CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Extends Heartfelt Wishes on National Women’s Day

National Women’s Day: As the nation celebrates National Women’s Day on 13th February each year, it not only pays tribute to the remarkable life and contributions of Sarojini Naidu but also reaffirms its commitment to advancing gender equality and women empowerment. This year, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma extends his heartfelt wishes on this significant occasion, underscoring the importance of honoring Naidu’s legacy and recognizing the strides made in empowering women across the nation.

Sarojini Naidu, born on 13th February 1879 in Hyderabad, India, left an indelible mark on India’s struggle for independence and literary landscape. Often referred to as the “Nightingale of India” (Bharat Kokila) by Mahatma Gandhi, Naidu’s unwavering commitment to the cause of freedom and her poignant literary works continue to inspire generations.

Chief Minister Sarma, reflecting on the occasion, emphasized the pivotal role of women in shaping the nation’s destiny. He reiterated the government’s commitment to fostering an environment where women can thrive and contribute meaningfully to society. Sarma highlighted initiatives such as the Mukhyamantri Mahila Udyamita Abhiyan, a concrete step towards empowering around 40 lakh women in Assam, providing them with opportunities for economic independence and self-reliance.

National Women’s Day serves as a poignant reminder of the progress made in the journey towards gender equality while acknowledging the challenges that persist. It is a day to celebrate the achievements of women in various spheres of life and to reaffirm the commitment to creating a more inclusive and equitable society.

Sarojini Naidu’s vision and advocacy for women’s rights resonate strongly in today’s context, as societies strive to break barriers and empower women to realize their full potential. Her legacy serves as a guiding light, inspiring individuals and policymakers alike to redouble their efforts in advancing the cause of women empowerment.

As the nation commemorates National Women’s Day, let us honor the memory of Sarojini Naidu by continuing to work towards a future where every woman has the opportunity to flourish and contribute to building a prosperous and equitable society. Let us draw inspiration from her words and deeds as we strive for a world where gender equality is not just a dream but a reality.
