The International Women's Day celebrate this very faith and hope of women across the world. Its a time when stories of all women who fought and made a mark for themselves are remembered and issues that affect contemporary women are discussed and solutions sought at. This time around, March 8 holds special place in India since the day is being celebrated with the festival of colors, Holi. Let's hope this brings about more colors of satisfaction, freedom and happiness in the lives of women. Happy Women's Day!
