Quote of the Month
“I am a mother of four children, and I have come to the realization that the period in which a woman can excel and establish a career is also the same time at which she is expected to get married and have a family. This is a universal reality. Even when I worked in the West, I came to notice that men are able to excel faster due to the fact that they do not carry the same responsibilities as women do such as pregnancy etc. So, it is not easy to achieve and maintain the balance in this respect, particularly if you come from and belong to a conservative family and, of course, you do not want to displease anyone. I hold my own principles with respect to my religion because customs and traditions change over time, but religion will always remain consistent.”
