#InternationalWomensDay: Ahmedabad Express gets candid on female role models!

A noble woman who can find, she is far more precious than rubies and diamonds. Indeed women are special and the very special team Ahmedabad Express recognizes this fact. Team team filled with brave and precious women, Ahmedabad Express has always been an outstanding example when it comes to empowering women. When we asked them who their female role models are, here is what they had to say:

Aasiya Kazi– My nani and my mother are my ideal women. My nani was and always will be special to me and I just can’t give one reason for it. She has held my hand ever since I took the first step of my life and never left my side .I miss her and I know she is still there with me, guiding and protecting me. My mom has always been an inspiration and my support system in every walk of life and words will never be enough to describe how special they are.

Aakanksha Singh-My mom is my woman of substance. She struggled all her life to give me and my siblings the best even when she could not afford it. She remained strongest all through her life. She is the best mother. She is my strength and God’s best gift to me. What I am today is only because of her. She is special and I thank her for always loving me the way she does.

Gulshan Nain– My mom is my woman of substance. I have been pampered throughout with her love and care as I am the only child. My mom’s only motive in life is to keep me happy. It feels like she lives only for me. Every activity she does is somehow or the other related to me only and her unconditional love just keeps me high in my spirits even in the hardest of times. I would be happy if I give her even 1% of what she has given me. I am truly blessed to have her in my life…

Gaurav Aggarwal-My mother Savita Aggarwal is my back bone. She has raised me to be the man I am. Through all the ups and downs, she always did what was best and needed for us. She remains to be the glue of the family keeping us together. Till date she calls me every day to check if I had my meal or not. She is my true inspiration and strength. My wife Rashna has been with me since school. She has been very supportive and stood by me in everything I do. She is extremely understanding and keeps pushing me to grow further. She plays a key role in everything I do and without her I would be completely lost.

Munisha Khatwani– My woman of substance is my sister Rakhee . She has always given me genuine and sincere advice even if I don’t like it at times. She is not only independent and has looked after her parents all these years but has also been instrumental in running her dad’s company. She has all the capability of getting any job done; sometimes even better than a man would do. I truly cherish her support, love and input in my life. She is my sister at times, my friend at times and my mother at times. On this woman’s day I want to acknowledge her wonderful presence in my life and want to say my life is incomplete without her.

Vinod Singh-My mother is my role model. She is my woman of substance, For a lot of people their mom is the woman of substance but in today’s day and age my mom has had a very important contribution in my life and she is my super woman as she has brought up five children. Not all have the patience to deal with five children but not only she has enveloped me with her love but she has always made each of us feel equally loved and important. I have always felt mom is only mine and that is her special quality which makes her so unique and one more amazing quality of my mom is that whenever we five have ever been in trouble or some kind of stress she knew it in advance. We never had to tell her that we were in trouble. She could always sense it and she always had the solution to it. Today mom, on women’s day, I want to acknowledge all your efforts and love that you have put towards our family unconditionally and especially to me . I might not be able to express all my gratitude in words but trust me mom you mean the most. Love you always.

Amit Dolawat-I am not being biased but women get complete credit for my life right from my mother who gave me birth and values, my sister who gave me love, all my girlfriends who taught me what not to do that I do all the time, my stage directors, TV directors and even my film directors have mostly been women and as far as TV industry goes it won’t exist without women right from producers, creatives to channels. Women rule my life and career and love me and all of them are and will always be special to me. Happy Women’s Day and I love you all.

Neel Motwani-Well the woman of my life is my mom. The reason behind me saying this is because she has always been my strength, my power ,my inspiration , my support system, my purest friend and a lover. She has always been on my side, in my extremes , my bad and good times. I believe , today whatever good I am it’s just because of her .I believe she is the only reason why I respect women and honestly I have started believing that if you women were not there in our lives ,we men would have been nothing without you. Thanks for making us more human, making us believe that life is beautiful. Happy Women’s Day Maa and everyone.
