Wa­hal, Di­rec­tor Projects- Pub­lic Di­plo­macy Fo­rum, is more about the re­al­i­sa­tion, aware­ness and about of the im­por­tance of cot­ton in the daily wardrobe and how cool and lux­u­ri­ous fab­ric it ac­tu­ally is.

Women na­tion builders were also awarded with Heart and Soul Iconic awards .The guests of hon­our were Tara Gandhi, Padma Vib­hushan Sonal Mans­ingh, Padhma Shree Sho­vana Traxl Narayan, Dr Udit Raj, Abha Dalmia,renu Hus­sain, Hamza Yahia Cheri, Am­bas­sador of Al­ge­ria, Dr Sabit Suba­sic, Am­bas­sador Of Bos­nia and Kan­haiya Lal Ganju, Con­sul Gen­eral (H Y ) and Ramola Bachchan.

Cot­ton is not just a fab­ric- it is a phi­los­o­phy, it is a so­cial and eco­nomic re­al­ity, it is med­i­ta­tion, it is a win­dow into our her­itage of crafts and tex­tiles, it is dig­nity of labour, it takes us back to our roots, it con­nects us to the soil, it con­nects us to our an­ces­tors. Cot­ton con­nects cul­tures and so­ci­eties and is hence a uni­fy­ing force.” – Ratan Kaul, Founder Pres­i­dent, Pub­lic Di­plo­macy Fo­rum
