Yogita had lost her husband at the age of 30 and thereafter returned to her maternal family. At the time, it was very hard for her to comprehend the situation and the road ahead was unclear. She decided to pull herself together to support her father who was the sole earner in the family of six. Now she is not only independent but also is able to support her family and educate them. Watch her narrate her inspirational story.

We thank Sarkari Pariksha for their support!
