Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
Women the epitome of everything God ever envisioned and created. A true definition of fairness and equality. On this Women’s day let us celebrate and appreciate the success and achievements of all the women who are constantly making our world a better place to live. In a literal sense, women are the better halves of men. The most important lessons in life are taught to us by women. Be it a mother teaching us kindness, Sister teaching us to share school our lunch, a wife teaching us to believe in ourselves or a teacher mentoring us for life. However, It is extremely unfortunate that in a country like India, which is a proud seat of the Upanishads and Vedas, we have come to an era where women often live under fear and prejudice. A democracy, where opportunities are not democratic in nature!
But what if I told you that there truly is a place which the door of opportunities is open for all, a place which is the very shrine of equality, justice, and free knowledge. Vedantu is one organization which has supported and empowered every woman through its knowledge network. Vedantu firmly stands by its founding principle of equality in education be it for teachers or students it strives to encourage a “Level Playing Field”. No child seeking knowledge should be limited to geographical or monetary boundaries. Vedantu is the perfect amalgamation of someone in a quest with an ocean of knowledge on the sublime banks of trust, faith, and hope. Vedantu not only has proved the principle time and again but over the years has turned into a pious sanctum for women.
As rightly said by Hillary Clinton, “Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent”. Empowering women is empowering a Nation. On this women’s day let me share with you inspiring stories of courageous girls who broke the shackles of boundaries and quenched their thirst of knowledge. Vedantu is with all the amazing students out there:
Be it Mehreen from Anantnag in Kashmir is often left stuck in her home in knee deep snow or Khunsa, who is under house arrest after certain time turns to Vedantu for their daily engaging lessons. Be it Nour an Egyptian exiled girl, aiming for a seat in Cambridge to study medicine or Susan who changed her name for a new identity online, to grip with her life or Girija who has Vedantu as her lifeline. Be it Anjali who rushes home after classes at 7 so she doesn’t miss a minute or be it Reem from Dubai who matches her school and sports to not miss a class at Vednatu. Be it a young bride, a young mother, a single mother or a defense spouse whose husband is always posted to Far flung areas in service of the nation. Be it Simriti who was a student of Vedantu’s founders and now is core member at Vedantu.
Vedantu stood behind each one of us as a rock making sure it empowers us. And filled each one of us and countless others with a sense of purpose, dreams and the strength to achieve them all. Vedantu has been the wind beneath each of these young girls and women’s wings. It has made them flutter and reach-out for the skies. It has made sure that Ritika from Haryana, Nalina from Bangalore, Abhavya from Jhansi and Sipra from Cuttack dream, believe in their dreams and have the courage to pursue them. It has made sure that each girl can be safe and sound in the comfort of her home. It made sure that no one has to ever give up on their dreams just because they are in a far-flung area in Indo-Burma border or on the icy heights of Kashmir.
These were the stories of young women who pushed the boundaries so hard that even society or geographical limitations were not able to stop them from achieving their dreams. Vedantu salutes to all such powerful women and visions to touch billions of lives around the globe and convert their dreams into success stories.
