In an endeavour to awaken the abeyant consciousness of people and hence, eradicate female feticide, an exclusive 'women rally' on the theme - SWABHIMAN was conducted on International Women's Day on March 8, 2015 in the Vikaspuri area of West Delhi.
It was flagged of by MLA Vikaspuri Sh Mahender Yadav & was received by RWA representatives along with ex Councillor Mrs. Rajesh yadav.. it was further received by ex Nigam Parshad Mrs. Sarita Jindal. Sh. Jarnail Singh, MLA with other party representativesgreeted the rally & accompanied for few miles. Finally rally culminated at DJJS Udyan with Sh. Yash Pal Arya, Municipal Councillor & Chairman South MCD.
A rally is considered as the most informative mode of communication, particularly to spread social messages. During the march, the enthusiastic women participants of the rally, apart from holding banners & placards and chanting slogans to save girl child, distributed flyers to masses especially designed on the subject of elimination of female feticide. Further, Santulan team of DJJS Vikaspuri center attached special batches to women passing by the rally, as a token of greeting on International Women's Day & spread thousands of smiles. The rally benefitted more than 5000 people from households, markets and those moving on roads.
The statistics show that a large chunk of women have unwillingly accepted imposed subordination over themselves which is a sheer outcome of lack of confidence. Therefore it is imperative to motivate those who consider themselves worth nothing. Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji, head & founder of DJJS and the moving spirit behind Santulan renders holistic empowerment to women by igniting the much needed self-confidence through self-awakening, thereby making women realize their real self-worth.
