What doesn’t kill you ONLY makes you stronger.
The lines the entire world MUST be rooting for in this Pandemic interestingly enough has been the catchline of the BIGGEST NUTRIFEST OF EASTERN INDIA, NUTRICEPTION 2020 organized by Sarojini Naidu College for Women (Food and Nutrition Department). If we quote the Convener of NUTRICEPTION 2020 Dt Rima Mandal (HOD, Dept of Food and Nutrition, SNCW) “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”. She says, ‘We have planned this event a lot earlier in conjunction with our Prime Minister’s appeal of Poshan Month celebration but Corona and the nationwide lockdown robbed us off the opportunity to go live. We had a choice to back off but we decided to carry on and bring the entire programme to a digital platform pertaining to the idea of a NEW DIGITAL INDIA and now we are happy to have a platform where we are getting massive responses from all corners of India. We also thank all our partners to help us make the event reach the masses and create a platform for Nutrition Awareness and Virtual Talent Showcasing from all over India. We are extremely glad to inform that we have also got responses from Bangladesh, Malaysia, Singapore, and a few European countries as well. We look forward to bring this event Live next year along with Online Virtual Events’.
