International Women's Day

International Women's Day
International Women's Day is meant to appreciate those who have been the biggest but quietest influence in our lives. The rate of progress of women overall is still slow. Let us remember that the increase in the number of women in decision-making will not happen by itself. Rather, it is often the result of institutional and electoral initiatives, such as the adoption of goals and quotas, political party commitment and sustained mobilization. It is also the result of targeted and concerted measures to improve the balance between life and work. Those are lessons we need to take very seriously if we really wish to improve the lot of women.
Let us dedicate ourselves on this day to the task of women's empowerment and their full participation on the basis of equality in all spheres of society, including participation in the decision-making process and access to power.These are fundamental for the achievement of equality, development and peace for all.


  1. Good thoughts sir.But firstly there should be change in our mindset... the thought I am male/female should first be eliminated....As osho says even the prefix human should be removed. We are all just beings... Unless we realize this there will be no equality in this society...

    Also I would like to share this anecdote ...When Mirabai was criticized for dancing with monks, the great devotee of Krishna retorted, "Show me a man in this world... Shree Krishna is the only man I know..."

    I think that says it all :)

  2. Very true. Women themselves have to appreciate equality and justice first. In most cases, we see women allowing themselves to be insulted in the name of unfair traditions, customs or a perverse interpretation of God.
    Best wishes :)

  3. Respect yourself and the world will respect you. Never allow yourself to be taken for granted.Discover yourself, explore new horizons.Happy Women's Day.

    Thanks Mr. K.P. for setting a great example.
