Pune, India

I, ketaki jani, was born in Ahmedabad on 10th January, 1971 in traditional Brahmin family. Did schooling in mother tongue Gujarati & finished MA, B.ed. Married Nitesh jani in 1993. For good opportunity shifted to Pune in 1997.  Blessed with daughter in 1994 & our family was completed with son in 1998.It was blissful life with family & job till 2011. Suddenly my world was shattered with fast loosing of hairs. Devastated with the word ALOPECIA. This was dieses where hairs are lost & only temperory medicine was steroids. It was giving hairs back but with lot of weights & dangerous side effects. More painful was to face society who was throwing arrows of questions: is it cancer? Is your husband fit & kicking? In short, moving out of home was almost impossible. Heard murmuring that some lady committed suicide with loss of hairs. People in grab of sympathy were pitying me: kaise jiyegi bichari?One fine morning, i decided not to die daily. I Boldly started moving without any scarf or wig. And society was silenced with awe...

I love my two kids, two dogs & positivity. I want to work & fight against Domestic violence & for fellow Aelopecians to make their life worthy. Women with alopecia are neglected n ignored inhumanly. They are forced to live worst life in dark room with no social or emotional  contact . This is worst kind of domestic  violence. I will fight to eradicate this injustice. This platform can be of emense help & that is why i am here........!!!!! 

She is brave, bold, and beautiful. She is India
