Women should realize that, irrespective of their education or position, their foremost obligation is to protect the home. For lakhs of students and children who go to school, the mother is the first teacher. From the moment of birth, for every one the mother is the preceptor. If such a teacher leaves her home to teach other children, who will teach her children? For Indian (Bharatiya) women, the first duty is to reform the home and run it along ideal lines! The home and the family is the basic social institution everywhere in the world. When the home improves, the whole world will be better.

Women too are doing all jobs equal to men. In fact, women do work more sincerely with dedication.

He said 99% of the employees were women and added that women do better work than men. They do not stop or step out till the allotted work is completed. They have the work culture better than men. It is nowhere stated in any sacred text that women should only cook and not do work like men.

Where there is Love, there God is evident; God is the Life-breath of every soul.

Whoever withdraws their heart from wife, child, and parents and loves me, is my real lover.

Why does the sun rise and set every day without delay or disruption? Why do these streams and rivers roar, murmur, and gossip over rock, pebble, and sand, as they meander to the parent sea? This is the answer: Know that I am the One who has ordained that these be such and shall behave so.
