Let's Talk Raw
Women's Day Celebration | An event
Women are symbol of strength, love, purity and sacrifice, but society doesn’t acknowledge and appreciate enough the sacrifice and love of women. Hence they take a backseat in this patriarchal society. However, there are some women who muster the courage to stand for themselves and their
right and doesn’t bow down to societal pressure. I’m not talking about great celebrated women whom the world knows, rather I’m talking about women of everyday life, women who are living common mundane life still being example for many others.
This women’s day Mrityunjay Yoga decided to celebrate these everyday women and show the world why they are same yet so different than many. A talk show was organised on Saturday March 9 th .
