Message: International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th.
27 countries (mainly former Soviet republics) have adopted International Women’s Day as a national holiday, and it is widely observed in several others.
India stands to benefit more from women’s economic inclusion than any other nation in the world, and its government recognizes this potential. Recently, the Indian government has introduced economic reforms that explicitly take gender into account, from how women allocate their time to how they access markets and financial assets.
Women play a key role in the development and are competing with men in all the fields and are excelling. Women, who constitute 50 per cent of the population, would do wonders if they were given a chance. Our heritage, culture and tradition respect and women
and worship them. Now it is high time that spirit of gender equality is imbibed and implemented. Now women are playing an important / decision – making role in all spheres of work. Let us work for all round development of women and gender equality on this International Women’s Day Holiday. She is achieving equal future in Covid-19 world.

Alka Singla from Surat Famous as Social Entrepreneur

My name is Alka Singla. Today I want to share my success story with you.
I had started my career in 2003 with only two embroidery machines, at the time when the concept of embroidery machines was completely new in India with only a few machines operating in Surat.
At that time we had imported the two machines from China and brought in all the raw material from Mumbai. During that time, there were a handful of designers and operators who knew the way about these machines. Hence, I started from scratch and first learned how to operate the machines. The journey that I started with two machines then increased to 4 machines and slowly to 8 machines as work picked up and now I have 50 embroidery machines in my factory.
I have now also turned to social work and hold Presidentship of the Inner Wheel Club of Surat Sea Face.
We have executed a big project in November, 2021 wherein we have opened 5 stitching centers in 5 different villages and have donated 25 stitching machines, 5 machines to each center. The main aim of this project was to ensure that the women of these villages learn the skill of stitching and then continue to work and become self independent. We have been doing these kinds of projects and will continue to do so.
The main purpose of doing these projects and sharing my story with you today is to encourage all women and reinforce women empowerment.

Message: The International Womens Day is when the value of women is recognized and they are shown respect moslty in the form of social media posts on that particular day.
Why just one day of respecting women? Shouldn’t it be a conscious choice to respect women and their contributions in everyday life?
Do women really ever have a day off?
In my opinion, women never stop working even if they get government holidays. When not at office, they’re always on their toes fulfilling all of their roles at home. And one extra government holiday in the name of “International Women’s Day” would not make any difference. Not just women, even men and all of Mankind should be valued and treated respectfully at all times and that needs to happen on an individual level. We must all be more conscious about our actions and thoughts toward others.

Nidhi Ankeet Agrawal from Dhule Famous as Education Entrepreneur

Till 2011, I completed P.C.C of C.A course with 5 years of Article training and Joined as Accounts Manager in Fruition Enterprise Private Limited a company having sister concerns in Pune, Bombay, Bengaluru, Noida. But very soon in 6 months I got engaged with Marriage in March 2012 and got settled in Dhule with career at stake. With support of In laws I started thinking to do something passionate and remain busy.

I selected teaching as my most passionate profession to start. I started with my sister in law Payal going for C.A foundation. Thereafter my family started spreading messages that I teach very nice send their kids for tuitions. First profession tuition I did of a girl almost failed in 5 subjects out of 8, which took admission for 10th ICSE BOARD All subjects in January 2013 with upcoming boards in March 2013. With my teaching her score was 74% in boards just in one month. So I keep faith in myself and accepted whatever students asked me to teach.

Slowly I become single teacher in Dhule taking tuitions for History and geography for ICSE and CBSE board’s. Then I thought to go out of house for professional coaching platform and hired teachers due to rapid rising enquires and admission. I focused mainly on educated married women’s and unmarried educated girls sitting in houses ……their Education going waste due to no opportunities in Dhule.
This way we took our own 3 floor place with 12 rooms only for classes with 100% capacity
Then we grow more and more to teach small kids for developing the basics
All social kitties, social clubs, social life I kept aside for the kids who are now first priority for me. The current score of my students are 100/100 in HCG I.e. history and geography specially almost 20/30 students
Name of Classes: Gatik Classes, Current capacity: 200 students, Women Teacher hired: 7, Working hours: 2pm to 9pm.

Thereafter Handling Kids of California from 9:30 to 11 for NRI kids. The women’s employment opportunities that I created is so enthusiastic that I have married women’s competed Engineering, MBA, P.Hd are working under me. I want every women to grow high altogether.

Mission: all women’s should support their husband to grow together to set the best of examples in society and utilize the human resource the kept aside for household chores

View for upcoming entrepreneurs: If u are really passionate about what you are doing then no body can uphold of you. You definitely have to grow crossing all hurdles.

Pooja Khairnar from Dhule Famous as Health/Fitness Entrepreneur

“Sound mind in sound body” is one of the most important dreams every human dreams of and so do I dreamt it too when I was not in my fitness during my college hectic schedule ..
Uninvited fats started saturating on me..
Before its too late I took decision to join fitness class and it was that time my journey for my health goal began..

As I am a student of Bharatanatyam and fond of dance, I grasped aerobics, zumba moves and yoga poses faster. My confidence boomed as I was getting physically fit.. as we all may agree that physical fitness is very closely related to mental fitness.. Priority is mental fitness ofcourse but physical fitness is equally important..

I completed my education (Diploma in textile, Diploma in German language, Degree in Bharatanatyam etc..) from Aurangabad University along with some certificate courses in fitness so as to have proper technical knowledge in fitness section..
and returned to my home town Dhule.

Metro cities possesses high quality education and training institutions and most important crowd who is fitness oriented. Dhule is a district place with many nice people striving hard to be one of the smartest City on planet. But presently our crowd is not much fitness lover.. And so along with other fitness centres I think it’s my responsibility too to make my city healthy fit and fine.

Well equipped with fitness knowledge I was eager to share it and so I started “Shine-Fitness centre” where I started guiding my first few students..
After entering this field I came to know more clearly about myths and facts in fitness field..
One of the biggest myth was/is we need to have very strict diet and strict excercise in order to be physicaly fit. But the fact which I personally experience was/is that a normal diet and an average weekly 5-6 days exercise with meditation turns us healthy with a glow/ shine outside and most important from within us.

With my 100s of satisfied/shined students i am enjoying my journey to make my surrounding healthy and shine.
