Celebrating International Literacy day and International Peace Day

Soroptimist International Club of Poona celebrated International Literacy Day and the International Day of Peace in their September meeting. Scholarship cheques were awarded to 15 deserving girl students pursuing different branches of study at the college level. The list included one visually impaired girl and one who had an amputated leg due to an accident last year. These cheques were handed out by the chief guest, Ms. Yashashwari, who gave a talk on ‘Raj Yoga for Students’. She explained how mental peace and meditation helps in developing concentration, whether in studies, sports or any other profession. One of our ex-students who has graduated in engineering and secured employment at a leading IT organization was also felicitated on the occasion.
