A Dialogue with Sri Sri on, How can we create a Harmonious Society?
Women are the backbone of any society. Their role in the development of a society is of utmost importance. In fact, it is the key criterion that determines the strength and harmony in a society. Yet, women are constantly searching for answers to the multitude of issues that hinder their progress and peace of mind.
When solutions are infused with human values, when they bring together people from all walks of life and create a sense of belongingness, only then can a violence-free and stress-free society emerge where women are given due regard, respect and importance.
From Trauma relief, women safety, human rights, environmental care to fashion, media and film-making, the discussion is between women who have dedicated themselves to that field and a spiritual Master venerated world over for His wisdom and has the promise of being eye-opening and thoroughly engaging.
This event will highlight solutions and add new perspectives to the challenges we face with a focus on strengthening the resolve for peace, harmony and leadership in women.
