Tea Talks: Superwomen by Prachi Garg!

Here’s my take on “Superwomen” by Prachi Garg



In a nation that reveres women as goddesses of wealth, knowledge, power and infinite energy, there are a few who have gone on to prove why. Not only have they carved a niche for their talent, but have also inspired and empowered many others in the process.

This book brings forth the stories of twenty women entrepreneurs who have struck a perfect personal-professional harmony, and a chord with their immediate consumers. Their innovative ventures encompass a varied range of services – from supporting victims of acid attacks, to providing free skin care solutions; from online retail of lingerie, handmade bags and fashion accessories, to eco-friendly products of everyday utility; from pet care products, to quirky merchandise; from empowering folk artists, to providing clinical assistance to those going through tough times; from image consulting to house hunting; from arty solutions, to innovative marketing and corporate communication; from creating happy readers to making religious ceremonies simpler – these entrepreneurs have opened avenues formerly unexplored. Superwomen is an interesting journey of how they played all their roles to perfection, aligning their families with their ambitions, showing the world their true mettle.


Superwomen” a book of 20 tales, tales of women who chose to take the road not taken and did something of their own.

Featuring the lives of 20 women entrepreneurs , including the founders of famous names like Zivame and Happy Hands. The ladies talk about their previous lives and life after their ventures. They reveal how the road to success is not all roses, you may be broke for a while, have no idea where it will end but all you need to do is give your dreams a chance to come true. Never clip your wings, you never know when the wind will help you soar.

The book was set out to inspire and it does the work successfully.

The book has an academic yet relatable tone and the author’s work is worth admiration.

Her words provide a good diet for famished readers and possesses all norms of good presentation.

The research work as well have been carried out with efficiency.

3.8 stars out of 5 from my side.

Some research work are subject to less detailing in comparison to others. It wouldn’t have been much of a problem but the author pampers the reader with all details at times and leaves their mind wondering at other times.

A good read and I would recommend it to every woman who aspires to be something; the book will fuel the fire in them.


*Though  we  train  to  be  doctors, engineers,  and  MBAs,  nobody  trains  to  be  a  traditional  artisan  – designer yes, artisan, no,
*Spending  most  of  her  time  in  villages  with  the  craftsmen,  the high-spirited  entrepreneur  loves  living  under  the  stars,  where  she believes  real  life  breathes.
* To  be  able  to  identify  one’s  passion  and  feel  it  burning  under one’s  skin  can  be  found  in  plenty  of  high  spirited  explorers  of  the world.  But  to  find  a  cause  that  can  potentially  turn  around  history and  to  make  that  one’s  passion  is  something  worth  learning
* Envisaging a  socio-economic  prosperity  where  a  son  doesn’t  have  to  be embarrassed  about  his  father’s  craft,
* If  you have  a  vision,  hold  onto  it,  work  on  it,  nurture  it  and  don’t  give  up.
* The  entire  taboo  about  seeking  psychological  help  is  what commonly  prevents  people  from  getting  help  when  they  need  it most.

* Women are  blessed  with  an  undeniable  charm  that  the opposite  sex  lacks,  and  we’d  be  foolish  to  not  make  use  of  it.
*What  makes  me  going  is  practically the  business, but what  keeps  the  business  going  is  complete  faith  and  undying positivity.
*Sometimes  it  takes  an  opportunity  to  change  your  perspective towards  life.  Sometimes  it  takes  a  deep  insight  and  sometimes a  lot  of  experience  before  you  can  dive  head  long  into  creating a  beginning.  When  all  the  three  combine,  however,  it  is  most likely  that  a  masterpiece  is  produced
* Stay  strong  while  watching  out  for  the  vendors  that  make dealing a nightmare
* While  striving  for excellence  is  the  key  to  evolution,  when  excellence  itself  becomes a  limitation  that  withholds  motivation,  we  seriously  need  to reconsider  our  process  of  learning.
* It’s primarily the word of mouth that speaks for our credibility.
* Our areas of interest often go in to define the roads we take, the work we do or the people we become.
*For people to find motivation, it is important for them to feel the force from within.
