Gurugram: Ahead of the International Women’s Day on 8th March, Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd. (“KMBL” / “Kotak”) today unveiled a specially commissioned sculpture to honour the indomitable spirit of the Aatmanirbhar Indian woman. The sculpture titled “Meri Udaan” was unveiled at the corporate centre of DLF Cyber Hub, Gurugram.
Designed by artist Shaila Nambiar, the sculpture represents today’s confident, self-assured and emancipated Indian woman on her way to fulfilling her aspirations. The red cape flowing from her shoulders, inspired by the Infinity symbol in Kotak’s identity, symbolises her superpower; her limitless strength and resilience. Chief guest Dr Alka Mittal, Chairman and Managing Director, ONGC unveiled the 21ft high installation along with Shanti Ekambaram, Group President – Consumer Banking, Kotak Mahindra Bank. KMBL’s Silk patrons, key women leaders, working women across organisations and women digital influencers also graced the occasion.
Dr Alka Mittal, Chairman and Managing Director, ONGC said, “Financial independence is real economic freedom. I am happy that better professional opportunities have enabled women to lead from the front on all things about money. This Women’s Day, I want to congratulate the ‘Aatmanirbhar’ Indian Woman who has chosen financial freedom as a way of life and Kotak for empowering their women stakeholders.”
Shanti Ekambaram, Group President – Consumer Banking, Kotak Mahindra Bank said, “The government’s continued impetus on girl child education and increase in women opting for higher education, has resulted in a rise in the number of working women. Indian women now earn, invest, save, and plan their finances confidently and independently. The era of “Abla Naari” is over. Now, it is the era of “Naari Shakti”. They are owners of their present and builders of their future.
