World is recognizing the woman empowerment. This is the healthy way of shaping the society in a balanced and positive way. I think , you must invite Seema Pande, you interviewed last time for her vision and her balanced view of managing the business as well shaping the society. She is a role model to a lot of young people who want to shape their lives in a positive way.
