What Women Can Teach Us About Compassion


It is said “[t]he road itself has power … that suffering itself can have an inner door … that there is a resilience even in the midst of it.” In this conversation with Gitanjali Babbar, we get glimpses of the power of resilience — both Babbar’s, as well as the thousands of women and children whose lives she touches, and that touch hers. Babbar started a nonprofit named “Kat Katha” or “Puppet Show” and works with over four thousand women sex workers, and 1,500 children living in 77 brothels in India. Babbar initially founded this organization with the intention of liberating the women and helping them make new connections. But, instead Babbar was left transformed and connected by the love she shared with these women.
