  1. In an ever-growing populated country such as India, the focus on “gender taboo” is considered to be important. The women of India will continue to bring all the important and attractive attention from the rest of the world because Indian women are active and brilliant. Indian women are becoming increasingly important in our Armed Forces, Aviation and also in many Law Enforcement Divisions. The ratio of women to men is becoming closer than ever before. Our Educational systems as well as our Medical systems, Indian women are contributing a great deal, and this trend will continue to grow.

    Let the development of “gender taboo” receive the best possible focus in our changing society, and I is important.
