Only water remains a huge gender burden in Indian society; women have to spend a lot of time collecting it. However, in the media there is a very gender stereotyped woman being promoted. While today some older women politicians in India do not adapt to these stereotypes and remain successful in their work anyway, Narayanan notices this is changing; younger professional women need to perform a certain feminine stereotype to be able to be successful at all. Narayanan regrets this deeply, but realizes that in the current media technology era this will not change. Youg women have to learn to deal with it and find their freedom and fulfill their potential anyway.
Narayanan expects that a huge feminine gender based transformation will take place in India over the next 20 years. Women will be empowered to be able to take care of their families and have a professional life because of education, micro-credit let finance, and through the developing technologies as well.
