From the panel of inspiring women, I learned many, many things. But the first thing that I remember when I think of this day, is that the only way to succeed, to make a lasting change in the world, is to be the warrior that you are waiting for. Princess is a term that people misunderstand. They think of a pretty girl, with her nails done perfectly, flawless hair, and a fragile personality. And (unfortunately) I believed this as well. I would always wonder that if Guru Gobind Ji announced that men and women were equal, why women would be known as “princess” and men as “lion”. Why were we the delicate daisy that always needed someone to help her down the stairs and pull the chair back for her at the dinner table.
