Ruma Devi - An Inspiration for ALL!!

Ruma Devi -  At The Tribal Cultural Fashion Show, Jaipur.

There are very few people we come across who inspire us in such a way that that instead of someone famous we start following them and looking up to for inspiration and career goals. So here is Ms. RUMA DEVI- an inspiration for all and especially for women who think there is always a way out.

Born and brought up in a farmer’s family facing a lot of financial and personal problems her early life was tough but she is fighter and came out stronger. She decided to work to support her family. The best thing she knew was embroidery and sewing taught by her grandmother during her childhood. With the help of Mahil Baal Vikas and ten women she started working and making cushions, bags, and garments. Under the guidance of Vikram Singh (a social activist) this group of 10 women increased to 22000+ people.

Increasing her horizon in 1998 she started Gramin Vikas and Chetan Sansthan (GVCS), with the motive of women empowerment. The women in this group were well versed in some or the other styles like patchwork, embroidery, kantha stitch, fabric printing and a lot more. She being the President of GVCS decided and took this group to national and internal platforms.

From Lakme Fashion Week to local people her design and products are appreciated by all. From our Honorable Prime Minister Modi ji to Amitabh Ji, from India to abroad she has been spreading her charm and boldness. The best part in her personality is she never left her roots while flying in the sky. She also actively takes part in various social events. There are various awards and honors earned by GVCS and her. Some of them are:

Silpa Abhimani Award by the Govt of Shri Lanka: Promotion of handicraft

Honor by Women on Wings Netherlands

Honor at Germany & Singapore Fair: Promotion of handcrafted products

Nari Shakti Puruskar

And many more in line..

Her style is unique yet traditional. Women like her are an inspiration for all. We at FashionVeda look upto such talent and admire them. We wish her all the best and look forward to her next collection.
