FICCI LADIES ORGANISATION, Jaipur Chapter, under the leadership of its Chairperson Shweta Chopra, organized a virtual session on Combatting Challenges with Actress, Writer, Producer and Social Worker - Nandita Das, and Co-Founder and Director of Wizcraft Sabbas Joseph. This event was streamed online for the members to view. The subject was very apt with the current times. Today’s event was a finale of the “VIRTUAL IS THE NEW YOU” series launched by FLO Jaipur chapter. A Talent competition and a photography session has already been conducted in this virtual series.

Nandita Das has faced many challenges in her earlier life. She even launched a campaign called “Dark is Beautiful” which she relaunched as “India’s Got Color” in 2019. She has acted in over 40 films in 10 different languages.

Sabbas Joseph is the co-founder of the pioneer event management company which has grown in the last 30 years. Wizcraft is the founder and creator of IIFA Awards. Just before the lockdown, Wizcraft managed the Namaste Trump spectacular in Ahmedabad.

According to Nandita we are all fortunate to be safe in the luxury of our homes. Her heart went out to the not so privileged workers who have been rendered homeless and hungry because of the lockdown. Women are juggling in between lots of roles during this lockdown. She said that it’s easier to give kids Gadgets and keep them busy, but we should introduce them to creativity, art and language too.

Sabbas said, “I am not in so much pressure as I don’t believe I am at the top. I am a constant learner.”

Member actively participated in the first-ever interactive online session of FLO Jaipur Chapter. Their questions were also taken and answered by the speaker. The lockdown has locked us at home, but FLO has taken an endeavor to spread learning through the social media.

Both said that travelling is good learning, and they are missing this learning experience in this lockdown. They even talked about climate change and it’s in our control by consuming less and living simply.

The winners of FLO’s Got Talent were announced. This competition was held amongst the members in the series “Virtual is the New You!” Members sent in videos of their talent during the lockdown. Also, the winner of another competition “Combatting Challenge” in the same series was announced. In this competition, the members sent in the biggest challenge they faced in their life and how they overcame it.

Shweta Chopra, Chairperson FLO Jaipur Chapter mentioned that the Change of Guard event will take place on May 10th, where Ms Wandana Parnami would take over the reign of the chapter from Shweta in the presence of Ms. Neeta Ji Boochra, Founder chairperson of the organization. This is the first time that a virtual Change of Guard will take place. All Chapters of FLO across the country would be having their virtual CoG in the period of these 3.
