Now, ladies special post office in city

The department of postal services is set to open its first “all-woman post office” in Mumbai on April 12.
The office, which will be known as the Mahila Dak Ghar, will open at Town Hall Post Office near Central Library, SBS Marg. Only women employees will manage the postal services and operations at this post office. The office, which will be open from 10 am to 6 pm, will offer both traditional and modern postal services. As of now, 12 female employees will run the Mahila Dak Ghar.
The women-friendly initiative will be inaugurated by P. Gopinath, secretary (posts) and chairperson, Postal Service Board in the presence of Col K.C. Mishra, Vishisht Seva Medal chief postmaster general, Maharashtra and Goa circle.
Earlier this year, on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2013, the first all-woman’s post office in the country was inaugurated in New Delhi by Kapil Sibal, minister of cabinet for communications and IT, in the presence of Ms Gopinath.
At the time, Mr Sibal had announced that more such offices would be opened in the country, especially in the metro cities. The new office in Mumbai is part of the same initiative.
Currently, the Maharashtra Postal Circle has a total staff strength of 26,468, out of which 5,008 are women.
“As a mark of respect to the women of Maharashtra, we decided to launch the first Mahila Dak Ghar in this circle in Mumbai. It is going to operational in the next two days in a completely women-friendly environment,” said Vinod Kumar, director, postal services in Maharashtra.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.
