Navya Naveli Nanda has a strong voice and she is not afraid to have it. Daughter of Shweta Bachchan and granddaughter of Amitabh Bachchan, Navya makes her own identity through her work with the NGO Project Naveli.
As the Naveli Project began a “period positive house” in Gadchiroli, Maharashtra, Navya took to Instagram to share her enthusiasm for the development. “Our first positive period house was inaugurated today in Gadchiroli,” wrote Navya, who is currently in New York, “Watching this project come to life has been very rewarding. We are excited to build 6 more houses like these very soon so that we can continue to fight the age-old custom of banning huts during menstruation. Thank you for making sure that women around the world can have safe and happy periods. “
She then responded to a comment on a user’s post asking why she wasn’t present for the grand opening. “If the project meant so much to you, where were you at the inauguration?” the person asked. “I’m sure you know we’re in the middle of a pandemic?” was Navya’s sharp response.
A few days ago, in a discussion on women’s health, she spoke about how health care should be part of the debate on gender inequality: “I think before I even understand the access to health care, it is important to understand how health care is perceived by women in general. Women prioritize the health and well-being of their families over themselves. I saw this happen at home with my grandmother and my mother. They are the only caregivers. For this reason, they always take care of the family, the husband and the children. I don’t think their own health, mental or physical, is a priority.
Navya Naveli Nanda was part of the online healthcare portal called Aara Health after graduating. Her favorite project, Project Naveli, aims to empower women by tackling the problem of gender inequality in India was launched earlier this year.
