While thanking her parents, especially her father from whom she believes she drew many of her qualities, Nilofer said she will remain committed to gender equality.

“I come from a middle-class family. In our common family, we were four sisters. When I talk about gender equality, I remember that my father gave preference to his daughters in studies. We were students in a convent and our brothers were studying at the DAV school. His attitude towards gender equity was ingrained in me. He vouched for the education of women. And I also worked for that,” said said Professor Nilofer.
