    I am so glad to see such events happening for our youth. I hope to hear of more such events so that our young people can meet and network.

    it would also be nice to have a meeting of Parsi business women to network as well.

    Glad that such programs are arranged. I would like to make a point though, and that is that such programs should be better advertised.
    I got to know of it only now.
