If you are a man, partner with the ladies in your life – in their careers, and at home, where they can make financial decisions, regardless of whether they are working. Give your daughters the courage to dream, and the wings to fly when they have to. And if you are a woman, dream big, and make it happen because no one can stop you make it happen. And change the lines of a popular movie, ladies, Apna Time Aa Gaya.
