Talking about how Pink Platform came into being, Kavita Raha explains, “Women are constantly balancing their time and priorities between home, children, spouse/ partner, and the workplace with each demanding their share of importance and attention. To add to it all, this constant act of juggling responsibilities is seen as being merely supportive in nature and often doesn’t receive adequate recognition. Between all of this, they get very little time or opportunity to cater to their own needs or discuss their problems and issues. And this is where pink Platform steps in.
Kavita Raha is raising funds via various auctions including a saree designed by Amy Billimoria A contemporary sari influenced by the various aspects of a modern woman… The net symbolizes the transparency of a woman’s heart… The embroidery is ornate and subtle resembling a jigsaw puzzle and the various roles played by a woman… The colors are a beautiful blend of gold and rose emphasizing the strong self and the little girl that always lives in a woman’s heart!
Lot of other support has been extended which is fruitful for the campaign.
