For women, Dr. Bedi listed the following as strengths:
1. Heart (Hridaya): Women are caring and sensitive by nature.
2. Healer: Women are born healers, with their gentle, understanding and intuitive touch – the very reason a patient might prefer a female nurse over a male one.
3. Humanity: Humanity is in the very nature of a woman as she is the one chosen by nature to bear children.
