Rev Dr Ronald Cutinha, Director of Samanvaya briefed the gathering on the topic and introduced the renowned lawyer, Mr Shirtady William Pinto to the audience.  Sr Prema Gonsalves of Bethany Sewa Kendra and Mr Santhosh Shetty, a localite wished the programme all success. Mrs Sefiya, a local leader took part and was on the dais.

Mr Shirtady William Pinto, the resource person took on the audience.  He began his address stating that God among others, created human beings also and having created man & woman, He gave them certain rights and responsibilities to live in this world.  He then touched the main topic of Indian Constitution and Human Rights which is the ultimate instrument to safeguard the interest of every human being in our Country. He first explained that “Rights” mean those freedoms which are essential for personal good as well as the good of the community.  He then spoke in detail of the 6 human rights out of 30 prevailing in our country viz. (1) men and women, black or white or any other color, are ALL equal; (2) freedom of speech; (3) freedom of religion; (4) freedom of opinion and expression; (5) right for food & shelter; (6) the right to start our own business in any part of the world.

The participants, who were ignorant of the facts, realized the importance of being responsible and dignified citizens of the country and expressed gratitude for the knowledge imparted. Ms Latha, a social worker compered the programme, 41 women attended and appreciated the education they availed from the day’s training.
