women in my life, who not only encouraged me to follow my dreams but also
helped me spread my wings. Her strong and positive attitude inspires and motivates to grow through all the hurdles

want to send out to all the women around the world on this occasion?
all the women who have outshined and made this world a better place. Remember
“It’s never too late to reinvent yourself, accept and believe in your power

you is ‘women empowerment’?
Empowerment is supporting and giving them an equal chance to stand in the
society. I have seen that our society focuses on a man’s package for
marriage, whether he would be able to bear the expenses of the family where
girls are hardly given time to pursue their dreams. We nurture the society, go
through various transformations, manage both our family and workplace still men
are seen as the guardians of the society. Even when we look at the film
industry a hero always saves a heroine. It’s never the vice-versa. We
too can play better roles in the society apart from being decked up as
pretty dolls. Even Mother Teresa,
Mary Kom, Neerja Bhanot, Kiran Bedi would have started from the scratch, but
they have contributed pretty well for the society and will remain an epitome of
women empowerment for all of us.
are the main challenges facing women at present in India?
Oppression, Harassment, and Abuse. Even if we say we live in a
well-educated 21st-century woman still do not have the liberty to take
decisions on their own. There are still women who need education but cannot
afford it, they are still likely to be seen as victims of domestic violence,
they are underrepresented in politics and rape victims are still seeking
justice. You celebrate when The Miss World title is grabbed by us or Gold
medals are won by female players at the Olympics, so what holds you back
respecting women at all other grounds? Give women sitting at your house an
opportunity and above all respect they owe to the society.
yourself in next 5 years?
various NGO’s and MNCs, I wish to create a healthy environment worldwide. In
these 5 years, I wish to see all the clients living a healthy and nourishing
lifestyle. I certainly hope to remove the fad trends from the society and help
them to make right choices today, for a bright and healthy tomorrow!
