Life Without Wife ?
A person is incomplete without his wife. This pious relationship starts with the marriage and
continues till death. It is often said that behind every man’s success, there is a woman. In

woman, can’t become next Mother Teresa, Kalpana Chawla or Sunita Williams. They also
deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in their lives. We need to change our stigma towards
women. They can also touch the moon, if given equal opportunities. Let’s work for “Women
