Fly with own wings: Swami Vivekananda rightly said about women – “There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on one wing.”
We have world youth manpower. At this stage of development, we cannot ignore the women who contribute half of the strength. As an entrepreneur, I can say that women are more perfect as an entrepreneur as they can maintain work life balance. They don’t need entrepreneur training from big business schools. They learned team work with siblings, handling difficult situations post marriage and caring through looking after children and working under adverse conditions, while handling conflicts with partners. Last but not the least, financial management- Women as a home maker can run house with minimum salary and save the money for future too. Woman need to provide sufficient opportunities for the real development of our country. Developing entrepreneurship among women and economic development are closely related – in one direction, development alone can play a major role in driving down inequality between men and women; in the other direction, empowering women may benefit development. In my opinion we should always encourage women to fly with own wings.
