Founder, Parichay Foundation Rosalin Patasani Mishra, said, “Parichay has always stood for women empowerment and Aarya Awards is our tribute to all women who are scripting their own success and inspiring stories from different fields. This year, we have also brought to limelight a few such women who have been doing exemplary work in different fields but stayed away from the archlights. We wanted to give a new ‘Parichay’ to them. We have also tried to make the young working women feel special because they are our future. That apart, we wanted to celebrate the power of our women from Odisha but we were not keen to get confined to the boundaries of the state. That’s the reason many of our achievers had come from different parts of the country and also one from London. The jury and committee members of Parichay had taken all these factors into consideration while choosing the final list of awardees.”
Shri Kailash Satyarthi said, “I am proud of the good work Parichay Foundation is doing under the leadership of its dynamic founder Rosalin Patasani Mishra. I wish the foundation good luck for all their projects, including the Alaknanda Scholarship programme for drop-out girl students. I was also happy to felicitate all the women
