Never has been it been such wonderful times for women in history, they are being celebrated and applauded for being the nurturers, givers and doers. Not that women need a special day to be celebrated but it is always good to have a day dedicated to celebrating Womanhood.
Women the equals in this world who have contributed sometimes silently, sometimes lovingly but always graciously , women who have stood up for the righteous , fought for what is theirs to take the inspiring role models to look upto , not just for the women but also men….. This day is a celebration of femininity and feminism.
Oberoi Mall one of the most fashionable shopping destination to shop in Mumbai was no different in applauding women and celebrating their special day. Every wednesday is earmarked as Women’s Wednesday by the mall and this wednesday it became extra special as Women’s day was on a wednesday. They ran a campaign looking for women who rose to occasion when situation challenged them and shone , we call them Women of Substance.
Rebecca Noronha took up the challenge of running her father’s elevator business when he fell ill and without any prior experience of having run a business, stood upto the challenge and came out shining.
Rachna Padia always dreamt of becoming and a Doctor , despite family opposition she stood her ground and defied everyone to become a doctor.
Pooja Jogi wanted to travel, which she did in style. She has travelled over 2 lakh Kilometers on her bike, now that is one stylish way to take the deem road literally.
They were all felicitated and applauded at a very special celebratory event organised at the mall. I was happy to see how everyday stories resonated and inspired the ones who haven’t yet taken that chance of doing whatever they always wanted to. There was sparkle in the eyes of women in the audience and I could see how these women have been inspiring them then and there.
The evening resonated the celebratory essence in the air, there were fun games that the women played won gift vouchers from the mall….after all shopping does bring a smile on a woman’s face…….
I took the stage to sum it all up , 365 days in a year, 12 months , 52 weeks…….everyday is a women’s day , celebrate everyday and always let your Heels, Head and Standards be high…….. Because being a woman never goes out of fashion…..
