Speaking at the occasion, Shaina NC said “An insecure man is a bad influence on any woman’s life. Also having a supportive female in the house is helpful. This can be your mother or your mother-in-law. When I Joined BJP, many people thought why I joined this party and not Congress. I liked the secularism that BJP stands for and hence I joined this party”.

Alka Yagnik who had spent a considerable amount of her childhood and growing up years in Kolkata said “My connection with the city is strong and it will stay so forever. When I was a student at Modern High School, I used to resent the fact that they used to teach us Sanskrit, Bengali, Hindi and English. But later when I used to sing songs in different languages, it was immensely helpful. I could pronounce each word clearly and I never had trouble with the diction”.

Shaina NC who started various styles of draping the sari lamented the fact that while many of us may appreciate foreigners wearing saris, most of us give this traditional dress a miss in our day to day lives. “I feel like chiding those individuals who say they will wear a gown at their wedding. I mean why? The sari is beautiful attire and it helps to make a lady look sensuous. We must try and wear it as much as possible” said the ace designer.

Alka Yagnik, while discussing about her struggles as a singer said “I never had that kind of struggle as to what I will eat or where I will stay. My struggle was different. I had to make my name in an industry where new comers were not appreciated much in those times. Now the scenario is different though. Hence, you see my struggle was of a different kind altogether”.

The session kept the audience engrossed and also spread positivity among the audiences which consisted mostly of women.
