There’s nothing a woman can't do. From effortlessly balancing work and family life to being a single mother, women are, if one can say, pro at multi-tasking and acing it. Gone are the days when marrying was considered to be the ultimate goal for which she had taken birth and raising a family being a part of a marital relationship the foundation of her existence. Now, we have women who adopt and raise children single-handedly.

Even celebrities such as Sushmita Sen and Raveena Tandon have shown that one does not need to marry to be a mother. And that raising a child does not necessarily require the presence of a male in one's life. Some TV celebs too, from Shweta Tiwari to Urvashi Dholakia, are acing the single mom's roles. Take a look at the single moms from the Indian television industry who are crushing it in their role as single mothers.
