Women's NGO adopts mentally challenged child : Mysore ( Karnataka )

There are many women organizations in the city to empower and motivate women. But Samaskruthi, a women's organization here, works for mentally retarded children and that's a first for the city.

Samskruthi president Sridevi S Bhopalam said, "On Wednesday, we're adopting a mentally challenged child Aishwarya, who is 13 years old, from Swasahaya Samuchhaya. As she lost her father and her mother is not employed, we decided to take care of her and educate her. We plan to adopt two more mentally challenged children, provide all basic facilities and educate them," she added.

Deputy director of the police academy Dharani Devi Malagathi said, "Earlier, women wouldn't get an education and didn't pay attention to higher studies. Now, girl students have many choices and some choose even tough subjects like automobile engineering."

She added, "I think women should be engaged in work, fight for their rights and the society should empower them. In the early days, employment was not a problem but today it's a problem, especially for women."

The assistant director of the department of Kannada and culture (Mysore) Nirmala Matapathi said, "There are many members from other states. The organization will hold sessions to teach them to speak, write and read in Kannada in 30 days. Earlier, if a woman did creative work, men would start doing it too to show they can do better than the women. In this association, I can see the unity among women and all other women associations should emulate them."

Variety fare

At the Samaskruthi inaugural function, women displayed their own products from different companies in 11 stalls such as Geethanjali Jewelleries, food and nutrition, Pakwa restaurant, Tupperware collections, Vaishnavi collections, Arogyasri ayurveda career counseling, Arun fine arts, Vedic mathematics, Uni-city bio-life, Unique jewellers (gold coating on silver jewellery and reliance trends.
