This woman is truly an inspiration for many.
Kalawanti Doshi, a 75-year-old woman from Gujarat who moved to Nagpur from Gujarat with her husband for his job, lost his job after a year of moving. With only Rs. 60 in her pocket, they decided to open a fafda stall. They worked their way up from earning less than Rs 50 per day to become one of the city's top food stalls.
The thela or stall was running great and the couple became famous with the name of "Fafde waale" but unfortunately, 10 years ago, Kalawanti Devi's husband passed away.
She was asked by her children to retire but she didn't want to do that. She wanted to continue with her business because she knew that she was the other half of 'Fafde-waale'.
She continued and still continues! Everyday, this woman comes to her stand at 11am and leaves by 8pm. She serves one of the most delicious fafdas which are loved by a lot of people.
She refers to herself as her own boss because she works for herself. She's the lady boss she's proud of, and we are proud of her for this thing.
Kalawanti Doshi has proven that women can be a lone wolf even at an older age of 75 and be best at it.
