In an effort to welcome women of excellence in diverse fields and inspire youngsters, Soroptimists International, a global service club of women honoured certain eminent personalities as honorary members of their service club.
Theatre artiste Arundhati Nag, sportswoman Ashwini Nachappa, writer Anita Nair and educationist and founder of ‘Parikrama’, Shukla Bose were recently felicitated.
The aim of the event was to inspire younger women and take forward their mission of social service, development and networking with professional women.
On the occasion, Ashwini Nachappa said, “Sports is a great way to bridge the gap and inspire women in our country. There are a lot of potential sportswomen in our country. I look at the honour as a stepping stone to bridge the gap between welfare for women and sports.”
