69th Republic Day was celebrated at Our 5 welfare centres i.e., Ahata Kidara, Shalimar Bagh, Narela, Vikas Puri and Jagat Puri with zest, pride, and patriotic warmth in their premises. The celebration began with flag hoisting by team leaders and National Anthem. A variety of cultural programs like solo dance, group dance, singing songs, drama and poem recitation by children and women of our families mesmerized the audience. Poster making competition at Narela centre , lemon race at Jagat Puri centre, Fancy dress & cooking competition at Shalimar Bagh and heart touching nuked Natak about the sensitive issues like Female Foeticide and Eve Teasing at Ahata Kidara were the main attractions of the day. Dr. Sushi Singh, Vice President, PFWS and Chief Guest of the celebration at Ahata Kidara centre, after flag hoisting ceremony, motivated the youth for hard work & also invited them for active participation in the events like Mission Olympics and skill development programs. She also highlighted the role of women in nation building through their sacrifices, hard work & dedication. Dr. Sushi Singh also passed on the message sent by President PFWS, Mrs. Suchana Patnaik on the occasion of Republic day. A Two-Minute Silence was observed at all centres to condole the untimely death of a very dear PFWS member, Smt Kiranmani Tripathi who left for her heavenly abode. The function ended with a cry of ‘JAI-HIND' that resounded in the air and sweets were distributed amongst the residents.
