“Not getting what you want either means you don’t want it enough, or you have been dealing too long with the price you have to pay.” —Rudyard Kipling
Indira is a dream chaser and agrees with what Rudyard Kipling said.
It was a very difficult situation for Indira when the trekking company she worked for wanted her to join back to 9 am to 5 pm work after her maternity leave was over. Indira wanted to give more time to her child as he was prematurely born and had some health complications.
Indira made a quick decision to quit the job and start her own trekking agency. This was the only way she knew to be with her child and at the same time earn her livelihood.
After deciding on a name that sounded unique- Icicles Adventure Treks & Tours (most of the agencies in Nepal have identical sort of names and their websites look similar too), her husband's (Parashu Ram Nepal) IT team went ahead with website building for the company. While this was going on she found a business partner and thinking this would be easy for her she registered the business together with her business partner. After working together for 5 years, her business partner left and she took over the company.
In Nepal, although the law policies provide equal rights to women; practically women are deprived of many privileges. Indira believes unless women are financially independent, women's empowerment is not possible. Indira feels lucky that she had better opportunities than 80% of Nepalese women have. She is interested in working for women's empowerment. She aims to produce more female guides. Icicles Adventure already has a few female guides and can help female travelers who want to trek with female guides. Indira and Icicles Adventure wants to train more and more female guides as trekking and tour guides and employ them to make them financially independent and strengthen their family's financial status.
