“Nehaa is a Daughter since 1971, a wife since 1994 and a mother since 1995”. This is how Nehaa S. Patil describes herself in her profile. She is the founder and chairman of an NGO “Modern rural Architects of rural khurukshetras” whose mission is to empower people with knowledge and resources to manage their lives in a better manner and raise their quality of life. She represents a woman in the modern world who is successfully playing so many roles simultaneously. In another corner of the world, more than three decades ago, Wangari Maathai came up with the idea of using economic incentives to encourage rural women and farmers to plant trees on their land to protect the environment and promote sustainable development. In 2004, Maathai won the Nobel Peace Prize for her work with the Green Belt Movement, a non-profit NGO she founded in her native Kenya.
