Murty's wisdom resonated with the audience, reminding them that true partnerships thrive on mutual understanding, compromise, and a willingness to share burdens. "She should be a software engineer, come back, and cook. She should attend PTA meetings. No. You have to share the burden of your wife. Because you stay in a city, and you're young. Both of you have aspirations, but you also have to share your difficulties," she added, highlighting the need for couples to support each other's aspirations and challenges, as per the report.
