Reported by Rtn. Sk. Abdul Hadi

"I attended SWAYAM SIDDHA 7 - the felicitating ceremony for women who have fought against all odds to reach the height of success in their careers on 8th March 2013 organized by the Rotary Club of Calcutta Metro City, RID-3291, at Rotary Sadan, Kolkata to celebrate the International Women’s Day. Seven successful ladies of West Bengal were felicitated.

Many thanks to Rtn. Shyamashree Sen for cordially inviting me to attend and  to enjoy the essence of womanhood.  I am very grateful for being introduced with the audience and for being honoured with a memento as souvenir.  RI Director Shekhar Mehta, galaxy of PDGs, Rotarians and elite of the city enjoyed the programme.  The numbers of total audiences were about 500.  The ceremony ended with cultural program and fellowship."
