I truly feel overwhelmed with the euphoric response that the event has evoked. The key idea was to honour all those women achievers and senior personalities who have made a marked difference to the society with their tireless and committed contribution in their respective fields. Heartfelt gratitude to my entire team, friends and relations, members of the media fraternity, sponsors who fully supported me in my endeavour. It would be incomplete to not make a mention of the divine blessings of Guruji that have been bestowed on me because of whom I could successfully host such a mega stature event.
