“Mayin”, in the Rig Veda signifies, the Creator of the Universe and consequently the creator of Maya.
The Sanskrit meaning of Mayin is the one who has the art & skill of enchantment, representing Hindu Gods Brahma and Shiva.
Mayin is also another name of Lord Krishna because veiled by his divine Maya, he is not revealed to all.
True to its meaning this portal has been created to celebrate and showcase the web of beautiful, worldly & stylish offerings that creative women entrepreneurs have spun for us to enjoy.
I am a Feminist, and a proud one!
Females today are no longer confined to just being professionals; they are bubbling with the excitement of starting something of their own! When I say ‘professionals’, I regard being a homemaker or being a mother as ‘Professional’ as being a teacher, doctor, chartered Accountant or a CEO of a company. While the Guys are turning more risk averse and engrossed in building the safety net in their family business or their corporate jobs, the Girls are ready to take the plunge. Media can write all about the safety or rather how unsafe women in India are; I would rather celebrate the success of my Gender!
With this backdrop, I introduce my blog- Mayin – a Sanskrit word meaning creator of Maya, or how WiKi puts it- as a “life Giver”; a god responsible for giving souls to new born babies!
Not saying that I am a God of any sort, this name just caught my fancy as I want my blog to be a platform to showcase budding female entrepreneurs. Every second friend of mine is ‘starting something of her own’ and I want to take this opportunity to salute this spirit.
