“You educate a man, you educate a man. You educate a woman, you educate a generation” Dr. Nowhera Shaik Founder and CEO of Heera Group of Company hail from a small town of Andhra Pradesh. Being the daughter of a small businessman she had sacrificed a lot to become one of the richest Indian women. In her initial days, Shaik sold her ancestral property to establish a residential school for poor and needy girls who are unable to pay their fees. Nowhera is a student of Madrasa but today she is Dr. Nowhera Shaik. Her journey from being a daughter of a vegetable seller to Dr. Nowhera Shaik is the perfect example of a hardworking and courageous lady.
The abrupt rise of Dr. Nowhera Shaik in active politics is what caused a lot of problems for those who pretend to be women’s rights activists. All she wanted to be a politician was to work for the betterment of society, her dream was to educate those needy who are being torched by people in power. Being an empowering woman herself she believes in empowering the women of all sections of society irrespective of their caste and religion.
