As more and more Indian women become aware of their equal status and right of education and opportunity, March 8th acquires a greater and wider significance. Today, as 21st century India women celebrate their awesome achievements, they continue to spell out their dream for the future of the country. March 8th becomes a symbolic day for recognizing their vision and contribution to the building of India. In the last few years, Women’s Day celebrations have encouraged them to come together in innumerable seminars networking gatherings and even sponsored parties. It is a time when powerful men from all walks of life pay rich tributes to Indian women. An example is a priceless remark made by Amitabh Bachchan!
