#WATWB An Entrepreneur-Anila Jyothi Reddy

I am glad to write this post for this month; with a gap of two months as I was busy with travel and work kept me away from writing. Hope to continue and make some efforts to shed some light in the darkness.

Anila Jyothi Reddy is a native of Warangal District of Telengana and born in a peasant family, wherein the family struggled to make both ends meet, and Anila was forced to join the government orphanage as a motherless child. She studied in the orphanage from class 5 to class 10 facing all the challenges of working in the warden’s house doing the household chores, for which she was compensated to meet her basic needs.

She was married at a very young age of 16 due to poor financial conditions in her family and by the time she was 18 she became mother of two children.  Her struggle continued as she now had two girls to take care of and this experience made her take up agriculture labour work for very small amount, and she inspired the others who worked in the field, until she got an opportunity to work as a volunteer to educate the adults after some training to teach in the night school in the village, which fetched her some amount.

“The wound is the place where light enters you” Rumi

The authorities were impressed by her initiatives and dedicated and promoted her to another level. She later on completed her graduation and post graduation from Distance Learning Education and even did her Bachelors in education and  went on to become a government teacher, coming from small town with her patience, perseverance, and commitment she dared to dream big and with determination facing plenty of hurdles she went on to become an entrepreneur launching Key Software Solutions Inc., a private limited company in Phoenix in 2001. 

There was no turning back for Anila as she got both her daughters educated as engineers and got them married too… for further reading here’s the link..

Nothing is impossible for those who believe and dare to move on despite challenges in life, Anila is an example of how no matter what is your situation, you have the power to change and bring in light becoming a torch bearer to those women who are deprived and bound by their own beliefs and traditions.
