These dignitaries grace the function by lighting the lamp and gave a petite inspirable speech.
Dignitaries in their speech welcomed all the ladies to the special occasion of Women’s day Celebration. Expressed as despite the fact everyone accepts as truth, everyday should be dedicated to the celebration of womanhood.
Dignitaries spoke about the presence of a woman which has given a strong impact in everyone’s life. The world would have not been possible without this species. Woman is not only the one who is married or somebody who is beyond a certain age. Each feminine born has the inherited woman traits in her, the special feelings of care, affection, endless and overwhelming love and many more. Women are the perfect entities to be celebrated. We women should cherish the blessing of being a woman.
That is why this single 24 hour day is way too short for appreciating or recognizing the deeds that woman do. This day is specified as the day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, political and personal achievements of a woman. Each one of us is so confident to know our weaknesses and work with the best of the efforts to overcome them. It seems so great to see when the reward and recognition posts go on declaring the ‘Top 100 women entrepreneurs’, ‘Top 20 women CEOs’, ‘Women leading the NGOs’, etc. Women are reaching great heights of recognition and working style. This day is dedicated to the parity discussion as well. We should continue putting in all our efforts. There is no stance in which we women are less in comparison to men.
Finally wished “ Happy women’s day” and thanked one and all for being a part of the celebration.
The function followed with cultural, toy show and more programmes with a refreshing lunch. Function concluded with a great bash from all the women who witness the celebration.
