International Women's Day is here, although we feel just one day is not enough to celebrate womanhood. While they are equal in all aspects, the patriarchal society still treats women as a minority. They are still denied equal opportunities in many countries. There are several beautiful women out there who are completely unaware of their greatness. On the occasion of Women's Day, some TV actors and actresses share their thoughts.
Dheeraj Dhoopar: An ideal woman, according to me, is the one who believes in herself and believes in living her dreams and fulfilling her aspirations. Women in our nation let go of their dreams or don’t get to live them due to various responsibilities they have on their shoulders. But the women who fulfill all their responsibilities and live their dream despite all obstacles are the real heroes. The woman who inspires me the most is Ekta Kapoor. Her business acumen coupled with her eye for talent is rare. Her rise to becoming a TV Czarina all by herself is truly commendable, and her story is an inspiration to many. I believe in equality and I celebrate the existence of women in my life every day. We should grab every moment and opportunity to appreciate the women in our lives because they deserved unconditional love and respect.
Manasi Salvi: An ideal woman is not the one who tries to fit herself into the symbolic mould which has been created by the society, but the one that breaks through the mould thus paving a new path for many others like her. I inspire myself; my struggle inspires me; my failures inspire me; my mistakes strengthen me. Every little success inspires me to keep walking the path, embracing all the hurdles and cutting through the stereotypical image of a woman. As a woman, I celebrate my life; a celebration of womanhood as we rise in our lives not to belittle men, but to discover our worth, our purpose in life and gently make our mark, thus feeling special each day.
Karan Jotwani: A woman’s spirit is stronger than absinthe. It’s full of courage, determination fuelled with energy and the zest for life. My mother is my biggest inspiration. Her sheer hard work and never give up spirit, even at this age, stuns me. I respect and love all the women around me in my life. I would like to take this opportunity to thank every woman who has contributed in making me the man I am today.
Akshay Mhatre: I believe a woman’s zeal to always outshine her own self signifies the spirit of women in our society today. All the women in my life have encouraged me to be where I am today and have helped me to chase my dreams. Moreover, we don’t need a specific day to celebrate women but on this special occasion, I want to thank and encourage every woman to celebrate the best version of herself each day.
Sheen Dass: As women, we must celebrate and embrace the spirit of womanhood each day. This Women’s Day, I want to urge other women to believe in themselves, and chase and fulfill their dreams and aspirations without fear. Lastly, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Women’s Day!
Yuvika Chaudhary: Women are the mammoth reservoir of power and talent which has not yet been tapped. She deserves the respect and values of the society.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee: A woman is one who walks on her own footsteps rather than following the direction shown by the crowd. Respect her, Praise her.
Tejasswi Prakash: A strong woman is the one who can dare to raise her voice for the cause she believes in, and this strength lives in a corner in every woman's heart, it just needs to be searched and later respected.
Tanya Sharma: The best way to change the society and the underlying issues is to channelise the power of a woman in every walk of life.
Soni Singh: Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are not simply following what society orders. Live with respect and pride.
Lovey Sasan: If you want to get a plan, go to a man but if you want it to be done, go to a woman. That's why we women are special.
Debina Bonnerjee: This LIFE has no existence without a strong ally in WOMAN in every stage of life-starting from motherhood to wife, sister and finally a daughter.
Additi Gupta: Women are most unique creation of God, without them, we cannot exist. Thank you 'woman' of my life, my mom for giving birth to me and always encouraging and inspiring me. I'm blessed to be a daughter.
