             There I was, an Indian woman on the move in Mongolia - and it didn't feel strange. So much resonated - especially the voices of other women - like Monjago, a herder, Munkhtsetseg, a horse trainer, Onika, a student, Amgalan, a language teacher and Jainaa, a singer. They made faraway feel like home.   
Sounds for these segments were collected on a 2007 US Fulbright research fellowship Produced for Outer Voices  ( which weaves unheard stories from remote parts of the world into contemporary media to educate, support and inspire others to action.
