He further said that from Vedic times women were treated with respect and veneration in India referred Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, Durga, the Goddess of power and Saraswathi, the Goddess of learning in Indian Mythology. However, the respect accorded in ancient times to women has been missing in modern times and this contributed to lower literacy rates and lack of empowerment, he added.
