Amid a growing veg and non-veg divide in the country , a 27-year-old Muslim woman is connecting communities through her lip-smacking non-vegetarian delicacies in Ahmedabad.
Tanzin Makwada comes from a conservative Muslim family where not many women get a chance to realize their dreams. The Juhapura resident was only allowed to study till class 5, despite a strong desire to make a mark for herself.
Thanks to a forum called Association of Muslim Entrepreneurs, women like Tanzin have to no longer hold back on their dreams.The association trained Tanzin, who is now successfully running a non-veg dabba. Interestingly , her home delivery service is quite a hit among non-Muslim families in Satellite, Vastrapur, Bopal, Naranpura and Ambawadi.
