Mr. Ahamed Rheyas, Chairman says that when you educate a girl you educate a whole family because it is the woman who takes the maximum to educate children which we fathers don’t do often.
We need women in the Board Rooms.
We need women also to be leaders.
Women are more careful & wise in taking decisions than us.
It is important that we give more & more opportunities for women to take up higher education & play major roles in business, education & why not in politics, Mr. Ahamed quipped.
