Fixing Punctures, Changing Tyres: Nidhi Tiwari is Breaking Stereotypes

Jun 18, 2016 02:48 PM IST iVideos iVideos

The role of a woman has been boxed into the age-old traditions and chores that have been existing in the society since time immemorial. And so, it comes as quite a refreshing change to see a woman defying stereotypes and breaking the barriers.

Nidhi Tiwari, founder of Women Beyond Boundaries, has been empowering women through her academy that prepares adventurers to undertake overland travels.

An Army-wife and a mother of two, Nidhi undertakes overland expeditions to far-flung corners of the globe to connect with people, cultures, environment and landscape. She says, "The travels not only provide insights to society (outside) and also reflect help us reflect within." She strongly advocates that mobility is the key for women to integrate with the socio-economic fabric of the country.

Nidhi's motive is to build skill sets of women drivers to not just be mobile, but also own public roads & highways, tough terrain tracks and more.
