Be a woman-
Who is a trendsetter?
Who incorporates the old value system?
To create something new
Be the person-
Whom people want to befriend,
Whose achievements spread awe,
Who turns out to be idol and ideal?
Be the individual-
Who believes in doing something unique?
Who gathers all loose ends?
To tie up into one concrete form.
Be the woman of substance-
Who is undeterred in her spirits?
Who is unmatched in her ways?
Who has created a name for herself and
Whose name would be quoted as exemplary henceforth?
