March 8th is celebrated annually as Woman’s Day throughout the globe. This day is dedicated to honouring women for their contribution to their personal and professional lives. They dote on their children, run a household like a queen, and lead teams as bosses at work! There is no concept of a ‘time-out’ for them. Let’s treat them like the queens they truly are. Brothers, Fathers, Husbands, Kids and family alike can join hands and cook up a storm for the women in their lives.
