Women of mega wonders

“Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacities” are the words of Mahatma Gandhi that we should not forget as March 8 marks the International Women’s Day. Women have the knack to fulfill multiple roles in the society, as mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, learners, workers, citizens, leaders and so on.
Indian women have been adorning thrones of power at various levels. They shine as Chief Minister, Prime Minister and now, even as the ultimate President of the Nation. Jhansi Rani and Sarojini Naidu are the forerunners in the legion of women courage of our nation.
Present generation of Indian women continue the tradition without any flaw and shine at various positions in and out of the country. If as an entrepreneur, Indira Nooyi, is the fourth most powerful women in the world, Shriti Vadera is there in the British PM’s office, as a special advisor. If Kalpana Chowla is a name eternal, Sunita Williams keeps our dreams aloft. Regiments of Indian women outshine in the areas of sports, politics, literature and what not - even in the defence of the Nation.
Hence for them to excel on the magic stages won’t be anything of difficulty. In this world of women emergence, let us keep the magic gates wide open for ladies. Let girls learn this awesome art and more women magical performers emerge. Native magical arena already have a good number of girls flourishing.
Let us encourage them by devising more customized magic suitable for women performers. Surely, a point for our magic manufacturers to take care of. As Gandhiji has once asked, who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?
