‘During the medieval period, customs became more important than knowledge, and women were hit hardest by this. A woman is trapped in the evil cycle of such customs. All these circumstances had an extraordinary effect on Anna's sensitive mind. This project is based on this feeling of Anna. The work of Mahatma Phule and Savitribai Phule was also undoubtedly respected. The work of Phule couple was like a revolution, while Anna's work was like an evolution. The significant changes in women education today are the result of this evolution’, said Dr. Joshi during this conversation.
