When women 'survivors' walked the ramp
In a fashion show organised on April 19, women, who have faced, and are still facing social atrocities (including acid attack survivors), walked the ramp with other models in beautiful outfits by designer Sumona Parekh.
The evening, titled 'Ashmita' at Kamal Mahal, ITC Maurya, was hosted by Sundeep Chadha, Smriti Gupta, Rita Srivastav and Ramesh Arora – founders Karmsakshi Sewa Sansthan and Swawlamban.
Dignitaries like Meenakshi Lekhi – MP Lok Sabha and National Spokesperson BJP, Dr Shobha Vijender – Councillor, Neelam Rudy, Sitaar Player Ustaad Shujaat Khan, Tejram Phore – Councillor, Padam Shri Kathak Maestro Shovana Narayan and Shahnaz Husain were present on the occasion to honour these women.
Sundeep and Smriti, Founders Karmsakshi Sewa Sansthan and Swawlamban, said, "There is an urge to do something meaningful for this cause as both the organizations have experienced the agony and plight of the acid attack victims in the course of doing their social service works."
According to Aashmeen Munjaal of Star Salon Academy, "Real beauty lies in the soul of a human and not on skin." The event was choreographed by Liza Verma and the makeup partner for the event was Aashmeen Munjaal.
