Kaifi Azmi - REBEL with A Cause

Kaifi Azmi was a rare poet who practiced what he preached. A brain hemorrhage on 8th February 1973 paralysed him and rendered his left hand and left leg incapacitated for life. Instead of giving up in despair he decided to leave the comforts of Bombay and settle in Mijwan the tiny village in Azamgarh Eastern UP in which he was born. Mijwan was an obscure village untouched by development and didn’t even have a pin code. Today it is known all over the world because of Kaifi’s untiring efforts to uplift the village. He set up an NGO MIJWAN WELFARE SOCIETY for the empowerment of women with a focus on the girlchild.
