People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but have you wondered why or what they meant by it? To behold is another way of saying “to see”. Thus, a beholder is a person who sees, observes or gazes upon something or someone. The expression beauty is in the eye of the beholder indicates that the beholder’s eyes decide if what they are seeing is beautiful or not.
Inspiring the young generation of today isn’t just about ordering them around and expecting them to do what you think they should be doing.

It is common for us to talk negatively about ourselves – in particular, our appearance – when we’re expressing emotional pain.

Education and familial privileges may have allowed most women in today’s world to realise their full potentials in the best possible manner. Unfortunately, there are still a section of the society of underprivileged women who lack the education and confidence to find their feet in a male-dominated society and make their presence felt.
In some societies, women are still discriminated by their gender and are not given the same rights as men. Gender bias prevents them from living an independent life free of fear and domination. For women to strive towards their best, they must possess the self-worth, confidence and freedom to decide with regard to their private and professional choices.
