“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life “
(Mohammad Ali)

Human life in the world is as much dependent on women as it is on men, while naturally women are handling the most important affairs of creation such as birth and training of children..
There are many such talented and enthusiastic women in the Kashmir Valley in sports. Somewhere they face a lack of basic amenities and their work is not appreciated in government and public circles.
Speaking of Kashmir, the girls here have represented Kashmir on national and international platforms in the field of sports. Be it football coach Nadiya Night, Baramulla cricketer Iqra Rasool, Rugby player Irtiqa Ayoub, or a two time world kickboxing champion Tajamul Islam who recently won gold medal on October 22 last month in Egypt.
Man and woman are human and as human beings, both individually are great masterpieces of nature in terms of their creation and attributes. Although Adam was given superiority over all creatures and women have an equal share in the exaltation given to Adam as a human being.
Just as time is setting the stage for development and mankind is reaching the stage of development, in the same modern age, women are shining side by side with men and prove everywhere their abilities and virtues. Every sector, be it political or social, economic or operational, women in each sector are on the path of development.
“Every women’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other on ” (Serena Williams)
