For any woman who wants to achieve something in life, my only advice to her would be to live up for her dreams and do not ever let any misery or financial crisis to disuade her from pursuing her goals. I have fought for woman's rights, against sexual harassment and injustices towards women all my life and let me tell the readers that there's nothing that can ever let you down unless you yourself don't believe in yourself.

Do not waste much time on enhancing external beauty. My idea of a woman's beauty is intelligence and confidence. My role model has always been my mother Sukhwant Kaur, who is a very strong and bold woman. She has been my support and ideal."
