The event started with the performance of women farmers from different Self-Help Groups (SHG) under the Shubh Mint program. The women from the SHG groups presented a group song and performed a role play that showcased day to day work of women farmers and the difficulties faced during work at the field.

This celebration is to respect their efforts.”
