Identifying their Self-worth can help women reach their goal: Babita Phogat
During her speech at the event, Indian women wrestler Babita Phogat congratulated the success of Chandrayaan-3 and said, “Women need to work effectively in various fields and also recognize their inner strengths that will lead them the way forward. We must contribute to the betterment of our country. Since childhood, my father said, “Don’t speak ill to others first, but if people harm you don’t spare them” Today, the voice of self-reliant India has gained strength. Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad is working excellently towards women’s empowerment and advancing women in order to strengthen the nation.
Role of Women is pertinent to build a Self Reliant and efficient India:Prafull Aakant
ABVP National Organizational Co-Secretary Prafull Aakant, said, “The India that was once portrayed as a poor, helpless, illiterate, and the country of snake charmers, as a part of western conspiracy, has now again become ‘VishwaGuru’ through the success of Chandrayaan-3. The leadership of India is working towards bringing peace to the World today, and the country’s reputation has grown through actions based on values such as sacrifice, cooperation and love. The Swayamsiddha program is not only aimed at awakening inner belief but also at creating a victorious program to make India more prosperous.”
Nidhi Tripathi, member of the Central Working Committee ABVP, said, “Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad has worked towards bringing positive changes in society through various focused programs for women in collaboration with campuses, such as Swayamsiddha, Ritumati, Mission Sahasi, etc. Women leadership in different fields around the world has shown the path of positivity and creativity. The students studying in campuses today constitute a generation that forms the foundation of New India, hence efforts should be made to enhance their entrepreneurial spirit and continuously learn in new arenas.”
