As they say, inspiration has no gender. When a woman on Twitter asked the netizens – “Do Men Get Inspired By Women?” it was no surprise that many men came forward to share the list of females whom they have looked up to.
Kalpana Chawla, Michelle Obama, Sushma Swaraj, Mary Kom are some of the names that appeared in the replies. Some netizens also shared how their mom or grandmother inspired them through their determination and courage.
I was inspired by my grandmother. She was illiterate but made sure all her sons and her daughter were educated. She even sold her jewellery to send money to my father,her youngest son to pay University fees when the times were tough. She thought a generation ahead.
