Durga Projects salutes women on International Women’s Day 2015

Women's day

While there are some significant barriers for women to achieve the gender parity we hope for, as we celebrate 107th Annual International Women’s day on 8th March, let us celebrate some of the huge successes woman have had in last couple of decades:

1) More women Billionaires
2015 was a record breaking year for female billionaires with 197 women in 2015 rankings. In just three years, the number of female billionaires have grown by 90% in the list. This clearly shows the impact woman are having on the economy of the world. One newcomer in the list is Elizabeth Holmes, who at 31, is also the youngest self-made billionaire in the world.

Five Indian women are part of Forbes billionaires list this year. Also, six Indian women are part of the Forbes Top 50 list of “Asia’s Power Businesswoman 2015”.

2)Women Entrepreneurs
Women are becoming more and more enterprising and are responsible for lot of new job creations and economic growth in the country. There are more and more women from rural and urban areas who are becoming successful entrepreneurs breaking all caste, religion, gender and other barriers. As per statistics India’s female entrepreneurs are becoming more confident with more woman finding opportunities to start their ventures (60%).

3) Corner office for Women
More and more women are getting into C band roles compared to just few years back. At least 80% of the companies in India say they are preparing more women for senior management roles. SEBI has mandated that every listed company in India should have at least one woman board member. Majority of the financial institutions in India today are driven by women and there are several role models in pretty much every industry.

With the theme of “Make It Happen” in 2015, let’s encourage effective action for advancing and recognizing women while calling for greater equality.

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”

Durga Projects invites Padmashree EAS Prasanna at Petals Experience Center

Meet EAS Prasanna at Durga Petals

In the spirit of nurturing the young at heart and the younger ones and to inspire them to play and learn the technical aspects of Cricket, Durga Projects is inviting the legendary spinner Padamshree EAS Prasanna at the Petals Experience Center to interact with his fans. EAS Prasanna will be visiting the Petals Experience Center on all India match days as well as in the Quarters, Semis and Finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup. This is an open event and everyone is invited to meet with EAS Prasanna, watch the match highlights and analyze it along with him.

The first such event was held on 22nd Feb, on the day of India Vs. South Africa match. It was an excellent evening with the very young at heart EAS Prasanna. The celebrations were even more special as it was the first victory of India over South Africa in the ICC World Cup. The Durga Petals team organized a quiz around the life and achievements of Shri Prasanna as well as interesting facts around World Cup. The entire event was very interactive with Shri Prasanna answering all kinds of questions from the large number of people who turned up for this wonderful evening. The questions ranged from the current form of Indian cricket team to technical aspects of bowling to even the most difficult format of cricket today.

Everyone participated in the quiz with enthusiasm and with the hope to win amazing prizes. The second prize in the Cricket Quiz was won by a very young cricket enthusiast of just 8 years of age and he was given a personally autographed ball by Shri Prasanna which can only be an inspiration to our new generation. The first prize was won by a huge fan of Shri Prasanna and was absolutely delighted to win an autographed bat from him.

The evening culminated after the entire crowd had snacks and tea and had another opportunity to have an informal chat with Shri Prasanna.

The next event is scheduled for 6th March with a very exciting India vs. West Indies match at hand. The future of Indian cricket is bright and this is a small gesture from Durga Petals to inspire all cricket enthusiasts.
