    That is really a good initiative, I support the event very much because it is for empowerment of women which is very needed round the globe, and also because it is promoting handicraft industry which is in real danger.
    Both the cause is very much required thanks and hats off to the initiative of the Empowerment Center for Women (ECW); also I would like to thank you for sharing the news with us.
