India had one of the first women Prime Ministers in the world.
In India’s ancient history of more than 10,000 years, women have been known to be in powerful and vitally important positions in society.
Yet it is a fact that most of the women in India today, are not educated and are not able to fully develop their potential.
The Government of India and specifically the State Government of Manipur, has now decided that it is important to make the women of rural India aware of the dangers that are present in the matter of the deadly Bird-Flu virus.
Underlying the importance of women in Manipuri society in taking up various social issues, All Manipur Nupi Marup organised a State Level Awareness programme on Bird flu for womenfolk at State Museum Hall, Imphal today.
Health and Family Welfare Minister P Parijat attended the inaugural function of the awareness programme as chief guest and president of Nupi Marup I Ibeni as functional president.
Additional Director of Health Th Biren Singh was the resource person of the awareness programme attended by around 150 women coming from different parts of the State.
