We are a very young country and we have to empower the women in India even more,” said Shama.
“There are further initiatives that have happened and we need to keep encouraging them to become the biggest superpower in the world and it should start right away.

On this day, we must remember to stick together as a nation because if we stick together nobody can ever separate us,” she added.
