Griha Aadhar Scheme

Griha Aadhar Scheme

Women play a vital role in every profession, be it a teacher, a manager or an auto driver. The nature of the women is that they are devoted to the things they do. They always tend to support their family even when they are married and are still employed. There are two types of women post marriage. One kind of women are those who take up jobs to financially support their families whereas, the other kind of women are those who take care of their family by fulfilling all their requirements after her family members leave home. They are called Homemakers or housewives. However, there is a wrong misconception that being a housewife is a very easy task.
