2019 Women’s Day at Kumaraguru
Happy women’s day to all. This reminds us to be mindful of thoughts and actions. Women and men, the tangents are different. Tangents vary but the purpose remains one. To co-exist. To co-exist, we don’t shout out we the best. We work towards a peaceful co-existence. And on this day, an oath that every human will take to respect and support each other will be a bliss for the days to come. Our ability to love, reach out and experience is limitless and the only limitation to expand will be us. With mindfulness being the key, let’s move a step ahead and closer starting today.
In this regard, Pudhu Paavai club in association with iQube, KCT Business School and Sahitya has organised various events.

My home town was a small village in Delhi which is not miles away from the western air command. The planes roaring over the skies, the marches of people there, triggered me with a great enthusiasm. As a fortune I could come across a daily displaying a recruitment for IAF. The process went on and I was commissioned at 2010 in Air traffic control. And I have kept my life in rise until now by choice’’. She ended saying that women who make a choice to do, achieve come what may and encouraged all to make great choices in life.
