Technology has been our savior in everyday life now. Right from managing our work emails to our Facebook accounts to our newspaper reading to health details to our hotel bookings, we are wholly dependent on technology and mobiles and apps for all of this.

With changing times, there has been spectacular turnaround in the mentality and outlook of young Indian women. It is no more mandatory for us to have a guy to complement us at every step of our life. We are mature and sensible enough to choose our own path. But nevertheless this decision requires a realistic approach and judicious planning. After all “A man is not a financial plan. Your financial success is up to you.” — Brenna Smith, founder of sheNOW.org. So all you single Indian ladies, this one is for you.
More often than not, actions influence us more than words. What eyes see has more far reaching results than what our ears hear. If even after reading the above mentioned pros of challenging yourself about handling your finances independently and wisely you still feel lack of that push, I present to you some real life stories of women who have emerged as champions in life after they decided to stand up for their financial needs, opening the sky for their freedom and empowerment.

Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
