A view of the Programme

International Women's Day was celebrated at IEI with total enthusiasm and whole hearted participation in a unique way. The day commenced with a visit to Paripurnata- Half Way Home - for mentally challenged women and quality time was spent understanding their activities. All the lady employees of IEI interacted with the resident inmates and token gifts were presented. This was followed by interactive session on “Time Management- balance between work place and home “facilitated by Mrs Nandita Palchowdhury, Social Entrepreneur & External External Member of ICC and Mrs. Soma Bhattacharyya. The session was an interesting exchange of experiences and ideas about balancing career and family. Maj. Gen. Dr. S Bhattacharyya VSM(Retd.), SDG, Dr. Anil Kumar, DDG, Dr. S M Ali, D (M), Ms Shukla Das, D (A), Dr. J Saxena–D (EE&A), Mr. J Saha-D(F) and Mr. S Chowdhury-DD(T) addressed all the participants in the concluding session and made a goal of not letting the Women's Day disappear after 8th March but to continue the initiative to return back to the society/community.
