Mijwan: A legacy of Change
A rare poet of his time, Kaifi Azmi is the man behind the transformation that is Mijwan. A man who not only empowered this village in Eastern UP where he was born, but also left a tradition that encourages a change for a more powerful and educated India.

From his tireless commitment to the betterment of his village, rose his passionate determination to ensure a right to education for every child. He believed India could only make real progress when the girl child is placed at the centre of development guaranteeing her equal opportunity to education, health and employment.

Shabana Azmi has been carrying forward her father's dream with her goddaughter Namrata Goyal to take this pledge farther. Together they are working towards transforming Mijwan, a village once frozen in time, into a model village by building it on the foundation of Kaifi Azmi's legacy.

When Manish Malhotra adopted the Embroidery Centre in 2010, they started with 1 centre. Today this legacy has expanded to 10 centres across Uttar Pradesh.

It is only befitting that the theme of the 5th year of the Mijwan fashion show by Manish Malhotra is MIJWAN - THE LEGACY. Epitomizing the continuing realization of Kaifi Saab's vision, on 4th April, the show will see Jaya Bachchan and her son Abhishek Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and his daughter Sonam Kapoor along with Javed Akhtar and his son Farhan Akhtar walk the ramp for the empowerment of the girl child.

Kaifi Azmi would have been proud to see how far the legacy of his Mijwan has come today!
