ASHA stands for Accredited Social Health Activist. It also means hope. My first connect to this woman-driven community health initiative came as a message in my Facebook inbox. I recognised Neha, my ex-colleague from our 24X7 News years. She asked me to be part of a film they were making on a day in the life of an ASHA worker or Asha Didi, as they are popularly called.
