International Women’s Day

We organized the International Women's Day at the Auditorium of Chandigarh Club Ltd., Sector-1, Chandigarh on Saturday, 21st March 2015. This is a step taken for raising awareness and creating a positive space in society for disability and women's issues. The deaf women are doubly disadvantaged first by disability and second with the added vulnerability of their gender. We saw a gathering of around 75 deaf women. We invited the Deaf Women Lecturer Smt. Geeta Sharma, Women Secretary, National Association of the Deaf, Chief Guest of Honour Sh. Sanjay Tandon, President of Bharatiya Janta Party Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Smt. Heera Negi, Ex-Senior Deputy Mayor Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Shri Devi Singh, Zila President of Bharatiya Janta Party, Chandigarh, Chief Guest of Honour Sh. Sanjay Tandon, President of Bharatiya Janta Party Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Smt. Heera Negi, Ex-Senior Deputy Mayor Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Shri Devi Singh, Zila President of Bharatiya Janta Party Chandigarh and guest of Honour Shri Jasjeet Singh, Director of Mansukh, Investment & Trading Solutions Chandigarh.

The seminar started with the welcome note by Mrs. Reena Jain, NAD's North India Deaf Woman Committee and performed the inspiration game about fist signing. Mrs. Geeta Sharma, Woman Secretary of NAD explained about the problems of ISLRTC merging with NIHH and what is the benefit of ISLRTC. Chief Guest of Honour Sh. Sanjay Tandon, President of Bharatiya Janta Party Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Smt. Heera Negi, Ex-Senior Deputy Mayor Chandigarh, Guest of Honour Shri Devi Singh, Zila President of Bharatiya Janta Party, Chandigarh spoke the praise for deaf women wonderfully work well for themselves which they could not see deaf women who are brave before. Guest of Honour Prof (Dr.) Vikas Singh (Campus Director) Chandigarh Group of College talked about domestic violence etc.

The last session was taken by Ms. Nirupama Kaul, Co-Worker of NAD's North India Deaf Woman on "Emotional Intelligence" where the ability to understand others and act wisely in human relations was discussed along with the functioning of our brain, that during a situation that triggers us, it tends to leave us with less space to think and act wisely.

These two topics had never been discussed before on the event of International Women's Day. It was a refreshing and an eye opener to all the participants. We concluded the seminar by cutting the cake and celebrating the day.
