It gives me great pleasure to know that Animation Galaxy
, a world-wide on-line information hub for the animation industry, is organizing a ONE-DAY slogan contest on the theme of "TAKE A STAND : Protect the Woman", on the occasion of its first anniversary on June 1, 2013. It is also heartening to know that a very meaningful beginning has been made to marry animation with a social purpose - a union that certainly portends momentous dimensions.
The art of animation itself knows no barriers, with the sky as the limit to imagination. It is certainly a wonderful, creative and effective means of communicating the message that women need assiduously in today's environment of turmoil. It would not be wrong to say that she is an "endangered species". I am sure that this contest will yield significant benefits to make animated stories on restoring women to their stature of respect, love and strength, with a sense of social justice.
I wish you and your team warm felicitations on your FIRST ANNIVERSARY and all the best in this endeavor, with all hopes that the message for Protection of Women required today, actually reaches the destination it deserves. I TAKE THE STAND.
