Dibrugarh, March 7: The month-long training camp on tailoring organized by Rural Self Employment Training Institute (RSETI), UBI, at the UBI premises, concluded on Wednesday with handing over of certificates to 30 women participants who attended the training programme.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Commissioner Laya Madduri appreciated the participants for their willingness to join the programme. She expressed hope that the programme was able to generate confidence in them, and at the same time, spoke highly of the determition they showed by attending the training session for a month, leaving aside their routine affairs. Madduri also urged them to use their innovative power while applying the acquired knowledge for their welfare. She, however, maintained that it was not necessary for each one of them to emerge as an industrialist. Even if they could use the knowledge for sustaining their families, it would be useful, she asserted.
Addressing the gathering, senior jourlist Ikbal Ahmed underscored the inte talent the people of Assam, especially women, had in the field of cloth-making. He referred to the famous instance of Gandhiji praising the Assamese women for their weaving skills during his visit to the State to support his opinion. Ahmed, who attended the event as a guest, also spoke about the virtues of perseverance and professiolism in the domain of business, and urged the participants to exhibit the same when they start their individual business operations.
