    Empowering images of women

    women's day

    I am not a big fan of these man-made 'Days'. In an ideal world, every day would be a women's (and man's) day! But until that happens in every part of the world, let us celebrate it for what it is..not just one day, but every opportunity we get!
    like in this pic - it just warms my heart to see little girls going to school.. esp. in a poverty stricken part of the world! There is no doubt in my mind that education is the key to open many locks in India. and you know what they say, educate a girl and you educate a village - its true! Here's to these little girls, and all the others in the world! Hope when they grow up, they can decide for themselves what they want to be - veiled or not!
    And this women's day let us resolve to work for a world where you don't need to celebrate one!
