Deepshikha Sharma


Deepshikha is a 2000 batch Indian Revenue Service officer with a mission “to give all of myself to what I do”. Describing her passion for rights of women, she writes “And over the years, from when I was a child to now, I have realised one thing, there is so much that holds us back. I have come a long way from the times I wrote my first paper on Feminism or tried to grapple with the Women's question during the course of M.Phil. And yet while in my mind space I have tried to fly past the hegemony of patriarchy, it's a difficult terrain to navigate in terms of the physical space we occupy. But all that changes when we tell and share our stories. That's the game changer- moving from Paradise Lost to paradise regained.
