Geethya Poduval lauds PRCI
BENGALURU: The Bengaluru chapters of PRCI and YCC celebrated the Daughters’ Day to raise awareness about providing equal opportunities to the girl child. Impressed by the initiative, Ms Nagambika Devi, Karnataka Principal Secretary Sports and Youth Affairs, announced support to PRCI to take the programme to Tier 2 and 3 Towns to help raise awareness levels there.
Acknowledging the fact that it was because of her father’s encouragement that she was able to achieve her ambitions, Ms Devi  urged parents to push their children out of their comfort zone , so they can learn and grow the hard way. “It is difficult for parents to let their kids out of their protective cover, but it is essential for their growth” she observed.

 Lamenting the fact that girls often face hurdles to move up the ladder of opportunities in life, noted film actress and stage and TV anchor Geetha Poduval called for a change at the grassroot level.
 “As a society, we must remove the barriers in education itself and begin to treat girls and boys at par,” she said in her keynote address and wondered as to why there should be any differentiation or preferential treatment to anyone. Preference to one should not lead to indifference to another, she remarked.
“Everyone has a dream, but what is important is that we develop courage and acquire strength to realize it,” she said and quoted her own example: “There was Art inside me, and I had to do justice to that.”
Geetha was all praise to PRCI for the Daughters’ Day initiative as she expressed hope that the drive will one day move the needle on cause of the girl child.

PRCI Chairman Emeritus and Chief Mentor M B Jayaram said the Council always addressed social issues through meaningful communication and the Daughters’ Day initiative is one among them. “We have been taking up issues on global platforms through our conclaves,” he said.
