Dean Dr. Simerjeet Kaur appreciated the efforts of Mrs. Sucheta who possesses dint of sterling qualities in rendering selfless yeoman service in the arena of Judicial Administration and applauded her for successfully handling legal cases at National and International Level. She expressed her concern that it is a pity that in 21st century, women who play pivotal role in all walks of life are portrayed as weaker sex, gullible and subject of desire who are easily subjugated and ruled by male chauvinist mind set who think that they have a right to outrage her modesty.
It is heartwarming to mention that seminar was a grand success!!!
