Meet Panipat based social entrepreneur Saroj Ahuja. Read her entrepreneur journey.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to my profile.

My name is Saroj Ahuja. I was born in Ahmedabad. It was two years in college that in 1971 I got married to Mr. Joginder Ahuja of Panipat. I graduated at the age of sixty. Like everyone else, my life went on as usual. In 1988, I was introduced to a woman. She connected me with Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Seva Bharti.

I went with her to many places. Then a new turn came and I was associated with Kanchan Sagar ji in 1998 or 1999 from Inner Wheel Club and Nari Kalyan Samiti. Kanchan Sagar ji connected me with many other organizations and when others came to know about me, they also added me to their organization. In 2003, I was made the head of the Nari Kalyan Samiti.

My life had completely changed. I used to get up early in the morning to prepare breakfast and lunch and often reach at 11 am on some project or the other. Because someone or the other often had a project. In 2005, when my husband fell ill, I left everything. He died in 2007. Then a little bit from 2008, I started leaving. Looking at me, my children said, Mom, you can work in a friend’s school without pay. Your mind will change a little. Then I worked in Child Development Progressive School in 2009 and 2010 and then left.

Slowly my car came on the track and started the same thing again. In 2016, I became the head of the Inner Wheel Club. In 12-13 I was also made secretary. I also did a lot of projects in my time.I am also a member of Arya Samaj and many times I am invited and honored as the chief guest in different Arya Samaj. Even today the same sequence is going on. I am also fond of writing poems and stories. Wrote some short stories. I am also writing a novel. Whose name is ‘whose fault in this.’

Diwali is the biggest and most important festival of us Hindus. Everyone knows the matter related to Ramji. But there is a festival related to our culture, because of this our identity is different in the world. To donate a lamp means to take everyone towards the light, to light a lamp on Tulsi means to respect the tree and plant like a mother. Meeting all the relatives and friends, distributing sweets is a way of expressing this love that forgetting all the enmity, we live in love and harmony.

On this day we worship Goddess Lakshmi and Ganesha. Decorates the house. Even if sweets come from the market, they make some at home too. Keep it for guests too. Wears new clothes. Children make shops after worship. And we buy things from them. So that the shop continues to run forever. Then firecrackers are burst, even if at least some omens. Then the whole family sits together.

It’s all about fun games. I would like to say to everyone that the traditions we have, keep them safe, this is our heritage. There is a reason behind the traditions which we consider to be meaningless. Which we did not understand.  Does devotion reach anyone nowadays?  It does! But I believe that in this way we give something with our hands. Give back or not.Similarly, in Navratri we learn to respect women. On Rakhi and Bhai Dooj, they give importance to their sister by respecting her.
