Geeta Chhabra's letter to her Readers



23rd January 2019

My dear Readers,


I wish the year of 2019 to be joyous and healthy for all of us.


On Tuesday, 15th January 2019, I attended the premiere of my daughter – Vibha Bakshi’s documentary film: SON RISE supported by UN Women at the India Habitat Centre-Delhi.  In a world that is still dominated by men, SON RISE is an inspiring documentary about gender equality. The film is based on the land of Khap Panchayat in Haryana-India, where ordinary men have taken on the 'extraordinary' fight to change the narrative of gender equality.  The audience gave a standing ovation, and the pledge for SON RISE is soaring in numbers.  As I write, the numbers have reached 2,20,396. Here’s to all the incredible people all over the world who are making change happen!  Thanks to UN & Nishita.
