From social reform to politics, economy to education, science, and research to business, sports to the military forces, and many more, women have played an invaluable role in shaping the nation.

Success, she emphasized, lies in the self-awareness and self-belief that every woman possesses. It is vital not to compare oneself with others but to awaken the infinite power within. Her words resonated deeply with the audience, fostering a sense of confidence and self-empowerment”.

By empowering women economically, the President believed that the state and the country could witness remarkable progress.
“The President acknowledged the tribal society’s exemplary practices, with the absence of the dowry system being one significant example.

By highlighting the tribal society’s positive examples, President Murmu encouraged the broader society to learn from them and abandon regressive practices”.
