A puzzle waiting to be solved, and yet has the answers to everything. Complex, yet her tears say it all. Someone who maintains the perfect balance between what she needs yet meeting everyone else's demands at the same time. She can bow her head down to compromise in any situation, yet can get head-strong to fight against all odds to stand up for herself. Humble yet filled with pride; She laughs when she actually wants to break down, sings when she wants to suppress her anger. Sheís a mother whoís the pillar of strength for her children, a friend with strong shoulders to cry on, a lover who loves unconditionally. She is a True Woman.

The Telly Buzz team brings to you a special feature on Womenís day, where a few women of the small screen, stand up for womanhood, and pay a tribute to the ones they idolize and urge everyone to go that one extra mile to make this world a beautiful place..

One Woman you idolize: I generally donít idealize anyone. But in many matters, I idealize my mom a lot, sheís a senior actress from the industry and Iíve always looked up to her for how well she balances her work and family.

Your take on women being equal to men: : Women today have left men way behind, and have moved onÖ

Message: Love your self and love everyone around you.


Tina Parikh:

One Woman you idolize: There are lots of women I look up to. There is Shabana Azmi who works for the well-being of others. Then I respect Bhanu Didi, the sister of Shri Shri Ravishankarji, she is one lady who smiles for others, and works round the clock just to make others happy.

Your take on women being equal to men: I have always felt that women never needed the status of being termed as equal to men. Women have been doing all the things that they want to, and we do not need this status at all to prove what we are.

Message: As I usually say, we need to believe in what we do and I am sure we will be up there on the top of the ladder.


Simon Singh:

One Woman you idolize: Many women have made their marks in many genres. Itís hard to pen down just one.

Your take on women being equal to men: Most certainly, women have made their mark. I guess that says it all.

Message: Letís work together and make this society a better place, where we won't need just a single day to celebrate womanhood, peace and love.

Narayani Shashtri:

One Woman you idolize: No one really.

Your take on women being equal to men: Women in India havenít been given the title of equality yet. No matter what they do, women are always suppressed. Itís going to take a while before women actually start getting the recognition they rightly deserve.

Message: Work towards leaving your mark in the society.

One woman you Idolize: Mother Theresa

Your take on women being equal to men: Yes, women have made their mark in every field. In my days women were not allowed to work. We werenít given any freedom what so ever. Girls only had to live their life trying to be perfect brides. But now the whole situation has changed a lot and it has changed for the better.

Message: Women have progressed in every field. I would like to tell everyone that do the best in everything you do, but don't lose your inner character. Maintain your dignity whenever you work, understand your family and respect everyone and anything you do.


Dimple Jhanghiani:

One woman you Idolize: Mother Theresa

Your take on women being equal to men: Men and women are treated equally now a days and they have made their mark in each and every field. Yes there are certain things that have not changed against women but the situation is far better than before.

Message: We should keep doing good things and like we celebrate other festivals, we should celebrate women's day by doing some social work or some good deeds.


One woman you Idolize: It's going to be hard to pick my favorites. On a personal note, I would have to say, I idolize my mom. She has been a complete strength to me whenever Iíve needed her.

Your take on women being equal to men: I really donít understand why are we even trying to compete with men. We are different, and we have our own place in the world. And we just enjoy that.

Message: Weíre different and letís make the most of it. Wishing you all a very Happy Womenís day.
