    Who amongst us has been unclear or not known what to do when a loved one passes away? What if your loved one wanted to donate their organs or kept important bank, property or insurance documents somewhere and you were completely clueless ? Even before Covid- 19 plagued the world, no one was immortal. Hence when death is inevitable, why make it harder on your loved ones ? There is no reason why grieving loved ones should run pillar to post. Hence it is best to be prepared, as much as one possibly can, in uncertain times. This legal committee event is not for women or men alone but should be attended by one and all since it affects everyone !

    BE PREPARED IN UNCERTAIN TIMES…Your legacy handbook aims to offer a simplified yet complete transparent system to organize everyone's life. Being the basis for a wealth guide – the event will help EVERYONE organize not only valuable papers, important information, records of possessions but also determine what is important to an individual or a family.

    It is a great tool and extremely valuable to understand it from a legal perspective and what is admissible in Court as organizing personal, financial and business information can be intimidating. In emergencies and uncertain times, being prepared can help in the simplest ways and be helpful to a caregiver or someone managing the affairs of an individual since it collects all the important information in one place.

    The guest speakers for the session will be - Hon’ble. Mr. Justice G. S. Sistani (Retd.) and Ms. Salonee Sanghvi.

    Justice G. S. Sistani retired from the Delhi High Court earlier this year. As a lawyer, he was appointed as Amicus Curiae in several cases by the High Court and worked pro bono for the Delhi High Court Legal Services Committee.

    Time:  3:30 pm

    Since travel plans are currently impacted virtual cruising will take you to the heart of every destination and fulfil your wanderlust.

    Cruising has been viewed negatively & the safety of its guests questioned, yet few are aware of the highest standards of sanitisation maintained by cruise liners during normal times. Post COVID measures sit at a far higher level making cruising the most experiential & safest form of travel & tourism. Young travel professionals unequivocally stated that Cruise Tourism will be the first of the block once all travel restrictions are withdrawn.

    Since founding and operating ‘Aqua Expeditions’ 13 years ago, it has been the vision and mission of Mr. Francesco Galli Zugaro to create intimate, small ship expeditions to distant parts of the world. What Aqua has stood for since inception, has now come to the forefront, “Access is the measure of luxury”.

    Mr. Francesco Galli Zugaro, CEO and founder of Aqua Expeditions will be in conversation with Mr. Keshav Arya, Partner in PureLuxe by KFT Corporation, Mumbai & will take you on a virtual journey down the Mekong River on Aqua Mekong & through the Komodo National Park, Spice Islands & Raja Rampat in Indonesia on Aqua Blu.

    While doing so, they will portray the variety of excursion possibilities & most importantly cover the new higher safety & sanitation standards under their post COVID measures.

  • A Blooming Story of Mr. Ankit Agarwal - 5th August 2020

    A Blooming Story of Mr. Ankit Agarwal - 5th August 2020


    Day:       Wednesday
    Time:   3:30 pm
              Through Video Conferencing on Zoom

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you for an inspiring dialogue between social entrepreneur and influencer - Mr. Ankit Agarwal, Founder and CEO of Kanpur Flowercycling Pvt Ltd. and a well-known journalist and writer - Ms. Devna Gandhi.

    Eight million metric tonnes of flowers are scattered in India’s temples and mosques every year. These flowers are a symbol of devotion and thus believed that these sacrosanct flowers should be discarded into water bodies like the River Ganges to respect their sanctity. Sadly, these sacred flowers rot and create havoc in the fragile ecosphere of the water body and leach into the groundwater.

    Phool.co, a brand of Kanpur Flowercycling Pvt Ltd is a social enterprise that preserves the Ganges River by collecting the floral waste from holy places that is dumped in the river and flower cycling (up-cycling) it into patented fertilizer and incense sticks and in the process providing employment and livelihood to many underprivileged women.

    Hear the story of real grit and courage of a young entrepreneur listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2018, as he sets about cleaning the river Ganges of its gigantic amounts of temple waste that is steadily killing the ecosystem and further breaking barriers by employing marginalized women and giving them the dignity long denied to them.

    Understand the importance and process of flower cycling as Mr. Agarwal will demonstrate how the innovative products are made using the flower waste.

    Mr. Agarwal inspires by example to take action and create the larger-than-life impact you wish to see happen and change what seems inevitably insurmountable and beyond you!

    Food & Mental Health by Ms. Kinita Kadakia Patel - 21st July 2020

    Time:   3:30 pm

    Food does affect the mood. Hormonal changes are normal in an individual’s journey of life. More so in women, there is a distinct correlation between hormones and mood which at many levels is associated with food.

    There are certain foods that scientifically act as potent anti-depressants and these foods are none other than the yummy cookies, pastries and chocolates.

    But when we are trying to maintain the weight & achieve certain body composition goals, these high calorie carbohydrate rich foods are eliminated first.

    • Is there a right way to get a balance between mood & food?
    • To get that “happy feeling," and still meet our body goals?
    • Does a compromised state of mind get better with eating cookies?
    • Should we sit with a bucket of ice-cream to overcome our Monday blues?
    • Does a bar of chocolate eaten on a bad mood day justify our food choice?

    Kinita Kadakia Patel is India’s leading Sports Nutritionist specializes in sport-specific diets along with weight management. She has established a leading nutrition centre called 'MEALpyramid'. She is the official Sports Nutritionist for the Mumbai Indians team of the Indian Premier League. She holds a graduate & post-graduate degree (MSc.) in Dietetics with research in Sports Nutrition.
