha had to make and live upto. Prachi, her daughter, lived with her maternal grandparents till she was 11 years of age. That ensured a happy environment for her.
I always loved riding the bike and I wouldn't leave any chance to ride one. I did a recce tour in 2008 and after a successful tour, I formed my own agency.
