Mumbai, Mar 1: The 27th of February saw great zest at ITC Grand Maratha, here, where the Kelvinator GR8 Women Awards were held. This was the 5 th year of the awards felicitating women from all walks of life, celebrating womanhood.
Said Anu Ranjan, Editor GR8, This is my favourite time of the year - the International Woman's Day. GR8 Has launched a campaign - BETI to help educate the country's population on the malpractice of female feoticide. On the one hand we worship goddess in 9 forms and on the other we kill our girl children in the wombs. So many of our girls are missing from our population. I urge all of you to fight this evil.
