The Honb'le Vice President of India, Mr. Hamid Ansari, celebrated World Womens' Day on 8th March 2017 by launching a book aptly called “AWAKEN THE MAGIC". Compiled and edited by Ms. Aparna Samuel Balasundaram and Ms. JyotikaBedi.  It is a compilation of true stories of women who had showed exemplary courage and strength of character   to overcome deprivations, abuse and many kinds of ill treatment but emerged victorious.  SAMADHAN's story of one of the mothers of a child with intellectual disability, who survived the community and family's lack of support as well as the impact of poverty is one such story and is titled "Compassionate Love”.

Mrs. Salma Ansari who had actively supported this compilation and has written the foreword for the book was the gracious hostess. We acknowledge our gratitude and thanks to the Vice President and Mrs. Salma Ansari as well as editors of the book.

Copies of the book will be available soon.
