“I just want to sleep. A coma would be nice. Or amnesia. Anything, just to get rid of this, these thoughts, whispers in my mind” – this was not the case with NIRBHAYA and any woman of today.
Nirbhaya the name that unites the nation together. Today 14th December 2019, Wess & Spectra Genie collaborated with Ansal University, Gurugram to celebrate the spirit of Nirbhaya to fight all odds by organizing ‘Leaders Conclave’ at Sushant School of Business (SSB), Ansal University, Gurugram. The event witnessed eminent people coming together from various walks of life to salute the spirit of a woman. We had heads of the Schools, Colleges, Doctors, Lawyers, Corporate Heads, Individuals from various walks of life. Womanhood involves love, affection, care and power that grace our lives in forms of mother, sister, wife, daughter and friend.

Mr. Dayma appreciated the work of WESS to make Gurugram a safe place to be. Various speakers talked about that it’s not the training and skills that make women courageous to fight things out but the mind has to be strong. Education by a university and safety training by WESS works in that direction. Ms. Ila Longani mentioned ‘we should be less judgmental and should carry an attitude of live and let live’. Ms. Veena emphasized the importance of parenting and imparting the right values to child till the age of five and make the girl child mentally strong.
A series of activities were planned that had women in the epicenter- Panel Discussion on ‘Truth v/s Myth of Women Empowerment’, Cyber Crime, Safety on Road and health awareness on Menopause and Breast Cancer. Zumba and Nail art classes retreated that beauty and bravery are two sides of the same women. The endless candles in the courtyard were illuminated as a symbol of remembering Nirbhaya and celebrating the spirit of truth.
There may be whispers about the imminent hangings of the four men convicted of the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder and are getting stronger with each passing day but the women of today has to be empowered to stop the menace around. A lot of work needs to be done, hope leaders present today will take it forward.
