How am I breaking the bias— I once read somewhere that changing the whole world is not one’s responsibility. Therefore, rather than taking “break the bias” at a larger scale, I am doing it just by setting a right example for my two lovely daughters. I have been showing them live examples of-
Nothing can stop you doing from what you wish to do, just the Will is required, rest are all excuses. That there is always a hope for new start in life.
You can fulfil your dreams at any point given in life.
A women is self sufficient, when it come to be playing different roles in life and yet can achieve things she has planned.
I am breaking the bias when I receive messages from women in my network and they say “You are really an inspiration”.

I feel I broke the bias by allowing myself to explore and learn from new experiences. Being a home-maker I made sure to stay self-motivated and follow my passion keeping a balance between work and home. I may not have reached my destination but my goals are definitely progressing towards it.
I am Neha Singhal, a Homemaker turned into an Author.
Life always gives us a chance. All we need is to make a choice. I always feel proud of the choices I made in life. From being a career woman to a homemaker and then to a writer, the journey was not so easy. All I had was my belief in myself and the passion to follow my heart. Slowly and steadily, I made my own path and managed to break the boundaries to fly the heights. So far I have independently authored two books, co-authored two anthologies, and contributed various articles and columns for newspapers and magazines.
We, the women, are God’s greatest creation blessed with ultimate powers. So, celebrate yourself every time and everywhere. Follow your heart and keep discovering and loving yourself.
Happy Women’s Day today and always!!
