“If you give us 100 educated mothers, then we can build a stronger nation”. The meaning of these words spoken by Swami Vivekanand was reiterated by a special Women’s Day show, called ‘Swayamsidha’. The show will be telecast on DD National on March 14, 2015 at 8 pm.

Actor Aamir Khan appears in the show and makes some significant comments on the status of women in society. He focusses on not just the importance of girl child education, but also little boys who need to learn to respect women. “This will inculcate a healthy relationship of equality amongst the boys and girls,” he says.

The women who have taken part in this show include IPS Meera Chaddha; former Election Commissioner and writer Neela Satyanarayan; advocate and member ‘Beti Bachao Movement’ Varsha Deshpande; Dr Shweta Mahapatra, Communication Chief, UNICEF; Kalpana Saroj, owner of Kamani Tubes; lawyer and women’s rights activist Flavia Agnes; and Mona Khot, the producer of ‘Stree Shakti’ telecast on DD National.

While the over arching point made in the show ‘Swayamsidha’ is that it’s important to change the mindset, strengthening the role of women in relationships, family, society and nation at large, it is first of all important to educate and empower girls and women. If daughters and sisters are strong, they will become stronger mothers and mothers-in-law.

Aamir and all the members conclude the show with a promise that every woman will try to empower other men and women, and that’s how the condition of women will improve in our society.
