William Shakespeare once said,
‘what’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.’
But hey, if that were the case, would we have known the greatness of the woman who hand wrote the code for Apollo 11 Mission, the one that took Humankind to the Moon? Would we have known the name of the legendary Indian singer who sang over 25,000 songs spanning decades? Would we have known the award winning woman scientist who did path-breaking work in the field of radioactivity?
A name is an identity. A name is an inspiration. Margaret Hamilton, Lata Mangeshkar and Rosalind Franklin are not mere words. These names mirror the soul of a person whose achievements motivate us to do something better with our lives every day.
And so, at RRAVE, we formed a team of women – strong, independent, stylish, cool and intelligent to participate in this special project. So here’s a little something about our team –
Ms. Roopcee Jain, Co Founder & CEO –
We believe Roopcee was just born to be an entrepreneur. She is a natural at that. It’s just a coincidence that she is also an MBA. Roopcee churns out new ideas from her grey cells every now and then. No wonder, some time back she designed her own brand of party bags and clutches, and then launched RRAVE, the Yoga wear brand. She is the unpaid counselor out of office and if travelling ever were free, you wouldn’t find Roopcee. A mother of two, she loves to thrill herself with suspense novels and loves to socialize and believes in the mantra- work hard, party harder. She works like a rock star in a team and is also super OCD about cleanliness!
Ms. Rachana Bagadia, Co Founder –
Rachna, a mother of two is an MBA in Financial management from Pune University. If awards were a marker to anything, Rachana would be the benchmark. Whether it is investment planning or her other endeavours like activities at Leo Clubs, Lioness Clubs et al, she has been awarded every other prestigious award one can think of. Rachana absolutely adores children and has years of dedicated work to her credit working with various Children Welfare and Enhancement Programs across the country. Did you know? She is a Certified Trainer of Brainobrain for Maharashtra & has been awarded as the Best Faculty & Best Centre at the All India National Competition held at Chennai. She was also awarded as the Best Trainer & Innovator by Brainobrain.
Ms. Vandana Punia, Co Founder –
An avid fashion and music lover, Vandana graduated from Punjab University, Chandigarh. After a small stint at Hindustan Times, Vandana continued exploring good, new fashion clothing online and offline, which also happens to be her favourite pastime in life. She is a warm person, spreading love and bringing in colors to office and clothes.
Ms. Nisha Pillai, Marketing Strategist & Business development manager –
Nisha works very hard to bring business for the brand. By the night, she turns into a party hopper and deservedly so. She also shops harder than she works, because hey, that’s what keeps her going! She is the girl with the headphones on, all day at the office. She likes to meet people, make real conversations and friends. She recently completed a three-month backpack trip in Europe and now she only focuses all her energies on strategizing the best marketing plans for RRAVE.
