New Delhi, Nov 20 (PTI) Union minister Meenakshi Lekhi on Monday said girls and women should always believe in their abilities, lending wings to their dreams without bothering about whether any field is male-dominated.

Addressing a group of young innovators at an event hosted by Unicef on World Children's Day, Lekhi told them to go for their dreams, as she asserted that India has historically acknowledged brighter brains, irrespective of age, and honoured them.

Fourteen young innovators from across India came together to showcase their ingenious work under the banner 'Innovate for Equality' in an exhibition organised by UNICEF in partnership with the Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts (IGNCA) here.
