However, her journey was not devoid of challenges. She experimented, made mistakes and learned from them. She says, "On the auspicious occasion of Navratri, I started selling products for pooja such as lamps, idols of gods and scriptures with a hope to earn a little and help women who don't want to go out shopping.  However, after the festival, the remaining stock was a headache for me. That day, I understood that dealing with stock for festivals is very risky and creates deadline pressure. So I thought it is better to concentrate on one business".

Our next entrepreneur is Radhika Khurrana, a resident of Oxford Square, a fashion expert and a well-known makeup artist. She has a 21 years old daughter who is a jewelry designer. Being a makeup artist, she runs a beauty parlour which is now not operational as she decided to shut it down during Covid. While talking about why she decided to shut down her salon, she says, "I know how sensitive the human skin is and no amount of sanitiser can protect us from that. No matter how many times I disinfect my products, somewhere the virus will surely survive. Each life is equally important to me. I can't risk anyone's life. For this reason, I shut down my parlour and now I am following my family's 40 years old legacy business of garment and textile."
