A fighter—that is how everyone who knows Radha Yadav.

Her tale is one of overcoming obstacles. Her father migrated from Uttar Pradesh to Mumbai in pursuit of a better. @Radhay_21

She comes from a lower middle-class household. Their family resided in a small room in Kandivali as he sold milk.
She fell in love with cricket as a child after seeing the men in blue win the coveted ICC Men's World Cup in Mumbai.
But her father, who afterwards worked as a street vendor selling vegetable could not provide her with the money to travel to a practice game.
“I had told her father when I took her under my wings that I would either make her play for India or ensure she gets a job with Railways while playing the sport", says Naik, who supported Radha's dreams in every way, including buying her kits.
Praful's faith and Radha's sacrifices have, and Radha's hard work finally paid off as cricket changed her and her family's life.
With her earnings, she has finally bought her proud father a proper grocery store.

Dear Gurgaon,
Today I sit at my desk to write a letter to you, my love.
You embraced me when I played in your arms during the rain.

Your green cover, birds chirping, women giggling while going to the well, and children playing in the pond. I miss that all.

The birds chirping was my alarm for the day; the giggling of the woman going to the well to fill water, the children jumping in the pond, I miss that all.
Both of us have forgotten each other. Maybe I have failed you more than I used to love you.

The beauty you had when the corn used to grow was like your long hair, yours with the mustard flower on your long silk hair.

In 2012, Lalita's face was severely disfigured when her cousin threw acid at her over some minor argument at a family wedding in her home town of Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh.⁠
So many surgeries later, too, my face was deformed.
In need of a change, I moved from Azamgarh to Kalwa in Thane near Mumbai," says Lalita.⁠

One day, Lalita dialled the wrong number. Or so she thought.⁠
A fortnight after making the call, the Mumbai woman received a call back from the number.⁠
