Ever since Saakshi was a teenager, she had the urge to do something offbeat, to be a little different from everyone else around her. She had ambitions that, one could say, were a little too unconventional for a conventional society. And that became the biggest challenge that she had to face. While Saakshi wanted to be a businesswoman with a venture of her own, growing up she realised that the problem lies in one place - a woman being in the position of power.
