The auditorium was packed to capacity with 1500 students representing 9 schools/colleges of Ajmer & Jaipur, teachers, VIPs and press. After lighting of the lamp Ms. Zila Khan gave a widely appreciated Sufi recital. This was followed by a passionate welcome and advocative address by Mr. Harpal Singh. Three skits/songs by students of Savitri, Sophia and Mayo schools followed which depicted the need for empowering girls and saving trees. These were very thought provoking and were highly appreciated.

The program ended with inspiring speeches by the Ministers. Mr. Khurshid addressing the gathering said both girls and trees needed protection and preservation for sustenance of life on Earth. “Both are Universal Mothers whose protection is vital and imperative”. Mr. Scindia said “Educating a woman is akin to educating her family”. Quoting former Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi he said “if you educate a man, you educate one person. But if you educate a woman you educate the entire family”. The event was covered very well in both electronic and print media with 20 press reports and coverage by Doordarshan, Aaj Tak and TV 99. About 2000 sapling were distributed to all.

Follow Up Program:

2. It was decided that colleges/schools will follow the Nanhi Chhaan objectives in villages and community through their social clubs.
