What a woman wants? – KORAS

“When our family friend asked me about my insured value, i was astonished thinking about my identity to the world and purpose of my existence”, said Mrs Anjana Patodia while talking to us. A marwadi lady managing household, took a decision to create a platform for ladies like her who are talented, skilled, ambitious and looking for opportunity to showcase. An idea gave birth to KORAS – Surat’s first and only platform for Women.

WHAT: One must be thinking what is KORAS? is it a cafe? or a banquet hall?

KORAS facilitate the journey of proving your self to the world. Whatever talent you have, whatever skills you posses you can be a part of KORAS. They will provide physical space, networking, business and everything you need as a support.

Katrina Kaif, who was recently appointed the ambassador for non-profit organisation Educate Girls, fired an array of uncomfortable questions when asked about women empowerment. When asked about the necessary steps she thinks should be considered to promote women empowerment, the 34-year-old actress told IANS: “I think a lot of steps have been taken all over the world. Whether it is equality at the workplace, whether it is the attitude we have towards each other, even for that matter the attitude that women have towards each other.” This is what she added as side-note: “Lately, I have become aware of it myself. Sometimes, I honestly feel that do we really support our contemporaries? Do I really support women as much as I can, the women who are around me and in my work area?”
