#love #happiness #freedom #beauty #divinity #energy #conviction #courage Women can’t be defined generically, even when mentioned collectively!!! To truly celebrate a woman, it’s important to accept all ‘her’ nuanced differences, her innate strength, momentary vulnerabilities & yes strength again! it’s often said, ‘women are complicated’ well, imagine going through a lifetime of fast paced changes, physically, biologically, emotionally, socially...then realise, just how uncomplicated a ‘woman’ actually makes it all look!!! She’s not perfect, but gives it ‘HER’ all, she’s born with a heart of a nurturer, with the ‘Will’ to be a provider. She’s #shakti not for the lack of fear but for owning courage inspite of it! She’s a force of nature, that drives the seasons..no matter what the role, resilient until the very end! Dugga Dugga #HappyWomensDay what a privilege to be born a woman!!! With love & kisses, Alisah, Renée & yours truly!!!I love you guys!!!

Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu and Esha Deol shared examples of the women they are inspired by. Katrina shared a picture of her mother interacting with children of Relief Projects India and wrote: "Here's to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them... My mom - The best woman ever. The most noblest way to spend your life... in service of others." Bipasha shared a funny video and captioned it: "I am very lucky to be in a household which is dominated in numbers by women. My mother, my sisters, my girlfriends... countless women who inspire me each day. Each one is a symbol of strength and their life stories are inspiring." Esha Deol, daughter of Hema Malini and Dharmendra, shared a picture of herself with her "four pillars of strength." She wrote: "Blessed to have these strong women in my life... my mother, my sister & my 2 besties who complete me."
 
 
 

I am so proud to be born as a woman. I am very lucky to be in a household which is dominated in numbers by women. My mother , my sisters, my girl friends , my Jharna di who is working in our house for 20 years, my colleagues, my girl gang who always takes care of me at work... countless women who inspire me each day . Each one is a symbol of strength and their life stories are inspiring. How do we do it all? How are we so awesome in multi tasking? Very few clap for us or notice this super power in us... today I want to clap for me and for all the women of this world. We are awesome. We should celebrate ourselves everyday. So ladies let’s bring on the celebration of our wonderful lives ahead Happy Women’s Day @mumu_basu @sonibasu @vi_basu @baitalikee @deannepanday @suzannedadhich @mamtaanand10 @shyamliarora @priyankaa09 @kajal_s10 @tanujaamehraa @indraniray21 @preetasukhtankar @thelabellife @paulined13 @anushreekirtikar @neelu.i Athira Aunty Nia Thank you all for sharing your love for being who you are - fabulous women and girls #internationalwomensday2018 #loveyourself #lovelife

Speaking about inspirational messages, the men of Bollywood also applauded women power on International Women's Day. "She is the power in this world. From her first breath, She is the hero of all our stories. She is not just the reason behind our existence but also the driving force of our lives. Here's to all that She is & all that She wants to be," Anil Kapoor posted on Instagram.
 


Riteish Deshmukh had two simple messages - one for the women, which read: "You go girl,' and one for those around women, which read: "A woman brought you into this world so you have no right to disrespect one."
 

Happy International Women's Day, ladies!
