A lady called Noora Ihsas has opened up a restaurant called Chai Saaz in Swat District – a first of its kind in the region.

The restaurant in Mingora has been established in collaboration with two other literary people.

Ihsas, a poetess and a social media star, revealed that she had been aware of the reaction of conservative people to her business idea, but that she had been passionate to open a restaurant in the district and give the message that the women of the region can perform any job in a dignified manner.

“I want to make other women realize that they can do business and earn a livelihood in a respectable manner. If a woman dares open a business, she will never be at the mercy of men and will earn with respect,” she said.

Ihsas shared her journey, the difficulties she had to encounter in opening up a restaurant, and talked about living in a patriarchal society where several men had discouraged her and said that she would not be able to set up a restaurant as it is not a woman’s job.

“When people criticize me, I do not get disheartened and instead, the criticism gives me more courage,” she added.
