International Women’s Day in Torpa

On the 19th March we celebrated International Women’s day in Torpa.    About 2200 women from Rania and Torpa block participated in this event (many of them along with their small children). The theme for the program was “Agricultural livelihood in connection with migration and human trafficking”.  Many of these women had walked 8 to 9 k.m from their villages  and then some transport was  organized  to reach them to  the venue.  The program started at 10 O’clock.  Women had composed awareness songs, prepared street plays and did traditional dancing.

The main Speaker Dr. Kiran Singh Director KVK Syraykola (Jamshedpur) in her speech highlighted the wealth that we have in Jharkhand and she also guided the women with many innovative ideas in improved agriculture.   She also mentioned that women played a very important role in the Indian agricultural economy.  She added that without women’s contribution agriculture will be lost.

There were many other dignitaries like the Zilla Parishad Officer, District Collector and SDO, representatives of Torpa Pramukh (chief), and the media were present for the program.  In their speeches they all commented on the excellent performance of women through their awareness songs, plays and dances and appreciated their contribution in the family for their livelihood.   Some of them invited women to stop human trafficking of youth from the villages.
An exhibition was also part of the program. The trainees of the different departments had put up an exhibition of the garments, handicraft items, agricultural product etc which they had made.
The program ended at 2 p.m with a meal for everyone.
