23. “You sent me to university to get a degree, not a husband.”

When we first meet Kala Dandekar, she is bright, cheerful, and smart. The woman seems to have everything in life: a loving family, a great job she’s passionate about, and a doting fiancé. While many women envy Kala’s romantic life, Kala can’t seem to join in on the gossip, wedding planning, and frivolous chit-chat.

Kala is a young woman who could have very easily slipped into a life of comfort, but from an early age, she valued her education. While many female colleagues envy Kala’s love life, Kala yearns for freedom; freedom from marriage, children, and domestic life.

As Kala’s father – and pretty much everyone else – implore Kala to slow down and just enjoy the coming wedding, Kala stays true to herself. Our favorite pharmacist/explosives expert will stay true to herself and continue to pursue what she’s passionate about; not babies and playing house, but her career.

We love this spark and girl power moment. While many women pine for love, Kala is determined to not be trapped by rules of society. We respect it.
