    Dear @Induslady ,

    Happy women's day to you :)

    PS: though tt says login here, takes you to the page. If I figure out a way to post the video will do else I am sure one of my more tech savvy friends here will do the honors for me.

    That is a great share @Srama. Thank you! Something many women should choose to challenge themselves to get involved in financial planning matters.

    But I would also like to mention we have seen in the money matters forum here quite a few IL'ites having a sound knowledge about finances :thumbup:

    If we MUST celebrate a day for women,
    let us celebrate freedom
    from stereotypes, from expectations, from idolisation, from sacrifice...

    Stop congratulating women for being the secret behind a successful man...
    Start saluting them for being successful.

    Stop saying the mother is sacred for all the sacrifices she makes...
    Try to reduce those sacrifices!

    Stop telling women they are beautiful... Try telling them it's not important to be beautiful!

    Stop praising her roles as mother, wife, daughter, sister... Celebrate her as an individual, a person, independent of relationships.

    Stop justifying her necessity to multi task.... Give her a chance not to!

    Stop these constructs which are aimed at making her strive for an impossible balance... Let her be inadequate... And happy!

    Stop making her look at herself through a conveniently male viewpoint. Let her be imperfect, whimsical, irresponsible, boorish, lazy, fierce, opinionated, loud, flabby, ungroomed, adventurous, unpredictable, unprepared, impractical....

    Happy Women's Day!

    @nandinimithun
    With those seven stops one can reach the empowered stage and catch the limelight like sisters in big league - an
    Indra Nooyi, Chief Executive Officer of Pepsico or turn into that NASA Lady - The face of the Perseverance landing that wasan Indian American
    woman Swati Mohan, NASA's Mars 2020 guidance and controls operations lead, sits in mission control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California or nearer home or Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw an Indian billionaire entrepreneur.

    She is the chairperson and managing director of Biocon Limited, a biotechnology company based in Bangalore.
    A read of her bio is very interesting. Indian banks refused loan to her. Now she is world acclaimed billionaire with life saving drugs out from her lab including covid vaccine.

    The list is endless for those who persevere despite all sorts of odds like selfish hubbies, self centered inlaws & other kinds of hamstrings.
    @Srama
    Thanks for sharing that Instagram video. Very innovative projection of family vs money saving via investment to build wealth.

    I wish Some one to record here - what is this year 2021's theme for IWD.
    Thanks and Regards.
