About the Event

“I’m a mother. What’s your superpower?”


As YOSO & Festivelle, we are constantly looking out for means to empower women. And so we're back with the second edition of #MaaHoonNaa, a storytelling event especially for our brave mothers, who go on for years multitasking like a boss without us even noticing.


We want to showcase stories from women who have taken charge of their lives as mothers and as child bearers. Together, let’s try and change the narrative/rules that are imposed upon the modern woman, which make them believe that they 'must' wait for the right time to be able to have a child. We know that there are stories out there of mothers who went against all odds to have their child without giving up on their life and dreams. We want to hear them all!


These stories would be related to any positive experience in one’s emotional or actual journey - from wanting to be a mother to actually being one. This event is for all the mothers out there, who have done it all and continue to win everyday with their children.


We would like to think of ourselves as a medium between these kickass ladies and a number of women who shall attend the event and watch their stories online in order to empower them to take their life choices in their own hands.


If you have that story you want to tell in front of the most amazing live audience of Mumbai, send it to us quickly. Send your written or audio story to kahaani@startonce.in or festivelle2016@gmail.com . You can also use this link to submit your story - https://www.akkarbakkar.com/write-your-story/ , please make sure you write your email and name on the form.


8 stories will get the spotlight on the 30th June and all the stories will stay with us for life regardless!

FAQ’s about the event
Why is the event happening?
To celebrate motherhood! We believe that there’s a lot that we can learn from all the mothers out there.

What is YOSO?
YOSO means 'you only start once'. Get the drift? At least we should assume that there's one and only one lifetime to do everything we really want to do.

Festivelle
Festivelle is India’s 1st women-only festival since 2016. Created by Gul Panag & Shruti Seth. It is aimed at setting up a platform of women, for women and by women. We create content, conversations and events around women.
