- Self Defence techniques event was organized by E-Cell in association with Women Development Centre (WDC) on 1st February 2020 at mLAC Quadrangle, to empower our students and make them learn self defence for their own safety and survival. The esteemed resource persons for the event were Mr. Karthik S. Kateel and Mrs. Shobha Latha from Swaraksha for Women Trust (R). The event was themed ‘National Girl Child Day’, with the purpose of spreading awareness among people about all the inequalities girls face in the Indian society and promote girl child development. Mr. Karthik educated the students on being aware of the things happening around them because his studies on crime showed that criminals had often chosen those targets, who were unaware of their surroundings and also not knowing what is going on around them. He also gave a practical demonstration of his five special copyrighted Self-Defence techniques. The crowd gathered was left with the quote that “Self-Defence is not just a set of techniques; it’s just a state of mind and it begins with the belief that you are worth defending”.
