Bhamre said, “Due to women participation in work and education, India has become one of the strongest countries in the world. Women scientists of our country play a major role in science and technology, an important contributor for national development.”
Meanwhile, Rao said, “My mother has made me what I am as an individual and the credit also goes to my sister, wife and daughter. I agree with all the mainstream terminology used for women and also they are worshipped in India. But I feel women in our country today want to be treated with respect more than being worshipped.
He further said real issues pertaining to women should be addressed.
