An Indian explorer, athlete and performer, Charu was named a “Power Woman” alongside Oprah Winfrey, Melinda Gates, Sonia Gandhi, Devita Saraf and Krishna Patil by Youth Incorporated magazine in their March 2012 issue. After expeditions to all 7 continents, 5 National Awards, and a whole chapter on her in 9th grade English and 10th grade Hindi textbooks in Maharashtra, she is one of India’s most promising young achievers.
From Youth Incorporated Magazine: “I love what I do and I do what I love. This is what keeps me going. I have developed an attitude to see the silver lining on every cloud. Believe in yourself and follow your heart. If you don’t know what your heart wants, just have faith and remember that the dots will connect in the end!”
