Women’s Day

It’s International Women’s Day today and I can’t resist myself from congratulating and celebrating the women power who were a big source of inspiration to not just women but the entire human race. Their success mantra had always been simple – “Rise and Shine”. While women have started building their territory of success in every diverse field irrespective of age, education, background, finances, and location, they deserve the acknowledgment worth being celebrated. Today being their day, there wouldn’t be a better time than this to greet and laud those wonderful women who achieved the milestones setting a benchmark for the male community and an inspiration to all the women. Wishing all the women a Happy International Women’s Day. Here are few motivational quotes from the successful ladies hoping these would inspire, encourage and motivate all those who read it.
