Women’s Day Celebration

On Saturday 8th March 2015, the Women Welfare Committee celebrated the Women’s Day. Dr. T. N. More, Principal shared his views on contribution of women in the Indian culture. He said our Indian sub-continent is gradually emerging as a powerful land since women began playing significant role for the development of the nation. Role of woman in modern India can be called as phenomenal. The transition of woman from the past to present is worth mentioning. Women who were once thought of being only masters in the art of home making are now considered to be the forces that shape the country. He concluded by saying that the development of our country depends on the empowerment of women. A man and a woman are like two wheels of a cart. The cart can move fast and safely too, when both of them pull it in the same direction and with equal strength. Hence no developing country or society can afford to ignore the role of women, if they are to progress. Some faculties also expressed their feeling. Prof. Moti explained about new concept of “Individual Truth” and “Individual Identity” of women in the Postmodern age.
