“She Unlimited” By Red FM: “Womentors of Odisha” Share Their Stories On Overcoming Odds; 9 Unsung Women Achievers Felicitated


Bhubaneswar: The four-day gala event “She Unlimited” organised by Red FM Odisha at Esplanade One Mall in Bhubaneswar to celebrate the International Women’s Day concluded on Tuesday.

The event “Womentors of Odisha” witnessed an interactive session in which five ultimate women mentors of Odisha from different fields shared their stories on overcoming all odds to be where they are and how every woman should focus on being self-dependent and carve a space for herself.

The inspiring Womentors – Smriti Sweta Das, Founder & MD, Eco Belleza Chain of Salon (Lifestyle), Rashmi Sahoo, Director, Om Oil & Flour Mills Ltd & Founder of Frozit (FMCG), Sofia Firdos, Director, Metro Group (Infrastructure), Mrs. Madhusmita Tripathy, Director, Hi-Tech Group (Health Care) and Meghna Mishra, Actor (Entertainment), presented their views on the topic  “Woman: Born To Lead”.

In order to make society a better place, one needs to step out of the house. When a woman comes to the forefront of society, she becomes the topic of discussion for everyone. Ignoring those hurdles, those who move forward, are the ones to grab the success. A woman has a significant role to play be it kitchen, battlefield, or journey to space, they said.

Womens’ place is much higher in society because she is the one who makes herself able to cope with every adversity. As the saying goes, “Behind every successful man there is a woman”. Women and men are equally important to society. Therefore, not only on Women’s Day, they should always be treated with respect, the guests opined.

The event was followed by the felicitation of nine Unsung Women Achievers who are doing incredible work in their respective fields in Odisha. This apart, the women employees of Esplanade One Mall were also felicitated.

On the occasion, three women journalists of Odia Daily “Pragativadi”, Banita Sahoo, Debashree Balabantaray, and Sarala Sahu were also felicitated for their contribution in the field of Journalism.
