On the occasion of International Women's Day 2019, India TV encouraged netizens to mention the special woman in their life. We asked them to share a selfie on social media and tell us why they hold a special place in their life. Those interested in participating had to use the hashtags, ''#WomanInMyLife and #WomensDayWithIndiaTV''. From wife, sister to maid, people took to social media to pen down 'why she is the one'. The contest received a huge response and we have shortlisted few among them. An Instagram account that goes by the user id rima.gargg shared an adorable selfie with her house helper and wrote, ''she is inspiration not only to me but many working maid's like her who quit easily after a setback. A proud smile on her face inspire me to be confident in every weak situation''.
Another Instagram user shared a selfie with her mom and wrote, ''You are an amazing, strong and selfless woman and I am so lucky to have a mother like you......#momandme #womaninmylife #diaryofshella''. Have a look:

So, what exactly are we celebrating on March 8th again? Are we celebrating progress? Are we celebrating the roles of a woman? Are we celebrating the various functions? Time to think about what is the essence of a woman. She is just that – A Woman – A sweet little child who loves pink, that daring adolescent who tries her mother’s cosmetics while no one is looking, that aspiring young damsel who is as worried about her studies as she is about the latest fashion trends, that shy little bride who grabs her husband’s hand while yearning to earn respect in her new home, that experimenting parent who cares for her child like no one else and that confident entrepreneur who can shake the world (at least her own). She is just a woman. Celebrate womanhood. In any age, a woman is just that – not to be judged, not to be toyed, not to be belittled but to be cherished, to be admired, to be loved. #inspire #admire #woman #womaninmylife
