Talk on “From Teenage to Womanhood”
The main session on the theme “From Teenage to Womanhood” was handled by Smt Vidhubala. She very beautifully pointed out the various value points in life by connecting them to her own real life stories. She remarked that one of the greatest realization in life should be to understand where one stood in life. Our values were not determined by others but by ourselves. We should uphold a good self esteem. Only then as women we would be able to demand value from others. Just as things might go wrong, we should also have the courage to accept it and say a sorry too. Following the narration of her experiences, there was an interactive session for the audience.
