Ambassador Vijay Nambiar, Former PR Ambassador Hardeep Puri, Ambassador Mrs. Lakshmi Puri, Assistant SecretaryGeneral of the United Nations and Deputy Executive Director of UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, attended the event.

Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador Das said she was overwhelmed by the warm welcome and assurances of support.
