Happy Women’s day!!

While the whole world is celebrating women’s day, there is still a bunch a people debating why women need a separate day to celebrate, when men and women are competing to be equal…hmm…may be…But then I truly feel women have come a long way from what we are now. I have heard from my elders how women were restricted to home in olden days prevented from studying, even from going out of home. Now women have become independent and strong enough to work on par with the male counter-parts.

As the saying goes – “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world…”  every woman is responsible in making this world a beautiful place…Celebrating the beauty of womanhood – Happy Women’s day!!!

Owing to this women’s day, here are some of the women I look up to (from India)..
