A 12 year old girl named ‘Khushi’ is a victim of HIV aids and is a green card holder. She is a victim of HIV aids because of her parents. When the teacher comes to know about it she treats Khushi with partiality and makes her sit aloof in the class away from other students. And when she questions her teacher about this behaviour towards her, she is scolded by the teacher. Khushi becomes frustrated and complains about to her doctor. The skit moves around this anguish of Khushi, who then makes her teacher realize her fault of considering HIV disease to be contagious and looking at HIV patient with contempt. • LEGAL AND SOCIAL AWARENESS PROGRAMME ON DOWRY PROBHITION ACT. 1961 A ‘Legal and Social Awareness Programme on Dowry Probhition Act. 1961” was organised on 19th December 2015.

Malati Pahade, President of the Rotary Club of Nagpur North Hills was also present for the function. Principal, Smt. Snehal Paldhikar in her introductory remarks greeted all for women’s day and expressed women are powerful by nature and hence do not need any external sources for their empowerment. All that they need is to be decisive for that. Addressing to the gathering the Chief Guest, Dr. Vrushali Joshi opined if education and education system is minutely observed it will become apparent that it has two roles to play – of ‘guru-tattva’ and ‘matru-tattva’. Both are the guiding force for a man’s development. A mother gives birth to a child, but a second birth happens through the ‘guru’. A teacher gives information, but the ‘guru’ gives true awareness and awakened intelligence. The ‘guru’ is God himself manifesting in a personal form to guide the aspiring students. She further compared a woman with the earth as both have the power of creating new life. And if this women power is on wrong notions, then destruction is inevitable, as to light a candle, you need a burning candle; likewise an illumined soul alone can enlighten another soul. On this occasion students, Padmaja Singh and Shraddha Shahu also expressed their views and Sayali Peshwe recited a poem of Shanta Shelke. The programme was anchored by Dr. Gayatri Tajne and Convener of Women Cell, Prof. Archana Gupta proposed a vote of thanks.
