In advancing women’s rights and innovation in the legal fraternity she has proven that gender does not determine leadership potential. Working collectively with other office bears, she is building a gender-balanced society.
I was most fortunate to have been bestowed with the Gaurav Sammaan Award in the presence of Hon’ble Shri. Pradeep Choudhary, Member of Parliament. It is an immense pleasure to be honored by this glorious institution, that has widely created awareness of the rights enshrined in the Constitution of India to its citizens in the most democratic manner virtually even during the pandemic era.
