The theme this year is “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”. Sharing her life journey on the Prime Minister’s Twitter account @narendramodi, Sneha Mohandoss said inspired by her mother, who instilled the habit of feeding the homeless, she started the initiative called Foodbank India. She worked with volunteers many of whom were outside India for eradicating hunger. She urged everyone to feed at least one needy person and contribute to make a hunger-free planet. People have heard of food for thought and now, it is time for action to ensure a better future for the poor, Mohandoss added. Sharing herb story, Malvika Iyer says  that she survived a gruesome bomb blast at the age of 13 but she gets her PhD. ‘Giving up is never an option. Forget your limitations and take on the world with confidence and hope, ‘Malvika Iyer said. Yet, she worked and went on to get her PhD. Dr Iyer said, she believed that education is indispensable for change and there is a need to sensitize young minds about discriminatory attitudes.

Stating that giving up is never an option, Dr Malvika Iyer said, people should forget their limitations and take on the world with confidence and hope.
