Addressing the MBA students and faculty members of MSNIM, the chief guest said, “Since olden days, the woman was always a homemaker as her emotional quotient was higher, but today she is a breadwinner also. This does not mean men are anything less. Though a lot of progress has happened in recent times, the benefits have not reached everywhere.”

She added that for women, it is not as easy as for a man to take up tasks as she always has the responsibility to look after her house. She spoke of how society looks down upon the girl child and how girls are discouraged from taking up tasks right from education to basic rights. “Today we have progressed much ahead where a woman is a daughter, wife, single mother, single breadwinner and even looks after her parents.”

Sharing the example of her own life, she said that circumstances made her study MBA after she lost her father at a young age. “My mother had faith in me. She stood by me all the time and always supported and encouraged me in my life journey.”

Institute director, Dr Molly S Chaudhuri presided over the function and said that women should fight for equal rights as a human being. Divya M Shetty and Ridhvika Shetty were the coordinators of the programme. Shama delivered the vote of thanks. Shraddha S Raiker compered the programme.
