Santulan acknowledges women triumph through ‘10th Annual Santulan Awards’, commemorates International Women’s Day 2019

April 11, 2019

Woman has the power to create, nurture and transform. She is the engine of the enriching society but woefully, her laudable contribution is overlooked that sometimes results into loss of her air of self assurance. Therefore against this backdrop, Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, under the banner of its Gender Equality Program 'Santulan', venerates such ambitious, zealous and quintessential women, who bring a change in the society and inspire others, by conducting Annual Santulan Awards every year in the month of March. Echoing the UN’s International Women’s Day 2019 theme of ‘balance for better’, the organization is bringing off the ‘Annual Santulan Awards’ for the 10th consecutive time in different regions of India inspiriting the fighter inside a woman and recognizing her exceptional contribution in the society. 

“Any society that fails to harness the energy and creativity of its women is at a huge disadvantage in the modern world” says Tian wei, the famous host of an international debate program- ‘world Insight with Tian Wei’. And to implement the said statement it is important to reinstate the lost glory of womanhood and re-strike the lost Gender Balance not just in numbers but also in value, respect, regard and leadership too. Santulan strives to attain the same through its efficacious annual awards’ initiative.

The monumental event at Rangoli Mandap, Meerut on March, 31st , 2019 was graced by the presence and participation of honorable chief guest Mr. Padam (Kshetriya Prachar Pramukh, RSS, West UP) and guest(s) of honor Mr. R.K. Singh (Additional Commissioner, commercial tax (Grade 1), Kanpur), Dr. Ravinder (Principal Scientist-ICAR). Mr. Gaurav Maheshwari (Managing Director, Tawari Builders and Promoters Pvt. Ltd.), Mr. Sudhir Mittal (Charted Accountant, S.K.M. Consultants Pvt. Ltd.), Mr. Brij Bhushan Gupta (Prabandhak, Annapurna Charitable Hospital), Mrs Rammu Sharma (Coordinator- Dewan Public School) and Mrs. Mithilesh Tomar (Kshetriya Adhyaksh, Sewa Bharti Matr Mandal). The event set out with lamp lighting by the chief guest and DJJS representatives. It was followed by an exclusive and distinctive theatrical workshop based on the eye-opening life story of none other than “Amrapali”- a woman who transformed from being an abandoned & unwanted child to an exceptionally talented dancer, to a warrior and finally to a Saint.

The theatrical workshop inclusive of dance ballet and skit was divided into five parts showcasing the five phases of Amrapali’s life. Each part was beautifully delineated by Sadhvi Lokesha Bharti ji, daughter disciple of H.H Ashutosh Maharaj Ji. Sadhvi Ji threw light on the concept of nonage by Immanuel Kant and said that nonage is the imposed inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. All the disadvantaged people including poor, sick, handicaps, etc comes under the category of nonage and sadly, today woman is also being considered as nonage by the society. Sadhvi Ji laid emphasis on the need of spiritual empowerment that can emancipate a woman from all of her inabilities and re-establish her lost glory. She said that today women are not just required to be educationally and economically empowered but spiritually empowered too. Amrapali experienced educational empowerment, social empowerment, economic empowerment and political empowerment in her life but attained supreme contentment only after being blessed with the spiritual empowerment in the divine refuge of Mahatma Buddh.

Mrs. Atul Sharma (Director, Sankalp Shiksha Prasar Samiti), Ms. Nidhi Malik (Principal, St. Xavier’s World School, Meerut), Mrs. Kalpna Pandey (Driector, Jila Horticulture Sarkari Vipnan Sangh Limited), Ms. Prachi Mishra (Principal, Geetanjali Public School), Mrs. Neha Sharma (Entrepreneur), Ms. Meetu Proothi (Social Worker), Mrs. Indu Madan (Entrepreneur), Mrs. Rubi Rastogi (Social Worker) and Ms. Anuradha Agarwal (Social Worker) were presented with 10th Annual Santulan Awards for their exemplary performance emblematic of women empowerment.

Sadhvi Lokesha Bharti Ji-Coordinator of Meerut centre of DJJS extended a thank you note to the chief guest, guest of honor and the distinguished audience. The awardees expressed their appreciation towards DJJS endeavors with a commitment to support organization’s ongoing women oriented campaigns. The event was concluded with an awareness-creating exhibition followed with high tea and a group photo session.
