Nagpur: “Women are known for multi-tasking where they fulfil their responsibilities at home and also do justice with their job. It’s heartening to see so many Chartered Accountants ladies who are contributing in various manners in development of nation. There was a time when people use to feel that few jobs cannot be done by females. With time women have proved their capabilities in multiple fields and are doing exceptionally well in their fields.
