The Royal Wedding: Meghan Markle's subtle connection with Mumbai


The Royal Wedding is finally happening. Meghan Markle will tie a knot with Prince Harry today at the Windsor Castle in England in next couple of hours. The couple had requested their fans and well-wishers via a statement, across the globe to donate towards a charitable trust instead of sending them gifts and surprises on their D-day.

The couple personally chose trusts all around the globe that for the issues they want to highlight namely women empowerment, sports for social change, homelessness, HIV and much more. They chose relatively smaller NGO's working t make a difference so as to highlight their work. One such chosen NGO happens to be a Mumbai-based firm named Myna Mahila Foundation.

Suhani Jalota and Meena Ramani co-founded this institution to empower women in our society. They also spread awareness about menstrual hygiene, which is something that Meghan Markle was extremely appreciative of.

The foundation not only spreads awareness but also provides the local women with personal and professional support to help them evolve as businesswomen. The foundation also provides training in health, English, Maths, and skills such as defense. Additionally, it aims to provide them with stable employment opportunities.

Suhani mentioned in an interview with a daily that women face a lot of problems on the domestic front if they're not financially stable, and that her foundation is working to change that. So when Meghan expressed her desire to be a part of the same cause, Suhani was definitely thrilled! She also mentioned how Meghan didn't glamorize the situation and was humble until the very end, even though she wasn't aware of how deeply grave these issues were.
