My Raksha Bandhan message

Repeat : Satu Makela-Nummela of Finland, a 36-year-old mother of two, won the women's Trap gold medal in her maiden Olympic appearance.

A new online survey by Bayt and YouGovSiraj
- collected information from more than 2,600 women across MENA
- 41 percent of working women in the MENA region feel they have a lower chance of being promoted than their male colleagues
- nearly 50 per cent feel that they receive less pay than their male counterparts.
- nearly 30 per cent said that they were dissatisfied with their jobs

A feature in NDTV showed how some working women have opted out of their jobs and chose to be a Home-maker. They feel it was their choice. They were happy about it
(In fact, this is a new segment being tapped by the malls!)

Ultimately it is the question of proper evaluation of options, clarity on priorities and then, making a choice.

Oprah show carried an interview with Shriver. An important message was women should take out time for themselves. ( I would add, also MEDITATE)

"Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe" Oprah Winfrey
