The live got a whooping 1000 views that evening with more viewers tuning in to watch the recorded sessions later.
Firstly to make this event interesting for all ages we had a variety of segments including beauty, fitness, inspiring stories, health, talent shows, and more. The event started with Kaapi & Kadhaippu, a fun talk show with all women participants of course. The highlight of the event was Mayor Khan’s special inspiring speech for us on International Women’s Day! We would like to thank Mayor Khan for her well-articulated and motivational speech and for answering some questions submitted by our viewers. Another highlight of this talk show was the participation of Ms. Aruljothi Muralidharan, Former Director of North Carolina Tamil Sangam and a cancer researcher and her talk about women rights and freedom.
The other interesting and fun segments included everyday makeup tips where makeup artist Subathra showed us some tips and tricks for an everyday clean look to look presentable and neat.
Deeparani Murugan who is a fan of Bharathiyaar wowed us with her flawless recital of his most popular verses along with an impressive explanation.
Next, to stress the importance of women’s health and how important it is for women to take care of themselves, we had arranged a special Q& A session with Dr Rohini Thothala. Dr Rohini answered all questions submitted by our viewers very patiently and in detail.
Next, we presented the top 6 winning entries
for our talent show contest. We got a tremendous response to our talent contest and had a tough time picking the winners. Please see pictures and watch videos to see the impressive & unique talent videos that made it to the final six. We wholeheartedly thank our participants for your spirit and enthusiasm that you displayed in all your videos.
