On the occasion of International Women's Day, India skipper Virat Kohli on Monday said the strength of a society is the strength of women.
Taking to Twitter, Kohli wrote, "Happy Women's Day to all the amazing women of the world. The strength of a society is the strength of women."
India Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane wrote, "I feel lucky to be surrounded by so many strong women in my life, thank you for your all unending support. Wishing all the wonderful women a very Happy Women's Day!"
India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also shared his thoughts and wrote: "May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them. Here's to all the wonderful & strong women around the world, I bow my head in respect and solidarity with all of you out there. #InternationalWomensDay."
Each year on March 8, International Women's Day is observed in order to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day commemorates women, who despite various challenges posed by society have proven their mettle in every sphere across the world.
