Sahani emphasized the common finance-related mistakes made by women and the need for proper financial planning in households. Recognizing the significant contribution of women in saving and nurturing, he stressed the importance of women prioritizing their own financial goals and aspirations. By actively engaging in financial planning, women not only secure their own financial independence but also set a positive example for future generations.

The event ‘Maa Tujhe Salam’ also highlighted the existing taboo around discussing money matters within families. Sahani urged attendees to break these barriers and promote open conversations about finances. By fostering a supportive environment where family members can openly discuss financial goals, challenges, and strategies, households can work together to achieve a more secure future.

Moreover, Sahani emphasized the need for a shift in cognitive habits from short-term thinking to long-term planning. Investing at an early stage, he argued, is essential for ensuring a secure future for children. By encouraging proactive financial planning, individuals can build a strong foundation for their families, providing them with the necessary resources and opportunities for success.

Financial planning, as highlighted by Sahani, is not solely about accumulating wealth but also about making informed decisions, setting goals, and taking control of one’s financial destiny.  It empowers individuals and families with the knowledge and tools to navigate life and uncertainties and build a prosperous future. Attendees were educated on how to take charge of their financial future, avoid common financial mistakes, and engage in open discussions about money matters within their households.

Following the panel discussion, a heartwarming conversation took place between Dhairya and his mother Shikha Khaira. This session touched the hearts of all attendees as they witnessed the unbreakable bond between a mother and her child. Dhairya, in his emotional dialogue with his mother, expressed his gratitude for her unwavering support and love throughout his journey. This conversation beautifully highlighted the immeasurable sacrifices and unconditional love that mothers provide.
