 The Ahilya Sangh however, is about the strength, the power of the woman. It is turning around the connotation of the term ‘Ahilya’ was wronged, her honor was violated and she suffered in silence. Her husband too was unjust – he cursed Ahilya and she turned into a stone. It is about the intention that no woman ever come to the stage where ‘Ahilya’ of the past suffered. The Ahilya of today, will be – physically and emotionally strong and will not allow her husband or the society to inflict any injustice towards her and tell everybody that she will not be a mute sufferer. She will retaliate appropriately if troubled and also safeguarding morality and truth. She will hold her head always high.

The Ahilya Sangh will equip the woman to protect herself. She will call out to the Lord but to bless her and so that she is able to express her strength appropriately and if need be, teach a lesson to those who deserve it.


Under expert guidance, women are trained in martial arts. Classes for this kind of training and practice are organized on a regular basis. As of date, the ‘bala vidya’ (martial arts) has been taught to women. The Ahilya Sangh extends help to women whose husbands are addicts – of alcohol for instance. This will of course is conducted in co-ordination with the De-Addiction Project conducted by the Foundation.
