  • "I am attending ICA (Indians for Collective Actions) for the first time - as I’m writing this. Very impressive.  This year is the focus on Women’s Cause and ICA has made a significant difference through its donations to various NGOs. Kudos to the current and past leaders of the organization from the IITK community — Abhay-ji, Reshma, Anjali, and Namita.

    GeOne of the keynote address was by Radha Karnad (daughter of famous actor Girish Karnad) - very inspiring to hear her story about her journey from India to the US to India and now to Kenya with a focus on reducing women’s fatality rate during childbirth.

    Amazing event indeed and very inspiring! Kudos to all volunteers and out IIT members who were there helping with the event! Takes many helping hands to pull together something like this..."
