Weeks after Sonam Kapoor Ahuja gave us an insight on India’s #MeToo movement in her piece, given her feminist beliefs, the actor hosted a panel discussion in conversation with entrepreneur Arianna Huffington for Thrive Global India. Among other panelists were primarily social influencers including Amish Tripathi and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.
Thrive Global India hopes to pioneer the conversation few are having in India: The importance well-being and productivity in leading meaningful lives.
Sonam Kapoor has long been the editor for Thrive Global India. Sonam joined the Founder of Thrive Global and Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington for a special discussion on creating opportunities for the female force. Sonam also discussed gender equality with Arianna.
Apart from discussing how to create opportunities for more female representation in the professional space, Arianna Huffington and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also deliberated about sisterhood and self belief in women.
The only way to live is to not think about it too much,and have incredible self belief. You need to really centre yourself and be in the moment and say – I’m amazing, I can do this and I’m the best version of myself. You need to have self belief”, said Sonam.
Arianna Huffington added , “I think there’s so much we can learn from the ancient wisdom of India, which is now validated by modern science. I think it’s all about the combination of ancient wisdom, modern science and then new role models, because in the end people learn through stories. Live life as though everything is rigged in your favour.”
